Default FS: Top of the Line Weiss Medea D/A Converter with Discrete Analog Output

I did the upgrade to MEDEA+ for a friend and he gave me the older board.
Perfect working excellent condition WEISS board G14A0200 GAMBIT D/A.
There is no schematic, is up to you to discover the functionality of the connectors . Its not that hard for an experienced person.
Take a look at the pictures.
Asking 390€

Maybe not hard, but even if the functionality is known how would that help? The DAC chip and receiver are both software controlled. If that isn't enough, the entire point of Medea is the DSP digital filter.

You can use your own Receiver chip and control/drive the DACs.

Not wanting to spoil the party but after 2.5 years it should be clear that wanting to sell an outdated board for 390 Euro (that also needs many hours finding out what is what) is somewhat unrealistic. There is probably some reverse engineering needed too as the connector is not standard, so one must design a board and have it produced to make use of this device. Having just one board produced is an expensive affair.

All in all a steep hill to take with so many affordable and excellent DACs around. Chances would change if the schematic or service manual was with it....and price was adapted to reality.

2.5 years?? That's already one sold my friend, that's another board and i have one more to come
Outdated????, if this is outdated so what is 1541 and the rest of the NOS chips that there is a whole community that use and swear about?
This is a Hi-End Professional DAC + Analog board from one of the most respectful manufacturers of Digital Audio all over the planet. Someone can feed the DAC chip with their own Receiver/ I2C/ whatever, and make use of the this magnificent analog output stage with Zero output impedance.
The project is not for everybody my friend, and i did have the opportunity to listen to it (as a complete DAC1/pro) and was by far better than any dac that reach my system and costing many thousands of Euros.
As a final word this is a DAC and analog stage of a machine costs 10000Euros at least so why 390Euros seems to high to U?

For the reasons stated above. It needs work and a board design which is fishing in the dark without schematics etc. Let me say that even if I would get it for free I would do nothing with it. The amount of hours involved would make it more difficult than designing a complete new device (one without Zero Ohm output impedance FWIW )

Cost of a device often is not related to quality, one pays of the brand name.
