The Musical Fidelity Encore Connect is perfect for anyone who wants to combine the incredible realism and emotional involvement of $2000.00 M6s preamplifier with a high-quality $1500.00 M3 CD player & quality DAC. The streaming is poor and we do not recommend using it. Just hook your computer to it or any music streamer like a Bluesound Node for a full streaming solution. Because the streaming is poor we have a killer deal on it. Get the $4500.00 preamp/DAC/CD player with hard drive for only $1,799.00. Just hook it to an amp or powered speakers for a full system.
These are available in silver and black.
Quantities are limited
Two year warranty
In the Hifi Pig review at $3700.00 they summed with:
"I don’t imagine that the Encore Connect is for everyone, but for those looking for an all-in-one such as this with top sound quality being the main objective, I cannot recommend it highly enough. It sat perfectly within my system hooked up to my Tri Vista 300 integrated amplifier, by the same manufacturer, and set as a source by using the line level outputs so that the Tri Vista controlled the level of volume. The sound from my resident Monitor Audio PL300ii’s or any of the loudspeakers I had in for review during the period never failed to satisfy or excite. In fact it became my “go to” source for most of the time it spent with me. I can also imagine it would be ideal at the heart of an audiophile’s office or second system. It could simply be hooked up to a pair of active speakers or an amplifier and passive speakers to produce a remarkably engaging system. Heartily recommended!"
