EMM Labs DAC2X - Mint Condition.

Recommended Posts

For Sale, A DAC that needs no introduction on this forum:


EMM Labs DAC2x in perfect condition. Owned a little over a year and has performed flawlessly. This dac has burned in beautifully over the last 6 months taking my listening session to a new level of enjoyment.


Price $9,950. If you meet my asking price, I will add my Moray James Powercord.


The 2012 Computer Audiophile Product of the Year Runner up... "This $15,500 DAC blew me away with its wonderful sonics. At the time of review it was the best DAC I'd ever heard in my system. The DAC2X isn't cheap, but I believe it's a good value. Putting a price on the best sound one has ever heard is tough. " Chris C. Founder of Computeraudiophile.

I will consider a 10% discount for CA members. 9K firm. Not including the Moray James Powercord though. They are hard to replace.


My kids are now older and I can safely experiment with Vinyl--I am heading in a different direction. My spouse said it is okay to play on both sides of the fence for awhile.

I am shooting myself in the foot but I am not a sales person. There are dealers who are selling this dac new for really great prices. Although I am not able to say who, because I actually do not know. I however was shocked at the price. Check with dealers before you want to buy mine used. My sale price now: $8000. You can decide if the price difference is worth a burned in perfectly functioning dac in perfect condition.


Research your dacs and prices. I want this piece to be appreciated.
