Item: MHDT Havana Tube DAC with USB input
Price: $450 + freight
Payment Methods: Bank Deposit, PayPal, Cash – Pickup.
Reason for Sale: Have upgraded to the MHDT Atlantis Item condition and description: Very good. These went for about $1150 in 2008. I’ve had various DAC’s over the past few years, but have always come back to the Havana. Works beautifully with my Squeezbox Touch and Antipodes. If you like the smoothness of tubes read the links below. It’s been recently checked out by Ultra Systems here in Perth and had the RCA’s upgraded. Also has a Hi-Fi Tuning Gold fuse and 1958 Tung Sol 2C51 tube. The more expensive Atlantis is better, but not by much. Unfortunately, I don't have original boxes, but will pack well for shipping. Manuals are downloadable form MHDT.
From Jeff Day's Positive Feedback review: The Havana is Mhdt Lab's statement USB DAC, and frankly speaking, at $899 (USD) it bests the superb Wavelength Cosecant V3 ($3500) in my Hi-Fi rig, making it some kind of miraculous bargain, and one which will surely delight music lovers on a budget. Without reservation I recommend the Havana to music lovers everywhere as a high performance USB DAC, and also as a remarkable bargain.
