Super Wammer

I actually own this DAC and I don't know the seller at all. However from a purely audiophile perspective this is a special piece of kit . On pure redbook  or CD playback  it is superb and it has the versatility to play every format if you have an universal player-I do it with a cheap Sony Blu Ray in a system at cost is worth north of 20K. The DAC will convert every format including SACD it is a very special sounding thing and the main American magazine reviews reflect this.

I added a Node 2i  streamer to my system a while back and use the DAC obviously with that.  My honest opinion is that there is nothing at 2.5 k in terms of digital that will beat the Bryston in terms of versatility and sound reproduction.

This is indeed the nicest DAC I have heard that cost under 20k... Probably not that many have had the chance to audition it, especially in comparisons.

Really hope it finds a new home for someone to enjoy this absolute superb DAC.

For anyone in London, we can arrange an audition if seriously interested.
