“I agree with John Marks: Bricasti Design’s M1 is a Class A+ digital processor. I would add that it is priced relatively reasonably for what it offers in terms of both sound and build quality. For my own needs, I would have preferred two AES/EBU inputs rather than one, though the lack of a USB input can be readily compensated for by using one of the asynchronous USB adapters from (in ascending order of price) Musical Fidelity, Halide, or Empirical Audio. But all things considered, the Bricasti M1 is a worthy successor to the Mark Levinson No.30.6 as New England’s stakeholder in state-of-the-art D/A processors. Enthusiastically recommended.”
