    Power and Precision for Hi-Res

    sx-n30_hires.jpgAt the heart of the Elite SX-N30 resides a Direct Energy amplifier that uses short signal paths for purer and more dynamic sound quality—a superb choice for listening to High-Resolution audio files. With a discrete high-output amplifier, the SX-N30 achieves a high S/N and signal transmission through component layout and individual circuit block optimization. With 85 watts per channel, you get sound that's not only powerful and dynamic, but also bass reproduction that's deep and sustained.

    Pros:

    Low Cost

    Simple to use

    Good and clean power

    Pre-outs

    Subwoofer support

    Streaming ability - local and internet based

    Plays DSD without conversion

     

    Cons:

    Streaming does not include many services

    Network stability is not the best

    No room correction

    No filtering and crossover settings available for the subwoofer output

    Android control app is not great

     

    This integrated amp is a low-cost way to support analog as well as digital sources with plenty of power.  There are several ways to stream both local files as well as internet sourced files and services.  None of the "hi-res" streaming services are supported although you can stream local "hi-res" pcm and dsd files.

     

    I had a few instances where high bitrate files stuttered while streaming even though the integrated amp was ethernet connected to a 10Gbps network.  When I did get a steady connection, the sound quality was very good through my connected Elac Unifi B5 bookshelf speakers.  This is not an audiophile product, but would be a decent choice for a bedroom/garage/office type of system.
