PRICE LOWERED!!! I bought this incredible NOS dac a few years back. Loved it so much I bought a second one. I recently sold my other Constantine + as I dismantled my 2nd audio room. It has always been used in a smoke free, pet free home. It is in excellent overall condition and superb operating condition. I don't see any scratches on this unit at all...which is very difficult since these units were made with acryllic. I have used all three inputs, usb, coax and toslink and all work beautifully. This dac has a very smooth and natural presentation. For those who are in to computer audio the usb input is absolutely amazing! I had an apple tv hooked up via toslink and also hooked it up via usb directly to my computer. They both sounded amazing! I hate selling this unit but I am getting a great deal on a Bel Canto 1.5 dac. Really a 9/10 but have it rated an "8" just to be safe.
