[CLOSED]Metrum Flint NOS & JDS OL DACs

Trader History (10)
  1. MohawkUS
    For Sale
    Ship to:
    • Anywhere
    For your consideration:
    Metrum Flint NOS DAC $340
    JDS OL DAC USB Edition $70
    Or both for $400
    Shipping included to lower 48. Ask about international shipping.

    DACs come with original packaging/accessories.

    These two are complete opposites of one another, funny having them both here together. Hardly recognize my system switching between them.
    To further clarify, the OL is a tight detail focused sound whereas the Flint leads with warm density. Despite the OL being a more analytic sound it resolves less instrument timbre(color) than does the Flint; however the OL presents the more stable soundstage where the Flint can be flustered by some genres.


    On the topic of trades I'd be willing to trade for other DACs, I'm willing to throw in money for the right upgrade. I have a blind spot in my listening portfolio of a higher end AKM/Sabre DAC implementation, that's what I'm looking for.

    Z reviews.. worthless. Should have sent it to someone who can actually review. He can't even get the name of the product right in the youtube title.. guys a real tool and says stupid **** all the time. I found his tone control video hilarious. Comparing 2 (Subjective and LokI) analog tone controls to a digital tone control/sound card... not even remotely comparable. totally different products.. what an idiot. He dident have an amazon affiliate link for Subjective and Loki on hand is the real reason he prefered that pos miniDsp

    I ended up purchasing the Metrum Flint from Anjo (CEO Metrum Acoustics, great guy) and upgraded to the DAC TWO modules. In my opinion, now it sounds just like the Amethyst with classic house Metrum sound. At $350 no brainer for entry level Metrum NOS DAC. GLWS!

    Bump. I can do $330 shipped on the Flint.

    Regards, Eugene.
