Hey,
Personal thing, not Chorus related!

 

if I can get a small number of Topping D10 USB DACs - a well reviewed XMOS DAC. For the ~$120 range.
Would anyone be keen to buy one?

 

Typically NZ$140 via aliexpress.

If this were the E30, I'd be all over it; I want it to act as pre-amp, so having a remote control is a must.

 

That is a pretty good price though!

You wont get an E30 for that price.  Let me see what I can do. At a guess - probably $250ish, but let me see.

I've realised this might not be OK after reading the rules!
@freitasm - I don't physically have these (yet) - hence EOI, but I'm also not a store.. Maybe a grey area? let me know or delete if its not OK?

Couple of E30s on Ebay  for under $200, but at buyers risk I suppose.

Sorry, should have clarified that "for a similar sort of discount".

 

$250 is not too bad, could potentially be interested. Although, I have heard of some minor QC issues (funnily enough from the ASR review thread), so I'm guessing in this case it would be at the buyer's risk?

Not quite the dac I was looking for, always had an eye for the DX3 pro but could never get it at an affordable cost.

I was too slow and the supplier sold out of the last few D10s that I was eyeing up.

 

However, I have also learnt the D10 has been discontinued... replacement model in a month or 2. So maybe a blessing in disguise - the D10 being discontinued doesn't seem to be common knowledge.
