review in lite magazine

The Lifestyle & Technik magazine lite has reviewed our CD player and D/A converter PLAYER II.

Editor Volker Frech came to the conclusion:

“With the PLAYER II, Accustic Arts sets an audiophile exclamation mark: The CD player shines with an outstanding top loader drive and an excellent DAC, which provides highly accurate, low-jitter conversion with its upsampling and converts HiRes files up to PCM 192 Kilohertz/24 Bit and DSD files up to DSD128. It also provides this capability as a stand-alone DAC via three S/PDIF inputs and one USB input. With its digital outputs, the Player II can also be used as a pure CD transport. With its analog outputs, on the other hand, it excels by offering both an unbalanced and a slightly superior balanced connection. But this is a graduation on the highest level, because the Player II delivers a playback on the whole, which is characterized by breathtaking imaging power, excellent spatial staggering and dynamic delicacy. In addition, the precise sampling provides a calm and relaxed atmosphere, which further enhances the listening pleasure. Thus, the Player II offers the finest transformation, especially for audiophile recordings and reference recordings”.

The editors of lite awarded an overall rating of 98/100 points.
