SPEC is one of those companies that I invariably associate with the so-called. good old school audio. New models hit the market not very often and only when the team working on them manages to refine them in even the smallest details. This was the case with each of the devices of this brand that I dealt with. Only once I had a slight doubt about the RMP-X3EX network player (did you notice the close affinity of the designation with the tested DAC?), which had one conventional (because it could be easily omitted) weakness in the form of suggested support for playback with the help of Windows Media Player.
