The SD-025 DAC/Streamer has more in common with a luxury watch than you might think. An exclusive, high-end watch provides the ultimate precision, superior technology, and complete perfection down to the tiniest detail. The craftsmanship of watch components contributes to achieve the accuracy of the watch. Just like a watch, with the SD-025 DAC/Streamer you can clearly sense how each component works together closely to transform a sound recording into an extraordinary musical experience of the highest quality.
Using one of our favourite turntables with our Masterpiece MP-P201 phono stage as a reference point, the creation of the SCD-025 Mk.II was all about creating the very best analogue sound from a digital source. Simply put, we wanted to create a more ‘musical’ CD player than anything else available on the market.
What has been achieved by our engineers is nothing short of astonishing. Every element of this amplifier has been obsessed over and refined to the point of perfection creating the component we present here. A powerhouse of an amplifier in a neat, handsome chassis with optional DAC and phono stage. A truly integrated amplifier for the discerning audiophile looking to preserve space in their listening environment.
The SIA-025 Mk.II is a technical and critical triumph – an integrated amplifier with five inputs (balanced and unbalanced), a preamplifier output (for bi-amping purposes), balanced speaker outputs, and a full bypass function offering compatibility with external surround processors.
