    I bought this off open door a few months ago not had much time to use it so could sell if you're interested,
    below is taken from original post by open door...

    "Jolida’s new dac - Black Ice DSD with mega mods
    Jolida have changed their name due to the collaboration with Jim Fosgate to Black Ice Audio
    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.

    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.
    Sounds ace reckon still burning in though as keeps improving. Maybe 300 hours on it. .
    Selling for £600 incl U.K. post. Original box and manual but no UK power cable (does not fit in the box)."



    All in mint condition and wifi is working perfectly and sounding great will sell for £500 inc post

    Thanks for the jolida posts.
    Looks very nice but a little outside my budget for a jolida.
