The Channel Islands Audio VDA2 DAC is one of the very best of the affordable DACs, and is even better with the upgrade power supply VAC1. It compared favourably over the Benchmark DAC1 in our reference system, notably being more refined and more musically engaging.

This one is in as new condition, having been used for only a month and stored since.

See details at http://www.ciaudio.com/

We have too many DACs for our testing needs and so this one has to go.

Retail is USD778 or around $1,000 NZD.

See this review where the VDA2 + VAC1 are compared favourably with the Benchmark DAC1.

Note that this VDA2 is serial number DC3684 and is the upgraded version (all after DC3645 have the upgrade as standard).

See this review where the VDA2 beat the Bel Canto DAC3 (USD2000) and competed directly with no winner against the Audio Logic 24 MXL DAC (USD4000).
