Thank You! LG-

this integrated is on my short list to demo. I would really be interested in reading about mating this amp w/ the ML No. 512
CD/SACD spinner!

Thanks for the review.

Do you have the jitter spectrum graph taken for the USB input? Also, it'd be nice to see the same graph with 24 bit data? At this price point, I'd expect the Levinson to handle jitter better. Based on the graph, It seems they are relying strictly on the chipset to do manage the jitter.

Thanks for your feedback!

A "professional" audio reviewer using a subwoofer ?? Bel Canto ? Bryston ? And electrostatic speakers for transistorized amps ?? Oh wow ! I must be missing something.

Also, Silverstone, even a $499 DAC these days will not let you hear the so-called "jitter". Try the Chord Electronics Mojo amd, you'll know what i'm talking about
