I am selling my Meitner MA-1 DAC. This is verson 1 of this DAC. An upgrade to version 2 is possible as far as I know (if interested, please contact puremusicgroup, the original vendor of this DAC). I never felt the necessity to upgrade. The DAC already sounds stunning, very clear, open and transparent. I almost only used it to play back PCM (CD rips) and it excels in this discipline. PCM is internally upsampled to 2xDSD. I played with additional upsampling possibilities in Roon but prefer the raw signal from the MA-1. Meitner DAC's are Roon-tested. The MA-1 has the following inputs: 1x USB, 1x AES/EBU, 2x TOSLINK S/PDIF, 2x COAX S/PDIF. It comes with a remote control, which I never used (nor did the previous owner as far as I can tell). The DAC was designed and manufactured in Canada.
The DAC is unmarked and in perfect condition. I rate it as 9.5/10 only because it is used. Please note that the unit comes with a short power chord of only 50cm length because it was sitting close to the bottom of my hifi rack. I am happy to ship the DAC in its original sturdy box at buyer's expense and risk. The box was already used to ship the DAC from the previous owner in Sydney to Melbourne without problems. The dimensions of the box are 28.5cm x 58.5cm x 54.5cm. The gross weight is about 11kg. Pickup from Williamstown or Carlton is another (preferred) option.
I bought the MA-1 from @PKay on this forum. I link the original ad below, which also contains lots of additional technical info about this DAC. I paid $4000 (or was it $4100?) plus shipping for this DAC less than a year ago. I offer it now at a substantially reduced price.
Item: Schiit Bifrost DAC
Location: Perth, WA
Price: $350 neg. Donation to SNA included
Item Condition: Very good condition, some oxidisation visible on RCA terminals but will be contact cleaned prior to sale
Reason for selling: NLR
Payment Method: Pickup or Ship as negotiated - Cash or Paypal
Extra Info: I am selling my Schiit Bifrost digital to analog converter due to lack of use. It's a great looking and sounding little unit that has not been used to it's full potential while in my possession. The DAC was always kept with the rear power switch in the off position until I planned on listening, so powered hours on the unit are minimal.
I have not opened the case, nor has it been upgraded, so I believe it is the 4490 DAC inside.
These are well reviewed as shown below:

A few reviews from the web below:
Item: Vitus Audio RCD100
Location: Blackheath NSW
Price: $7900 now $7200
Item Condition: perfect
Reason for selling:
I really want this sold, at this point to fund other hobbies. I believe this is the cheapest this unit has ever been offered on Stereonet, and this is also almost certainly the lowest hours used, in commensurate condition. A world class DAC, with a matching CD player thrown in for free.
A number of reasons have led me to the decision to part with my stereo, but ultimately work has meant I am simply not listening to a beautiful stereo in a big house that I am never in.
So I am downsizing, and with it selling a stereo that needs room to breathe. This is an opportunity to pick up some mint condition items that have very low hours on them.
Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only
Extra Info: this unit was bought from the Australian importer as New in 2014, and has spent over half it’s life in its original box hence the sale. It is literally perfect condition with less than 500 hours clocked. It was paired with the matching RI100 and a pair of Sasha’s, both already sold. This item would be ideal for a new buyer. I can’t find a fault with it. No scratches, marks, or fading. It sounds as good as the reviews say, and retailed new for $18,000, representing a saving of over $10,000 as I would like it to sell promptly.
