    Alright, I need to let my Theta Gen V go.

    This DAC is not in the best of shapes (pics soon) and it has the buggy firmware that makes 48kHz contents sound like digital noise. It is a well known issue that impacted quite a few units...
    Also, I replaced one PCM63 DAC chips when I got it, to fix an obvious balance problem.
    And, one of the transformers hums a bit.

    The inputs are RCA, BNC (S/PDIF) and XLR (AES). It has single ended and balanced outputs.

    If you can look past the age, the replaced DAC chip and the 44.1kHz only capability, then you're in for a treat! This DAC can produce some of the best music, even by today's standard. It's a warmer / fuller take on Schiit's new offering, with a performance that sits between the Gumby and Yggy.

    Terms
    Asking for $600 net to me (buyer pays for shipping, or pick up in LA area).

    I had this unit on extended loaner. Can confirm - it is the real deal.

    Beautifully smooth, warm, and punchy sound, with great technicalities too. I could live with this DAC forever.
