Abrahamsen V6 DAC - Page 10

post #136 of 204
paara,
No, it does not look like there are two CS8420. Look carefully at the left one. It says CS8397.

BTW, if anyone can help me out giving me interesting hints on a DAC/Pre I would be very grateful.

This Company does not seem to be interested in selling it's audio equipment overseas. My emails have not been responded to.

If you're interested in the Abrahamsen, perhaps you should also look into a used Electrocompaniet ECD-1.

Hi there,
thanks for answering. I'm very aware of the ECD-1, but was rather attracted by the Abrahamsen V6 because of it's price. The ECD-1 is far more costly and can be had for more or less US$ 1000,00 on audiogon.
I'm almost giving up on this one, but I'm very curious about it's performance. I might be able to buy one, but don't want to do it without more information, especially from users.
Thanks a lot again and hope you get some info.
best regards
André

A few pics @ post 25

Have you all given up on this one?
post #140 of 204
I have - I tried to contact every single distributor - not one reply !

I have some connections in Norway so I might be able to help someone getting it shipped from Norway.

Who would be interested?

Depending on costs, I would be interested.

It's just the cost of the unit itself (free shipping from shop to my middleman) + shipping from Norway to you. Anyone else?

As far as I know voltage in Norway is 230V, if this DAC doesn't have voltage selector I doubt that they have US or Brazil voltage compatible units for sale there. Voltage converter is an option too, but if it were me I would rather not go to that road.

I can mention that the price for one unit is 3995NOK which equals 675USD (04-SEPTEMBER-2009)

Ye, 220V.

I don't think it has, based on their unwillingness to ship outside Norway.

What do you actually loose using a voltage converter? It's the opposite story for me. Quite a few amps and DACs from the US only use 110V.

Niemion,
I'd be very interested in getting one. Have you heard one yet? Did you get a chance to compare it?
In Brasilia, the city I live in, the voltage is 220V 60Hz so it would be perfect. In Brazil and in the States it is very easy to get a 220V output, since you only have to put both wires together. I always prefer 220V at home, even when the native voltage is 110V.
I would agree with argentum regarding the voltage converter. It normally does cap dynamics, creates some noise, etc.
Since I won't have that problem I'd be very interested in your offer, niemion.
Unfortanately we have 60% tax on imported goods here in Brazil so I'd have to see if I have a friend that is coming from the States or Europe. If it had been a week ago it would have been perfect, since my sister-in-law was in Europe. She got back today.
At the moment I have a Dacmagic and would love to know how the Abrahamsen fares against it.
Thanks a lot in advance
best regards
André

Haha and I thought we in Europe are cursed with value added tax and customs rates. It is much more reasonable than in Brazil. I sincerely pity you, hope your little trick works.

60 % tax. That's insane. I thought our 22 % was like the highest there is.
