Review of Altmann Attraction DAC and BYOB amplifier

Hi Charles !

I finally received the package Saturday morning.

I have listening since, and I have to say I am really impressed.

I have components I can compare them to, but I don’t feel like it yet. I am too busy enjoying them.

This combo: laptop as source, feeding the attraction dac via airport express>BYOB amp>quad 57, is really magic.

An audiophile friend who just left, confessed that what he heard, and then saw , the diminutive size of the system, the use of battery, completely shattered his conceptions.  

As the components break in, I will start doing comparisons with other components that I have, especially the vinyl rig.

At one point, I replaced the quads with a pair of JBL 4312 studio monitors I was planning to put up for sale.

Your 10W amp drove them magnificently.

I was particularly impressed with the quality and quantity of bass, and also fairly high listening levels with such a small amp!

After this the jbl are staying, they will be used at parties… But then what will I do with my Voice of the Theater, or with my modified pair of JBL L300?

As you can see, plenty of experimentations to do. I hope I can persuade some friends to buy from you.

Unfortunately Tahiti is a very tiny market. With products of such quality, I am sure business will be very good for you.

Thanks again for creating these products for us !
