For Sale:
Cambridge Audio 840C SE / Balanced DAC (updated)

Will Ship To: Continental US

FS - Cambridge Audio 840C

 

I purchased the unit a few years ago from another headfier who bought it new. I've been out of the headfi loop for a while now so I can't compare it to anything recent. When I initially researched purchasing the CA840C or alternatives, it was typically discussed alongside the Benchmark DAC1 and Lavry DA10. Listed below are some specs and links to reviews.

 

 

Fully Balanced with XLR outputs

Single Ended RCA outputs

Twin Analog Devices AD1955 24 bit DACs

DSP upconversion to 24bit, 384kHz

2x Coax and 2x Optical Digital Inputs

1x Coax and 1x Optical Digital Output

(also see attached stock image of back panel -- forgot to take one when I originally put it up FS and am out of town atm)

The unit is a bit dusty with some minor cosmetic imperfections but is in otherwise very good external condition. That being said, the unit no longer plays CDs. The tray winds up when the mode is switched, but doesn't actually make an attempt to open. I really haven't the slightest idea what's up with it as I've always just used it as a standalone DAC with my PC (for which it performs marvelously).

 

The reason for the sale is because I don't listen to any of my desktop/home audio stuff anymore so it's all going out the door to be replaced by something cheaper and more portable. I'd like $700 OBO shipped via Money Order/Cashier's Check/Paypal (+fees).

 

 

I haven't bought/sold anything on here for a very long time (hence the 0 rating), but my old feedback thread can by found by a link in my signature.
