Hi,  I'm selling my Decware ZSB switch box.  It's brand new, never used, 10 out of 10 condition.

This is #002, the second one made.  Silver contact switch box with two stereo inputs, 2 pair of outputs. On the front it has a toggle switch for the two inputs, AND a stereo/mono toggle switch.  There are no other switches, caps, etc.

I had it made to listen to mono LPs, but never went thru with the project.

I paid $354 with shipping. My price is $220, which includes shipping. It will be very well packed.  PayPal, US sales only.

Feel free to check out my out Ebay feedback under terrapin_gardens.  Over 2000 positives with no negatives.

I've bought a new home (locally), am listing my current one in a few days, and am doing remodeling work on both ends, so I've got a lot going on right now.

Best bet is to contact me at my email, mike@terrapin-gardens.com

Thanks for looking!
Mike

Hi Archie, for me, I plan on not getting them (XLR Inputs on CKCS). Steve designed his RCA output stage to best both the stock RCA an XLR outputs, coming out of the ZDSD.

http://decware.com/newsite/ZDSD.html
"As seen in the picture above the rear of the Model ZDSD is outfitted with a pair of Silver RCA output jacks that work independently of the stock balanced and unbalanced outputs on the machine. These Silver Jacks are the output of a fully differential balanced circuit driving a fully floating pair of high gain, wide bandwidth transformers".

After extensive listening and modifying a pair of XLR adapters for my Vega, (per Auralic spec's~great service/timely from Auralec tech via email to me),....I prefer Steve's Output Stage~period.

I also prefer Steve's Output Stage over:
PS Audio DSD DAC
NAD M51 DAC
PS Audio PWT/PWD Combo
Anedio D1 DAC
Chord Chordette QuteHD DAC.

Furthermore, because of Steve's output stage from the ZDSD and my CSP3 and using the Input gain, Output Reference Level/ZDSD, Volume and Voltage adjustment from the CSP3.....I have everything that Balanced XLR has to offer.....into my ZMA.

Those that question this: Can bring over there best recordings and they will hear the mouse piddle on the cotton ball from the back of the Studio if so desired! Cabling matters too. Yes, the CSP3, is very transparent, used in high gain/voltage (8 out of 10 setting) output....to ZMA. The Alchemy Steve has created in my chain (ZDSD/PCM to CSP3 to ZMA) is stunning.

So why the: SE84CKCSelect/UFO & Caintuck Loudspeakers/Alpha Baffle w/Audyn Plus Caps?
Why not? It will be......a fun form of comparison to my Listening Room involvement/musicality.

Next up for my ZDSD:
PCM to DSD Recording needs to be done! I've only done a little PCM to PCM. The SD Sample Card/DSD, Steve sent with my ZDSD is stunning!

Time to revisit this phenomenal music, and I thought I'd give this cycle by the Guarneri Quartet the spin this time through.

I must say thanks for the uplifting timer at the left of the videos.  It helps me to realize how soon and special Zenfest is.  Just a bit more than 4 weeks and all can be right in an audio world!!!    ;)

Thought I would show what's inside. The small circuit in the corner is a power supply for the front panel LED which produces a nice soft glow.

Jeff,  The drivers were made for Parker Audio... They are no longer available as far as I know!

Dave may have a few pair but is probably holding on to them for any warranty  needs.
