User Impressions of Dan's Reference System
Nicki N., Canada. Singer/Songwriter, Sound Engineer
An incredibly high ceiling and sense of space without any noise or hiss. Everything sounds so smooth and supple ...no harshness or fatigue at all. The individuality and nuances of instruments and vocals are quite identifiable.
Steven J., Canada. Music Teacher (Strings, Vocals)
The music sounded as pure as a live studio experience ...truly present and immersive with incredible detail and dynamic range. If sound was water, it soaks you wet.
Michael K., Canada. Classically Trained Pianist
The sense of space created was unique to my recorded listening experience. I could hear exactly what instruments were in what position and with excellent timbre. The impression was of a live performance ...a wall of music would engulf me and I would listen to the little intricacies as I never have before.
Mike B., Canada. Sound Engineer, MuchMusic, CityTV (Toronto)
This is silky smooth conversion with crystal clear transients and spatial cues. Sounds like the bass amp is in the room! I find myself fully enjoying the music while also able to easily discern the mix effects and recording techniques used. Nice shit! This is as good as I have heard.
John S., Canada. Musician, Vocalist, Media & Entertainment Professional
I have finicky ears but when I heard the distinction and texture of voices, instruments and room atmosphere, my first thought was "Wow! This is not digital music, it is too clear and natural to be digital.”
John V.S., Canada. Musician, Recording Engineer, Live Audio Technician
The level of detail is quite nice ...I'm hearing things in the track I did not know were there. Vocals have a natural warmth and I can definitely sense the room and the space around the instruments.

Ray G., USA
When it comes to isolating your digital chain from your analog chain, there is nothing better than an optical air gap.
Michael D., UK
Timbre and transients are off the charts. I'm picking up ambience that I never did before. OPTO•DX is un-muffling the f*ck out of the music. It certainly feels endgame.
Neil V.M., Ireland
The best way to eliminate the RFI issue completely is with OPTO•DX. It is one of the most significant upgrades that I have ever made to my Hi-Fi system.
Bernard H., Austria
...much larger soundstage, better separation, better dynamics, more vivid sound ...it's the best I've heard my system.
Ken B., USA
...the reduction in noise is profound. I’ve never heard a background this black. I honestly can’t believe the sound coming from my speakers.
Alfie M., Canada
I find it's just so easy to listen...lots going on in 3D too...the sound from OPTO•DX is pretty astounding!
Steve A., Australia
OPTO•DX is a fantastic product...more depth and holographic representation of the music. I have truly never heard such good sound.
Cedric W., UK
OPTO•DX is lifting up my system very nicely. The degree to which I can hear the benefits on instrument resolution is striking.
Todd N., USA
It was really hard for me to believe that there was still that much more information being blurred by RF noise. The optical isolation of OPTO•DX just takes things to a whole different level.

SRC•DX was the missing link I needed. I use an Antipodes server with HQPlayer embedded. I am now able to pass maximum quality to my TT2 in the way Chord intended... Dual BNC. The signal is stable (no dropouts) and the sound has a black background with accurately reclaimed transients. Well done Audiowise!
Bharat P., UK
OPTO•DX, for a modest investment and small footprint, has rewarded me with an emotive aural experience. My Dave goes deeper into the mix to reveal subtle details and timbre—I'm now more intimate with my favourite recordings! Less hi-fi, more flesh, blood and guts!
Robert G., USA
OPTO•DX and SRC•DX have made a huge impact. My TT2 system is better by every measure. From low level details, openness, transparency, lack of high frequency harshness, soundstage is spectacular along with being able to delineate each instrument/voice ...just fantastic.
Atilla G., Germany
SRC•DX out of the box performance is more than anyone would expect. Very well done!
Andrew H., USA
Wow, it’s amazing! SRC•DX with HQPlayer is a big step up for my Hugo 2. So analog sounding and so incredibly detailed.
