Modded balanced Zhaolu 2.5A + Zapfilter II - balanced and SE outputs - WITHDRAWN

Will Ship To: conus

 

This DAC started life as an "upgraded" D2.5A Zhaolu. I have compared 2.5A and 2.5C and preferred this version for its musicality. It was around $225 back then if recollection serves me right. From the DAC board, the Zhaolu provides balanced digital outs.

 

 

I then purchased the zapfilter II from LCAudio for about $275. this is the newer version with upgraded power resistors on the PSU. Zapfilter II is an analog output stage with discrete components providing both SE and balanced analog outputs.

Mods installed:

 

 

separate PSUs for DAC and analog stage

XLR and RCA outputs

original HP amp and output stage have been removed but are included in this sale

 

 

Breakdown:

 

 

Zhaolu D2.5A               - $225

Zapfilter II                    - $275

Switchcraft connectors  - $20

 

Many hours of planning and elbow grease to give it a professional and OEM looking end-product - $PRICELESS

 

 

Now on to the pics -

Why is this still around?  I guess the Zhaolu/Zapfilter isn't FOTM any longer.  Still, a hell of a buy for an awesome sounding DAC.
