Not so much a review (yet) since the Accession has only been powered up less than a day . . . .

But first impressions are - wow! What a stonking sound Big smile !

Music has a very tangible quality, and bass is deep but detailed and very well controlled. I'm noticing details in mixes that I hadn't before, too. It's being used with an Elevator and Zyx R100 - the dip switches being set to "off" (ie. up).

The variable output works a treat with my ADC, and means the end of inline attenuators and phono t-pieces. Just set a mid-point gain level in the software, and the rotary output on the Accession can then be used to get the right input level for the best recording. Simple and very effective.

More from me when the unit has burned in, and more albums have been put on the clock . . . Wink
