Expert review by: (



The gorgeous retro design is hard to resist, but the TEAC fails to deliver an engaging and musical performance at this price

Stunning retro design ; Impeccable build quality and compact size ; Nice, clean sound ; Decent detail and punch ; Supports high-res audio

Isn’t as detailed, dynamic or exciting as rivals ; Can get confused with complex rhythms

We have mixed feelings about the TEAC AI-501DA. On the one hand, we love the way it looks.
