THE SOUND GALLERIES SGM 2015 – CHAPTER 1, WITH THE T+A DAC8 DSD DAC BY DAVID W. ROBINSON
The combination of the Sound Galleries SGM2015 and the T+A DAC8 DSD turns streaming music into a real magic carpet ride. I listened for months, and had a number of visitors into our listening room during that time. The consensus was unanimous: Everyone from casual listeners to industry pros were really knocked out by the Sound Galleries SGM2015 Music Server paired with the T+A DAC8 DSD. There was not one negative reaction during all of the time that the T+A unit was here. Just a lot of “Wow!” going down. Nor have I had a bad moment listening to this tandem…the streamin’ just kept streamin’ along.
No doubt about it. This is a fabulous music server, and a remarkable DAC. The two of them make beautiful music together. And at a combined price of USD$20,000…well, you can spend a lot more money than this in this high-end audio category. A lot more.
Want a music server that you can live with? This is it.
Want a DAC that can do up to 8x DSD with excellent quality and a reasonable price? This is it.
Want a streaming audio and DAC that can be remotely supported without hassle. This is it.
I therefore give them a “Ye Olde Editor’s very highly recommended!” with real enthusiasm.
If you have the available funds, then I don’t know a better and more flexible streaming music, computer-based audio, and LAN-based DSD DAC combination at this time. Put it at the very top of your shopping list.
