For sale is a Light Harmonic DaVinci Dual DAC. This particular unit was upgraded by the manufacturer to the Dual-DAC specs. Included are the original pelican carry case, remote, and a manual.
I've very conservatively rated this piece as 6/10 condition; I'd rather be overly-critical of it. There are a few marks, scratches, and rub marks I've done my best to capture in the photos. Pricing for this unit at a huge discount over the original price accommodates the imperfections, so candidly, I'm not willing to consider lowball offers. I have already lowballed myself on your behalf. Please look at the photos carefully. A prospective owner willing to overlook cosmetic imperfections will be rewarded with stellar sound at a stellar price.
New DaVinci dual-DAC internals add to the original DaVinci even
greater processing power for high resolution digital music files – all the
way up to 32 bit/384kHz PCM and DSD 128. The “Dual-DAC” nomenclature describes
the unique decoding process within. One section optimizes for PCM output, and
a separate engine enables the best sound from DSD files. DaVinci reads the incoming
file and routes it automatically through the appropriate circuitry for the best
Normally, there is a pulsing light around the edge of the DAC which flashes on and off. I found it distracting, and had LH disconnect it during the upgrade process.
The DAC is currently located at Echo Audio (EchoHiFi.com), my local audio store in Portland, OR. The DAC will ship from their store. Since I do not have much Audiogon feedback, they can vouch for both the condition of the DAC, and for me as a seller.
Please Google for reviews of the unit. They can best describe the incredible sound, and functionality with greater specificity.
The DAC weighs about 60 lbs -- yes, built like a tank. Add about 10 lbs for the pelican case. Buyer pays for insured shipping. I'm willing to give the buyer three days to listen to it and ensure they are satisfied. However, the buyer is responsible to cover the cost of insured return shipping if he/she decides to return it. But I seriously doubt the buyer will want to return it once he/she hears how good it is!
Because of shipping cost, process, and fragile nature of electronics I'm willing to sell to buyers in the United States only. It will be shipped by FedEx ground, insured for the sale amount. Insurance adds around $250 to the buyer's shipping rate.
If you live near Portland, OR, free local pickup is certainly an option too.
Thanks for looking. Cheers
