Further information:

For sale is a PS Audio Stellar Gain Cell DAC - a DAC/pre/head-amp (in black, great condition).

 

I'm the first owner, bought from an Australian stockist in mid-2018. It comes with its original remote & original packaging.

 

This is a somewhat reluctant sale as I am, in current conditions, unable to justify hanging on to more than one DAC. Of late, I've been tinkering with my system - as you do - and now have a dedicated line-level pre-amp (which means I don't need the Stellar's analogue pre functionality any more), as well as another DAC (because I wanted to try a R2R implementation). Therefore, I need to move the Stellar on, albeit a little wistfully.

 

The unit has been a terrific performer. As a DAC, it creates a beguilingly engaging, balanced and highly listenable sound - with lots of detail, solid and impressive sound staging, and a strong dollop of presence in its imagining of the music. As befits PS Audio's Stellar line, it also comes with a pleasing hint of warmth (or full-bodiedness, perhaps) in its presentation. As an analogue pre, it is very good - I used it mostly for my vinyl set up (running into it a Thorens TD125 through a Musical Surroundings Phonomena II+) to very good effect. It also has a really good head-amp - though admittedly I don't use headphones often, so that was definitely under-utilised on my part.

 

In turn, the Stellar Gain Cell DAC was feeding my PS Audio S300 power amp - a nicely matching pair indeed.

Great unit, very flexible. Mine is silver and I use it to switch between a streamer and ht bypass from the avr (ht bypass). Nice open dac with filters to suit. GLWTS.
