EXOGAL In The News 

REVIEW OF THE COMET FROM AUDIO-ACTIVITY.COM, ITALY, December 2016
By Angelo Jasparro
He says "The quality of the sound of a DAC, as you know, depends not only on the digital/analog decoding technology, which in this Comet is proprietary, but also on the output stages, power supply, etc. The sound of the Comet Plus reminds me, somehow, that of the old and celebrated Wadia, at a price that is not as high as luxury high end, but more affordable good quality audio equipment; it's an important thing in a market that seems to become really crazy."

REVIEW OF THE COMET / ION COMBO FROM DAGOGO.COM, US, October 2016
By Doug Schroeder
Among other things, he says "The practical outcome of all this is with the advent of the Exogal Comet and Ion in terms of design and performance, your DAC and your amp have slipped decidedly toward becoming obsolete. Exogal has just killed their performance in a targeted strike." We agree. Read it all here.

REVIEW OF THE COMET ON DAGOGO.COM, October 2015
Review by Doug Schroeder
He says: "The Comet is my favorite DAC in the under $4K space, and should be heard by anyone seeking a no-compromise digital experience. Especially for those with lesser digital file playback systems, this DAC can save your system, and revolutionize your listening experience. It is the only digital treatment to best the reigning 32 bit high frequency scheme."

REVIEW OF THE COMET DAC BY HI FI+ MAGAZINE, July 2015
Review by Alan Sircom
He says: "We keep banging on about the revolution that is taking place in home audio, and the Exogal Comet is that revolution’s agent provocateur. It isn’t the first device that replaces source component, converter, and preamp for a digital generation, but it is the first that makes that move so cogent and does so without any real compromise. If this is the shape of the future, it comes highly recommended."
