Audio Nemesis DC-1 VLE Limited Edition Italian R2R DAC (used)

Post by mikey8811 on Tue Apr 05, 2016 6:45 pm

Item: Audio Nemesis DC-1 VLE Limited Edition R2R DAC (used)
 
Specifics: Non Over Sampling R2R Ladder or Multibit DAC, VLE is for Very Limited Edition – only 40 were made and this is No. 39. The designer kept No. 40 for his own personal use.

Reason for Sale:

To get a higher end R2R DAC like the TotalDAC or Lampizator which costs a lot more. I've compared tracks on this R2R Multibit DAC with the DSD equivalent on the other DAC I have listed for sale the PS Audio Direct Stream which costs 5 times more and preferred the high res PCM tracks. It's a different sound. Overall, I prefer R2R DAC's to Delta Sigma ones.

I also preferred the DC1 VLE to a Mark Levinson multibit DAC costing 3 times its price that I used to have. It's very musical and competitive with big ticket DAC's for the price.

Reviews:
 
Mono and Stereo –“Non oversampling devices offers a certain stressless presentation, that many contemporary DAC's fail to bring. VLE is for sure among few DAC's that revive a close feelings of analog easiness. Music comes in a way, that is much freer of digitits and this shows clearly with the prolonged listening.

"I double checked it against a dCS player with dac... bass was identical. Mid was very similar with more magic from VLE, high could be improvable for VLE, as I already knew. But VLE did cost 1/10... A customer wrote me that VLE was 99% of a 10 times more expensive (Orpheus) dac."

“Emotional, unrestrained, on many occasion feather like presentation. “



“Audio Nemesis will find homes with audiophiles and music lovers, that are searching for that special something. Not special for the name sake, but performance and connection to the music.”
 
http://www.monoandstereo.com/2013/09/audio-nemesis-experience.html
 
AV Mentor –  “Perhaps the most characteristic feature of the DC-1 is a suspect character, something that you feel more and listen less.”

"Bluntly, if you're looking for something special and do not give any importance to features, then the DC-1 VLE  is the device that should get"
 
http://www.avmentor.gr/reviews/group_test_dacs_8.htm

About Hi Fi - "the VLE is characterized by the analogue feeling found on the DC-1 and explores it further in levels of warmth and detail"

“The VLE is an extraordinary converter in character and realisation.”

“the only real issue here is the very limited numbers produced by the manufacturer which will turn the VLE into a collectors item, very , very soon”
