    Hi there, looking to sell my JDS Element amp/dac! Perfect condition, comes with all original accessories though the USB cable has some oxidation. Bought in Sept 2015 but it just sat on my desk for pretty much all this time which is why I'm thinking of getting rid of it. Price (negotiable) ...

    (SOLD) JDS Labs OL Dac (B-Stock)

    EDIT; SOLD I'm selling an OL Dac I bought from JDS Labs late last summer. The quirk about this unit is that it's backwards and upside down. What this means is: the front and back are flipped from each other, so when the front is right-side-up, the back will be upside down. Now, since you won't...

    Purchased this Dec 20, 2016 - so definitely has plenty of the transferable warranty left. Replaced it with a Woo Audio WA7, so it's not getting as much playtime as it deserves. My loss is your gain! It's b-stock, which I know is scary to some people, but it looks like what that means is that...

    Selling my headphone amp. I know longer have any headphones, so it's just been sitting. I purchased it brand new from JDS in April 2016. So it's just over a year old, but was only used sparingly. Works flawlessly, and no battery issues. Comes with the box and charging cables. $125 shipped in the US

    JDS Labs EL / OL DAC Owners (AK4490EQ DAC's with filter switch)

    It seems these are heavily underappreciated DAC's, I own both. These are 2 pieces of equipment I bought straight after reviewing, the OL DAC is used for my main computer setup, and the EL DAC as the DAC for my Hifi system. I have soldered the DIP switches to my OL DAC, and have another DIP...
