Beautiful Alpha Reference w\ MQA for sale. Owned by a fanatic, (me) in a pet free, smoke free home. The purchaser of this gorgeous DAC will get more than 95% of the sound of the newest Berkeley Alpha Reference Dac for less than 1/3 of the $22,000.00 price! (Of course all Berkeley Audio Alpha Reference Dacs can be updated to the newest model if desired.)
This Berkeley Reference DAC has been manually hand-tuned
by Michael "Pflash" Pflaumer and Michael Ritter. This is the DAC that Robert Harley rates # 1 in the world. -You can not buy sound in this league for less than multiples of this price.
The Alpha Reference is a 30 lb masterpiece. It is also a revelation. You will hear (and feel) the incredible quality of sound immediately on the first track, and it will put a smile on your face. Your ears and mind can relax for a change - It is super high definition but also calming and relaxing at the same time. It is a bit difficult to describe, but absolutely stunning to experience.
$6750. USA only sale. Buyer to pay Fedex Ground shipping. (I will get you the exact price)
I used a few web pics because the Berkeley is all packed up. Please check my extensive Audiogon feedback and the quality of my items, and buy with confidence. Thank you for looking at my ad.
"Berkeley's Alpha DAC Reference redefines what we can expect from digital playback. The Reference is simply stunning in its ability to render instruments as real-sounding objects in three-dimensional space. This startling -and I mean startling- quality is made possible not just by the Reference's spatial precision, but also by the timbral vividness and extraordinarily high resolution of the tiniest micro-details. What's more, the Reference performs this magic trick on all instruments simultaneously, even in the most dense and complex passages. This unprecedented (for digital) quality allowed me to easily follow individual musical lines in a way I never thought possible from digital. The build-quality includes a chassis milled from a solid aluminum block. The Alpha DAC Reference is an unqualified triumph."
