The DSPro series was one of Theta’s highly successful and well regarded benchmark series that many other DAC manufacturers compare themselves with. The Basic may have been the line’s more affordable version but it was a major force to be reckon with. So well received was it that it later spawn into 3 versions culminating in the Basic IIIa. Originally priced at $2000 MSRP, it was almost never compared to similarly priced DAC. More commonly, it was always pitch against DACs that cost two, three, four and even five times as much. It was that good. And this unit here is as close to mint as any DSPro Basic could possibly come close to. We have the original box for it too!
For serious little money, this is one DAC we highly recommend to any audiophile system.
