It’s always nice to see a fondly remembered brand back in the fold. A lot of people enjoyed the original Onix OA21 and may well be pleased to see that the circuit behind that model lives on in the DNA-50. I especially liked is its ‘back in the UK’ stance, as the quality of finish is particularly good, and it’s great to see that we can still make such well-executed products in this country. The appeal of this amp will, to a large extent, depend on whether its slimline looks do it for you; there is an awful lot of well-established competition at the price point but little of it is as discreet as the DNA-50.
