Summary: While I like the functionality of the stock Unidisc SC, the sound quality, especially when playing red book CDs, leaves something to be desired. Then the Dynamik power suply caught my attention and $700 is a relatively cheap option compared to what you have to pay for Naim's Hi-cap etc. After talking to my dealer I decided to get it done, and man! I can't be happier with the Dynamik!
Summary: I had a dealer demo of some digital linn streaming devices at the top of the range. As I think with my head as well as my heart I was'nt really impressed. Yes maybe if you really could afford to go that way. I was listening to ripped music on dacmagic though my naim and spendor and had given up on spending on digital to replace my vinyl. A few weeks later I saw the unidisk going very cheep so snapped it up.
Summary: I got one of these at a very good price on ebay. Iv been streaming music through dacs and was, I would have to admit, very cynical of digital source material. I went to my local hifi dealer and listened to his very expensive linn ds sytem. Now I would'nt say no to owning this sysyem but on my budget I would, if you know what I mean, It did get me looking around though, I found the Unisdisk going for a very good price, Like the reviews say, this really is a fun gizmo, I...
Summary: Unidisk SC is in a category by itself. There is NO competition, so to compare this to any other reference would be impossible. I am in the commercial recording business (mixing, mastering, post etc...) and have used virtually every kind of recording/playback system on the market. Unidisk is hands-down one of the best playback units I have ever owned. It's "sound quality" is second to none. It is one of the most engaging pieces of equipment I have ever heard.
Summary: The Unidisk SC is an expensive, but satisfying decision. CD audio replay is great and surpasses my previous reference-class T+A set. SACD replay is incredibly "natural" and "right", even with "only" two matched frontspeakers (Linn Akurat 212's). DVD-play and -sound shines, and all "original" modes have great width and depth of soundstage. There's also a number of DSP-modes ("phantom", "3-stereo") that don't add much to well-recorded originals.
