FS: Bel Canto DAC3.5VBmk2 + VBS1 modified - SOLD

Postby caine » Wed Mar 07, 2018 6:22 pm

Everthing below was bought brand new by myself. All in smoke/kid/animal free environment.

Some seriously good gear; Prefer to sell either the DAC by itself or together with the VBS1. VBS1 not available by itself.

Probably true. They have ceased the DAC1.7 and 3.7 as well the VBS1/LNS1. See what comes down the pipeline - was going to list the DAC and VBS1 on the wam at somepoint. Not keen on ebay with the 10% commision

firebottle said this about bel canto dacs on aos

so buy with great confidence this excellent dac

"I have heard this particular model and bought a Dac3 on the strength of it. Superb performer.

The VBS supply input needs 12V at about 1/2 amp, so a good 12V 1A linear psu is all you need to power it.

interesting another bel canto 3.5vbs plus black vbs1 just come on ebay at almost 1000 pounds more so this one is certainly a bargain and should be snapped up

Reads like a dealer. For me to put it on ebay. It would be above price * 14% (10% for ebay + 4% for paypal). I did get a tire kicker of hifi for sale come buy asking a stupid question. Will leave them up for sale and if anyone bites fair enough.

they really are a beautiful dac and trhe vbs1 is lovely , if i could afford another vbs1 i would get yours or angelfaces but spent too much . its a great shame the hi fi megastore no longer allows discussion like this thread as it all helps .

for the time being i am having a psu made for my dac and awaiting it now

hopefully yours will sell
