Original owner; extremely well cared for; nearly flawless.
This is RWA's original (SLA version) Isabellina DAC, introduced about 10 years ago. My unit is about 5 years old.
My history with RWA DACS...
The original Isabellina DAC was introduced about 10 years ago, selling for $2,500 (see link to review, below). Vinnie built this for me when his SLAs were out of production. My goal was to get the best NOS DAC I could, without spending a $1,000 or more. Vinnie had everything he needed in the shop, including faceplate and chassis. That's how this unit came to be.
This is my 3rd DAC built by Red Wine Audio. My first was in the original Isabella Pre/DAC, priced at $5,500. Second was in a RWA Isabellina LFP-V DAC w/ variable volume control outputs. The LFP-V DAC supported NOS and hi-rez, but I preferred listening to NOS, for its anolog sound.
This is a great way to own a quality NOS DAC without spending a ton of $. Made in the USA, too!. Would also make a great "2nd DAC," for a break from hi-rez.
Note: NOS means non-over sampling. If this term is new, you may want to Google.
