for the Decco

I have worked in the audio business for over 35 years because of my passion for music. I have seen many audio companies come and go, but every
once in a while a product comes along that 'shatters the myths' of cost and performance. The DECCO integrated amplifier I believe is a perfect example of such a product. The most important thing that this little amplifier provides is a 'window to audiophile musicality' at a price point
anyone can afford. If you have never experianced anything except main stream stereo audio components, you owe it to yourself to audition this
little amplifier with any audio source. If an I-Pod is your point of refference, you just might be supprised at how good it can sound!
Signalpath International is now introducing its step-up model "NOVA" which
I hope to review soon.

Product Weakness: Power output, minor QC issues.
Product Strengths: Musicality, Flexability in connections analog & digital, simple remote control, additional pre-out.
