Metronome LE PLAYER CD PLAYER DAC [Expired]


no longer for sale

For Metronome, entry-level means Le Player – a chunky 15kg aluminium-clad unit that promises a large slice of the performance of its pricier siblings, but at a fraction of the cost.
With digital inputs and outputs including a fabulous asynchronous USB, the LE PLAYER is equally at home as a DAC or A CD Player.
"There’s plenty of weight and authority on offer, but the emphasis here is on agility and articulation. This is a responsive performer that defines transients with crisp precision and control.

Those qualities are made all the more obvious when we load Tchaikovsky’s 1812 Overture into the disc compartment. Le Player takes the wild dynamic swings in stride, delivering them with a spellbinding combination of composure and drama. There’s plenty of attack here, but also top class refinement that stops things going too far.

The Metronome’s sense of organisation is impressive, as is its ability to keep track of low-level instrumental strands even when the piece becomes demanding. It’s this ability to keep control yet avoid sounding controlling that’s so impressive.

Le Player may lack the sheer visual drama of its pricier stable mates, but its sound is one to treasure. Ergonomics aren’t flawless, but the overall packaging is a tempting one indeed.

If Metronome’s entry-level sounds this good, we can’t wait to hear what the company’s upmarket models sound like."
