  1. Chord DAVE - silver


    Chord DAVE in silver finish. Excellent condition and works flawlessly. Includes remote and all the original packing materials. State of the art DAC that competes with other DACs at multiples of the price. Cost for shipping and insurance in contiguous United States will be a flat rate of $125. Please add 3% for PayPal.

     

    Includes original packaging and remote.
     

    Will consider other forms of payment that do not include fees (cash, check, money order, Zelle).

  2. High Fidelity Cables RCA Adapters (two pair)


    Asking price includes free shipping to Continental 48 and no PayPal fees. Two pairs (four individual adapters). Retail for $600. These work great -- they fit between your RCA interconnect/cable and the RCA socket on your amp/preamp/phono stage/etc. Give the magnets a few days to magnetize your system and you will hear a positive difference. Asking $275 for both pairs or $150 for a single pair.

  3. Audiowise OPTO DX Optical Isolation Cable System plus Pilot Pro Batteries plus Ghent DC Cables


    Asking price includes free shipping to Continental 48 and no PayPal fees. This is the best cable system you can have between M Scaler and a DAC with dual BNC inputs (e.g., Chord TT2 or Chord DAVE). Includes two optical cables (1.5 meters) and four BNC cables (.3 meters). I paid $787 for the OPTO DX system in 2019 and another $200 for two PowerAdd Pilot Pro2 batteries to provide power to the OPTO DX terminals. You will need two DC cables to connect the batteries to the terminals. I paid $150 for two high quality Ghent DC-GAC4 cables. Asking price includes all of these items in great condition.

    Asking price includes free shipping to Continental 48 and no PayPal fees. Works great and in great condition. Original box. Bought new in 2019. This supply includes an upgraded Furutech fuse and upgraded Furutech AC inlet. It also includes a Farad Level 2 DC power cable with 5.5/2.1 connector. I paid 771 Euros for this power supply and cable in 2019.


     

  5. Uptone Audio ISO Regen plus USPCB plus custom DC cable


    Asking price includes free shipping to Continental 48 and PayPal fees. Custom DC cable is 3 inches and is a high quality cable with 2.1mm connectors on both ends fabricated by Barrows (frequent contributor to AudiophileStyle). This is the cable I used to connect the ISO Regen to a power supply. Everything works great and is in great condition.

  7. Phasure Blaxius^2 BNC/RCA 75 ohm cables (1.2 meters)


    PRICE REDUCTION. I will sell these for $125 each or $220 for both. Asking price includes free shipping to Continental 48 and PayPal fees. Bought new in 2019 for about $800 including shipping from Holland. This pair also includes BNC to RCA adapters. Works great, barely used, and in great condition. More information here:  https://stordiau.com/products/blaxius-2-75-ohm-interlink-single. Given the natural bend in the cables, you will need to leave space behind your components to account for the bend. Original instructions from Phasure included.

  8. SOtM tX-USBultra


    PRICE REDUCTION TO $500. Asking price includes free shipping to Continental 48 and PayPal fees. This is a stock SOtM tX-USBultra bought new three years ago. This is one of the more transformative pieces of gear I have had over the last 3-4 years. Works perfectly. It comes with a switch mode charger but you will want to upgrade the power source for best results. It will accept 6.5v to 9v from a power supply. Original box. 


     

  9. Chord M Scaler


    Asking price includes free shipping to Continental 48 and PayPal fees. Original double box with all original cables and accessories. Works great and in great condition. Bought new in 2019. Will include a Shunyata Venom 14 power cord with C7 connector that fits the M Scaler ($95 when new and an upgrade over the stock power cord).

     

    I also have a separate listing for an OPTO DX Optical Isolation Cable System with Pilot Pro batteries and Ghent DC cables. This is the best cable system you can have between M Scaler and DAC with dual BNC inputs (e.g., Chord TT2 or Chord DAVE). Two optical cables are 1.5 meters each and four BNC cables are .3 meters each. I paid $787 for the OPTO DX system in 2019 and another $200 for two PowerAdd Pilot Pro2 batteries to provide power to the OPTO DX terminals. You will need two DC cables to connect the batteries to the OPTO DX terminals. I paid $150 for two Ghent DC-GAC4 DC cables (.5 meter). I have listed this entire package for $600, but if you buy the M Scaler, I will sell the OPTO DX cable system with batteries and DC cables for an additional $500 (and free shipping and no PayPal fees).

    I just got back from Emanuel Ax, Leonidas Kavakos and Yo-yo Ma at the CSO.  Beethoven trios.  Those guys were having a great time and the music was alive and upbeat.  It's always great hearing music played with enthusiasm and energy.  Yuja was like that as well.  She took various compositions and blended them together.  Extremely impressive, energetic, talented and easy on the eyes.

    Kavakos is probably the least known of the trio you saw, but he is a truly amazing violinist, having seen him twice in recital in Seattle. And Wang is always fun -- between her musicality, technique, and stage presence.

    So, you have a bad switch?

    Too early to say. I haven't really attempted to get at the root of the problem yet. It may be fine and the problem may simply have been a loose connection that could be easily dealt with.

     

    This is a switch that was clocked (from my sMS-200 Ultra) by a short, 12 inch cable from DigiKey that cost $20. I never really liked the connectors on these cables and it always felt a bit precarious. Also, the fact that I was running two stiff, unwieldy SOtM dBL-Cat7 ethernet cables in and out of the lightweight switch made for a more precarious situation. I'm curious if anyone else has had problems with their SOtM-modified switch?
