For Sale:
[FS] Audio-gd SA-2 (PCM1704)

Will Ship To: CONUS

Hi,

 

I'm selling my two main DACs to fund THE one DAC that will pack the strengths of both these very good piece of gear.

 

Audio-gd SA-2

This DAC is part of the Audio-gd "Musical Series" and makes use of the PCM1704UK R2R DAC chips.

This DAC is less warm than the SA-1 or the SA-31 amp (more neutral) and has better extension to both ends. It is a TOTL DAC, so you get the usual pitch black background and grand SLAM and scale. The sound-stage is the biggest in the lineup (together with the Master-7), as per Kingwa's comparison.

 

I bought this DAC 1 month ago (12/7/13) and it is in excellent condition, save for the top plate which has some small scratches that are barely visible in daylight (the unit is black).

The unit has the $20 TCXO upgrade for the USB-32 input.

 

I paid $1,746.6 for the unit (list price is $1550 + $20 upgrade + shipping + fees). I'm asking for $1350 shipped (CONUS).

No love for this DAC that got positive feedback in the recent SoCal meet where it was in direct competition with the M7?

It does not beat it technically, but rather offer a softer / more delicate alternative for a more relaxed listening (or for people with punchy headphones).

 

I won't lie: I myself am looking for the M7, because I'm a heavy rocker :L3000:. The SA-2 is for the more laid-back moments :). Don't get me wrong: the SA-2 still has more SLAM than the Yulong DA8 ;)

Such a rare DAC. I think the SA-Series was Audio-Gd's most interesting product line, it just combined so many great features. Good luck with the sale!
