â€œYou little beautyâ€ â€“ this pert package from Southend has really thrown the proverbial cat in with the pigeons.
Forget the specifications, even though they are mightily impressive for a box this size (50 watts, remote, excellent MM input) itâ€™s the sound that counts.
Weâ€™re talking music, music, music. Tight, punchy and natural the Brio-R works a treat with either the RP3, Apollo or DAC and a pair of RS3â€™s.
Throw in some lovely Chord Co. cables and youâ€™ve got musical heaven for less than Â£2k.
