Selling LampizatOr DAC, Level A+4, Generation 5.
The DAC is in perfect condition, works 100%. Manufactured in Mar 2015. Non-oversampling, no DSD.
One of the best sounding DAC in around $2500 (used).
I tried some MHDT, Border Patrol, ANK, Audio Note 3.1x, PS Audio, Moon, Hegel, Pontus 2 and others, this one beats them all. Now I decided to try a DAC with DSD. I am sure it will be another Lampi, probably Big7 or even next in chain.
This DAC sounds unbelievable - enormous sound stage, 3D, a lot of details, great bass, smooth analog presentation (check superb reviews).
When I contacted the designer in Poland, Lukasz Fikus, he suggested to replace original Jupiter Red Astron capacitors for Jupiter copper caps (old caps are pictured). That upgrade was worth of spending $400 (professionally installed by local high end audio technician). There was also done an adjustment to the top metal chassis (9 holes drilled to improve ventilation, release the heat from 3 tubes inside, some vibration dampening sheets applied and a little notch in the chassis). If you use tall rectifier tube, the notch is needed to slide the chassis back to place.
Inside are 3 tubes: original Russian rectifier 6X5, 12HB7A tube and one more, I forgot the number.
All tubes are testing strong, sounding great.
I will include one extra 6X5 rectifier, very good sounding RCA USA 6X5GT. Otherwise this Lampi is a tube rollers' dream. You can try a LOT of other tubes to tune this marvel to your likings.
No power cord, no manual is included (like from the factory).
Manual is available online.
Buyer pays with his/her preferred payment or Paypal Friends/Family.
Flat shipping $85 with Canada Post, tracking # provided, (lower mainland states).
