Hi I had a wavelength brick for about half a year and seriously hated it. for 1700 dollars, it was probably the worst product build that I have seen. I'm guessing wavelength expects buyers to be impressed by the uniqueness of having a USB input and the idea of a 1200 dollar transport that's as good as 10K transport or so forth, which h'm sure the babyboomers think is the coolest thing ever.... I'm young so I'm much less impressed. Sound: the brick basically lacks balls. no dynamics, a crunched soundstage, rolled off highs, inpercise imaging. not good. the cosecant is a different story.
