Further information:

This is the first step if you want to climb to MSB world, the king of digital playback in hiend audio at this time. Although it is "entry level" in MSB world but a giant to other DAC manufactures on the market, you name it.  It inherits all the future-ready architecture, you can utilise/purchase modular modules which are shared in the Reference or Select DACs

 

What special about this DAC?

- MSB proprietary ladder DAC with fully balanced design and 2 x Prime DAC

- Full thick CNC aluminium block to block EMI/RFI between each critical sections extremely well.

- Dual power supplies which are two full block of CNC aluminium, one PSU powers digital section, one PSU powers analog section with fully shielded DC cables.

- Network Renderer v2 is designed for Roon user from the ground up, it has galvanic isolation (opto isolator) to help the streaming module to effective immunise to any upstream noise/current leakage. 

- The implementation of SPDIF on their onboard/included manufacture option are top-notch, its sound great and consistent across all the input (AES/EBU, Coaxia and Optical)

- You have access to MSB world-class customer service, for instance: 24-48  hour email response from technical support, normally CCed their CEO( Jonathan) if you have  a concern, so you are peace in mind your problem will be resolved.

 

How does it sound?

- I came from Chord Hugo TT2 , comparing with TT2+Mscaller+Sonore optical Rendu, this MSB DAC with its streaming module beats the Chord stack in every single way, many times worth for extra bucks.

- People always say MSB DAC sounds analog, it is so true with Discrete DAC, it is miles better the analog system I owned ( Rega P9, Ortofon Cadenza Blue and Cyrus phono signature/psx-r2) which is around 13k  rrp combined.

So I sold my vinyl system without much thought required.

- The vocal and singers voices are the most standout verus TT2+Mscaller

 

 

 The DAC were purchased From MSB Distributor (Audio Fidelity/SGR Corp), has transferable warranty until Jan 2023.

I have full original boxes and all invoices. Warranty transfer can be done from my end by contacting distributor.

This article says it all really. The VFM is off the chart good and you can easily get by using it as a preamp too.

I tried msb dac directly to my amp, it is not bad verus Pass labs xp-20, the xp-20 adds a bit more depth and 3D soundstage but I trust many people can live with MSB dac direct to amp.

      More audio goodies taking up space!
       
      These are in like new condition.  Sorry, I have no specs.  From memory they are around 90 dB sensitivity.
       
      Since they are so cheap, would prefer a local sale as packing things properly takes so much time.
       
      Any questions - please ask.

      This is a Goldring 9 1/2" stereo silicone unipivot tone arm.   Specs are in one of the pics.
      Made in JAPAN, they were rebranded ES-1000 and imported by Encel's in the early '80s.
       
      It is in excellent condition.  It has been used, but there is not a mark on it anywhere.
      It comes in it's original box which is showing it's age, but also includes all original accessories like the grease and silicone oil syringe.
      No original oil, but I can fill the syringe with a very similar synthetic oil that I use in my Audio Verismo if you like. (free of course)
       
      Also included is the original 4 page user manual and importantly - the mounting template.
       
      I acquired it over 20 years ago, but realistically - well, I'm never going to get to use it!  Any inspection welcome.
       
      The manual says the headshell is not removable - but that's incorrect.  Possibly a translation mistake?
      It easily slides out with the removal of the knurled screw, thus mounting your cart is much simpler and safer.
       
      Happy to post for cost, and I pack my stuff so it arrives perfect.
       
      Any questions - just ask.

      I purchased this SUT brand new from Carlton Audio Visual in late September 2020 to use with my MM phono stage when I purchased a Van Den Hul MC.  
       
      This is a fantastic performing SUT, built like a tank and well isolated. It has 24db gain. I have since upgraded to a new preamp which has an MC phono section so this is no longer required. 
       
      Condition is as brand new with box, manual and remaining warranty.  No scratches or marks. RRP on these is $879. 
       
      Happy to post at buyers cost.
