Buy with confidence,long time audiogon user. 

This sale package comes with:

- Exogal Comet DAC unit (base Comet is $2995 MSRP) 
- the upgraded linear power supply that turns a stock Comet into a Comet Plus unit. ($600 MSRP if purchased separately, $500 MSRP if purchased at the same time as the Comet DAC, thereby purchasing a $3495.00 MSRP Comet Plus unit. Personally I think the difference in price is just that a Comet Plus doesn't come with the standard switching power supply when bought together at the same time, whereas purchasing a base unit would get the stock switcher and then adding the linear power supply later requires you pay full price) 
- the stock switching power supply + linear power supply upgrade             power supply.  always listen to the Comet with the upgraded power supply. So this switcher is basically brand new, unused and is a great backup to have) .
- a replacement run of WyWires power cable that you can use to re-wire the linear power supply unit's stock connector wire between power supply and DAC unit. This is brand new item ,never installed Anyways, the power cord upgrade is $300 MSRP. 
- new upgraded remote control for those that want to use the tactile old school method of control instead of the iOS or Android application to control the unit.

So as it sits here, essentially it is a $3895.00 MSRP package. It is for sale as a package.

REVIEW OF THE COMET DAC BY HI FI+ MAGAZINE, July 2015 
Review by Alan Sircom 
He says: "We keep banging on about the revolution that is taking place in home audio, and the Exogal Comet is that revolution’s agent provocateur. It isn’t the first device that replaces source component, converter, and preamp for a digital generation, but it is the first that makes that move so cogent and does so without any real compromise. If this is the shape of the future, it comes highly recommended." Read the whole review here.
