For Sale Bel Canto VBS

Postby angelface » Wed Nov 08, 2017 11:36 am

I have the following available for sale:

SOLD DAC3VB in silver. This version has USB connection for computer plus optical, coaxial and XLR digital inputs. It has a volume control that can be bypassed. It requires a power supply.

SOLD Pre3VB in silver. XLR and RCA inputs with home cinema by-pass. Our resident pre-amp expert (hifinut) rates this pre very highly. I am only selling as my MF Classic pre suits better the kind of music I listen to. It requires a power supply.

I also have a power supply (VBS)

Prices in pounds (postage depending on location, all offers considered)

SOLD DAC3VB 500 on its own
with ex-dem LNS(single power supply) 700

VBS1 500 on its own

SOLD Pre3VB 650 on its own
with LNS 900
with VBS 1250
with VBL 1650

ah you are very kind angelface !! i do rate the pre3vb highly and its very good vfm and has over 200 steps which makes for precise vol control

i got a bit confused in your pricing , is it possible to make it a bit clearer . probably just me being thick

Pre3VB sold subject to payment but buyer already has power supply so LNS and VBS are available with DAC.

Over Christmas visited my friend Steve(a member here incidently) who has recently purchased a pair of Mono X to add to his CDi and 8vs2 with Totem Arro speakers.

Just for fun I connected his CDi to the DAC3VB with LNS power supply and bypassed the 8vs2.

So excellent DAC in CDi replaced by Bel Canto DAC that is older.
Mediocre pre in 8vs2 replaced by digital pre in Bel Canto DAC.

So was it better? Light and day better! We listened to Gregory Porter, Diana Krall and the XX (not my choice of music except the last one!). The music really opened up and was so much clearer than when we returned to the 8vs2.

To be honest I am struggling to understand why but I thought this might be interesting for potential puchasers..
