QUANTITY


DETAILS

Simplicity and power.

The major leap forward in sound of this system comes from two things - the speakers and the DAC. In general we consider most DACs to be relatively uninspiring. The Accuphase DC-37 is a unicorn in the world of digital. For some reason it sounds magical and can captivate your attention on par with really good turntable playback. But if you are a digital source person and you want this magic, this is the only one we've found that really does it. The sound of course has all the technical perfection one could expect. Subterranean bass, tactile mids and infinite soundstage depth, but you forget about any of those things when enjoying the sum of the parts.

The second game changer in this system is the Harbeth Monitor 40.2. Refined over many years, the 40.2 is simply our favourite speaker ever made. It has the integration and delicacy of the finest small bookshelf, but coupled to the explosive dynamics of a large speaker. There is no substitute for a great 12" bass driver in being able to energize a room. 

The Harbeths are powered by the comparatively affordable Accuphase E-480 which is simply the best integrated amp ever made. With 180w/ch it has more than enough power to perfectly control the Monitor 40.2 and also is suitably transparent to pass through all the high resolution micro detail of the DAC.

Finally, the streamer is a little gem that we absolutely could not live without. The Bluesound Node 2i. While the built in DAC is only average on this $599 streamer, the streaming capabilities outperform absolutely every streamer on the market regardless of price, many costing 20x as much. Perfect bit perfect hi-res is wrapped in simply the easiest to use and most bullet proof app in existence. Since the Accuphase is turning that perfect stream into perfect sound anyway, we'll happily save the money and go with this extremely simple yet almost perfect sound.
