The storage and networking performance is solid.

 

 

Audio RMAA 5.5:

 

I disable all audio features, set the correct bitrates, and then test the audio with a loopback test.

Sound Judgment by Ear: Very good, but we thought it sounded excellent. It is very possible the ESS Sabre DAC they are using is messing with the audio through some sort of sound effect we can't disable, but we are here to say the DAC is worth it. There are five ratings for audio: 1. Problems, 2. Okay, 3. Acceptable, 4. Very good, 5. Excellent
