DCS Puccini and U-clock: Your entryway to high end digital audio.

***Yet another buyer in Asia, asking me to ship to California, backed out of the purchase, so here we go again.  I've adjusted the price to be more in line with the bids I'm receiving, and answering the most frequent questions below for everyone's benefit.
Please: I've been an AG member for a decade and this is a great deal.  If you have the funds and want the units purchase them.  If you don't please don't waste my time.
(1) Puccini was originally 230V and converted by dCS factory. (2) Last service was 2016 where Puccini received the updated software (v1.12) and had the transverse rotational motor replace by dCS's authorized technician in Massachusetts.  The unit has worked flawlessly since (3) U-Clock was purchased in 2016 and also inspected by the same technician.  His assessment was the following:   "The component is in like-new condition, and connected to a system, performs flawlessly." (4) As I traveled extensively before Covid, and left NYC during Covid, both units are lightly used.  Cheers.


I am selling my prized and pristine dCS Puccini Player and U-Clock, arguably one of the best digital audio/CD/SACD playback systems that money can buy.  I have owned these units for ~10 years, they have been serviced professionally by DCS, and both units work flawlessly.
Originally sold new for $23,000 ($18,000 for the CD player, and $5,000 for the word clock), this equipment will take your home listening experience to an entirely different level.  In its review, The Absolute Sound wrote:  "the dCS Puccini CD/SACD player and U-Clock combination has turned out to be one of the world's great digital front ends." (full review below)
The dCS Puccini upsamples standard ("redbook") CDs to high definition audio providing unprecedented clarity and musicality.  The U-Clock has a USB input enabling you to connect your computer or any other digital source directly to the Puccini, providing a complete gateway for digital audio.  There is simply no comparison between this player and any other DACs priced under $20,000 today.
Included in the sale are: (1) both units; (2) connecting cable; (3) remote control; (4) two power cords; (5) original packaging and (6) original manuals, everything you need, all in perfect condition.  Both devices will be professionally packed and shipped to you.
I am upgrading to a $40,000 unit and that is the only reason for the sale.  The items are listed locally and I reserve the right to cancel the auction at any time.  See my perfect feedback and purchase with confidence.
