Item: Gieseler Klein DAC II
Price: $650 $600 plus post as required
Item Condition: 9/10 ( 1 adhesive foot replaced - otherwise mint)
Reason for selling: NLR
Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal (+3% unless F/F)
For sale is version 2 of Gieseler's renowned Klein DAC, which for many of you will need no introduction. It has performed fantastically for PCM, but really shines for DSD (up to 256).
I bought it from another SNAer a few months ago, and it remains in the same condition - one of the original sticky rubber feet was missing and has been replaced with a non-matching alternative (this is not visible unless you turn it upside down). I can supply 4 matching feet if you want to remove the originals. Included is the original power supply, manual, invoice and remote.
Cut and paste from http://www.gieseler.com.au/ProductsPage/index.html
but there's a lot more info in this thread:
This is the brand new DSD version of the Klein DAC using AKM’s flagship Verita 32-bit 2ch DAC, the AK4490EQ. It is running in software mode with an on board upgradeable micro & LCD display.
There are three inputs, coaxial, optical & USB. Coaxial & optical will accept 24 bit 192K, USB will accept up to 24 bit 756K PCM & quad speed DSD . (DSD 256) One of the exciting things about this new device is the remote adjustable internal digital filter, featuring five different filter settings. USB input is via an Amanero Combo 384 module in asynchronous mode. There is a multi-stage muting system to eliminate switch on/off & sample rate change noises. Also mixed PCM/DSD playlists will play fully click/pop free. The unit is supplied with a remote control that operates input selection, digital filter settings & DSD volume bypass mode. No software drivers are required for Mac or Linux, but are needed for Windows servers.
The line output stage is a composite design using a high current class A diamond buffer teamed up with a superb Analogue Devices precision wide band amplifier. By combining two devices the result is far superior to the usual single output device. The USB board is powered by a very high quality low noise supply from within the Klein DAC, which contributes to sound quality greatly. The same system is used for the S/PDIF inputs (Coax & Optical). These are then processed by a Wolfson WM8804 which minimalizes jitter. There are no output capacitors and the max DC offset is less than a millivolt. Also compared to the standard Klein all power supplies have been upgrade with Gyrators (capacitor multipliers) This has greatly reduced incoming high frequency mains noise & interference.
All components are individually selected for reliability, sound and are sourced through quality suppliers such as Element14, RS Components, Digikey & Mouser Electronics. The unit is powered by an external high capacity IE core 9v 2A AC linear Plug pack with an Australian C-Tick Compliance Mark. The device is assembled in house on a dual layer PCB utilizing ground planes.

Item Condition: Unmarked condition, perfectly working

I am selling my Meitner MA-1 (v1) digital to analog converter (DAC). The MA-1 was designed by Ed Meitner and manufactured in Canada. It is Roon-tested. The latest version (v2) of this DAC retails for $10,000! An upgrade from v1 to v2 is possible but certainly not required: v1 already sounds stunning! The MA-1 comes in its original box with all accessories included. The DAC was bought from Pure Music Group in Melbourne. I am happy to ship the DAC in its sturdy original box at buyer's expense and risk. The dimensions of the box are 28.5cm x 58.5cm x 54.5cm. The gross weight is about 11kg.

I am selling my Meitner MA-1 DAC. This is version 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. 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.
