dCS Verona Master (Digital) Clock


This piece is a must if you're trying to assemble a reference quality digital playback system.

Tested and working as it should, and do note this will work with a dCS stack as well as other compatible CD transports/players.

No signs of use of wear visible. $7k MSRP when new  in 2005.

From a Stereophile review written by John Aktinson:

As a limited-production component manufactured in a country with a strong currency, the $6995 Verona is inevitably expensive in the US. Value for money? Fuggedaboudit! The Verona's applicability for use in non–dCS-based systems is almost zero, given that the Verdi is one of only two SACD/CD transports of which I am aware that has a word-clock input (the other is the new Esoteric X-01). But if you have a dCS Verdi-Elgar SACD player—and I know that, at $33,985, that's not going to be too many people—the Verona will take it a small but nonetheless important step forward in sound quality to achieve the best sound quality I have yet heard, not only from SACD but from CD as well.
