Rather long in the tooth DAC but great sounding DAC. Good condition both function and visual. Comes with JJ Gold pin 12AX7 tube (about 60 hours used). Original tube was EH (not very good sounding). Mine is second generation 24/192 version. 
First limitations:
[list]
[*]Only two inputs, one optical and one SPDIF.
[*]No USB ( Consonance USB interface is provided for use with USB)
[*]No display to indicate which input is playing. Even looking at the switch, you cannot guess which input is playing!
[*]No standby and no remote
[*]ON button is at the back panel
[*]Can't do DSD
[*]Not as detailed as modern DACs
[/list]
Now the good stuff:
[list]
[*]Dynamic analogue like sound
[*]Very good sound stage
[*]Great vocals
[*]Bass
[/list]
Please google for reviews and specs.
Comes with following accessories:
[list]
[*]Consonance USB-SPDIF interface (so that you can connect USB out to the DAC)
[*]UK made 75 Ohm SPDIF cable
[*]Standard power cable.
[/list]
Condition: 7/10 due to age, no box, no manual.
Price: RM1200 Firm with all accessories. Yeh yeh, pi Tanjung
RM 1000 without accessories. 
Unit is in Kuantan. Can arrange audition in Kuantan or in Cyberjaya if you agree with the price.
Interested? Please Whatsapp/ring 016 nine two two 7860.

This was my first attempt at streaming: a cheap netbook, Consonance interface, CAL Sigma DAC. It took a Pioneer N70A Streamer to finally better this combo. In storage for last 3 years.
