This Parasound Zdac v.2 is in like new condition. Very little use so I am selling.
The separate volume controls for headphones and RCA/XLR outputs is very convenient if you plan to use headphones and speakers with this device.
Top quality built product and excellent sounding, this is a very refined DAC, preamp, and headphone amp.
