For Sale:
Wyred 4 Sound W4S DAC2 (Free shipping to continental US)

Will Ship To: US-48 sales

The Wyred 4 Sound DAC-2 has received almost universal praise. It's a bargain and an over-achiever, with the ESS Sabre DAC 9018 at its heart. The DAC2 sounds clean, warm, and non-fatiguing. The guys at W4S have figured out how to make digital sound like music.

I'm the second owner. Electronically and cosmetically, this DAC is in excellent condition. No scratches -- any imperfections you see in the pics are specks of dust caught by the high-res camera.

Comes with remote control, power cord, factory double-box, and manual. If you need it, the current USB driver is downloadable from W4S website.

US-48 sales only, and preference to head-fi members with a record of positive feedback. Paypal adds 3% unless gift. I can pick up the shipping to continental US. Sorry, no trade.
