Questions for the seller
What user interface do you use?
I use an ipad interface to use it.
Hi, Also have AVA RS3 Music server, it has usb and Ethernet connections, can I connect it to your dsx? Thanks
Yes you can , the DSX 1000 is to be connected to the internet through the ethernet connection and will read any storage that is in the network.
Hi, Can oppo 105 use dsx DAC to improve sound performance?
Yes, I used it with a T+a MP3000 and improved the sound . Just connect it to the digital input .
(Sorry sent undone) anyway, the RS3 only has USB connections in the back,do you know if I can connect it to the DSX 1000? Or can I connect your dsx 1000 directly to my preamp? Thanks
Hi the DSX1000 can be connected to the preamp or you can connect it direct to the amplifier . The unit have 2 outputs 1 has volume control. The back has cat 5 connection that will give you lossless connection and bnc connection to connect to a cd transport. Thank you
Hi, How old is this unit? I have Accuphase VX 700 preamp, Integra Research power amps and Oppo BDP 105 cd/Blu-ray player. I also have AVA RS3 music server haven't used)
I think we spoke last week , it cannot be used as a preamp but it can be connected direct to an amplifier and has a volume control. The unit can be plugged in to a cd player and will upsample the player to a much better sound. Yes, I had naim before and is way much better than naim. This is a reference player and yes is better than some today streamers of higher price. I do not take trade in as the selling price is 1/3 from the retail price and have no room.The only reason I am selling it is because my audio equipment is boxed in because I don’t have the room anymore.
