Audio-GD SA-1.32 DAC 4x PCM1704UK DAC Great Condition
Will Ship To: US
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.
