FS: Wadia 26 dac
For sale, my trusty Wadia 26 DAC. This is probably the piece of equipment that has been in my system the longuest. I have been using it with a Wadia 8 transport which I might be prepared to sell with the 26.
Basically the DAC section of the legendary Wadia 16 cd player. 32x oversampling. Outstanding stereo imaging, very transparent and detailed, deep and detailed bass, outstanding on voices. Still betters many modern dacs. Original European list price was approximately 3000 euros (I have been told 4000, although this is unverified).
Technically perfect, cosmetically has a few minute marks.
