This is our Eastern Electric MiniMax DAC Plus.
If you have been following the talk about op-amp upgrades done to the DAC ,I am offering this DAC with the upgraded op-amps OPA2604 duals with single OPA827's on the Cimarron Technology Brown Dog adaptors. I will install them in the DAC and also honor the warranty. This is a $100 up-gade and sonic wise sounds like five times that.This is a brand new in the box but I have to open it up to perform the component work.
It is the supreme upgrade version of the awarding winning Mini Max DAC. The MiniMax DAC Plus goes far beyond what made the original MiniMax DAC so special.
The core D/A chip of the MiniMax DAC Plus uses the world best sounding Sabre ESS Technology 9018 32 bit DAC chip. It zero jitter feature eliminates the discussion that digital has a long way to go before it can ever become the standard against analog playback. The USB input is Italian M2Tech OEM Asynchronization 24bit 192KHz. The MiniMax DAC Plus incorporates Eastern Electrics world class leading tube analog output stage; it reproduces the finest and silkiest sound from any high-resolution file. We consider this MiniMax DAC Plus to be the State Of The Art digital format by which others will be judge to in comparison. That we can bring it to you at an affordable price point is our gift to the audio community.
