AUDIOBACON Best In Class Award
The Denafrips Terminator is all about musical essence. It is the most transparent and most detailed sounding DAC I’ve heard so far. It’s able to reveal every subtlety in a recording – and does this better than the pricier DACs.
These were the recurring themes:
Energetic, vivid, fun, and alive.
Incredible outlining and delineation of everything.
Supremely holographic. Spacious in all directions.
Velvety smooth, precise, and solid imaging.
No signs of grain or digital hash.
Gradations and melodic continuum, even in the vibrancy.
Never congested or convoluted – even with the most complicated passages.
Technicals covered – composed weight, resolution, delicacy, physicality, essence, articulation, and air.
Impactful low-end – some of the tightest bass I’ve heard from a DAC.
