Like new around 200 hours. One of the reviews: My existing system is MacMini, Weiss DAC 202, Oyade Firewire, Nordost Valhalla interconnects, Audio Research Ref 5, Krell Evo 403, Nordost Valhalla speaker cable, Wilson Watt Puppy 8, Quantum QX4 power, Valhalla power cables. The existing system for me is a great sounding system. It had beautiful staging, 3D and very accurate. The combination of the Audio Research and the Krell 403 worked beautifully and provided the finesse of tubes with the punch of solid state. Very hard to fault. The shock was that the Wadia Intuition did ALL of this plus it delivered an even more convincing sound stage and smooth as silk volcals. 95% of the time the existing combination was perfect, but with some vocalists it was a bit harsh. For example Bjork's "I've seen it all" from Selmasongs is a hauntingly beautiful song, but could be a bit harsh and unpleasant. The Wadia renders even challenging songs like this beautifully. For me the biggest challenge was to overcome my own mental challenge of saying that a $8000 unit cannot possibly replace a $50,000 combination. Over many years I have tried multiple all in one units that were hyped up but couldn't match or even come close to the existing system. I won't mention the names of the existing flavour de jour, but I have listened to most of them. I eventually resigned myself to the fact that high-end HiFi weighs a ton, runs hot, has lots of ugly cables and is finicky. Not so anymore, the Intuition is truly high end and should be treated as such. I am a convert, I am really thinking of getting rid of all the old stuff, not because it is bad, it is actually pretty amazing, but I now have a small box that does sound superbly. My suggestion is to get a home audition as soon as you can, then you can decide. Once I started listening, I couldn't stop.
