Densen CD Player/transport, with digital input, allowing it to function as DAC. The CD transport uses an external clock control to avoid playback jitter by using same clock in both sending and receiving end of the data-stream.
Signals pass through the advanced pcb layout to the DAC, then to the analogue stage using Densen’s unique non feedback, class A topology.

      Item: VITUS AUDIO RI-100 Integrated Amplifier with DAC module
      Location: Princes Hill, Victoria
      Price: $9,300 ** Price Drop ** negotiable and purchaser pays shipping 
      Item Condition: 8/10, very slight abrasion and dint on front panel.
      Reason for selling: Moving in a new direction
      Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only
      Extra Info:
      I am the first and only owner of this amazing unit. I purchased it in June 2016. The DAC module was fitted by the local distributor.
      I have all the original boxes, manuals and packing material.
      The marks on the front panel are hard to notice from anywhere other than close up but given the pride people take in their gear (me included) I've reduced the price for the unit. For full transparency I've included a very close-up picture of the marks as well as more general pictures of the amp.
      The DAC has USB, Toslink, AES and S/PDIF inputs and handles DSD256. It is a fantastically resolving DAC but never harsh - it has the signature Vitus sound.
      For those of you unfamiliar with the Vitus gear here is a review (there are many): http://www.theabsolutesound.com/articles/vitus-audio-ri-100-integrated-amplifier/

      Item: Bryston BDA-1 External DAC, Black 19” faceplate
      Location: Melbourne
      Price: $1,999
      Item Condition: Used
      Reason for selling: Starting a family
      Payment Methods: Pickup – Cash, Bitcoin, Litecoin, Ethereum
      Extra Info: For sale, an industry benchmark DAC from Bryston. At a fraction of the original purchase price, the External DAC delivers superb sonic performance through re-sampling and re-clocking of the digital input signal.
      The DAC has been run in a smoke free environment experiencing no issues ever.
      DAC is in original packaging. Only selling due to starting a family and sadly, the Hi-Fi gear must go.

      Item: Audiolab 8200 CDQ

      Location: NE Melb 'burbs
      Price: $850 ... now dropped 10% to $750 ....... now dropped to  $680 .... including SNA donation – shipping costs covered by purchaser
      Item Condition: Used, very good to excellent condition
      Reason for selling: Upgraded, and this now needs a home where it will be used  
      Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only
      Extra Info:
      This is a great bit of kit.  A quality CD player, a fine DAC with numerous digital inputs, as well as analogue inputs enabling the unit to run as pre-amp.   A damn handy machine for the price, especially with balanced outputs
      I purchased this via SNA about 6 months ago when re-entered the world of my audio obsession, and it was first bit of new kit.  This got me started, but I quickly found that I moved to streaming digital files rather than playing the actual CD.  As a result, this didn’t get used anywhere near enough.  It really needs to go someone who will use it, rather than sitting around.
      The only marks that I can see on it (apart from the fingerprints), are 1 small scratch on the upper right of the faceplate, and 3 tiniest of nicks in the top rim of faceplate.  .... I'd frankly never noticed them, until right now !
      It comes in its original box with manual, remote & cable.  I’d prefer local pick up for convenience (NE Melb ‘burbs), but it can be shipped at purchasers cost.
      In the interest of full disclosure, the unit has recently been serviced by Audiolab service techs and the firmware has been upgraded.  Since its return, I’ve opened the box & checked it.

      Item: Arcam irDAC with Linear Power Supply
      Location: With a friend in Adelaide
      Price: $495
      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 .
      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.
