In the current edition of Professional Audio (August 2016) our DA converter and preamplifier Director is on trial. The review closes with the final grade “top class, very good”. The price-performance ratio also was graded “very good” . You can download (pdf) the complete review (German) here.
Here you will already find a short excerpt:
“The Director convinced with extreme stable and dry bass sounds and the coolness to process even harshest bass impulses. High- and mid frequencies sound very detailed. The SPL Director impresses with the way it processes even the finest dynamic differences even at a minimal signal level. The ‘microcontrast’ is top notch. The Director merciless unmasks “mistakes in recordings and is therefore ideal when it comes to mixing or mastering”.
Professional Audio coclusion:
“The SPL Director is a lucky strike when it comes to DA converter. It will equally enthuse Hifi- and studio user with its uncompromising honest sound.”
