STEPHEN MEJIAS OF STEREOPHILE WRITES:
…I know of no other CD player in the Music Hall’s price range that comes with as many high-quality digital inputs.
Music Hall’s newest and most affordable electronics are models of extreme utility. The c-dac15.3 combines a single-disc CD player and three-input (USB, TosLink, coaxial) digital-to-analog converter in a single box…
It comes with a robust AC cord and a slim remote control whose metallic charcoal finish, gold-hued buttons, and textured backside make it unusually attractive and satisfying to use.
