Jolida’s new dac - Black Ice DSD with mega mods
Selling as I need a dac with a remote control for my TV system.
Jolida have changed their name due to the collaboration with Jim Fosgate to Black Ice Audio (I know!).
Their new Jolida Glass DAC in 384/32 DSD form has had a few mods over the popular Mk3 with a revised dac board (Jim’s design) and a new layout to the power supply board. Has the same headphone output that also controls the RCA output.
These retail at $800 excl freight, VAT duty etc.
This one for sale has the following upgrades and sings!
• Gold Furutech IEC mains connector
•Updated fuse (either a HiFi Tuning or Synergistic Research, can’t remember)
•DC filter cap on mains board now a Modwright film in oil cap
•Some power supply caps upgraded to Jensen, Audio Mote Keisei, 2x Blackgate for the low voltage feed
•Key cap on dac board now an Audio Note Keisei (board is designed by Jim Fosgate)
•5v regulator for dac board now New ClassD type
•Silver output wired onto Audio Note silver plated RCA’s
•Output tubes the Raytheon CK5755 Reliability Controlled types
•Some chassis dampening
•Output caps now Modwright film in Oil
•Herbies tube dampers
•Spiked on Ebony feet, brass tipped
So about £380 worth of upgrades excl labour.
WIFI of the Dac works fine. Stream to it over the internet from an Apple device. Download the WiFi receiver driver (an Apple app).
Windows needs a driver too.
Sounds ace reckon still burning in though as keeps improving. Maybe 300 hours on it. Would not sell it but really want a remote control dac.
Selling for £600 incl U.K. post (or close offers). Original box and manual but no UK power cable (does not fit in the box).
