Listing this here is probably akin to carrying coals to Newcastle, but maybe one of you PSAers is wishing to start a second system – and looking to take advantage of a terrific price on what you already know to be a terrific piece.
My problem, brought into clearer focus as I read through the Forum threads, is that my “senior ears” NEED the sharp-edged bite of lesser digital front-ends. My Cambridge Audio CDP pulls out enough detail (along with some nasties, too) that I feel involvement with my CD collection. The DS, for my ears, is a bit too soothing (sounds strange to actually write that, but I’m having to admit that my “normal” is not what it used to be).
As for my DS, it’s near-mint, with just the tiniest of blemishes on the top. Purchased in Feb. from the original owner, who bought it from a PSA dealer in October. Registered here in my name (and you know the warranty is transferrable). Factory box plus all its contents are here – PLUS an installed SR Red fuse ($90).
Of course, should this sell, I will immediately incur “seller’s remorse”, but I just cannot justify having significant funds tied up in gear that does not suit my (limited, unfortunately) listening abilities. I’ll pay shipping; you’ll deal with the 3% PayPal fee. Feel free to talk to me . . . and thanks.
PS: I’m located in Northern California
