  1. @seaninbrisbane - how does it compare to the Ref 7? I have a Master 7 so interested to know!
  2. 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
  3. 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
  4. 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 :-)
  5. 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.

  7. Item: Bose QC25 Noise Cancelling Headphones (right ear not working) Location: Perth Price: $75 Item Condition: Faulty, but excellent otherwise Reason for selling: No needed (replaced) Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, EFT, Paypal + Postage ($15 Australia wide) Extra Info: The Bose QC25 headphones offer excellent noise cancelling and performance. Unfortunately, on this pair the right ear is not working. It failed out of warranty and I was able to get another pair using Frequent Flyer points. Otherwise, they are in excellent condition.Included in the prices is the headphones, cable with microphone, hard case, and airline plug adaptor. You probably would spend more than $75 just to get the accessories. Would suit someone who is able / interested in repairing them or else looking for a cheap set of accessories to complement an existing pair.

  9. All items sold now pending payment. Thanks all.
  10. Thanks all - lots of interest in all the items separately except the Regen. I'd like to wait a tad longer for a package sale if possible but will not draw things out.
  11. Item: Uptone Regen (Amber), Curious Regen Link, Teradak U9 Linear PSU, AudioQuest Jitterbug (Perth) Location: Perth SOR Price: See below Item Condition: Excellent Reason for selling: No longer needed Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, EFT Extra Info: For those of us streaming audio over USB, the UpTone Regen is an incredible bang for buck upgrade. It isolates and reclocks the data stream with very good benefits out of the box. However, further gains can be had through the use of a linear power supply (to replace the standard switched mode one supplied) and a Curious Cable Regen link. I also found that an AudioQuest Jitterbug before the Regen added even more value. My preference is to sell all 4 items together as this will deliver the best results for the new owner. For someone wanting all 4, I'll post at my cost. I'm happy to take expressions of interest in the items for individual sale should the sale of 4 not eventuate over the next week or two. Pricing Summary UpTone Regen - $190 TeraDak U9 Linear PSU - $50 Curious Cable Regen Link - $90 AudioQuest Jitterbug - $40 All prices exclude shipping unless purchased together. More detail - UpTone Regen Link - https://uptoneaudio.com/products/usb-regen Price - $190 + shipping (current RRP & shippping = USD201) Notes - includes original packaging except for the US power cord TeraDak U9 Linear PSU Link - http://www.teradak.com/products/46.html Review - http://www.stereo.net.au/forums/topic/57902-teradak-low-noise-linear-power-supply-cheap-and-clean-5v-usb-power-source/ Price - $50 (RRP ~$80 including shipping) Notes - The unit has a USB output also - I used it to power a BananaPi for streaming. The power cable has been upgraded to twisted pair silver plated OFC with shield. The holes in the case were added for improved cooling airflow. Curious Cable Regen Link Link - http://www.curiouscables.com/buy.html Price - $90 (RRP $160) AudioQuest JitterBug Link - http://www.audioquest.com/jitterbug/jitterbug Price - $40 (RRP $80) Pictures:
