A very rare and top quality dac. STAX produced low volume specialized amplifiers, speakers and dac's which were amongst the World's best. At the time this dac was designed selected components were used and the chips were of a higher quality than those used today. This dac was used by some recording studios in disc production. The sound is analog and non fatiguing, with a bolted together panel construction, not bent metal. A rare and unique offering from the "golden era" of audio equipment.
A few cosmetic blemishes but nothing that detracts and 100% working as expected.
