FS: Museatex Idat-44 Mobile with latest upgrades from John Wright AND Blackgates
Will Ship To: Anywhere
Due to several factors (wanting native usb, high-res compatibility, convenience), I am selling my Museatex Idat-44m. It's a very special DAC, as it's a version of the Idat-44 made for car audio, and it runs on a 12V SLA car battery, which is the cleanest power source available. Depending on the current draw of a device, battery power can be a bottleneck for dynamics, or no. The Idat44m draws little current and it sounds very special and with completely black background thanks to it, and its dynamics are unreinstrained. A Bidat, which draws much more power, by contrast, would lose dynamics in such configuration. John Wright himself uses his Idat44 with a battery.
Unlike most units upgraded after end 2009 (when Blackgate capacitors went out of production), this Idat-44 Mobile retains Blackgates capacitors from a former upgrade, and I expressedly asked John Wright to retain them in order to make the best possible combo.
This basically merges the best of two worlds, since part of the Museatex magic was coming from the midrange produced by the Blackgates, while the latest upgrades, were aiming to make as pure signal path possible, use an upgraded clock (it has a huge one) and so on.
Asking 1050 Euros shipped in Europe.
Thanks for looking
