  1. Thanks for comments. I bought the Denon Heos and it works fine casting from android and ios up to 24/192.
  2. Mark all Hypex model numbers are @ 4 Ohms.
  3. I'm willing to exchange my silver faceplate if anyone needs it now.
  4. DIY
  5. Item: Audeze LCD-3-fazor Location: Langwarrin Price: $1500 Item Condition: Perfect - no visible defects Reason for selling: Regrading Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Bank Tx, COD Only Extra Info: This unit was repaired by Audeze last year, upgraded to 2016 specs and issued a 3 year warranty. Comes in original box ( not pelican case) with SE and balanced cables. Registered with Audeze, S/No. on request. Preference given to pick-up. Pictures:
  6. Squeezebox touch can be controlled (by squeeze player) but cannot be served by ios or android devices, so no good for me.
  7. Ditto as per Marks reco, but I spray the cotton with 3M Scotchgard Fabric Protector, 4 plait braid and cover in nylon or Kevlar (softer & stronger) braided cable sleeving. Solid will eventually fracture with use so current cables are silver 19 strand 28AWG. no more issues.
  8. I'm trying to find a good music player app to cast (stream using Wi-Fi) my music library on my Android phone through my main system Dac. Unfortunately the Samsung S6 doesn't seem to have the gain via chromecast (or even via a Dragonfly Red for that matter) to TV then Toslink into Dac. My iPhone internal digital gain is much greater. Is anyone streaming their android phone library content to their main stereo system and if so what device and player app have you found to give you satisfactory results. Also what Wi-Fi receiver are you using? I have a Pure Jongo A2 receiver on order which has coax out and uses it's own proprietary player software loaded to android device. Anyone using an iPhone with Airport Express, and is anyone able to stream higher than red book? A bunch of questions I know but it's a bit of a jungle to an old school stereo buff like me. Bluetooth options need not respond.
  9. Hi Mark, the RB300 will have a tungsten counterweight which is twice the mass of brass, titanium is almost half the mass of brass.
  10. ...and give the designer some due by spelling his name correctly - Joe Rasmussen
  11. Great cans for the price, easy to drive and ideal for on the go, and yes you can run them balanced if your DAP is capable. I have balanced cables for these in both 3.5 and 2.5 TRRS if anyone needs one.
  12. Happy to take this.
  13. Can also be used with iphone 5/6 utilising a $4 30pin to lightning adapter. The 30pin to usb/c adapter may also work with the nexus but I haven't tried it.
  14. Item: VHS Video Cassette Location: Langwarrin Price: Free Item Condition: Look Fine Reason for selling: Not needed Payment Method: Pickup Only Extra Info: These came from my parent's garage cleanout. Various brands, mostly 120 & 180min. All recorded on once only. Up to you to erase unless you have a fondness for Andre Rieu, Oompa and Viennese Christmas specials. Pictures:
  15. I apply a light coat of oil to the baffle rebate and back of the driver basket, wipe it off, apply a coat of clear silicone to rebate and smear an even 0.5-0.7mm thick coat. Allow a few days for it to cure and fit the driver. The silicone can be easily removed later if necessary.
