This is a very nice piece of kit that sadly has not been widely distributed outside of Japan. I have used this unit for a little longer than a year and am selling only because I wanted to have balanced outputs for my Stax amplifiers. It is a fantastic all-in-one box with great input/output options, superb specs, solid build quality, and an excellent transparent headphone amp with Low/Normal gain that I have used with complete satisfaction with the D7000s, LCD2s, JH13Pros, and HD800s. The 32bit DAC chip is the same one employed by Esoteric in their D-05 DAC. Voltage operates 100-240V.
 
The unit operates flawlessly and is immaculate as far as I can tell, but to be safe, there may be some small blemish that a more discerning eye can find. Nothing significant for sure.
 
Price Japan lists these as $854 shipped to the US and I have found them on Ebay for $975 plus shipping.
 
I am asking $645 US plus shipping & fees. I will ship world wide via EMS with insurance and tracking. The DAC is packed and ready to go and would likely arrive within a week.
 
PRICE DROP: $585 US plus shipping & fees
 
Please PM me with any questions. I am not looking for trades and the price is firm.
 
Thanks!
