Great DAC.


The sound from this unit is killer and you will struggle to better for the money.


Do I need another DAC?

Wife will kill me.

Have you just upped the price from $500 to $600 "due to too much interest"?

      Item: Maverick Audio Tube Magic D1 - Plus Edition
      Location: Mid North Coast NSW
      Price: $170 + freight
      Item Condition: Recently Serviced 8/10
      Reason for selling:  Upgraded to DAC / Streamer
      Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only
      Extra Info: 
      Used this as a Pre / DAC (as it has a volume control) that I connected directly to my Power Amp.
      Very versatile with 3 x digital inputs as well as an analogue. Very nice sound, see reviews online.
      Purchased from Mike Lenehan, this was the upgraded plus edition that Mike used in his system for a while.
      I had it serviced recently by Kimil Elelectronics in Sydney so its been checked and is ready to go.
      Selling for what it cost me to get it serviced so a good deal for someone wanting a nice DAC / Headphone amp.
      Can deliver to Sydney or Gold Coast or in between as I travel regularly to both.

      Item: BENCHMARK DAC3 HGC + SoundAffairs Linear PSU & Mods
      Location: Bondi Junction, NSW
      Price: $4350
      Item Condition: Excellent (being conservative, see note below*)
      Reason for selling: Have gone 'ethernet'...
      Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only
      Extra Info: 
      BENCHMARK DAC3 HGC. Black version. James Soh SoundAffairs external AC to DC Linear PSU and mods—Ultima Femto Clock, Ultima Voltage Regulator, etc. Have had the unit since March 2019 (bought new). Including retail for the unit (A$3700), the price of the PSU and mods (A$2200), double-freight and import duties via Singapore (A$600), overall retail price is ~A$6500. Reason for selling is that I am moving in a different direction with my sources & DAC, to networked audio over ethernet. This unit is USB-based. DAC comes with original remote.  *Some might say the unit is "as new" given that the little nicks on the PSU were there when it shipped to me! However, since it's been modded I suppose technically the Benchmark unit itself is definitely not "as new". PAYMENT VIA PAYPAL ONLY.   Well, if you're interested in this listing you probably have done your research already. This listing is not for just the highly sought-after Benchmark DAC3 HGC—as if that weren't enough—but for that unit extensively modded by James Soh of SoundAffairs in Singapore, including his all-important custom Linear DC PSU:      Benchmark DAC2 family modification
      WWW.MYSOUNDAFFAIRS.COM For customer reviews, please click here Change the simple oscillator circuit that is used for the ESS9018 Sabre DAC with our Ultima FEMTO low jitter clock then replaced the critical...     Even in its BASE retail form, the Benchmark DAC3 HGC is on a number of high-profile current 'best of' lists, including Stereophile's Recommended Components in its highest "A+" designation:    Recommended Components: 2019 Edition Digital Processors | Stereophile.com
      WWW.STEREOPHILE.COM Digital Processors Editor's Note: The sound of any particular CD transport/digital processor combination will be dependent on the datalink used-see "Bits is Bits?" by Christopher Dunn and...     Quite some cost, logistics and waiting times in orchestrating this combo I can tell you...here's your chance to leverage my expended effort and get hold of this setup, ALMOST NEW, with NO WAIT TIME, and at a STEEP DISCOUNT.

      Photos: See extensive pics. The small nicks are visible on the PSU pics.
