Sony PHA-3AC review


The Sony PHA-3AC is a good product, and is worth an audition, but isn't the class leader we hoped for

Precise, articulate presentation Good level of insight File compatibility iPhone and Xperia compatibility Compact size

Doesn’t offer the true portability battery operation should Lacks the quality feel expected at this price Class leaders offer more transparency and spaciousness

The PHA-3AC is a fine performer. It has a pleasing blend of strengths, which make listening to all types of music a pleasure. If you’re in the market give this one a listen.
