  1. A Schiit Gungir would also be very good but as mentioned, Schiit DACs don't do USB as well as some units out there. Sent from my HTC 2PS6200 using Tapatalk
  2. I have the older R-S300 which I still use in my second system. Amazing little unit with a great sound and able to drive most speakers. Pair it with some QAcoustic speakers. Good system for not a great deal of money. Sent from my HTC 2PS6200 using Tapatalk
  3. I sometimes use Murfie. You can buy second hand or new CDs and have them link a downloadable Flac file. The artist only gets a share of the sale if they sell directly through Murfie however. Sent from my HTC 2PS6200 using Tapatalk
  4. Does it have to be vintage or are you just looking for decent quality? Sent from my HTC 2PS6200 using Tapatalk
  5. Thank you for the offer Steve. I forgot to add to the thread advising that they would probably be sold to a Canberra native before I could offer you an audition. Sent from my HTC 2PS6200 using Tapatalk
  6. I have the silver S6 and all I know is that I want these....they look amazing Sent from my HTC 2PS6200 using Tapatalk
  7. 080700-1 is the serial number Sent from my HTC 2PS6200 using Tapatalk
  8. Cheers. Honestly, if I could afford a decent class A/B amp or the DWM I would be happy for years. The sound on less bass intensive tracks is the best I've heard, even better then some high end stuff I've been lucky to hear. It's just unfortunate that the funds I ear marked for these now has to be diverted to a car. As sad as that is. Sent from my HTC 2PS6200 using Tapatalk
  9. Item: Magnepan MMG Location: Canberra Price: $800 firm Item Condition: 8/10 due to stand mod Reason for selling: Funds for bills and gear Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal (friend or add 3%) Extra Info: I am the second owner of the speakers. The previous owner had them for 3 years (so they are the newest revision) and I've had them for only a month or so. Although quite directional, they have an amazing sound especially with voices and acoustic music, but the lack of bass has been hard to deal with. It is there but obviously not like my Monitor Audio Silver s6 and due to needing a second car, I cannot afford to buy the DWM to pair with them. Hence the sale. Happy to audition these for interested people. Edit: Forgot to mention that I am happy to trade for a tube amp, decent headphones or other speakers at around the same price.
  10. I think they had a ridiculously long warranty period too. Very good components in these DACs. GLWTS Sent from my HTC 2PS6200 using Tapatalk
  11. I would look at something by NAD as they have the bluesound ecosystem which would be perfect for you Sent from my HTC 2PS6200 using Tapatalk
  12. The amp is most likely not the culprit here. It will deliver 100w of power into 4ohms; which I believe this speaker hovers at through a chunk of it's frequency response. The Ragnarok can provide decent amount of current and is a very well built amp. Sent from my HTC 2PS6200 using Tapatalk
  13. Hopefully I'm not too late. I actually used a Aune X1s which has everything you need. It has optical in and contains the ESS 9018k2m which is widely used and is a very decent chip. You can find one used for around 200-250 but new that are a bit over 300. I've used it with Hifiman he-350, Fostex TH-X00 and Beyerdynamic t90. It sounds best with the t90 because it has a high output impedance and it can provide a lot of power. It'll will sound best with headphone with a 50+ ohm impedance. Although it did sound fantastic with the Foster which is 32ohm it just wasn't as good as the Graham Slee I bought for it. Hit me up if you have any questions. Sent from my HTC 2PS6200 using Tapatalk
  14. I've heard this coupled with a HD650 and it was incredible. Really made the HD650 shine. GLWTS
  15. All done. Cheers Sent from my HTC 2PS6200 using Tapatalk
