How about some R2R old school goodness on the extreme cheap. This DAC is my lightly used one. I have another listed that is new old stock, never used. It is equipped with the venerable Burr Brown PCM 1704 24/96 chip. It's over sampling receiver drives the DAC at 96kHZ. This was a low jitter, high quality answer to DACs that were costing 2 to 3K at the time. Bel Canto had the price at the $1295 sweet spot and it was "stupid good" then and is "full retard" good at this price. I've compared this one  against some current DACs with chips from Wolfson (Rega Apollo R), AKM (Aune S16) and Ess Sabre (Gustard X12) and I still think this compact little guy has it going on. The people touting the R2R Dacs aren't just blowing smoke.
 
This one does not come with original box or packaging...just the DAC in excellent condition.

Price includes shipping to CONUS and paypal fees. Shipping outside CONUS will have to be negotiated.
