ALO have long been known for their interconnects and amplifiers so it’s fair to expect that the v5 (as in version 5) of their Continental amplifier might just be pretty good.

My first exposure to Meridian came in the form of the very interesting Meridian Prime headphone amp and DAC. I loved the look and sound of the Prime, but could never justify the price and wasn’t sure if it was an amp with a DAC thrown in or a fully-fledged flagship all-in-one. What I loved about it most though was the MQA decoding it is capable of, so when I had the chance to grab a secondhand Explorer 2 DAC (the Prime’s much, much smaller brother) I had to take the opportunity to get some MQA goodness.
