Aune’s dressed the B1 in bold, 1979 Disney. The X7s looks and feels 2000s. It is solid, generally easy to use, and unified to a modern home aesthetic. I’ll be looking at it in greater detail this week, complete with measurements, hiss commentary, and more. For the moment, I hope you’ll be content with a few, general comments.
As part of the X series, it stacks with the X5s player, and the X1S DSD DAC, and looks pretty in the process. Interface-wise, I’m a bit disappointed that its input is limited to single-ended RCAs, which have become an increasingly rare commodity in my household, and one that breaks down faster than XLRs.
The X7s looks good on a desk and in a HiFi rig. In a few days, we’ll see how it performs.
