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!
