Item: Wyred 4 Sound DAC2 - Black
Location:  Brisbane
Price: $1000 plus Postage
Item Condition: Excellent
Reason for selling: Upgraded
Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Direct Deposit
Extra Info:

 

I Bought this Dac new in September 2011 from the Australian Distributor (Deep Hz Audio) and it comes with all original Packaging; manuals and cables and is in as new condition.

 

It is a very nice sounding DAC which uses the ESS Sabre 9018 Processor Chips.  The sound is best described as highly detailed but without being overly analytical.  The Dac2 is high on features including 24/192 Async USB input; 1 x AES/EBU, 2 x SPDIF, 2 x Toslink and I2S inputs; Remote control; Home theatre Bypass &  Volume Control.  The Volume Control and HT bypass mean that you can potentially skip using a dedicated preamp in your system which is how I used to use this DAC.

The DAC2 retailed for AU$1950 when I bought it less than 18 months ago and it is still the current top of the line W4S Dac.  I have priced it for a quick sale.

Hi Quickbrick - do you mind me asking what you upgraded to?

Well it's really not a fair fight as they are not even close in pricing.

My main source is vinyl and that is the sound I am trying to reproduce when I listen to digital sources. This is obviously a tough ask as most digital sources have artifacts that make them sound ...well ... not quite vinyl.

The Meitner plays dsd and gets me much closer to the analogue sound than the w4s ever could. it seems the large void between analogue and digital are getting closer and closer. I have heard the playback designs mps5 before and I imagine the dcs and emm labs offerings are similarly good, but the Meitner MA1 well and truely gets me into the ballpark of these levels of performance for a more realistic budget. If you get the chance to hear one I encourage you to do it!

      Hi there, I'm regrettably letting go of my OBJECTIVE2+ODAC  dac/amp combo from JDS Labs. 
       
      This is a ripping little unit with 600+mW, and 2 x gain stages. Unlike other O2/ODAC models, this one had the power connection on the rear, and is also to accept an analogue line-in from another source so can work as a standalone headphone amp. The ODAC section can work as a standalone DAC, and is USB powered meaning it doesn't need to be plugged in. 
       
      This has performed flawlessly for me, and I'm only letting it go as I'm working from home these days and my Questyle is performing desktop duties. 
       
      Unit will be come with the wall-wart power supply and usb data cable.

      Hi Guys,
      I hope everyone is safe and following the isolation and stay safe rules during this tough times. Take care.
       
      Question about a DAC.
       
      listening to my recently acquired Monitor Audio speaker with Rotel 971 MKll amplifier.
       
       Today , I just added my old Fiio E17 DAC and headphone amp, vow immediately the sound signature become very impressive. Now the music is very clear and high are smooth.
       
      But the DAC supports only 16bit/48khz , if I play music from tidal master or Spotify or youtube irrespective of the source quality.
       
      So all the music is streamed in 16/48khz by Fiio? If the quality is low the DAC upgrade the sound?
       
      Please excuse me for the dumb question, This is my first DAC for stereo music.

      Thanks

      The weight alone shows that a solid power unit has been integrated, capable of guaranteeing stability. The 6800uF filter capacitors, a ring core transformer and electronic volume control all make a clear statement. The SV-400 is also equipped with a D/A converter in order to playback music formats offered by a PC or music server. A USB socket acts as the input here.
