For Sale:
Audio-GD SA-1.32 DAC 4x PCM1704UK DAC Great Condition

Will Ship To: US

For sale: 

Audio-GD SA-1.32 DAC. I am only selling it because I like it enough that I want to upgrade to the SA-2 DAC, which is basically the same unit but with a more hefty power supply, larger case, and more inputs. That or possibly another top end Audio-GD DAC. Therefore, I may be interested in a partial trade for an AGD SA-2, Reference 7.1,  Master 7, NFB-7.32....if you had one of those and wanted to "downgrade" to SA-1.32 plus some cash in your pocket, let's talk.

 

- This unit was originally a SA-1 unit with the TE8802 chip. It has been upgraded to the SA-1.32 spec with the USB-32 module plus TXCO clock upgrade from Audio-GD. (This cost about $100 with shipping from Audio-GD) The original TE8802 interface will be included in the sale. Coax inputs are handled by the excellent DIR9001 interface, which tops out at 24/96 capability - and sounds fantastic.

 

- This unit has 4 PCM1704 DAC chips, DSP-1 board which allows user adjustments of oversampling, dithering, etc, diamond differential analog output stage, and typical Audio-GD tough as nails build quality. Read the details here:   http://www.audio-gd.com/Pro/SA/SA1/SA1EN.htm

 

- If you look at the above link, it shows the SA-1 to come with three RCA outputs. This unit instead has two RCA outputs and one set ACCS outputs.

 

- This unit has previously been owned by two other respected Head-Fi'ers. The first owner I believe only had it for a week or two. I am the third owner but the unit has been taken very good care of, works flawlessly, low hours, and has no issues.

 

- This unit is recently discontinued by Audio-GD. When new the price was $909 plus approx $70 shipping. My asking price is $625, shipping included. Buyer pays paypal fees of 3.5%. Power cord, DSP jumpers, and TE8802 interface board included. US buyers/shipping only. 

 

- If you are planning on using this unit with an external converter, and will not use the upgraded USB input, I can take the USB32 interface out, and put the original TE8802 interface in, and take $50 off the price. This does not affect the coax inputs in any way.

Shout out for a great price on an excellent dac. Great tonality and musicality that is hard too find in the glutton of Sabre dacs flooding the market right now.

 

GLWS-I've had my eye on the SA-2 for a while based on my impressions of this dac and my old Ref 9.

Thanks Daniel for the comments! Yes, this is an excellent DAC. I like it so much that I just have to try the SA-2 - being the more refined "big brother" with the 3x r core transformers, etc. Probably very diminishing returns going up from the SA-1.

I'm possibly going to have the SA-2 and this DAC together in a couple weeks (if it doesn't sell by then) if you want any comparison notes...

Not 240v compatible by any chance? :)

Hi,
Audio-gd gear is usually available in two "versions", the 120v and 240v. This is the 120v version. It may be possible to replace the voltage module, but I'm not 100% sure...

If you were interested in checking into that, contact Kingwa at audio-gd, I'm sure he'll be happy to explain if it's possible, how easy or difficult a job, and the parts cost.
