The newest version doesn't use the MSB chips, it has proprietary technology, so I'm a bit confused about what unit this is. This is a "new" unit of the older type?

Main listening (small home office):

Main setup: Surge protector +_iFi  AC iPurifiers >Isol-8 Mini sub Axis Power Conditioning+Isolation>QuietPC Low Noise Server>Roon (Audiolense DRC)>Stack Audio Link II>Kii Control>Kii Three >GIK Room Treatments.

Secondary Listening: Server with Audiolense RC>RPi4 or analog>Matrix Element i Streamer/DAC (XLR)+Schiit Freya>Kii Three .

Bedroom: SBTouch to Cambridge Soundworks Desktop Setup.
Living Room/Kitchen: RPi 3B+ running RoPieee to a pair of Morel Hogtalare. 

All absolute statements about audio are false :)

a unit cannot be "brand new" and "unused" if you opened it and used it to test some files.

 

That would be entirely accurate if we were talking about a virgin woman... I didn't have the chance to test the DAC in the shop because it was shipped to me. Simple as that.

It is not sealed but it is brand new, sitting in the box, unused. And do not forget the lifetime warranty. A simple phonecall to Rockna Electronics will answer all the questions . "Like new" is when the owner is taking good care of the equipment. Different story.

I'll let the people decide...

 

PS

And yes, it is a superb DAC. Too bad i need to sell it...

Curiosity-why do you buy such an expensive DAC and never use it?

My new home is smaller than the old one and because we kept the furniture, there is no room for the audio equipment. My rig is in the garage, in boxes. We were about to redecorate but meanwhile a serious medical problem occured in the family and i have to sell everything i can...

Where are you located?

I'm sorry, i didn't see your post.. Romania.

 

 

 

Do you know if there is an internal voltage switch that will allow the DAC to operates in 120V?

 

 

I don't know; you better send an email to Rockna.
