PrismSound Dream DA-2 Legendary DAC, RARE! [Expired]

no longer for sale

For sale Prismsound Dream DA-2 in very good condition. (some scratches and discolor on the edge due to previous working on the rack, but those are not obvious. carefully operated in a kid/smoke/pet free room afterward, rated 6/10 mainly due to those reasons, but it's a functional machine right?) NOTICE to the international buyers, this machine is 110V version. I have never heard such good sound quality out of any DACs below a price range of 15000 usd. No issues since day one. fully functional! This is a masterpiece of work, no more than 500 were produced over the last 20 years. RARE to see on the market. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- The Dream DA-2 is the definitive music D/A converter, providing the most accurate rendition of an audio event whether it be early music, classical, jazz, big band, a club mix or hard rock. The DA-2 conversion system provides an audio stream of such exceptional quality that will be relied upon for years to come as the definitive source for productions on CD, DVD, Super Audio CD or other formats as they become available. Performance The Prism Sound DA-2, 96kHz, 24-bit D/A converter provides ultimate-quality monitoring of digital audio signals. Its exceptional linearity and rock-steady clock generation and recovery ensure the highest conversion precision available for recording and mastering applications. The DA-2 combines truly state-of-the-art audio performance with the advanced features needed by the professional to provide the most revealing, most transparent and most flexible digital to analogue conversion unit available. Musicality Of particular importance is the ability of the DA-2 to avoid the unpleasant effects of jitter: The exceptionally stable PLL has high jitter-attenuation, and the DA-2's digital outputs can provide a de-jittered digital feed-through for reliable digital transfers. The DA-2 also has a unique 'master clock' mode in which the effects of incoming clock jitter are eliminated completely. The DA-2 will interface easily with other digital audio equipment; it features both high-speed and two-wire interfacing options at input and output for 88.2kHz and 96kHz rates. The DA-2 analogue output offers simplicity and high performance with its fully-floating, electronically balanced format with precision attenuators offering an operating range that covers both professional and consumer voltage levels. Compatible with all wordlengths from 16 to 24 bits The DA-2 is fully compatible with recordings made at any wordlength up to 24-bits, with or without noise shaping. No adjustment is needed for sources driving only 16 bits on the interface. Monitor the new high-rate (e.g. 96kHz) digital interface formats The DA-2 provides support for both two-wire and double-speed AES variants now in use for higher-rate recording projects (typically 96kHz 24-bit). Use the DA-2 as the basis of a studio monitoring system The 7-way input selector and feed-through output (for example: driving a digital PPM) of the DA-2 can be used as the heart of your digital audio monitoring system. Easy transfer between tape and disk The DA-2 can act as a format converter and jitter attenuator using its array of input formats and its digital outputs. For example, it can convert between AES3 and SDIF-2 or from TOSLINK optical to AES3. It can also convert from double speed AES (typically 96kHz) to the two-wire interface format. Use the DA-2 as your studio clock reference The DA-2 can operate in Master Clock mode where the D/A converter timing is generated internally from a precision reference, by-passing the synchronizing PLL system altogether. If your external equipment supports it, you can use the DA-2 in this mode for the ultimate in D/A conversion quality. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- It doesn't come with the anti-vibration cones.(those shown on the picture is not included) I accept Paypal ONLY, and require instant payment after buy off. I can ship to international locations, but all fees are on buyer's responsibility. (include shipping fees, custom surcharges, etc.) And I won't declare it as a return product or any other kind of stuff for shipping purpose. I have 100% positive feedback in here, ebay (under name of "xanadux") , and head-fi ("xanadux") Buy with confidence! Any questions, please shoot me a message. I can provide more pictures about the scratches upon request. Happy listening guys.
