Lab commentary

According to the best Audionet tradition, the ART G3 is a metrologically flawless hifi component, the guys from Bochum have a hang of that. Distortion figures, S/N ratios,  coverter linearity, channel equality – everything is impeccable, sometimes even on the verge of feasibility. A striking feature is the high output voltage of 3.5 volts which is clearly above the 2-volt standard that Sony/Philips once recommended for CD players. But on the other hand its standby power consumption is exemplary already today. No discussion, lab mark »very good«.
