SOLD: FS: Gieseler - Groß DAC, 3 input + Kraftwerk PSU

Recommended Posts

Item: Gieseler - Groß DAC, 3 input model, plus M18PSU - Kraftwerk 12v 4A power supply (and original power supply)
Location:  Brisbane - Inner North
Price: $1550 reducing to $1,400
Item Condition:  Excellent.  Includes remote which was only used to program a universal remote. DAC purchased in 2018 and Kraftwerk earlier this year.
Reason for selling: NLR
Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only
Extra Info: Well regarded DAC that outperforms for its price range. Well supported on stereo.net.au, with plenty of reviews to be found.  This model used to sell for approx $2300 new and the Kraftwerk power supply upgrade is an extra $295.  The Kraftwerk upgrade produced a substantial improvement in sound quality in my system, particularly in the soundstage.  The improvement from the upgrade is also well reviewed. 

 

This DAC was outstanding value at the new price not to mention the asking price here.  The unit has the latest firmware upgrade (2006be10).

Can I ask what you use as a streamer? Sorry about the newbie questions but only starting out. I'll be running this with a Luxman SQ38u.

 

Thanks

I use an old Antipodes server which is loaded with a free software called Daphile. The sound from this Dac is fabulous. At this price it shouldn’t last long.

Still the best I've used, though I'm currently having fun modding some TDA1541A based DAC's. Not up to this level yet though with some luck I'll get there.

Yes, that's an antique. When I first saw it, I had to have it. The same as our black stained English oak Rosenstengel dining table and chairs. Had to change the horrid green felt cushioning for red though. Quality shows no matter the age :)

      Been going through the Gieseler DAC threads to dig up owners’ reviews & impressions over the past 2 few years.  Together, they provided an impressive picture of how well Clay has made his DACs and has lead me to consider  purchase the upcoming Groß DAC with balanced outputs.
