JF Digital HDM-03S Music Streamer, DAC, transport
Will Ship To: CONUS
Despite saying I'd never part with it, I'm posting for sale my former reference transport/music streamer - JF Digital HDM-03S. See my review HERE.
To sum it up - this thing is an exceptional music streamer. It has a very nicely done power supply, dual Wolfson WM8741 DACs, and a quality output stage with dual AD797 and quad OPA627. Optical and coax inputs for DAC mode, using the Wolfson WM8805 DIR. TPA6120 for a pretty good headphone out as well. Very versatile unit that can be used in a number of ways. Plays most files types including FLAC at up to 24/192, either by direct USB connection to a hard drive or else over a network.
There aren't many of these in the USA. In fact this may be the only one of its kind (I've seen a few other people with different JF Digital units though). I never thought I'd part with it but I've finally found something that I like better - Auraliti PK90 with NuForce LPS-1 power supply, feeding an Audiophilleo 1 with PurePower battery supply. Also my Resonessence Invicta DAC plays files from the integrated SD card reader, and I keep the Cambridge 840C for occasional disc playback, so I really have too many playback devices at the moment.
Asking $550 shipped (shipping will be kind of high because of the size and weight). Conus only, paypal only, no trades.
Even if all you do is use this as a DAC, it's a steal at that price. Or use it only as a transport. Or use it as an all in one player and headphone amp. Whatever your use, this device does a great job.
As an added incentive, I'll throw in a Reference Recordings HRx Sampler to get you started on Hi-Res playback. Some excellent music in 24-bit/176.4kHz with some of the highest bitrates I've ever seen.
EDIT: I just heard from JF Digital that the unit can have the main board sent back in to update the CPU and other things to the latest specs. This should make the menu navigation faster, UPnP streaming and loading times better, and even the touch screen more responsive. The whole thing is less than $200 including shipping. I'm considering keeping the device and doing the upgrade, but not decided yet.
