  1. Item: Beyerdynamic DT880 PRO Headphones Location: Perth Price: $220 + shipping ($15 Australia wide) Item Condition: Excellent Reason for selling: Trying different headphones Payment Method: Cash, Paypal, EFT Extra Info: These are clean, fast sounding headphones that are also very comfortable to wear. I'm selling because I've since purchased another set of headphones. Specs (from http://north-america.beyerdynamic.com/shop/dt-880-pro.html) - The DT 880 PRO is a reference-class, semi-open studio headphone which combines all strengths of open, transparent headphones with those of more powerful, closed headphones. Specially designed housings and an improved system equalisation turn this “remake” of the studio classic DT 880 into an ideal studio monitoring headphone, with analytical qualities. Soft ear pads and adjustable, sliding, earpieces together with a single sided connecting cable ensure listening comfort during extended periods of use. Characteristics: > Semi-open diffuse-field studio headphone > 250 ohms > Analytical Sound > Comfortable fit due to rugged, adjustable, soft padded (leatherette) headband construction > Robust, easy serviceable construction as all parts are replaceable > Velour, circumaural and replaceable ear pads > 3.0 m (9.8 ft.) coiled cable (single sided) Pictures:
  2. Agreed - great DAC. You can upgrade the DSP version & USB to Amanero also to take it to the next level Sent from my HTC 10 using Tapatalk
  3. My 851W is in for repair too. I had a pop and then the amp went into protection mode. When I had a closer look, the smoke escaped from the right hand side. Prior to this I had heard some low level crackling but (stupidly) put it down to interference somewhere. i rang the repairer yesterday and they said they were replacing the whole RHS power amp module. However, luck was on my side as I just snuck in on the tail end of the warranty. Hopefully I will have it back next week.
  4. A highly recommended purchase! I have a P10 and it's been an excellent upgrade. I'm in WA and the power isn't great. The graph comes from the on-line portal every P3 /P5 / P10 has access to (http://powerplay.psaudio.com) - you just need to connect the unit to the network for internet access (no special config required). For example -
  5. Item: Sennheiser Momentum On-Ear Headphones (series 1) Location: Perth Price: $125 including postage Item Condition: Excellent Reason for selling: No longer used & retrospectively trying to pay for other upgrades Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, EFT, Paypal Extra Info: Pictures: I bought these headphones a couple of years for work use, but ended up using Bose QC25s instead because of their active noise cancelling. I actually thought the Sennheisers sounded better though. Original cables, carry case, pouch and after market cable are all included.

  6. No problem. My Apple TV can go back to it's cable envy
  7. @seaninbrisbane - how does it compare to the Ref 7? I have a Master 7 so interested to know!
  8. Interesting DAC... There's a decent size post on Head-Fi too - http://www.head-fi.org/t/833690/denafrips-ares-r2r-discrete-ladder-dac-close-up-view
  9. If anyone is looking for a more modestly priced but good quality HDMI cable, I got an Apollo cable off eBay and was pleased with the improvement - http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/361615375320
  10. I have a P10 too and it made a significant improvement to my system. The change to picture quality on my plasma was also very noticeable. Whoever buys this won't have any buyers remorse :-)
  11. I have one of these too, running my Audio GD Master 7 via HDMI I2S. It was a great improvement over the Amanero USB (and I sold my Regen + PSU + Curious Cable + JitterBug and recouped my outlay on the SU1). I've since upgraded the 5V regulator to a TPS7A4700 based drop in replacement (well, not quite a drop-in - it needed legs crossed over and a new mount point on the heatsink) and that yielded a nice improvment to the noise floor and detail.
