    Super quick dispatch and friendly call to let me know when to expect the item. I would buy from Richard again.

  2. David Johnson (verified owner)

    Astonishing performance for a tiny Dac, massive improvement to my Leema Elements amp. Excellent service as always from Audiologica, on back order but delivered in half the expected time. Thanks again.
