If you're here, you know what this is. What many say is the finest
sounding DAC ever designed (including the late Harry Pearson of The
Absolute Sound), the Manley Gold Reference DAC employs rare ULTRA-ANALOG
hand-built fully-discrete dual mono DAC hybrids along with a Pacific
Microsonics HDCD decoder / processor and filter unit. The DAC section is
coupled with special topology dual-mono vacuum tube analogue line
amplifiers: a fully differential input circuitry driving Manley's
top-line high current totem pole output stage. Both single-ended
capacitor coupled unbalanced outputs and balanced transformer coupled
outputs are provided.
This unit is in mint condition, purchased
new directly from Manley. Not a scratch on it, perfect in every way.
Used only in our non-smoking 5.1 mastering studio. Just characterized on an Audio Precision 2722 using the Stereophile test
suite. Everything is objectively perfect. Test results will be provided
at no charge to the buyer. Just dropped price from $5,000 to $2,995 for quick sale.
