“The Astin Trew [AT3500plus] worked well in all the systems I tried it in – the sound is balanced, very musical and is the very best you can expect in this price range…”

“Operated without upsampling, our Astin Trew was neutral, with perhaps a hint of warmth in the midrange that confers naturalness, while the bass is deep and authoritative; the high frequencies reveal every detail in a very pleasant way. In short, this player sounds like analogue and allows you to enjoy extended listening…”

“Musical details are numerous and very naturally presented. I would say that the naturalness, effortlessness and musicality are keystones to its sound – it is sure footed, does not strain in the slightest and is very transparent…”

“The fact is, if the AT3500plus was the reader’s CD player, even the analogue lovers amongst you may wish for a long life for the (CD) format. The AT3500plus proves that even a CD player for less than 2,000 Euros can offer you pleasant, relaxing, accurate and natural music. I do not think many audiophiles could wish for or want more at this reasonable price.”
