GIESELER ENHANCED USB Fein II DAC - Brand new.

 

This is a one off enhanced build Fein II DAC - USB only.

The main differences compared to the standard version are.

Output transformer upgrade. These are double the price of the regular transformers & fully shielded.

The landed cost from Jensen for a pair of these is $232

The main internal power supply is a fully discreet version using no feedback & a very low noise LED voltage reference plus 35000 uf of Nichicon Gold Tune filter capacitors.

Sound differences compared to a standard Fein II is improved midrange and slightly more extended bass.

Overall I would describe it as a very sweet sounding unit with a noticeable improvement over the standard version.

Note this is a brand new build, not a demo or display version

Cost is $1750 which includes Express post shipping.

I think this represents good value as the standard USB only Fein II listed for $2000.

Will handle 384K PCM & up to DSD512

  • Gieseler Audio changed the title to GIESELER ENHANCED USB Fein II DAC - Brand new - price drop

Good question but as I no longer have any Kompakt DAC's left I can't do a direct comparison.

However from past comparisons between the Jensen output transformers I would say this DAC is a little sweeter 

& cleaner in the midrange.

      Item Condition: Used but in absolutely superb condition Shipping Options: Pickup available but audition is not available.,Shipping is available at agreed cost. Suburb or Town: Eastwood State: NSW Payment Method: Paypal, EFT, COD Reason for selling: Upgraded to SPx cable Further information:
       
      Here I have a 2.0m bi-wire set of the truly wonderful Audio Note UK AN Spe 19 strand 99.99% pure silver Litz speaker cable - 16.0m in total.  They are used, but are in absolutely excellent condition, and well and truly burned in.  I've been using them for a few years now, and am selling only because I've recently upgraded to SPx. If you're not familiar with ANUK cables, I encourage you to do some research - these are not cheap, but they are very, very good and at this asking price, they're approx. 40% of the new cost which I think you'll agree, is a bargain - particularly as they're in 'new' condition.  Authenticity can be confirmed by the Audio Note dealer here in Sydney. I'm happy to post them, so please contact me with your details, so I can work out how much it will cost.  I charge the actual shipping cost only - no handling fee is added on. You can pay on pick-up, or by bank deposit.  Further, if you wish to pay by Paypal you are welcome to do so, but please note that Paypal's exorbitant fees of 2.6% of the sale price are to be paid by the Buyer.  By buying the item, you are agreeing to this arrangement.  If you're in any doubt about the authenticity of the cables, the Audio Note dealer in Sydney can confirm they are genuine.   You are welcome to inspect the cables prior to paying for them, but given my HiFi setup, unfortunately you cannot audition them. Incidentally, the photo shows the cable before it was re-terminated and it's now been terminated by the Audio Note dealer here in Sydney

      Item Condition: Very good for their age Shipping Options: Pickup available and you can audition. Suburb or Town: Mount Martha State: VIC Payment Method: EFT, Cash or PayPal Reason for selling: Upgrade bug has bitten again Further information:
      Selling a Pair of Vintage Boston Acoustics A400 loud speakers .
      They were made Circa 1985
      I stumbled across this pair earlier last year and couldnt resist.....but like a lot of projects, it stalled and now I need funds for a new amp.
      All the drivers have been had the surrounds replaced and new dustcovers.
      Please note there are no Grills ...... easy to make new ones if you are OK on the tools etc.
      The speakers are in very good working order.
      Condition for there age is better than I expected, the real wood veneer is in supprisingly good condition with only a small piece that has lifted.
      I looked at rebuilding the X-Overs but that stalled due to doubting my skill level.
      There is a lot of info on the web from other owners/restorers.
       
      These Speakers are tall and wide I DO NOT HAVE BOXES so I cant see an easy way to ship interstate.......but I may be able to help local buyers with delivery for a small fee.
      Pick Up would require a Med - large Station Wagon or similar
