Digital Audio Review (DAR) brings you the best products of 2017


Digital Audio Review is an independent site maintained by John Darko, a well-known personality in the small audio world. Why do we love him so much? Because in its tests, you will not find a sentence like “this product competes with devices costing 2 or 3 times its price” or like “listening to Diana Krall, I was amazed by”… No improbable vocabulary no more, nor items paid for by brands. That’s why we love Digital Audio Review! So inevitably, when the site delivers its long-awaited “Product of the Year” and “Favourite bits” awards, we are on the spot! Not all products are distributed in Europe, and some are very very expensive, but you can find some of them in our stores in Paris 11, Paris 17 or Boulogne. On to the rewards!
