FOUND: WTB: Integrated Amp with DAC


Recommended Posts

Item: Integrated Amp with onboard DAC
Price Range: <$3000
Item Condition: Used
Extra Info: Must Haves:

DAC

Min 70w/Channel

HT Bypass
Universal remote compatibility (this is lowest priority and could be worked around)

I was originally searching for an amp that could also stream but have decided to use the existing Sonos connect to handle those duties and upgrade it separately in future.

We have an ex-demo Cyrus One Cast which has Google Home / Alexa integration. Offering it for $1450.

Could add a Bluesound Node2i for $949 with $100 cashback promotion on at the moment to take the streaming to the next level and be within your budget.

 

It does meet all your other requirements though.

@CustomHTMy preference  would be for separate devices as you suggest - Choose best amp in budget, get best fitting streamer (either right now or in future) to suit my needs. However, there are competing requirements and hifi spending opportunities don't come around often. Hence the need to have it in one box and for that box to be as future proofed as possible.

Probably not in the budget for the better NADs, but NAD C368 is a good option at $1869 with bluOS 2i module https://klappav.com.au/products/c-368-hybrid-digital-dac-amplifier-bluos-2

I'd favour this over M10 as the bluOS card is modular here... unless you really want a touch screen.

Vaf dcx35. 6ohm and 96db. I originally set out thinking id want at least 150-200w but thatd be overkill for the levels i listen at. They won't be my last speakers but my next will also be reasonably efficient

Something like a Bel canto C5i or used C7R might work for you, has HT bypass etc, if you can find one. Also Bel canto are working on a replacement to the C5i with upgraded power, digital and network streaming capability ie. Roon ready, I assume it won’t be cheap but will likely consider it as an upgrade to my existing Bel canto C5i.

      Why Buy?
      Voted by What Hi-Fi? in 2018 as one of the best 19 stereo amplifiers in the magazine’s lifetime, the Audiolab 8000A is a classic British design that offers plenty of everything: power, transparency, dynamic range.
      I have been the only owner of this excellent unit since purchase in about 1997. Mid-last year I invested $440 in significant maintenance, repairs and upgrade, not just to achieve sonic excellence, but to ensure it will last for another 20 years. (Work was done by acclaimed technician, William Crampton at Factory Audio in Canberra – see statement of work for details of his work on this amp.)
      No significant marks or blemishes at all, but unfortunately one button (the ‘Speakers’ button, which I have never needed to use) was lost many years ago.
       
      Specifications
      Power output: 60 watts per channel into 8 ohms (stereo) (but mine hit 64W – see Williams note on the statement of work) Frequency response: 20Hz to 20kHz Total harmonic distortion: 0.05% Input sensitivity: 0.11mV (MC), 2mV (MM), 100mV (line) Signal to noise ratio: 75dB (MC), 78dB (MM), 80dB (line) Channel separation: 60dB (line) Output: 100mV (line), 0.7V (Pre out) Speaker load impedance: 4 ohms to 16 ohms Dimensions: 445 x 74 x 335mm Weight: 7.6kg

      Item Condition: As new, purchased 3 weeks ago. Shipping Options: Pickup available and you can audition.,Shipping is available at agreed cost. Suburb or Town: Paynesville State: VIC Payment Method: Paypal, EFT or Cash on Pickup Reason for selling: Just after buying this I also bought a Cambridge CXA 81 amp which has an inbuilt DAC. Further information:
       Paid $402.95 only 3 weeks ago but the ended up buying a Cambridge CXA 81 amp which has an inbuilt DAC.  I did a lot of research before buying the SMSL M200 and they come up as the by far best DAC for their price.  Balanced and unbalanced inputs, bluetooth that I found as good as the direct input and extensive tuning options. and an included remote. A great DAC but now surplus to my requirements.
