Re: Is Esoteric's DV50 any good?
Prior to the DV50 I used a Linn Unidisk 1.1 which I would say was a bit more analog sounding, although it didn't provide the detail the Esoteric does. The Esoteric is a MUCH better built unit too.
Running the DV50 through tubes in my pre-amp really gives me the best of both worlds. I do not regret the switch from the much much pricier 1.1 to the DV50. Both are fantastic players.
