Enjoy.  I have had mine since the end of October and the DAC is great.  However, I still prefer my PWD but it costed substantially more.  It is especially seductive when used with a tube headphone amplifier.

Hi guys can someone recommend where to buy the pure dac from. i'm in Australia and i contacted BMC directly and was disappointed that their price was way more expensive than the price quoted on the web. Also mentioned that i was interested in demoing the unit to fellow hifi'ers that maybe interested and to possibly look at being a dealer but they didn't seem to change the higher price they quoted me. Regards Leon.

I recall A2A being a distributor for BMC gear?

Unless you can wait within a few months when I'll be ordering one?

They're not. Well, at least not listed on the online store.

Glad to hear you might order one DefQon.

I hooked up my ageing Lambda Pro to the PureDac in December.

What a difference! I got a lot more of the lower-end body, weight and texture I like while still keeping all the higher up detail and staging. It easily betters my Beyer T1.

Quite a lesson there. I guess I was too quick to dismiss the Lambda in the past because of the DACs I was using!

These folks listed as the Australian distributor on the BMC website: http://www.nationalaudiogroup.com.au.

There is a video from Moon Audio with this as a high-end recommended amp along with three others.  It is huge!  I had no idea it was that big.  Looks good to me.

In case anyone was waiting for it (I think a few people were), here is my review of the PureDAC - sorry for the delay!

In summary - a fantastic DAC, and more importantly, an exceptional all-in-one for driving most headphones directly. One of my top recommendations from now on.

Excellent John, thanks. Lot of background information I didn't know and valuable comparative information with other dacs, as usual. Timbral accuracy and resolution - yes!! Just what I hear - my ears are tuned for piano...

I took my PureDAC out of my office and into my speaker system recently - superb. What I didn't do was feed the power amp balanced. Will now try this beerchug.gif

Thanks!

 

And yes, it's definitely worth grabbing some XLR cables and giving it a try.

I look forward to comments on the balanced performance.

I agree the DAC is great as I have it connected into my system paired against a PWD MKII and it holds its own very well.  I run it balance into a RSA Apache.  The PWD MKII is also running balance into the Apache.  On the headphone amplifier side, I think it is a very good headphone amplifier but I prefer my RSA Apache or even the RSA Raptor to the PureDac's headphone amplifier.
