For sale is a used V-DAC II plus dedicated Pangea Audio power supply from Audio Advisor. Not sure if it's a LPS, and guessing maybe not since they didn't market it as such. Anyway, a classic DAC from the recent past. To my ear, it's easily competitive with Schiit DACs in this price range. Has co-axial, optical and USB inputs, and it’s a 24bit/192kHz asynchronous USB design. Here are some links about it: Musical Fidelity | V-DACII DAC Musical Fidelity V-DAC II D/A processor | Stereophile.com Retail was $480 ($380 + $100). Asking US$200.00 PayPal only and no trades, please. Buyer to pay shipping. I'll cover the PP fee. I don't sell a lot, but I have all positive feedback under the same username at Head-fi dot org.
Hello everyone at the forum, I am new at the forum and am kindly asking for your help (no problems actually, everything is working, I would just like to understand better how stuff works): Digital part of my music system consists of iMac and Musical Fidelity V-DACII connected via USB cable. My entire music collection is in 16/44,1 format. I play music through iTunes. My Audio MIDI Setup for V-DACII shows "44,100 KHz, 2ch-24Bits" (bits are locked but I can change sample rate). V-DACII is upsampling DAC, which means that every signal is converted to 24/192. My questions for here described setup are: 1. Does iTunes or CoreAudio upsample my 16/44,1 music files to 24/44,1 as Audio MIDI Setup shows? 2. In which format (bits/samplerate) is the audio being sent to V-DACII? 3. What is better solution: to use "44.100" or "96.000" setting in Audio Midi Setup since either will be converted to 192.000 in DAC? In first case, the sample rate of the original file is preserved until it reaches DAC. 4. Audio MIDI Setup says that Clock is "default". I know that USB on V-DAC is asynchronous but which clock is then used in the audio stream? I am a bit confused about this. Thank you for reading my first post and for kind support.
