SOLD: MHDT Pagoda DAC with extra tubes

**Price: $1339.00
**Ships to: US and Canada
Bought new May 2021 from LTA.
Comes with the stock tube (unused) the Western Electric 396a upgrade tube and a Raytheon 5670 (military JRP5670 1954 dated square getter) from Brent Jesse Recordings.
Mint shape, original box and manual. I did replace the cover screws with stainless steel screws since the ones that it came with were poor quality and the drive stripped easily.
Upgrading to a much more expensive DAC.

Pagoda DAC is a non over-sampling, no digital filter, no op-amp, no feedback structured DAC. This tends to produce most realistic and natural sound.

Pagoda DAC is capable of up to 24bits/192kHz digital signal inputs yet remains driving legendary PCM1704 R-2R digital to analog output.

The USB input section is in asynchronous operation.

Total four independent digital inputs; BNC, USB, RCA and Toslink.

The 4 digital inputs are independent to each other, only one among them will be active and is controlled by the tact switches located in front panel.

Tube buffered output, tube in stalled is 5670 tube.

Tubes can be used: 5670, 2C51, 396A, 6385, 6CC42, 6854, 6N3,

I believe you have to be “member” rank to edit past 7 days.

Price may be negotiable if you don’t want the upgraded tubes.

Sold, all gone, bye bye
