MHDT Labs Pagoda [Expired]


no longer for sale

The MHDT Labs Pagoda is a non oversampling, no digital filter, no op-amp, no structured feedback DAC.  This tends to produce the most realistic and natural sound.  From an online review "Its sonic performance revolves around beautiful timbres, excellent transparency allowing easily discernable micro and macro details. Its overall powerful overall dynamics and fabulous high-end "shimmer," where you hear the details and decays without harshness".  

This is a wonderful DAC, is beautiful to look at, is in mint condition and priced to sell.  I will include two additional tubes for tube rolling fun and 3 Vibrapod Isolation Cones and Matching Isolation Footers (a $200 value) for free.  The effect of these are a subtle but real increase in transparency and soundstage (in my system to my ears).
