As I've decided to go in a different direction with my computer based audio system, I have no use for this brand new Maverick Audio TubeMagic D1 Plus DAC. I also purchased via eBay for $65 one 2C51 396A Western Electric WE 1953 NOS tube and a tube of DeOxit contact enhancer. Everything is included in this sale, as well as the upgraded tube from Maverick (GE5670W tube). All in, this cost me over $340. I am looking for $250 plus shipping, which should be approx. $20 within the CONUS.
I am happy to ship internationally as long as the buyer picks up the additional shipping.
As always, PP fees are on the buyer unless sent as gift. Buyer's decision, of course.
As for the DAC itself, the tube really does bring a nice touch of warmth to the audio. Remember though, that the tube is part of the DAC, not the headphone amplifier, so you could, if so desired, run the DAC into a tube amp for additional "tubey" sweetness.
This DAC was purchased by me last month and has less than 30 hours on it. I have not changed the tube yet, so it is NOS still in box from 1953. Pretty cool as everything back then was typed on a typewriter. I am also including the DeOxit for the tube pins. This can also be used on RCA jacks as well.
Thanks for looking and please let me know if you have any questions. For more information, I encourage those not familiar with this DAC to Google Maverick TubeDAC D1.
PLEASE NOTE: As I am bringing this DAC to the NYC meet, I won't be able to ship until the 21st. In light of this, I am happy to hold the DAC for any interested party until then.
