Cary Audio DAC-1000. Has USB, two coax inputs, two optical inputs. Handles digital music files up to 192 k rate.
I am the original owner, purchased June 2015. Selling due to upgrading to a DAC that does DSD.
The item is in perfect functional condition. Cosmetically, there is a 1/4" scratch on the face place caused by the end of a cable. This scratch is not visible at distances greater than 2 feet. On the upper right rear edge of the face plate there are two nicks (it came from the factory like this).
The inside of the case top was treated with Dynamat Xtreme for vibration damping. This material easily peels off and I will be happy to remove it if the purchaser desires it.
Description from Cary website:
The Cary Audio DAC-100 is made in the USA and designed to provide high-quality
music reproduction from today’s digital sources. The heart of the DAC-100 is
two high current custom built toroidal transformers, one each for the digital and
analog sections of the unit. The separate analog transformer has a Faraday
shield to reduce noise, and the audio circuits are designed to drive a wide
variety of impedances to better match other associated equipment.
The audio output section, responsible for providing the actual musical signals, is
based on proven Cary Audio designs for the best sound quality. The DAC-100
audio output uses high speed monolith buffers operated with non-global feedback
to ensure optimum sound quality. The audio section is fed with its own discreet
low noise power supply. The digital bitstream is handled by a new front end
designed in conjunction with one of the industry’s acknowledged digital
leaders. A Wolfson WM8805 chipset is used as the input receiver for the four
(4) (2-coaxial and 2-Toslink) SPDIF digital audio inputs, as chosen by many of
the finest DACs in the world. The USB input uses XMOS processing for
asynchronous processing of USB computer based music, stripping away the computer’s
timing and replacing it with a much more accurate master clock for a more
stable bitstream. It is able to handle multiple 24 bit/192kHz channels with
extremely low latency, all at 500 MIPS.
