The 2.5 is an amazing DAC. As you can see in the pix, you can hook up pretty much anything. USB, optical, Coax (digital) even ANALOG - YES, analog. Stereophile gave the 2.5 a terrific review. Simple search and you'll find it. The Bel Canto does a geat job of presentation. For me it took away any sort of harshness or graininess to the sound. Detailed presentation that's non-fatiguing. You'll see what I mean.
I used it as a preamp as well as a DAC and ran my phono stage through it! How many DACs can you do that with?
I'm selling because I'm moving past my Class "D"/digital experiment and getting back to tubes so this is no longer necessary in my setup. The pix show a smudge on the top of the faceplate - not sure how that got there but I didn't even notice it until I took it out of the system. So I'll rate it an 8, even though it's less than a year old. I'm the original owner. Comes with everything, box, manual, remote.
While I'm happy to entertain "rational" offers, please don't insult me with the usual ridiculous low-ball offers. You won't get a response from me.
