Calyx Femto DAC

December 21, 2012

Marc Philip has posted a review of the Calyx Femto DAC ($6850) at Magazine Hi-Fi. His conclusions:

“Frankly, the only fault I can find with the Femto DAC is its price. If it weren’t for that, it would be staying in my system as a reference, until the next discovery. The metal around a circuit like this costs a lot of money per kilo.

Careful, though, don’t get me wrong about the price. Even if its internal circuitry isn’t super-sophisticated, this DAC holds up in terms of sonic performance. I would be very curious to try it against some of the “big boys” at $10,000 or more, never mind what was inside and comparing only the units’ sonic performance, certainly not fame, supposed reputation or Ego.”
