Stello CDA320 24/192 CD Player (DAC)
This unit is in excellent condition and comes with original remote control and instructions. I don't have the original packaging though.
- have three digital inputs (1 coax, 2 toslink) this means is can act like a DAC for other digital devices
- supports balanced output (full balance design)
- class a output stage
- selectable upsampling modes
From Soundstage Review:
But (and this is a big "but") the crazy thing is, I cannot fault the performance of this CD player in the slightest. It's that good -- that satisfying musically. The CDA320 is an equal opportunity conveyor of music. Yes, the tweaking part is an initial letdown because you expect it to transform the sound, and you feel as if part of the hard-earned two grand paid for this CD player has been wasted. However, as you get familiar with its performance, you'll be grateful that the sonic character of the CDA320 remains a constant. Connect it with your XLR cables if you can, with your RCAs if you can't, set it to Bypass, and enjoy.

SoundStage! Equipment Review - Stello CDA320 CD Player (7/2006)
I have owned this player for a couple of months and have been told to reduce the number of hi-fi items I have. During this time I have a replacement transport mechanism fitted (same as original) at a cost of £80.
This is quite a flexible player and has 2 upsampling modes, an additional benefit is that with 3 digital inputs it can also take a digital feed from other devices i.e. DAB radio, DVD or other CD player and use the excellent upsampling DAC in the Stello.
This brand is enjoying a little more popularity in the UK, the original price for this player was around £1500.
You are welcome to listen to the CD during the course of the auction, please contact me to arrange this.
I would prefer cash on collection, that way you can have a listen to the player before you take it away.
Any questions please ask, no overseas bidders.
