Up for sale is my excellent Leckerton Audio UHA-6S (not the MKII) with optical input, and opamp AD8610. I'm selling because I am liquidating my portable audio setup to upgrade my desktop source.
I'm asking SALE PENDING, but I'm open to other offers. No trades, please.
From the Leckerton homepage:
High-performance Cirrus Logic DAC. The CS4398, Cirrus Logic’s flagship digital-to-analog converter, is a long-time favorite of audio enthusiasts due to its exceptional performance and audio quality.
True ground audio reference. With bipolar voltage rails at +/-6 VDC, there is no need for an output ground buffer which can cause additional output distortion and other audio artifacts. This also allows the UHA-6S to be used as a low-noise DAC/preamp into a line input such as an A/V receiver.
Socketed op-amps. For full customization, all op-amps in the UHA-6S are socketed and easily replaceable, including the DAC filter and the output driver stage. Single-channel op-amps are used throughout for minimal channel crosstalk.
Two-position gain control. Optimize performance for your headphones or earphones by choosing from two gain settings.
Automatic input selection. The input source is automatically selected based on the following priority: analog –> optical –> USB.
Advanced battery management. Use any high-power USB port or USB charger accessory to charge the UHA-6S. A rear panel switch disables charging, maximizing the battery life of your portable computer or tablet PC. The power indicator turns red when the battery is low, and an internal circuit disconnects the battery before discharging completely, maximizing the lifetime of the battery.
Plug and Play USB operation. The UHA-6S uses the standard USB audio drivers which are included in Windows and Mac operating systems.
How does it sound? Really great - clear, no grain, great soundstage, and enough power for my modded Fostex T50RP, and even drove my HE-500 to acceptable levels. It also got a great review from project86, among others..
Included is an optical cable with mini-adapter for combination headphone/optical out connections like my Macbook Pro, and the stock USB cable.
Free Shipping in CONUS by USPS Priority Mail, International Shipping and insurance is extra..
