Basically this one:
A beautiful full bodied NOS transformer coupled DAC, - it's better off with someone that will use it.
Besides, I need to get to see the carpet on my music room floor again sometime soon! (yes, it's that bad!)
In lovely condition and it all works perfect of course. I just noticed under strong sunlight that it has a slight hairline scratch across the front facia. Not too sure when that happened!
It has both RCA for SPDIF and AES/EBU (my preference) for digital inputs.
The power supply has a massive trannie and chokes and is valve rectified and regulated as well. This DAC is full of quality components!
If you want USB, just purchase the board and bits and fit it straight into the slot already there.
The unit weighs around 10kgs and I am happy to safely pack and post this at cost.
Any further questions - just ask.
