Berkeley Audio Reference Series DAC in absolutely perfect / flawless condition. I purchased the DAC brand new from my Berkeley dealer and it never left my audio rack. Not a single mark, scratch, nic, ding - it could easily pass as brand new.
I have owned many DAC’s over the last 4 years and this unit was by far, the best I have ever heard or owned. It is also one of the very few pieces I have ever bought that has not had a single issue or hiccup. This DAC has worked 100% perfectly from day one. Included are all items that came with the unit as brand new, owners manual, remote control, power cord and of course the original box.
Also - many people have stated this DAC works best when run in combination with the Berkeley Alpha USB converter. I also found this to be true, EXCEPT, when using an Aurender N10 music server. I got the absolute best results when running the AES out of the Aurender N10 directly into the Berkeley DAC. I also used an MIT Oracle MA-X AES cable, which is absolutely an incredible cable (and can be purchased brand new for much much less than it’s msrp....).
Thanks you for looking at my ad.
