R-15PM DAC specs + Subwoofer in Technical/Modifications Posted March 12, 2017 Thank you! According to Crutchfield the DAC is indeed 24bit/96kHz on usb as well as optical. Sadly I can't make use of the sub deal on crutchfield, as I live in Germany. Do you have any experience with the R-15PM's integrated preamp? Is it comparable to those in entry/mid-level turntables? Also the general consensus seems to be that they sound slightly clearer, but otherwise simmilar to Audioengines A5+. Can you confirm that? Are the R-15PM suitable for near-field listening?
