StereoNet Reviews The Rega DAC-R

"...very impressed with the excellent sound of this unit and honestly found it to be an over achiever at the price... I have decided to purchase the review unit, as I have not found a better dac at its price point. If you are in the market for a new dac, you owe it to yourself to listen to it and make up your own mind. Recommended."
