This is one of the best DACs for red book in existence. Due to a system change, I am not able to keep this DAC.
I have not heard a better sounding DAC for red book than this Museatex. For those that do not know, it was designed by Ed Meitner and significantly upgraded by John Wright. The fully modified BiDat, is very sensitive to power cords, and will reward with even greater sound and enjoyment once the stock cord is replaced. Highly recommend a Moray James power cord, as that power cable and SPDIF cable combined take the BiDat to an even higher level.
Although I do not have the original Meitner box, I do have a proper double-box, where the DAC is well packed. It was recently upgraded in Sept 2010 from John Wright in Calgary Alberta. Everything functions as new, all blue LEDs were replaced with new ones in 2010.
Although I am looking to get $1800 out of this DAC, interesting trades are also welcome:
- A PS Audio P10 power plant, plus any difference (that I would need to pay)
- A good Record Cleaning Machine from either VPI or Nitty-Gritty
* Paypal users must be responsible for 3.5% charge
* Shipping paid by buyer.
It has all of John Wright's updates, including power supply, clock recovery, and output stage.
Latest updates were done in Sept of 2010.
All Black-gate caps in the power supply.
The entire DAC was completely cryo treated in 2004!
Interested buyers, please feel free to send me an email (louawalters at gmail dot com) I can provide my phone number to discuss additional details on this DAC.
