Stereophile “Recommended Components” A+ Rating

“The best performance with High Resolution data files.”

The new Noble Line N31 CD-DAC has received a rare A+ rating in the Stereophile April, 2018 issue.

John Atkinson concluded that digital sound doesn’t get any better than what he heard from the N31. Furthermore he noted that the MBL offered 21 bits of resolution—the current state of the art of digital audio. This prompted John Atkinson the measurer to agree with John Atkinson the listener: “Digital audio engineering doesn’t get any better.”
