ASUS has priced the Essence One at Rs. 21,000 and the product is being sold locally with a warranty of one year.

At such a price point, I think a fair comparison would have to be the Audio GD FUN or maybe even the new NFB-5. But, as you can imagine, pitting it against the NFB-5 would look like a tall order due to the different topologies. Still, it would be interesting to see how it goes.

You've got me excited to try it against my Carat Ruby2.
It is better to remain silent and be taken as a fool, than to speak and prove your ignorance beyond doubt.
