Description

“The Series 3 extends the Alpha DAC Reference’s status as the ne plus ultra in digital decoding, and will remain at the front end of my reference system….The Series 3’s deeper bass, wider dynamic expression, superior bottom-end articulation and textural resolution, and enhanced top-end openness are clearly major advances….With less accomplished DACs, it sounds as if a whole layer of very low-level information has gone missing.”

—Robert Harley, The Absolute Sound, October 2019

Comments by experienced third party industry listeners after hearing the Reference Series 3

“It’s like a transparent window on the microphone feed because the DAC is so transparent.

The resolution of the ambient halo of air around instrumental outlines is astonishing.

Even Red Book has bloom and dimensionality.”

“I sat down to evaluate the DAC. Two hours later I realized I had forgotten the task at hand and

was completely lost in the music, captivated by the artistry of the performances.

I can give no higher compliment.”
