Exogal Comet and Ion Combo

The brand new Exogal Ion PowerDAC has arrived. The Ion is specifically designed to work with the already pretty terrific sounding Comet DAC. It connects to the Comet with a single (included) cable and acts as a power amplifier. This is not your run-of-the-mill stereo power amplifier though. The Ion includes its own digital processing to augment what is available in the Comet. The processing horsepower on tap here goes way beyond most other DACs, and so does the incredible sound. The Comet/Ion combo is fast and detailed, presents a huge soundstage with pinpoint imaging and makes for a hugely enjoyable listen.
