This listing is for an Entec [not ENTECH – no “H”]
I’m selling this DAC for a friend; it belonged to her uncle who recently passed away. Because of that I don’t know exactly how old the unit is. I did put it into a system to confirm that it work perfectly - it does – and that there are no issue with it. Additionally, it is in very good condition, there are no scratches or blemishes on the faceplate and the casework is in very good shape; my conservative rating is simply to reflect its age. If you haven’t seen one of these, it is built like a tank.
Additionally, I have the Data Pump that was designed to go with the unit (though the previous owner didn’t use the pump so I can’t be positive I have all the parts; I believe I do) and if you are interested, I also have a G&D Transforms UTP-1 – Ultimate Series Transport that was designed by Bob Crump and voiced with the Number Cruncher Model 1.1 in his effort to achieve analogue sound from a digital source [if you’re interested in the UTP-1 let me know and we can discuss a package deal - I have pictures if you like – I do not need or expect much for the UTP-1]
The Entec Number Cruncher was designed by Demian Martin and built by Jerry Crosby, and I believe (strongly, though I can’t confirm) that this unit has the common upgrades/modifications by Bob Crump – it has the TG tag on the back and I know from the owners notes that he corresponded with Bob, additionally, he had/has many other TG Audio components (e.g. power cords and interconnects to be listed).
Buyer pays all shipping and PayPal fees.
As there have been questions about the UTP-1 I have added photos of it. Pictures of the Number Cruncher should always have been here (apologies), part of the 'working out the bugs' process of the new Audiogon.
