This is not a dac 19 right? It's a nfb 2

I believe ?

 

Its the forerunner to the modern/current DAC19

 

I'm going for this based on the often repeated line around here, that it's not the dac chip but the implementation that makes the biggest difference.

For $350, I dont think I can go wrong :)

Yep, it's a NFB-2. This DAC was released several years after the original DAC19 (with the PCM1704UK chips).

 

Kingwa used left-over DAC19 cases for the NFB-2 and NFB-3 for a number of years, which causes a lot of confusion at times! :)

So.BATMAQN has gone above and beyond in the post department

That is the best packaging I've ever received. Seriously 10/10 effort.

I should of done a youtube unboxing video :)

 

Turns out this is a bloody great DAC for the $$ too. Only had a chance to sneak a single CD past tonight. Looking forward to playing with the filter setting now.

 

Thanks BATMAQN :)

 

I'd leave proper feedback but cant find that section ?? I'll have a look on the PC later..

      Item: PS Audio PerfectWave DAC (upgraded to MK II)
      Location: Canberra region
      Price: $2,100 ono (i'll include shipping Aust wide)
      Item Condition: Excellent
      Reason for selling: recently bought a new DAC,  this is now surplus to requirements
      Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal (buyer to pay fees), bank transfer
      Extra Info: I've had this since new circa 2012 and upgraded to MK II shortly afterwards. 
       
      I recently had the pleasure to compare it with some current high end DAC's such as the Naim NDX 2, PS Audio Directstream, and Auralic Vega G2 on loan for home demo's. Whilst in the end I went for something new and different, it was in small degrees that the PWD II was bested as is the law of diminishing returns in this hobby of ours. At the end of the day the PWD is a really good DAC that is transparent, dynamic, musical and listening to music from it as the source is pretty bloody awesome. 
       
      Other than being a really good DAC in its own right, the cool thing is that down the track you can upgrade to Directstream DAC, and also upgrade the Bridge to the mk II if you have Roon.
       
      Original double boxing and remote (mk II remote) included. I cant find OEM power cable so I'm including a 1.5m Grave Science power cable which is an upgrade in itself at no extra cost.
       
      From the Darko review of the MK II some years ago;
       
      https://darko.audio/2012/10/ps-audio-perfectwave-dac-mkii-review-part-2/
       
      "Think of the MKI as a flat white or a cappuccino. Then picture a long black (Americano). That’s the MKII. It’s tastier and brings more zing. More kick too. Without the milk and froth, you’re closer to the bean, closer to the music. The MKI presentation is a shade more congealed that its successor. The NativeX-ing MKII is more proficient at clearing clean spaces between stage players without a thinning of acoustic mass.
       
      The PerfectWave MKII isn’t the best DAC in the world either. To say so is dumb hyperbole. Running up a Tom Evans amplifier and Avant Garde Trio hill against a dCS Puccini + uClock saw the dCS ascend with more graceful ease – the PS Audio unit was contrasted as a meal with beautifully presented tonal flavours but tainted by too much pepper and spice. There’s nothing out of the ordinary there. At AU$29k, one would expect the dCS to best the considerably cheaper PS Audio box. That the latter got so close with listener satisfaction and detail trawl is commendable."

      Item Condition: Used, Excellent Condition
      Reason for selling: Upgrade/ NLR
      Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal As Friend (or + %Fees), COD Only
      Extra Info:
      I am the 2nd owner of this DAC and had purchased this DAC from a fellow SNA member @chick3nrice start of this year to replace my previous DAC (Audiolab M-DAC). Refer to previous FS listing: 
       
       
       
      The DAC had performed well in my system and I felt it was a step-up in comparison to the M-DAC... especially in terms of better resolution and detail. Also see previous FS listing for chick3nrice's impressions of the DAC.
       
      The DAC is in excellent used condition as can be seen in the pictures. Included is the remote, powercable, manual and have the original factory packaging and box. Able to ship interstate at buyers expense and risk; rest assured it will be well packed.

      Does anyone have any recommendations fora pair of headphones and a headphone DAC and AMP (or combo DAC/AMP) for around $1,000? (Can be more or less) Bonus if that price includes a decent mic too. Thanks!
      Usage is generally PC gaming/YouTube basically, with occasional music. Have a HTS in a different room with good equipment for movies and music etc, plus console gaming.
