    It's an a/d/s/ da20e...

    super rare unit, only like 5 used in the united states. This one was imported from thailand, I've used it for a while but I was thinking about selling my entire head unit / DAC combo and just getting the new drz-9255...

    anyways, anyone got an idea what this would be worth to someone?

    If there are only 5 units in the US, it's probably worth quite a bit. Do you have any idea how much it originally sold for?

    What kind of digital input does it have? Optical or electrical?

    there were more sold overseas, not a whole lot more, but enough. I meant 5 units were originally in the US before some were imported over in the secondary market (like mine, for example).

    I contacted many guys at a/d/s/ and they basically said it was a joint venture with nakamichi. this unit is older but one was featured in the a/d/s/ demo car for a while. I have no idea how much it originally sold for, i bought it from some guy for a ridiculously low price, who hooked me up because I'm just his friend.

    It's a coaxial input, 4 volt output. I bought it to get rid of the noise problems I was having with the internal DAC in my headunit and it definitely got rid of the problems.

    Even the cheapest of external DAC's are pretty expensive, no? It's a question of finding someone who wants one, i guess.

    look up techman on sounddomain.com... i'm sure if he did not want it, he could find someone for you.
