Up for sale is a truly great sounding all in one unit (dac/preamp/headamp) built like a thank and most definitely high end on all levels.
The dac section of the Reference 10.32 sports four (4) legendary multibit PCM 1704UK chips in dual mono configuration. The PCM 1704UK are considered by many as the most analog and musical sounding chips ever built. I can attest of this as I have sold my beloved NAD M51 and Bryston BHA-1 after I heard the Reference 10.32. I truly enjoyed it immensely for nearly the last two years. I have decided to upgrade to separates with an Audio gd Master 9 and a Bryston BDA-3. I will gain maybe only about 10% in performance for a lot more money but hey, that is the evolution and craziness of this hobby.
The preamp and headamp sections are absolutely top notch and very powerful and ultra clean sounding. The unit is overbuilt with massive power supplies (see pictures) and weight over 30 lbs. Really serious audiophile machine here that can drive any headphones with ease.
The Reference 10.32 has been upgraded with the current best sounding USB card of the industry, the Amanero 384 combo. The Reference 10.32 can play up to 32/384 from the USB input as I used to feed it from my Mac Mini with Audirvana. You can also easily replaced the USB module by a I2S HDMI (LVDS) module that will also came with the 10.32. You have the option. I also upgraded to the last V7 firmware from Audio gd. So the 10.32 is basically a Master 11. I will also include some jumpers to tailored the sound to your preference inside the unit. Personnaly, I found the NOS mode as the best sounding mode and it is currently set up this way. But you can also choose 2X, 4X or 8X OS.
Finally, there is still about six (6) years of warranty left. But I really doubt it will be used anyway. Some light scratches and dent barely visible.
Shipping and PayPal fees will be taking care by the buyer.
