I really hate to part with this rare gem. but the times dictate so. I was told this particular unit was presented at the CES along with its integrated sister by Steve Davis (HiFi Farm). It's construction is absolutely beautiful with a thick, black anodized aluminum chassis. Although she's dated w/24/96 resolution & sampling, she still sounds gorgeous (especially in balanced mode), and much preferred to most upsampling units I've compared her to. If I were to describe the sound, I'd say "analog". She also makes a great transport. The smear on the rear panel is only a reflection from the chrome ring on the power cord, and I'm rating her conservatively as 7/10. I do not have the remote - as it was included with the integrated, but any universal should work (I can provide the code). I will cover PayPal - if used.
