This baby was bought for an office system that never happened. The unit was powered up and two songs were played before it went back in the box. The box has been collecting dust and I think it is time to sell since the office system will not materialized. As for the sound ,it is suprizingly extended with plenty of bass,treble and completely musical. The upsampler goes to 24/348 Khz and covers the whole gamut.The gain stage will give you 50 watts on tap and it also is as green as it comes. Standby consumption is very very little .It will put a smile on your face if you use it in an office,bedroom or even familyroom. Surprising set of balls on this thing.I am including a 3 meter Tributaries digital cable worth $180 for free in there.If you dont want the cable let me know.It wont affect the price.Please send all e mails to firstname.lastname@example.org since I do not get any e mail notifications from Audiogon since their new format started. I have e mailed them several times and no luck.The unit is a perfect match with a Wadia 171 or 170 ITransport in size .Please be advised that I will pay shipping cost in US only. Please add 3% Paypal fees. Use my personal e mail for communications email@example.com . If you make an offer and do not hear from me is because I did not get any notification so you are better off sending me an e mail regarding your offer or if you have any questions.Cheers and happy listening . Oh by the way ,I have been a member for 17 years with satisfactory rating so when I say new ,it means new.
