FS: Gieseler Groß DAC *Price Drop*

Recommended Posts

Item: Gieseler Groß DAC (USB Only)
Location: South Yarra, Melbourne
Price: $1425
Item Condition: Excellent
Reason for selling: Bought (the TOTL) Gieseler Fein II DAC
Payment Method: Cash, Bank Transfer, PayPal
Extra Info: Arguably difficult to find a better DAC without spending a lot more!

 

A few months ago I impulse purchased Clay's new TOTL DAC, so my Groß DAC is available for sale. There has been a lot written by owners here of Gieseler's DAC's, the full list being here: https://www.stereo.net.au/forums/topic/126626-gieseler-dac-reviews-impressions/). But just to give you a sample of what people have said about the Groß DAC:

 

From Max Headroom: https://www.stereo.net.au/forums/topic/246058-ps-audio-vs-devialet/page/3/?tab=comments#comment-3899124

"At the other extreme is the Geiseler GroB DAC. I don't think I can find the words to explain how insanely good it is. @scumbag what system did you listen to the DS Jr and Geiseler GroB in? Did you say you couldn't tell a difference between the DirectStream and the Geiseler? Because the difference was so obvious to me and so dramatic its unbelievable. The Gieseler created more lifelike images of instruments and musicians, almost as if they're standing infront of you, better separation between instruments, better clarity with complex music. It's just a bargain at the asking price."

 

From Rosco8: https://www.stereo.net.au/forums/topic/232237-gieseler-groß-dac-official-release/page/19/?tab=comments#comment-3872685

"A new Grob owner.  It replaced a Cayin DAC (Valve/SS), and I also have an ARCAM-II DAC II, both quite good DACS, at least to my listening.  Very pleased with the Grob  ..  been running a couple of weeks now, great detail and I can hear little nuances in recordings I haven't heard before.  I listen to quite a range of material, from Tidal and FLACs I have rendered from my CD's.  Beautiful rendering of vocals, good separation and detail."

 

From bhobba: https://www.stereo.net.au/forums/topic/234066-groß-dac-owners-thread/?tab=comments#comment-3805282

"I will get right to it - my USB only GROB simply blows away the Direct Stream.   That's right - a 2.3k or so DAC takes out, and make no mistake about it, the difference is not subtle, the much much more expensive Direct Stream with the latest software etc (I think its about $8k or so here in Aus)."

 

From Conch: https://www.stereo.net.au/forums/topic/232237-gieseler-groß-dac-official-release/page/20/?tab=comments#comment-3886445

"I have compared the Groß to the Klein II, Chord 2qute and Accuphase Dac50 and the Groß has the edge over all of them imo. Better bass control, improved clarity, extremely musical and a natural tone that is engaging and enjoyable to listen to for hours on end with all genres of music."

 

Adding my own 2 cents to the commentary, when I upgraded to the Groß from an iFi iDSD Micro, my impression was how much 'more natural' or less digital the sound was from the Groß while detail retrieval was more extended at both ends.

 

Needless to say that the Groß DAC is a truly excellent DAC and amongst the best Australian designed and made DACs available. The unit I am selling has been 'babied' since it was purchased in November 2017 and had it's firmware chip and software updated in March 2018. The internal are set for XLR output but can be configured for RCA output (to resolve ground loop/hum issues). Included are the main DAC body, standard power supply, remote control (which never left it's packaging), and I can provide the user manual given to me and invoice of the purchase (PDF).

 

Pickup is available in South Yarra, Melbourne and I am able to post Australia wide at your expense. Please don't hesitate to ask me any questions you may have.

      Price: $3900 Item Condition: Used 9.5/10 Shipping Options: Pickup is available,Audition is not available, but in-person pickup can be arranged with limited personal contact Suburb or Town: Morley State: Western Australia Payment Method: Cash, direct deposit Reason for selling: Upgraded to Revel F208 Item:  Falcon Studio 30 floorstanding speakers ( walnut finish) 
      Location: Perth
      Price:  $4300 ono  + postage
      Item Condition: 9,9- no marks, scratches , spotless
      Reason for selling: Revel F208 
      Payment Method: Pickup - Cash,, COD Only
      Extra Info: 
       
      I bought these in April 2019 , intrigued by the design and the reviews (below) and also through much discussion with Andy at Audiofix over their suitability in my room. in short they work fine in my room and with their down firing port , makes for a lot of versatility in room positioning.  Ultimately I enjoyed their sound enough to sell my Dynaudio confidence 5. 
       
      but as always in this great game, a recent read up and current home demo of Revel F208 have made me decide to purchase them as hopefully an “ end game” speaker. Well that’s the plan 😎
       
      these present as new , out of the boxes and set up -   No marks at all. So like new with a discount price.
       
      sounds wise, I play a wide variety of music through them and found them to be detailed and balanced, never becoming over bright  the high and mids in particular are impressive. Female vocals in particular sound very nice. The bass is fast and well defined - certainly not plodding.  These could be an ideal speakers for someone liking the Proac, Spendor or Sonus Fabre sound. 
       
      Build quality is spot on, weight in at 35kg each, with 25mm cabinets made in Italy and the heavy and solid plinths.  At a pinch they do look a bit like mid period Sonus  Faber, but certainly they look even more impressive in the flesh. With their design and slimline dimensions, could be a alternative to a similar priced standmount? 
       
      I have the boxes (3) and packaging so transport/courier isn’t an issue. Happy demo at home to interested parties
       
      boxes are 115cm long x 33cm wide and 45cm deep weight would be about 40 kgs per box.
       
      interesting fact - Falcon are distributed the USA by Mofi electronics. 
       
      Cheers dave
