  1. Further information: Photos: This a great DAC that still sounds better than other DACs, I have heard in 2020. It is very precised and meaty (if it is the right term to describe it) and transparent. You will find that this version is very different to most DAC1 version you see online as I was told that it was built for home audio. Benchmark does make other DAC 1 variations with rack ears for studio and PA application (not sure if any special tuning has been done to different version but the case is absolutely factory built like that). I purchased this from a local hifi enthusiast a few years ago and I have been using it with my Sony XA5es and this combination is still unbeatable especially with XLR connection. I already had the DAC 2 when I purchased it but I was really curious about it and there was little to no difference between the two (maybe in a different system but in mine I couldn't tell) and It has lived with me ever since. It It can be used as a Pre-amplifier or a headphones amplifier which can drive my Sen HD800s and Audeze LCD 2 with ease. By the way, I use it with Wavelength Audio USB DA converter for Streaming and it sounds velvety smooth and detailed. This Wavelength will also be available for the buyer of this DAC should he/she want to buy it. You can audition it if you're a local enquirer and can bring your reference CD player along to compare. It is in very good condition, no deep scratches or dents, just some usual usage marks around the front which can be cleaned off and one faded letter as shown in the photos I believe the last one sold here was over $500 so asking price is fair. The reason for selling 1. I also have a DAC 2 in silver which aesthetically matches the rest of my now components 2. I want to try different DAC PLEASE READ If you are advertising multiple items, you must post one bulk price only, or post seperate ads for each item If you include any reference to pricing whatsoever in this section (excluding RRP), your ad will not be approved If you don't include photographs of the actual item being sold, your ad will not be approved
  2. Many years ago I was looking everywhere for these. You are correct, they need good amplification and space to give you a unique musical experience.
  3. Further information: I am selling these on behalf of a friend who only recently moved on to a MDZ-1R. I never own this model before but first impression is wide sound stage, sweet & smooth high and very comfortable. It is very well built (feel more robust than K7xx which i used to have). He purchased it from store DJ for $800. It has 1 mark on the left rubber band and both bands are still in great shape. Leather band is still in great shape too. Cups are still plush and comfy. It comes with spiral cable, long cable, velvet bag, boxes, 6.5mm adaptor & some papers.

  4. Hi Zippi Unfortunately, an enquirer down South has contacted me about it before you. If he passed on them then I will contact you and discuss further. Regards
  5. Do you mean the leather band? if yes then it is good as per attached photo
  6. I purchased this DAC new to use during my travels. I used it my smart phone and also used it with my laptop & B&W P7 headphones & It drives the P7 nicely. It is fully compatible with Windows 10 and MAC without installing extra driver. Just plug and play. I much prefer its sound over dragonfly red. I started out using Dragonfly black and then Red and then DAC3 but now Im moving on bigger thing (Chord Mojo) but portability to sound ratio wise, It’s hard to beat. You wont be disapointed Excerpt from Nuforce Powerful sound in a small, affordable package: Don’t let its diminutive size fool you: the uDAC family packs a real punch when it comes to improving the sound you’ll get from your computer; meeting or exceeding the performance of many audiophile-grade CD players. The uDAC-3 is flexible too: its outputs include stereo analog RCA jacks, digital S/PDIF coaxial, and a high-performance headphone output that accommodates most headphones. Why the little uDAC can make such a big difference: Due to cost considerations, the DAC and headphone amp stages employed in most computers are typically not designed to deliver best-quality sound. This can result in subtle errors in the conversion and amplification processes, which diminishes audio quality. Advanced NuForce design yields a warmer, more detailed and a fundamentally more accurate rendering of the source file. Music through the uDAC-3 sounds richer and fuller with more clarity in the highs, more “body” in the mids, and more depth and power in the lows. You’ll hear details in your favorite tunes as you’ve never heard them before. Your favorite headphones and speakers will finally reproduce sound to their full potential too.

  7. Further information: These In ear headphones are great and probably the best in its class. Quality design and built. Comes with accessories as pictured. Different coloured ends do provide different signature sound. You have to spend a lot more dos to get something similar quality or better. See review and explanation link below Reason for sale: I purchased a pair of Sennheiser IE800s price include postage Australia wide https://www.head-fi.org/showcase/lz-a4.22062/reviews Photos: PLEASE READ If you are advertising multiple items, you must post one bulk price only, or post seperate ads for each item If you include any reference to pricing whatsoever in this section (excluding RRP), your ad will not be approved If you don't include photographs of the actual item being sold, your ad will not be approved
  8. Further information: I have owned all the K7## models but these are the only pair that stay with me until now. They have bigger sound stage, sweeter and sound fuller than K712 & Senhieser HD600 which I have sold here for more than this asking price ( market decides on price which does not proportionately reflect SQ sometimes). They are limited edition that came out in 2014-15. Sound stage wise, they are not far behind my HD800s. They definitely beat all other Sennheiser models that I have owned. By the way, they are very comfortable & you cant really feel them on your head unlike the Audeze LCD2 The only reason why it is here is because my HD800s & LCD 2 get more attention & it is a colossal waste to see it’s sitting on its stand instead of being appreciated so it needs to go to good home. Unless you can purchase the mentioned models for $200, you will not find anything that can beat it. Pads are a bit faded due to regular cleaning. It has been hygienically cleaned for this sale. Original box will be included. couple of reviews from owners: https://www.head-fi.org/threads/sennheiser-hd650-vs-akg-k7xx.755497/ https://www.head-fi.org/threads/my-akg-comparison-k7xx-k712-65th-annies-and-the-rest-to-stop-this-confusion.752994/ https://www.reddit.com/r/headphones/comments/ajcvkk/akg_k712_vs_akg_k7xx_side_by_side_comparison/?utm_source=amp&utm_medium=&utm_content=post_body Photos: PLEASE READ If you are advertising multiple items, you must post one bulk price only, or post seperate ads for each item If you include any reference to pricing whatsoever in this section (excluding RRP), your ad will not be approved If you don't include photographs of the actual item being sold, your ad will not be approved
  9. That maybe why we now have Chinese companies that are producing some of the finest IEMs. In this case, how could one know how good is just as good without hearing a real pair. I own a pair so I know its signature sound but let say if there are 5 different grades of these knock offs then it would be hard for the average person to tell which one they get. Also, there is issue with longevity as knock offs manufacturers cut corners to make them cheap in the first place. I remember when they first came out back 2013-14, almost all eBay listings back then were not genuine articles and they were being sold for around AUD$400-$800. I read somewhere that folks who purchased them, got refunded but thought that they were good. These days, you can purchase them for AUD$20-$60 on Wish and I saw a review video stating that it sounds like a $10 earphones
  10. Problem with this is there are plenty of knock offs ( in a variety of grades and some sound almost as good as the real deal so it would be hard to tell). Unless you buy this from Authorised dealer. Even Sennheiser tech guy had trouble distinguishing them. There are a fair few discussions online about this
  11. Item: Price Range: Item Condition: New or Used Extra Info: I am chasing a Ares II but will consider mark I if you have one Cheers Please don't forget to report your post as FOUND when possible. (You can now delete this text).
  12. Some sellers do prefer the convenience of picking up in person rather than sending. It happened
  13. Apology to OP for digressing a little but I assume at this stage, the DAC is pending and will be sold so I hope he wouldnt mind. I was referring to the black version without the rack ears. I thought perhaps one is made for home and one is for PA or studio application. Just wondering if anyone knows https://www.inta-audio.com/studio-recording-c57/ad-converters-dacs-c323/benchmark-dac1-black-no-rack-ears-p4944
  14. It's great DAC for CD transport. This is the High Gloss front fascia too. Does anyone know why BM DAC 1 has another style of front fascia. GLWS
