    For Sale
    Here's my Audio-GD Reference 1 DAC up for sale. $75 shipped CONUS. It has the same DSP (V5) as the Reference 7.1 which I am currently using. It is in very good condition. Kept in my smoke-free home.
    I compared this very unit connected to the Phoenix against Antelope Audio's Zodiac Gold with Voltikus power supply. To the say the least, I was surprised that the Antelope did not out-perform the Ref1/Phoenix combo. So instead, I purchased the Ref 7.1/Master 6 combination. IMO, the Ref 1 executes at least 90% of the performance of the 7.1 . When I first compared the two DAC's, I was disappointed in the Ref 7.1. The Ref 1 was just as clear and natural sounding to me. It took a while for me to realize that the mids/upper mids were presented in a subtly better way with the 7.1.
    Feel free to PM me with any questions.
