Hegel HD-30 DAC/Preamplifier 230v black colour, as new in box.
This was supplied to me as part of an insurance claim a couple of months ago, however while the claim was in the process of being settled I bought another DAC and so this is surplus to requirements.

Lots of great reviews - here's one from Reviewers Choice; The HD30’s big selling point is its sound -- and what a sound it is: Its world-class resolution, extreme clarity, and superb refinement let you listen very deeply into recordings, to hear precisely what the musicians and engineers laid down there. And it does so while adding no ill artifacts -- the HD30 sounded incredibly clean in my system, never bright, edgy, or off-putting. I was also astounded that the HD30 not only unveiled more detail than did my Simaudio Moon Evolution 650D DAC-transport, and presented even larger soundstages, but did so with a livelier, more spirited sound that helped make it even more exciting to listen to. To my ears, the HD30 is one of the best-sounding DACs you can buy today.
