The German magazine, Hifi & Records has had the opportunity to test the RUBICON 8 and their verdict of it is:
“What can not be described with words, music takes often in an impressive manner. Will not be played live, but used a sound storage medium, it depends on the quality of the music system in order to achieve this goal. Plays a sound converter that emotional as the RUBICON 8 in our listening room without exception did, then there is indeed such a thing as commercially available luck that works at your fingertips.”
The full review is available (in German) in the August 2015 edition.
