This is a Klein DAC Special Edition which is basically a souped up version of Klein DAC 1.
When compared to the standard dac1, the differences are shunt regulators power the output stage & analogue section of the DAC. The other differences are, AK4495EQ (AK4490EQ in std model), low phase noise clock with seperate psu for the S/PDIF section (crystal only in std), slightly upgraded inline signal resistors & filter caps.
On the sound side, IMO vocals sounded better on this dac when compared to DAC II as it sounds more involving to my ears. As a vocal lover I am actually conflicted on whether I like this one better or the DAC II.

Item: Arcam irDAC with Linear Power Supply
Location: Northern Tasmania
Item Condition: Mint with original box
Reason for selling: Unused as now into balanced audio
Payment Method: Bank Transfer
Extra Info: I could not believe the puny power supply which came with this lovely DAC so purchased a linear PS and inserted into the container as shown in the pics. Note it is NOT an Arcam PS but is far superior and makes all the difference to the effectiveness of the DAC.
The heavy PS brings the all up weight of the package to 2.2 kg so, FYI, postage from here to Sydney is $33.
I part with it with some reluctance as it is one of the best single ended DACs I've had the pleasure to own - you can read glowing reports of it on the net but remember those reports are with the original wall wart PS. The linear one with this DAC takes it to a new level.

Bought this Dac in February from an esteemd SNA'er who looks after his gear. Note this is the later updated version that accepts up to 24/96 via usb. I have seen the earlier version (only up to 48khz via usb) go for more $$ here. This is a great sounding DAC, everything upsampled to 192khz, and was a huge step up from my earlier unit. I used as a dac for hi-res PC files via SPDIF which accepted up to 192khz files, as well as with a Primare DP via AES. I have set condition at 8/10 on account of a small mark on the front which I only noticed after I checked the pics. This will probably wipe off with the right cleaning solution. I will also throw in a Aurealis 110 Ohm AES/EBU Digital Cable with Vampire XLRs purchased new ($RRP around $70 shipped) from Aurealis Audio for $30. No box for dac.
