This is one of the finest DAC on the market. It may not be “state of the art” but it will not hesitate to run rings around other DACs costing many times more. We had this compared with our in-house Esoteric D-03 DAC ($13,000 MSRP) and although the difference is marginal, we were slightly more “moved” with the dCS presentation than the Esoteric. Both the Esoteric and dCS are very good but the dCS had a slightly smoother sound. Mid-range and bass had a more rounded end while the Esoteric was tighter and sharper. Either unit is World Class and will elevate any system to new highs. The Debussy can also be used as a digital preamp through its variable output.
The Debussy you see here is one owner owned from NEW. We have the original remote and will securely pack it for safe shipping. Cosmetically, it looks really good. Just the usual minor scuff marks common with use.
