HI

Here is the first item of my setup for sale
(the entire setup is for sale - however in a particular order )

Following is my NOS dac from Peter daniel

My Offer price : Rs 12000 + shipping
Legititmate offers will be considered
Lowballs will be ignored

Bought price : 425 USD on a bread board

Built , soldered and assembled by peter himself on a maple wood board.
I have however taken the liberty of housing the dac in an all aluminium cabinet
with care taken that the power cable is well sheilded
The volume control knob serves no purpose

The dac has a single Co axial ( SPDIF) input and standard RCA outputs

Anyone on DIYaudio wold know Mr Peter daniel who is renowned for his work with the TDA 1543 based DAC and his work on chip amps and gainclones

The dac is extremely fluid and highly organic like most NOS dacs and has served me well for a couple years and held its own against the multiple DAcs i have owned over the years including a benchmark and a buffalo 1

The fully assembled dac ( on a breadboard ) initially sold for 375 USD odd ( plus international shipping and taxes etc which are about 80$ USD odd )
the Caps are "black gates"

internal Pictures i have uploaded are from peters gallery and since the entire dac was assembled soldered and built and tested buy peter himself the dac on offer is the same
However i will add pics of the inards in case someone is really intrested

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.

Hi all

this dac sale has been put on hold

the upgraded dac that i have/in the process of acquiring is giving me setup issues ( handshake with my PC )
i have contacted the company and they are sending/finding me a solution

and till it is resolved i am sorry my sale has to be postponed

i am truly sorry to have jumped the GUN on this

once again thanks to all who showed interest and inquired and apologies to them as well
They will be contacted once my handshake is resolved
