The Calyx DAC 24/192 feeds the rest of your rig an accurate, highly focused image of what is on the disc or computer file. It takes you right back into the recording studio or the venue of live recordings if that may be the case. With older recordings it takes you back in time right along with the technologies used to make them. There is not much room for music to hide in the Calyx, yet it responds to various footers and cables to different degrees so it is tunable. It sets a very high standard near the front end of your system, which puts a burden upon what comes further downstream. In my case, the Calyx provided revelation and joy from both CD and computer sourced music. It is a brick that will rock with the best of them…or waltz, if you prefer.
