Further information:  This just traded Chord Electronics Dave DAC is in excellent secondhand condition and comes with the expensive (when new) Ensemble stand.
This configuration when new retails for 18K. This is an exceptional piece of kit. 


According to Chord, DAVE is the most advanced DAC they've ever made. It features the very best conversion technology available, using proprietary techniques never seen before, which they claim, make DAVE the most advanced DAC/preamp amplifier in the world. DAVE stands for ‘Digital to Analogue Veritas in Extremis’, a moniker that best reflects the product’s capability; a device so advanced and with so few compromises, that it is absolutely truthful in the extreme — a standard that all other DACs on the market simply cannot hope to match.

It is also a reference-level headphone amplifier and ‘digital preamp’, distilling some  twenty years of Chord research, development and advanced engineering into one device. At its heart  is a new version of the advanced Spartan 6 Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) with 1,000x the processing power of the traditional mass-produced chip DAC.

DAVE’s FPGA is loaded with over a million lines of code to confront complex timing issues head-on, with speed and precision.

The FPGA’s extraordinary capability enables a number of key sonic benefits, including significantly improved timing and the best noise-shaper performance of any known DAC. DAVE’s technology delivers music with unmatched reality and musicality, with an unrivalled timing response. The device’s lossless digital volume control outputs the signal direct to your power amplifier for the purest experience.

DAVE has a full-sized LCD display, showing input, sample frequency, volume and set-up configurations options, within Chord’s famous porthole design. On its fascia, DAVE also features a rotary encoder with a large stainless steel controller and ball buttons, enabling direct interactivity in addition to the supplied remote control.

Hey LWA Staff,

Just had a few questions I tried to send via PM, however you cannot receive messages.

Wondering if there are any blemishes or marks on the units?

Do you have original shipping boxes/manuals etc?
