AS NEW, Used less than 40 hours, Full Warranty.

When purchasing my new Technics 1200GAE at the Rocky Mountain Audio Fest (RMAF) this year, I had the opportunity to pick up Technics NEW Reference Series SU-R1 DAC/NAC.  

I downloaded some HDTracks and was impressed to say the least.  I have also found this to make a great Headphone source, and have been using it for after-hours listening.  

In retrospect, as an "Analog Guy", I have no interest in building/buying a Digital Audio collection.  I am happy with Vinyl and my Reel-to-Reel's.  That said, it must go to someone who can appreciate it. (I will put the money toward Stylus's and reel's :-) )

Note: There are only two ways to purchase one of these:


  1. By purchasing the new Technics R1 Reference "System" (Sold as a set) for $53,000


  2. This classified; or another "Analog guy" breaking up the "System"



Here are some quotes by Absolute Sound, Alan Taffel - http://www.theabsolutesound.com/articles/technics-r1-reference-system/

-"The SU-R1 is a streamer as well as an unusually comprehensive DAC. Streams of hi-res PCM or DSD files can emanate from either a LAN-connected NAS or a directly connected USB drive. Once connected to your network, the SU-R1 can also stream wirelessly via DLNA and Apple AirPlay. Additional USB inputs provide support for PCs, Macs, and thumb drives. Inbound SPDIF can be of the coax, AES/EBU or TosLink variety. The SU-R1 even sports two sets of analog—yes, analog—inputs. How often do you see that on a digital network player?"

-"Inside the SU-R1 lies a share of the tech that Technics has lavished on the entire series. The clock is battery-powered, which shields this critically sensitive element from AC line noise. (Why doesn’t everyone do this?) Further, because the degree and nature of jitter differs by input, Technics built a specific jitter-reduction circuit for each source. The USB module is graced with an expensive ruby mica capacitor. Plus, there’s a Direct mode that bypasses everything but the bare minimum circuitry. It works; engaging this mode results in an immediate and distinct uptick in transparency."

-[The R1 Components Independently] "The SU-R1 streamer/DAC sounds remarkably similar to the CH Precision C1 (about $40k). Both offer deep resolution, great timbral detail, and snappy rhythms. Also like the C1, but unlike several other units I’ve reviewed recently, the Technics fares very well in streaming mode."

THIS THING IS A TANK @ 38 lbs.  It is large enough and stable enough to place a Technics 1200 Turnatable on top of.  Think about that...  Bonus: Isolation platform. :-)

Bonus 2:  Manual is signed by Michiko Ogawa


Optionally:  Unit is available in Denver, CO for Pick-up if you are local.

Still under manufacturer  warranty and is "as new" (I have not registered it - you will be the first registration). I confined this with the Authorized Dealer.

Phone call's welcome to discuss.

NOTE:  Turntable in photo's NOT included.  This classified is only for the Technics SU-R1
