HiFi World Reviews the NOVAFiDELITY X40
[The] NOVAFiDELITY X40 could be just the perfect front-end for your system.
The X40 is one of the most fully-featured, thoroughly musical and satisfying components out there at the moment.
The X30 impressed us - but the X40 takes things to another level. Chiefly this is down to an upgraded power supply and the use of the Sabre32 DAC - which brings a new level of resolution and clarity to the sound.
Loadinq a DSD download of the San Francisco Symphony's 'Mahler No 1' onto the hard disk and the atmosphere, sheer strength of the orchestra and overall musical punch is eerie
[It] is easily capable of being matched with amplifiers and loudspeakers costing a lot more than its asking price.Which, all in all, makes it a bit of a bargain.
