A no nonsense streamer dac

Got this streamer after suggestion from the owners of theaudio.co. To be honest initially i was skeptical in moving because am already using a chord Dac andam pretty happy with it. This unit apart from sound quality removed the hassle of another device in my chain and sounds very good for the price especially if you use roon... Buy it you wont regret.... cheers

A realization of what I'd been missing for years

The Mini-i Pro 3 replaced a Rega DAC and a Music PC as the source in my system (with a Rethm Gaanam Amp and Rethm Trishna speakers downstream). I did not expect how well this DAC/Streamer would make the system sound like! It truly lets my amp and speakers shine! To be able to really see how well my system could actually resolve, I had to go back to the proverbial Source. The system images and stages as well as it used to before, but everything else about the way it plays music has changed for the better! I'll have to pull out all the typical terms about micro and macro dynamics to start describing how great it sounds, and I'll spare you that. I hadn't been actively listening to music a whole lot over the last few years, but after the Mini-i Pro came in, I've been sitting down for hours altogether in front of the system, enjoying music like I've not been for quite a long while. I find it hard to switch it off, and every night it's an endless refrain of "one more track before I sleep" which typically goes on for another hour. I love the vivid LCD screen, the intuitive menu and ease at which the Control Knob lets me move through the options and settings, and the multiple connectivity options makes me certain I will not be limited in future. All this said, make no mistake, the best thing for me about the Mini-i Pro 3 is how good it makes music sound in my system. I'm one really happy camper! My thanks to The Audio Co for the advice, the quick delivery, and the follow ups.
