This is one of our perennial favorites when choosing a DAC to test out a system. It can literally transform a sub-$500 CD player to sound like a $1500 (if not more) CD player when taking its digital output and running it through the A3.24 DAC. There is an improved soundstage, better detail retrieval and a more “lively” step to the music. At its original $1200 MSRP, it was an awesome value proposition to enhance the sound of your system. Simple push button on the rear allows switching between 96KHz and 192KHz which was very convenient when you want to upsample.
Cosmetically, the unit looks really good. A small knick on the faceplate (you can see it in the picture) is the only “major” blemish on an otherwise well taken care off unit. Manual is available online. We will securely pack this for safe shipping.
