For Sale:
Ayre QB-9 Async 192/24 USB DAC

Will Ship To: Continental U.S.

I am the only owner of this fine DAC, purchased new from Don Better Audio in October 2010 for $2750.  This is version 2 of the QB-9, which supports 192/24 files.  This is NOT the DSD-enabled version 3 that was released in July 2013, but this unit can be upgraded by Ayre to version 3 for a fee ($500 from what I have read).

 

I purchased a PS Audio PerfectWave DAC MKII in July 2012 and I haven't used the QB-9 since.  My only reason for switching to the PWD was because I needed more inputs than just USB.  I haven't noticed much difference in audio performance between the two DACs.

 

I'm asking $1250, shipping and PayPal fee included.  I never thought I'd be selling this so I stupidly threw away the original box.  :(  The original power cable is also MIA.  I upgraded to a Grover Huffman power cable which I'm now using on my PWD, but I think I recycled both the QB-9 and the PWD original cables when I was getting rid of unused cable clutter.  So all that's included is the DAC itself and the manual.

 

Feel free to contact me with any questions.  Thanks!

 

Edit: SOLD

LOL is it really a good deal?  I saw the other one listed here for $1800 and it hasn't had any takers for months, and since mine doesn't include the original box I figured I had to lower my price by quite a bit.

 

Anyway, I'm happy to give a good deal to someone that will use this.  :-)

I haven't seen one for this cheap ever. It seems to be in excellent condition and comes with everything but the power cord which is $10. Plus, the value comes from the performance - which is very good for the price.
