I'm selling my end game headphone setup to fund an acquisition in an even more expensive hobby.
Auditions are welcome in 3149 in the later parts of weekday evenings.
Group Purchase offers:
Buy the liquid carbon & the Matrix X-Sabre together and I'll throw in custom built balanced cables (neutrik heads, Canare core) which cost me $100
Buy all 3 together, you'll get it for a special package price of $2900 delivered anywhere in Aust. along with the headphone holders and the cables & an extra longer set of xlr cables!

This is a serious bit of gear and well deserving of the flagship title, very well reviewed from many sources, and IMO one of the best bang for buck Dacs around.
Has the detailed nature of the ES9018 DAC but with a touch of warmth and openess.
And the build quality is amazing, it is literally hawn out of a solid block of aluminium!
Mine is the silver version (don't mind the black stickers I have on them to dim the LEDs when I use it by the bedside.
Purchased from Noisymotel in Feb (still goes for $1300 there!)

Born out of a community project for headfi from boutique and very high end amp maker Alex Cavalli (who's cheapest amp besides this is 2k USD), a limited 2 runs of 1 thousand pieces each of an "affordable and transportable" amp that was fully discrete and could show case his amp design philosophy. and what a philosophy it is! It is an amazing sounding bit of gear and blows away gear more than double or triple its price.
The first run was $599USD and sold out very very quickly, the 2nd run was $799USD and is also completely sold out.
This one is #372 of the first batch and comes with a lifetime warranty that can be transferred between owners.
