Audio-gd Reference 9 with 192khz / 24bit async USB and 4x PCM1704-UK High End DAC (aka Ref 9 Re 9 Ref9 Re9 )
Will Ship To: Anywhere
You guys sure know, what a Reference 9 DAC is. The sound quality is as good as the audio-gd DACs get. In particular, since the upgrade to the asynchronous USB with 192khz / 24bit - support is inside. It is the audio-gd TE8802 - module (replacing the other USB - module that was built in before).

- DSP1 Revision 5
- High speed diamond differential output circuit
- 1x Asynchronous USB input with up to 24bit / 192khz support
- Optional I2S input up to 24bit / 192khz (requires no soldering, but opening the cover and replacing the USB module)
- 4x spdif input up to 24bit / 96khz (Coaxial, BNC, AES, optical/Toslink)

- and more...
Tech info see here:
Be aware, that in addition to the descriptions on theses pages, the DAC being sold here has the asynchronous USB module inside, and it works up to 192khz / 24bit !
I am selling this over an online auction here:
You are welcome to bid!
I will post it almost everywhere. Ask me before bidding for the shipping charges.
Be aware that the currency is Swiss Francs CHF. You can convert the price at http://www.oanda.com/currency/converter/ . I prefer bank transfer, with all charges paid by the buyer (or SEPA payment from within the EU). Of course I will accept PayPal with other currencies converted in a way, that the actual price arrives to me. Buyer will have to pay additionally for PayPal charges.
The auction description is in German. I will not translate everything, as you guys here on head-fi know well, what audio-gd gear is like. This is simply an excellent sounding DAC with s/pdif input up to 24bit/96khz and asynchronous USB input up to 24bit/192khz, and RCA Chinch output (no XLR - but audiophile home hifi sound better over RCA anyway).
I sell it only because I don't have sufficient space for it anymore, and therefore I replaced it with a new, similar sounding PCM1704 -DAC, that is much smaller and features upnp-control and a remote control.
Only a few remarks with regards to the condition: This DAC is in excellent technical condition. And it is in very good optical condition. The only thing making it not exactly mint is, that it has little scratches on the top cover, originated by other hi-fi components put on top of it.
I will guarantee technically working condition at the moment, the DAC arrives at the buyer's location. In case something does technically not work as described, the buyer will have to tell me immediately after arrival of the item, and the item price (without shipping price) will be refunded as soon as the item arrives back to me in the same condition as shipped. Excluded are transportation damages. The item will be sent with an insurance according to its value. No other warranty is given, this is a private sale!
You can bid with confidence, I have excellent feed-back, 100% positive. Before the first bidding is on the auction, I will consider other serious offers outside the auction too.
