Lab commentary

The analogue preamp of the Audionet DNP shines with outstandingly low distortion figures and excellent S/N ratios – it can hardly get any better. The distortion values of the converter section also mark the bounds of feasibility with 16 bit, the S/N ratios are very good. A first-class work all the way, the DNP is impeccable.
