Well, my IDA-16 has about 70 hours on it. Still forming my impressions but the sound is definitely coming together with more playing time.
Since so much attention given to the digital side of things, I wanted to give some love to the lowly AUX line level analog inputs. My LP’s sound pretty great through the Bottlehead Seduction phono stage I’ve been using for years. I mean, REALLY good, as in “better than Redbook CD’s.” Smooth, clean and holographic. I understand that the analog inputs on this unit are not digitized, so it must be really good in and of itself. Just sharing.
