Here comes another awesome review on Calyx Femto DAC from Magazine-HiFi.
Some quotes from the review :-
"I admit to hesitating for a short while before finally admitting that this is the best DAC we have had in our hands so far." "To get back to music and the Femto, and thinking only of the brass and the piano, I’ve never had the chance to hear anything like such rightness of timbre and associated dynamics on my sound system. " "The only thing you really have to know about this converter is that it respects musical sound, or at least that it delivers the goods without artifice, without artifacts… the music, just the music. Whether it’s from my laptop or from the CD player, the DAC’s musicality came through, and at the same time I rediscovered P.R.A.T (Pace, Rhythm and Timing): I was tapping my foot to my favorite tunes." "The Calyx Femto DAC has to be heard in your system at least once. You’ll never hear its sounds the same way and it will open the door to the possibilities of tomorrow. The digital medium has never been closer to convincing me it’s mature."

Calyx Femto DAC has awarded Reviewers' Choice from Soundstage !
Some strong words from the reviewer, Doug Schneider :-
"... In fact, every piece of music I played
through the Femto sounded better than it ever had before -- which is why
I have to say that this is the best-sounding (and best-looking) DAC
I’ve ever heard. "
Here is another wonderful review on Calyx 24/192 DAC by Soundstage.com
Quoted from the review :-
".. Calyx’s DAC 24/192 is a beautifully built, elegantly styled digital-to-analog converter that sounded exceedingly neutral and utterly clean in my system. It’s also capable of very high resolution that’s just shy of the very best -- I wouldn’t hesitate to partner it with some of the finest equipment out there, regardless of price..."

Dear Friends, Wish to share another wonderful write up on Calyx Femto DAC. Quoted from the review :" .. Femto allowed me to rediscover my music collection. Simply put, the Femto makes rescordings sound real and lifelike. The immediately emotional response is not about the usual hi-fi superlatives, but more the feeling of being at the recording venue, immersed in the music." ".. Femto would bring such a substantial improvement to my system. I would generally be hesitant to describe a product of this price as a bargain, but the Femto truly is one."
