Alluxity & Joseph Audio

The Alluxity Media One (£8900 in black or white), which I reported on from Munich in 2015, is being covered again for two reasons; the photo of the custom orange finish is orangicious and Alluxity made the wise move of pairing up with Joseph Audio.

The Media One comes with 2TB of internal storage, can talk to your NAS, passes PCM resolutions up to 32-bit/384kHz and DSD to DSD256, and the company offers an optional internal DAC.

Jeff Joseph was running the tunes for my visit, another wise move, and I got a tasty taste of tape, always a wise move, and a few tracks from the newly re-jigged Sgt. Peppers. While I would not call myself a Big Beetles Fan (duck & cover!), my brain was delighted with the newfound richness of this very familiar music. Sometimes a remaster reveals more of the music, i.e. how it touches us, and this 50th Anniversary Edition sounds like one such case.
