FS (stands for FIRE SALE!): Ultimate Audeze - Complete Turnkey System!
Will Ship To: US and Canada ONLY!
I truly hate to do this, but I am in dire need of cash. I am selling my complete system and it's just about the ultimate, complete headphone system! This is only being sold as a complete set, so please don't ask me to break this up. If you're looking for a complete set, here it is!
This system is the culmination of almost of year of research and reading reviews and all the work paid off! Everything in this set was purchased brand new by me less than a year ago except for the DAC, which was a demo. Here's what's included:
Audeze LCD--2v2 Headphones -
Near mint condition, with about 500 hours. Nicely broken in! I need not tell you that these headphones are second to none! 'Nuff Said! Comes with a set of 5' custom Cardas/Charleston Cable Company cables worth $300 plus the unused OEM cables, the travel case and original frequency response curve from Audeze. Purchased new from Moon Audio.
Burson Audio HA-160 Headphone Amplifier -
Also near mint, with about 500 hours. There's a reason why professional audio reviewers keep coming back with the Burson/Audeze combo - the sound of these headphones with the Burson Amp is incomparable! I've never in my life heard a truer, more transparent representation of the music I've loved for so long! Astounding! Comes with original box as received new from Moon Audio.
PS Audio Digital Link III Reference DAC -
Purchased as a demo from a reseller in Dallas, TX. Also near mint condition and no indication that it isn't brand new! Has about 750 hours. Sounds fantastic! The PS Audio DLIII is the Benchmark killer! There might be some newer DACs out there these days, but this reference class DLIII can hold it's own against just about anything. No Cullen mods on this DAC.
Cambridge Audio ID-100 Bit-perfect iPod / iPad / iPhone Dock -
Forget Wadia! That's overpriced, yesterday's news and isn't even in the same ballpark as the Cambridge Audio ID-100. This little dock is as high in build quality as it is in sound quality! Has Digital AES/SBU XLR, USB, TOSLINK and S/PDIF output and extracts Bit-Perfect audio from your Apple device by bypassing the cruddy internal DAC and feeds it straight into the incomparable PS Audio DLIII. Comes with the S/PDIF digital cable I've been using with it, plus a quality, Pangea Audio USB cable if you prefer to use that. Also comes with all the dock "pads" for various Apple sources, a nice metal remote that works with your Apple devices and the original box and papers. Purchased new from Amazon.
160GB Black iPod Classic -
Like new Black 160GB iPod Classic with 45GB disk space remaining. There are upwards of 15,000 files on this iPod which will be included with this sale. In addition, a separate 2.5" portable HDD will be included with the iPod to the buyer of this system will duplicates of all files, so they can be imported into your main library. Only about 3% of the files on the iPod will be unusable, per Apple licensing agreements.
Everything else -
Included with this turnkey setup are two 1.5m Pangea Audio AC Power Cables and a set of custom Cardas/Charleston Cable Co. RCA Interconnects to connect the DAC to the AMP. Also the Pangea USB cable, a Custom TOSLINK Cable (if I can find it) and an S/PDIF cable to go from the ID-100 to the DLIII. And don't forget the custom Cardas/Charleston Cable Co. Audeze headphone cables!
I think you'll spend a lot of time combing through classifieds to find another deal like this! If you're thinking about putting the ultimate headphone system together and don't want to spend the almost $3,600 I have into this system, it's time to take advantage of my situation. This is a FIRE SALE if ever there was one!
