Selling my personal BDA-1, rating it 8/10 to follow audiogon guidelines, no cosmetic blemishes, operating perfectly, really 9/10 original box, and packing materials included. I am the original owner, purchased new from authorized dealer
Absolutely LEGENDARY DAC, Absolute Sound /Stereophile highly rated. Reference class sound quality. Unbelievable build quality ! Google for many professional reviews (Stereophile, Absolute Sound, etc.).
This is a terrific DAC and all music fed in the unit is upsampled 4 times. I have consistently used a CD transport to feed this (my Bryston BCD-1 CD player through a VLINK 192 via a coaxial input). You could feed the music in from a laptop.
Also available separately for purchase is a Musical Fidelity VLINK 192 and a Analysis Plus DigitalCoax (email me for specifics)
Buyer is responsible for shipping, I will ship Fedex/UPS insured.
