Complete Buffalo III DAC and all accessories-Working DAC


Recommended Posts

Complete Buffalo kit, setup and running, just needs a nice box.
This DAC will blow your socks off,it uses the Sabre DAC found in high
end equipment. MCINTOSH MCD500 Reference player. I have completely
switched to vinyl and have lost interest in digital. The DAC is complete
and currently useable in its current state but could use a custom
enclosure. I have not heard anything close to this DAC south of $3000.
These are difficult to purchase and have a waiting list.
Priced to sell, grab it before its gone, you cant purchase one at the
moment since they are back ordered.
