“The Berkeley Audio Design Alpha DAC Reference Series 3 takes the flag for the best DAC I’ve had the
pleasure of reviewing… To the truest encapsulation of the word ‘Reference’, when it comes to the

Comments by experienced third party industry listeners after hearing the Reference Series 3
"It's like a transparent window on the microphone feed because the DAC is so transparent.
The resolution of the ambient halo of air around instrumental outlines is astonishing.
Even Red Book has bloom and dimensionality."
"I sat down to evaluate the DAC. Two hours later I realized I had forgotten the task at hand and
was completely lost in the music, captivated by the artistry of the performances.
I can give no higher compliment."
