REVIEWS & RATINGS

Ayazi DAC mk2 & 3R Master Time Black Star – Stereophile

“…The Ideon components provide the kind of musical thrills one might hear through the original Quad electrostatic speakers: a crystal-clear, essentially neutral, hyperdetailed window onto the music that captures every nuance without sacrificing music’s weight and body… It can play every kind of music with all of its strengths intact. I simply found listening to certain genres on it to be a revelation…”

Ayazi DAC mk2 & 3R Master Time Black Star – Twittering MAchines

“…There’s no better surprise in hifi than being startled by an unexpected level of musical engagement. The Ideon Ayazi mk2 DAC and 3R Master Time Black Star combination is among the most captivating digital solutions I’ve had the pleasure of spending real time with, offering a view into music that’s as unobstructed as I’ve heard.”

Ayazi DAC mk2 & 3R Master Time Black Star – Part-Time Audiophile

“…That’s why I really enjoyed the Ideon Ayazi Mk. 2 DAC and the 3R Master Time Black Star. I consistently achieved excellent sound from several sources and wildly different systems, and it provided me with a clear view of what the big DACs can do, converters like, I dunno, the Ideon Audio Absolute. I really want to hear what that can do that this rig can’t. Or maybe I shouldn’t listen to it at all—because I’ll want THAT.

Highly recommended, and a Reviewer’s Choice..”

Ayazi mk2 DAC – Sound Rebels

“..Ideon sounds like competition on much higher price levels, where it does not need to prove anything to anybody, and instead of showing muscles, it makes music count. Because it is the music, which is most important here, and the Ayazi presents it in such an engaging way, that if instead of looking for more revolutionary solutions or re-inventing the wheel, you just want music to soothe you, then contact with the Greek DAC could be like return to normality for you.
