This is one amazing DAC. As close to real music as any DAC that I've heard. That's about all I can say. Seriously. It is true that it is from a small company, but it is an amazing piece of gear.
This one is not the full signature model, which retails for $2500, but it is halfway between the regular model ($1500) and the signature, so probably worth about $2000. Uses modified Analog Devices AD1865N-K monolithic R-2R digital to analog converter. It has upgraded dual power transformers, upgraded Jensen OIMP output caps, upgraded silver-plated RCA jacks, Furutech input jack, Vishay diodes, Sanyo Oscon SEPC low-ESR capacitors, etc., so the parts quality is almost as good as it gets.
This is barely used at all. I've had it about 3 months so its just broken in! I had Ben's last DAC and this is truly an order of magnitude greater. Beats anything I've heard including Tranquility, Bel Canto, MHDT and Benchmark.
Non USB. Has one coax input and two RCA output jacks. Simple but great.
Original packaging included. Perfect condition. Free shipping.
