SOLD Dared MP5 is combo DAC, tube headamp and 13 watts/per side tube speaker amp. Bought it out of curiousity for $350 new. To be blunt, DAC is comparable to M-Audio 192 card, not better but not worse. Head amp is adequate, probably would benefit from tube rolling, but only very minimal buzz/hum, not audible at even high listening levels, and euphonic; but only decent, not great, resolution and detail with Senn 650's.

Speaker amp actually way above average (I used it only to drive small Polk bookshelves on my desk as computer monitors - did excellent job, with surprisingly adequate power). Cosmetically beautiful, with gorgeous design. Comes with original packaging, white gloves, manual, etc.

$250, firm, plus shipping from area code 20814.

(My opinion: this is a great bargain if you use all three of its functions, or even the DAC and speaker functions. The head amp is decent value for the price, but not more. Tube rolling may have substantial effect on head amp, as components and build quality are otherwise excellent.)
