Mercury in HiFi einsnull

For the edition 4/20 of German HiFi einsnull magazine, Philipp Schneckenburger wrote a great review about our Mastering DA-converter SPL Mercury. You can find the complete review in the magazine, here we provide you with an English summary:

“Especially haptically, Mercury has turned out wonderfully, from the pressure points of the buttons, to the material thickness, to the excellent drag and precision of the output control, which is an Alps RK27 potentiometer.”

“SPL provides its converter with numerous connections, whereby the studio genes are also clearly recognizable here.”

Technology:

“Inside Mercury, the 120V technology is used twice because PCM and DSD signals require different filters. This is clearly noticeable in the sound of this flat digital pro device, because Mercury actually had a great dynamic range in the listening test.”

Sound:

“SPL’s convertor also doesn’t show any weakness when it comes to precision. Attacks exactly hit the right spot and thanks to the good response characteristics, the tone remains in the room only as long as it should.”

“Whoever gets involved with the device will be rewarded by Mercury with a great sound.”

Conclusion:

“With Mercury, SPL cleverly combines professional standards with the comfort that home users need. Excellently equipped and packed with clever technology, the mastering DAC delivers an excellent sound experience.”
