Bladelius Embla Media Player

July 6, 2011

Lam seng fatt has posted a review of the Bladelius Embla (€7700) at Hi-Fi Avenue. His conclusions:

Michael Bladelius, the owner and designer of the company, has come up with an all-in-one high-end component that performs very well. To me the only thing missing is a headphone jack.

To his credit, the Embla is a great-sounding component that covers (almost) all the bases and it certainly deserves all the accolades that it has received.

As a CD player, it sounds very smooth, detailed and rich, but when a thumb drive or hard disk with hi-res files is plugged into the USB input, its performance is elevated to another level and it would not be a misfit among the Weiss, Berkeley and dCS.
