I am looking for a used cheap Dac in the range of Rs.5-6k.
 

BUYING, SELLING or TRADING indicates your automatic and mandatory acceptance of HiFiVISION.COM Trading Rules and Guidelines!


Do not blindly trust every seller or buyer! Protect yourself by following the below safe trading tips.

Safety Tips

For Buyers

  1. Always meet the seller at a safe location and inspect the item before purchasing. Following this one rule will help you avoid most scams.
  2. Watch out for unrealistic offers. If it appears too good to be true, it probably is. Unrealistic offers are used to motivate purchasers to make hasty decisions.
  3. Always verify the seller's credentials. Ask the seller to provide a photo ID and proof of address.
  4. Ensure that the product you are buying is not stolen or fake. Always ask for a purchase invoice.
  5. The best way to transact is to collect the item and pay at the same time. Never transfer funds or use a debit/credit/atm card to pay someone you do not know before collecting an item.
  6. Ask for clear information on condition of the item, price, payment and delivery method.
  7. Use only those payment methods that you trust and are familiar with. Never give out your financial information.
  8. It is recommended to purchase items directly from the seller.
  9. Always test the functioning of the item before purchase.
  10. Do your research on comparative prices for the product.

For Sellers

  1. Try to take the full payment at the time of the delivery. Remember to use a safe location to meet.
  2. Watch out for fake currency and money orders. Be aware that banks will not honour fake currency/money order and will hold you responsible for it.
  3. Verify the buyer’s credentials if necessary.
  4. Ensure that your product meets the features you list in your ad to avoid any misunderstanding with the buyer.
  5. It is your responsibility to prove that the product you are selling is genuine and not stolen by providing the necessary proof of purchase.
  6. Do not share your financial information except the one required for payment.

I ordered Fiio D03 last night and Amazon delivered it this morning.

Very easy to install, occupies very little space in my music trolley. It is attached to my media player via optical cable.

I am listening to all kinds of music files (MP3, FLAC, HD) and the sound quality is astonishing, given its price at Rs.1790.

Another advantage is that it has 2 sets of line outs (RCA and 3.5mm). Very few Dacs offer this. This is helpful as I have connected RCA outputs to the amplifier via RCA cables while the 3.5mm output is connected to Magni 3. No need to frequently change cables in my set-up.

Is it the best/perfect Dac? At this price, absolutely.

At Rs.20000 ($300), yes. I have used Musical Fidelity, Cambridge Audio, Asus Essence, and many more Dacs previously so I can make such a statement with some authority.

Of course, there are many excellent Dacs (but expensive) that would outperform this by a margin of 2-5 percent or perhaps more. But for me, I am not exploring such Dacs as the rest of my music system is not the best/perfect. I have Musical Fidelity A3.2 integrated amplifier and Cadence speakers.

I am fully satisfied with this little Dac.

Thanks Mash for introducing this product to me.

Highly Recommended!
