For Sale:
Metric Halo ULN-2 Expanded DAC/mic pre/etc. (Massive price drop)

Will Ship To: Anywhere

One of the most famous and powerful pieces of pro audio hardware out there, as well as a great-sounding DAC.

 

If you have a Mac with Firewire, it is one of the best and most natural-sounding DACs I've owned. 

 

It is pre-programmed to be used as a DAC via Firewire or the AES or S/PDIF inputs and I will include the files required so that the saved setting states are loaded up in the software. You can switch to one of the saved setting states on the front panel.

 

The previous owner stated that there were issues with the S/PDIF RCA input and it doesn't appear to work. However, the AES/EBU input works fine and can be used with an S/PDIF adaptor, such as one from Neutrik (not included).

 

Also included (not pictured): 

RCA to XLR adaptors, correctly wired for the mic inputs (+ and - connected to pin 2 and ground respectively).

TRS to XLR adaptors for the main or monitor outputs (it can be used as a pre-amp).

XLR to TRS adaptors for the inputs. Though not strictly necessary the TRS input in the combo jacks I don't think uses the mic pre.

TRS to RCA adaptors for the mic inputs.

The 9V power brick (plugs into the XLR power input).

A Firewire 400 cable.

A 5m (IIRC) FW800 to FW400 cable.

 

The condition is otherwise excellent, with a couple of paint chips on the top edges, shown in the pictures.

What power supply does this come with mate? I'm currently in the market for the expanded version but this may do ok. Also is this located in Japan or Aus?

I'm in Japan. The PSU is a power brick that plugs into the 4-pin XLR power input on the back.

 

This is the expanded version by the way (it has the DSP card). I'll update the title to show that.

Can you update the ordinary ULN-2 with a DSP card. Did not know that.

Yup. Details on their web site, including a video.
