Possible Dac bargain?

Postby The Far North » Sun Apr 16, 2017 6:24 pm

Guildford Audio are describing this is a Dac XP+, in which case it would be a bargain at £720. They only have the 1 photo of the front, and I'm not sure if the writing on the front just says XP. Maybe it has been upgraded inbetween? :-\

Might well be the case Phil, but a heads-up for anyone who wants to enquire anyway. Their prices for the Mono-X amps and PSX-Rs aren't cheap, so that tends to suggest they may have got the DAC wrong.

Note that the 'DACXP' on the front doesn't prove either way - my DACXP Signature still only says 'DACXP' on the front.
