    More of an interest check than a for sale ad... but I might be willing to let it go. Haven't truly made up my mind yet, but could use the cash. Such is life. I'll likely regret it since I dislike most traditional DACs.

    To me this is perfection. No other device pulls me into music like the spring two. No 'velvet sound' flat dynamics. True NOS done right. Very detailed, never fatiguing, thick hard-hitting bass. Extremely low noise with impressive on-board USB that has near zero latency and supporting up to PCM 1.5K/DSD1024. All boutique discrete, no chip conversion to analog. Sounds totally unlike delta sigma. Raw. Natural, emotional.

    I bought my Spring 2 during release with -1000HKD discount promotion. In total I paid Wildism 24000HKD including international EMS shipping. This excludes the additional european VAT/Customs duties...

    This is the full Wildism level 3 mod. My wildism edition comes with:
    1.Pure Silver 220V/230V compatible Transformer
    2.Jensen Ceramic Tube Copper Foil Oil Cap
    3.Xsymphony Pure Silver Litz Wiring
    -Double Run IEC to AC board
    -Single Run AC board to Main Board
    4.Remove all plastic plug (direct connection)
    5.Audionote Kaisei Bipolar Cap
    10000uf 25v x2
    6.Audionote Kaisei Bipolar Cap
    2200uf 16v x4
    7.Audionote Kaisei Bipolar Cap
    10uf 16v x4
    8.Audionote Kaisei Bipolar Cap
    5uf 16v x4
    9. Ground Filter
    10. Audionote Trans-280 Silver/Gold Digital Transformer replaces the stock transformer

    I would sell for €2200 including insured courier shipping to EU. International shipping to 220/230V non EU countries possible, in which case shipping would be split between us both depending on the absurdity of shipping cost.

    For comparison, Magna hi-fi sells their level 3 (which only includes wiring and transformer, no caps) for € 2.979
    So grab yourself a real level 3 spring two. No VAT/customs duty collection, no waiting list or other bullshit.

    Might put this on other forums in a month or so. I'm not in a particular hurry. I'd love if it were to go into the loving care of someone that truly appreciates the magic of this thing.

    cheers
