California Audio Labs Alpha Perfect condition, barely used [Expired]


no longer for sale

UPDATE, Delta transport is sold. Due to many inquiries about splitting this great duo, well here you have them. Please see my other ad for the matching Delta. Hello, here you will find an absolute perfect California Audio Labs Alpha and Delta D/A converter and transport. If you are looking at these you know how good they sound. I have had $6,000.00 players, both Audio Research and Esoteric that were not anywhere as musical as this pair. I am the original owner and they look new, even the remote is perfect, even the buttons on the transport that always wear off are perfect. These should be rated 10/10 as they are exactly as they were new but I will conservatively rate them 9/10. I have all original double boxes, resistor set for the DAC and manuals. This is like finding a brand new pair. The transport is solid, it doesn's "clunk" like well worn Delta's do. They are the last of their kind. I have maybe 100 hours total usage since new. I am going fully digital in my new house and hope I don't regret this but my wife wants to purge everything before we move in. My price is very close to firm so please, no lowball offers, they get very tiring! Buyer responsible for Paypal, Audiogon 2% selling fees and actual shipping. Please let me know if you have any questions. Thank you UPDATE: Some have emailed asking if this is the 94/24 model, no, it is the original model. I found the 96/24 model to sound "thinner". I called CAL and they agreed and stated that market pressures forced them to add the additional upgrade board. If you want 96/24, you can still get the upgrade at Approved Audio. Their website is www.californiaaudiolabs.net. They were employees and designers at CAL and know the products inside out!
