Up for sale is a Wyred 4 Sound DAC-2 DSD SE
DAC-2 DSD SE
Antracite / Black
The DAC-2 is in perfect condition, I could not find any blemishes.
The DAC-2 was tested and was working as it should and sounding real good.
The Display has a small issue. It shows all information as normal, but some pixels are more dim than the others, making the display look a little 'spotty'. See Pictures.

Audio Stream: "The Wyred 4 Sound DAC -2 DSDse is an extremely musical sounding DAC that does not superimpose a digital edge or glare to the sound. The DAC-2 DSDse does not sound thin or 2 dimensional. The Wyred 4 Sound had good body and weight that added a degree of realism to music reproduction not often found with DACs at this price. The excellent soundstaging with PCM files was a real plus; especially for those that enjoy live recordings or orchestral music. The DAC’s flawless function and performance was a joy to experience allowing me to concentrate on the music and not struggle with settings or other user rituals. In summary, I was impressed with the DAC-2 DSDse’s overall level of performance given its reasonable price and feature rich offerings."
