Item Condition: Used - Excellent Condition see Photos
Reason for selling: Upgrade/ NLR
Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal (as a friend or +fees), COD Only
Purchased this Pre from @scumbag. Has been an excellent addition to my system and was a real keeper - however I have simplified my setup and moved away from separates.
Lots of great reviews of this unit online and on the forums. Instead of trying to explain the magic myself, refer to the following from previous listing I purchased from:
The unit will come with power lead, remote, manual and double boxed. I also bought a 2nd remote from Deep HZ (brand new & not used). The surface of the original remote had become slightly sticky but completely functional. Both remotes included. Able to ship interstate at buyers expense and risk; rest assured it will be well packed.
Links to some reviews and features from the W4S website:
Input / Output wiring upgraded to Kimber Tcss wire 2nd stage filtering caps (4-22,000uf caps) are upgraded to the Wyred 4 Sound Low ESR "SUPER CAP" designed for power supplies Vacuum Fluorescent Display (VFD) Optical rotary encoder (volume knob) Fully functional remote control 12V DC Trigger input (to automatically activate HT Bypass mode) Two - 12V DC Trigger outputs Home Theater bypass (customizable for any input, also DC Trigger input selected) Balance control Absolute phase control (0°/180°) - an interesting experience - it's amazing how changing the absolute phase effects the sound.

Item: Wyred 4 Sound DAC-1 with femto clock upgrade
Location: Sth Gold Coast
Price: $600 Firm (incl. delivery within metropolitan Australia - would also help out if you are further afield).
The current RRP for the DAC-1 in Australia without the upgraded clock is $1250. The only difference being the higher resolution capability of the USB module in the current productions.
Item Condition: Excellent. Not a mark on it.
Reason for selling: Having a change
Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal (+ any fees), COD Only
Extra Info: DAC was purchased new from Deep Hz Audio in November 2015 with the femto clock upgrade which cost an additional $275. I decided on the DAC-1 with upgrade over the DAC-2 as I didn't need the pre-amp or other features and by all accounts SQ is pretty close between the two. The USB on this unit is limited to 24/96 but goes higher over coaxial (and toslink I assume). Non-DSD version too.
I've really enjoyed this DAC but thought I would have a change. I think there is some transferable warranty.
Here is the W4S link including features and specification. This is for the current V2 model although the features list seems identical other than higher resolution over USB. Here are the Positive Feedback review and 6 Moons review of the DAC-1. The latter includes some comparisons with other DACs including PS Audio.
There is more info out there on the DAC-2 which will give you a good idea of performance. This link explains the differences between DAC-1 and DAC-2.

I'm the original owner bought from Peter Thompson at Deep Hz Audio. You will need to speak to Peter whether this MS2 unit is comparable to the latest units as far as upgrading to SSD and 32bit audio if you wish to do so. This unit has a 2TB HDD (with about 1.3TB worth of music in Flac files) and 2GB memory. Music buffers into the memory before playback so no music plays directly from the hard drive, eliminating any lag/jitter issues. Rips CDs to internal HDD or simply transfer files over your network from another source. Comes with the original standard power pack.

A beast of a power supply. This took the sound quality of the MS2 to a much greater level of detail and openness with a blacker background. Honestly, the W4S MS2 with this LPS unit has a similar sound to my Antipodes DX2.
