This is a near-mint unit from the original Alpha DAC series (there is a Series 2 now. Silver front panel, remote, original packaging and user manual. Still an outstanding DAC, unusually handsome (IMO) with an exceptional volume control built in so you can drive your amp(s) directly. And one of the best remote controls ever. Note that this DAC does not have a USB input (none of the Berkeley DACs do).
Original cost: $4,995. Asking $1,680.
Is this the DAC that we heard at the DAC shootout earlier this year? If so, it’s a very fine sounding piece even if it’s not the very latest version! I think you were using a Audiophilleo2 USB to S/PDIF converter with it. Correct?
