The back panel is a little bit crowded. Some indicators are small printed and sometimes it is not easy to see where to connect without the additional lighting.

The patented ESS SABRE PRO Premier DAC tech, as well as DAC on Pure Ground concept, reduce ground noise in order to avoid any sounds in the silent scenes. The most tender and softest sounds are clear and accurate.

The amp could be combined with the wireless speakers to add audio playback in up to 9 rooms. If to connect the AV with a front presence speaker, it is possible to use the Virtual Speaker tech for reproducing up to 11-channel sound even if to connect the 7-channel system. However, in this case, it is necessary to waste some time to get all the channels for it because the menus aren’t straightforward.
