1021

Network Disc Player

When the 1021 debuted it was the conclusion of one of the largest undertakings in Boulder’s history. It was also the first complete source component from the company. Development lasted for two years and the result completely changed the limits of what a digital player could be. Since then it has earned over-the-top praise by owners, dealers, reviewers and other manufacturers from around the world.
