1021

Network Disc Player

When the 1021 debuted it was the conclusion of one of the largest undertakings in Boulder’s history: It is the first complete source component from the company. Development lasted for two years and the result completely changes the limits of what a disc player can be, especially since it does not need a disc to make music. Since then it has earned over-the-top praise by owners, dealers, reviewers and other manufacturers from around the world and has justly become the standard by which streaming disc players are measured.
