Cocktail Hour
If you’re looking for an integrated amp, network player, music server, and DAC all in one box the Cocktail Audio X30 delivers a goodly amount of what you’d expect from such a device. While I’ve heard better sonic performance from more costly separates and less well endowed players in terms of features, the X30 errs on the side of what I consider to be an easy to listen to sound.
