Result: Absolute Top Class. 93 points. Stereoplay Highlight.
Evaluation: “You cannot wish for more from a digital music player. DAS’ Model 2 enchants with its stunning design, extremely high user convenience and absolute reliability. Musically, it plays precisely and transparently and – unusual for a digital player – highly emotionally. If you have missed soul in modern digital playback devices, you definitely should audition DAS’ Model 2.”
