I am doing this as a favor for a buddy of mine down in FLA. He treats his equipment with kidd gloves, so expect mint condition. Feel free to PM me, or contact Michael below.



I am selling my EMM Labs DAC2X. It is less than 6 months old and was purchased new from an authorized dealer. It is in mint condition and just barely broken in.
