I am upgrading to a different source.

Price for the DAC 2.0 = 550 shipped CONUS...worldwide shipping extra.

hit me with offers and we will go from there..Lowball offers will be ignored.

To give an idea of what this thing goes for..a modded SOnic Frontiers Trans DAC sold for 450 a couple of months ago. I believe my DAC has a lot more upgrades over it. You would be hard pressed to find a better digital source under 1000$.

The PMD100 filter, PCM1702-K DACs, Nichicon Muse lytic caps, Ceramic caps, Caddock resistors for the analog section, Multicap PPFMX for the filter and I/V capacitors, upgraded opamps for the buffer and I/V with appropriate bypass and decoupling caps.


The DAC 2.0's optical and RCA inputs have been bypassed and is fixed to the 75ohm BNC input.

I will add an RCA to BNC adapter.

here are some pics..First one is before I did the mods.

It can be wired for 230 volts AC yes.

Today I added a bunch of SMD MLCC decoupling caps on the digital receiver CS8412 and PMD100 digital filter power supply pins. There was noticeable improvement in the details and high frequencies.

I am upgrading to an Assemblage DAC 2.6 just so for those who are curious want to know. The two are quite similar in implementation.
