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.

      Small enough to fit on a bookshelf and use far less power than a full PC or laptop so you can really leave them running. 
       
      Your wife/girlfriend/dog/cat wont even notice.

      Extra Info: 
       
      Pure Class A  2x35 Watt PSET (Parallel Set) which is used in the very high end tube
      amplifiers like Aries Cerat $30K USD. This gives you uncompromising power to run in pure class A almost any 89+ db speakers.  Lack of power is Achilles weak spot of most tube amplifiers and I believe PSET is the best solution used by the very high end manufacturers. Legendary Mastersound brand - makes PF100 tube amplifier $50K USD. Fabulous musical EL34 tubes. To my knowledge, this model is absolutely the best value for integrated tube amplifier in that price range; made in Italy but priced similarly to comparable Chinese models. Includes very good phono pre-amplifier - same as in the flagship models.  This is Box R version with remote control (cost $330 AUD extra).

      Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only
      Extra Info:
       
      This is a complete custom build from the ground up based on a Rega P series design. Raw cost of materials and items was over $6000.
       
      Plynth milled from single block of billet alloy on CNC router (around 15kg) Finished in red automotive paint Followed same dimmensions as a Rega P3 plynth. 5x Maglev feet (tried with 3, 4 and 5 configurations and 5 was the best) IsoKinetic IsoDrive Power Supply with 33/45 speed selection IsoKinetic 25mm Acrylic Platter IsoKinetic IsoSub Groovetracer Machined Subplatter IsoKinetic Phosphor Bronze Bearing Sleeve IsoKinetic Ruby Bearing + Spindle Oil (lifetime supply left in bottle) IsoKinetic Puck/Stabiliser IsoKinetic Red Thing Silicone Belt + Spare New One in Packet IsoKinetic MTB-D Motor Thrust Bearing + Motor Isolation Mod for Premotec Motor Premotec 50hz Synchronous Motor Audiomods Series 4 Tonearm with Series 5 bearing, lift and arm hold. Full VTA Adjustment - no VTA adjuster.  All original weights and headshell weights/spacers included to adjust to any cart. Custom Acrylic Dust Cover to accomodate arm height No cart included, but I did have an Ortofon MC25e on it and it was stunning.  
      *I have covered the hole bottom left corner where a power button would have gone if I didnt use the external motor PSU and controller with a samurai silver coin from WA mint. So the turntable is dubbed "The Samurai"
       
      For interstate buyers, it will be professionally crated and foam lined for shipping with tonearm back in original transport box. Shipping Australia wide with insurance included.
       
      For those that want to know where to from here - my next build will be in the similar vein...but using the MK6 Audiomods tonearm for primary, 200mm monster delrin platter,  ceramic bearing sleeve, larger billet plynth with 2 armboards for future arm addition and external motor and controller.
