Selling my Yulong DA-8 DAC/HP amp/Digital preamp, it uses the 32 bit Sabre ESS9018 DAC, and will handle up to 384khz and dsd files. Operates fully balanced and offers balanced and RCA inputs and outputs.
This unit outperformed my modded Eastern Electric minimax plus DAC (also a Sabre dac), and offers a good headphone amp and high quality digital preamp capabilities to boot. Sonically it at least matched my NAD M51, both as DAC and preamp. Very natural and un-digital sounding, but also detailed, open and dynamic. The DAC and preamp sound is very hard to fault compared to anything anywhere near the price. I don’t use headphones much, so I can’t say too much about that, other than in sounds very good and drives planars well.
The unit is in great condition. It is a couple of years old and was used perhaps 20 hours a week in my office.
Detailed review and comparisons here. I found both the reviews to be spot on:
I’ll ship to the cont. US at my price, and cover paypal. Check my feedback. This is a fine sounding, well made piece.
Thanks for having a look.
