** The previous sale fell through. However, I recently had knee replacement surgery, so I am temporarily closing this listing. ** LiTe Audio DAC-62, aka Pacific Valve DAC-62. This is a DAC-60 tube DAC that has been highly modified by Pacific Valve. The DAC chips are a pair of the highly acclaimed PCM 1704U-K's and it takes 6922/6DJ8 type tubes. This is the predecessor to the Pacific Valve Briggatta and is identical, except it does not have a USB input. It has one coax and one optical input, with one set of single ended RCA outputs. If you're a tube roller you will really like this unit, there are distinctly audible differences when swapping tubes. I purchased this used about 6 years ago and it has been one of the best upgrades I've ever made. I'll probably keep it if I can't get my asking price. Includes original Tesla 6922 tubes and the set of EI Elite Gold 6DJ8's that are currently installed (~50 hours on this set), plus the OBM. My home is smoke, child and pet free; I rate this unit as 8/10, primarily for age and because I've opened it several times to roll the tubes, which is half the fun with this type of gear. :lol: Pacific Valve no longer has the page on their website, but here's an image and short description of the mods. Additional photos are available on request. Link $450 + shipping & insurance from 94536. Paypal is my preferred payment method and I will pay the fee. Local pick-up is also available.

Hi Dan, thanks for photos upload. Fine DAC. As far as I can see Yr dac is set to 110 volt input voltage (american standard) but in ITALY we have 220 v standard. From the uploaded images (rear views) I don't understand if there is a switch to change the working voltage to 220 or the dac works only with 110 V. input. Waiting for Yr reply. Giorgio

Giorgio, I am afraid that the input voltage is not switchable, you would need a 110-120VAC step-down transformer or some other 110-120VAC power source. Regards, Dan

Hi Wayne,

 

I've decided to keep the DAC, it just sounds too good to let it go.
