Crutchfield Customer Review (What's this?)
I got this to hook up to what I considered the weakest link in my system, which was a Sony 400 disc CD player. It is connected to a Nad M3 and a pair of Paradigm studio 100s ( and a few subs). It sounded good before adding the Rlink, but the depth just wasn't there and it sounded a little "thin". I connected the Rlink via the optical out from the CD player and WOW! From the very first note, the difference was apparent. The increased sound stage, the fullness and quality of the sound- it's all there. It was the cure for a CD player that just didn't compare to the equipment that it was connected to, and has saved the Sony from the trash heap. I have been listening to this DAC for about two months now, and I am absolutely happy with this investment. Well worth the price. An excellent way to upgrade an old component !
Pros: Good, quality sound, price.
Cons: None so far.
