Stack Audio Link II

The Stack Audio Link II embodies the ‘small is beautiful’ ethos, this latest version is notably more musical and revealing than its predecessor and while its balance is on the lean side it does bass extension in such convincing style that you can’t help thinking that its take on balance could actually be quite neutral. The Linear power supply brings it into contention with far pricier bridges/streamers and if you can afford to run it with Roon it not only sounds great but operates seamlessly as well. Definitely one for the shortlist almost regardless of budget.
