CEntrance DACmini CX 
Audiophile D/A Converter and Premium Headphone Amp

This unit has the the "variable RCA output" modification meaning that the volume knob will control not only the headphone jack but also the RCA output connections.

This unit retailed for $800 plus $100 for the output modification. So new this unit was $900.

See pics for condition. Minor scratch as pictured.

Check out the Stereophile review and has been on their CLASS A RECOMMENDED until 2014.

This is one of the most highly regarded DACs on the market today. Stereophile featured this DAC on the cover of their December 2011 issue.

Stereophile wrote, "The CEntrance DACmini is a solid-state D/A processor, line preamplifier, and headphone amp with an external power supply. Its slim front panel holds an input selector, volume control, and 1/4" headphone jack. The DACmini's AKM 4396 DAC chip accepts signals with word lengths up to 24 bits and sample rates up to 96KHz via USB. ... The DACmini offered a big bold sound that was forgiving of poorly recorded material. Compared to CEntrance's own DACport, the DACmini offered better low-bass control and greater treble extension."

They reviewed the Centrance DACport in the June, 2010 issue, which shares USB technology with DACmini and dubbed it "Amazing", further calling DACport a "Highly Recommmended Buy".
