This is a world class DAC. The Metrum Acoustics Pavane is often compared to Chord Dave and Aqua HiFi DACs all of which are in the family of ladder DACs. Ladder DACs are described as more analog sounding more like a great turntable, less digital and less fatiguing. If you're looking for layers and layers of high resolution and depth without digital grunge this is the DAC. I could elaborate further but I will allow all the great reviews to speak the Pavanes performance. Very important, this Is a "level three" Pavane, compared to last year's Pavane "level one" the new new level three completely doubles the amount of R2R ladders with it's DAC TWO high end modules with a sampling rate 384 kHz and has significant improved resolution. Pavane "level Three" has the exact same performance as the highly acclaimed Adagio, the only difference being the volume control.
I am building a new home where my new priorities will be scaled back headphone listening, home theater and generating the funds to finish the project, hence the Pavane is sale.
I am the original owner. The unit was purchased from an authorized US dealer and is just 2 months old and performs flawlessly. I always rate what I sell conservatively and I rated the units condition as excellent but I can't find a flaw on it. The DAC has been in a climate controlled pet, smoke, kid and wife free listening room. Included is remote control, factory USB stick and packaging.
