  1. Packing and shipping for these are very tricky. I purchased a pair and got shipped from Melbourne to Brisbane back 2005. From memory, I paid $350. They were wrapped up completely but still arrived with broken side panel and a crease in one ribbon but still worked. They are quite heavy and must be transported upright. Also, they are power hungry. Back then, only the Gryphon DM100 and the Krell KAS mono could feed them and they were unbeatable. GLWS
  2. Very nice amp. I remember reading about it on Whathifi Mag, 1998 issue and salivated with the just the thought of owning one. Would definitely consider buying if was 230v
  3. No worries, Mine has just gone into service for tray opening issue. I suspect that it is a belt problem. If you need anything else. I will be able to help with further photos when I get it back.
  4. Remarkable video! I cant believe it came out when I was only couples years old. People and reputable Hifi mags reviewers often described music as "sounding natural" which I've always had problem with because what is a natural sound?. Mr Encel conveyed the meaning of that 40 years ago.... Also, very Interesting take on Head-fi vs HiFi system. People should make more videos like this one rather than unboxing or reviewing one single piece of gear.
  5. Hi Are you still after some photos of the M5 internal board? I have one and I can take some photos for you
  6. Further information: Used it only a few times before it went back into the box. paid $900 + $ the extra modifier reflector. It is just like new. Photos: Advertisements without photos of the actual item will not be approved.
  7. Further information: I bought this used and instantly was impressed with its ability to deliver music full & smooth. It is powerful and finesse. As soon as I bought it, I spent $135 to get a full check and clear for any dry joints (I do this with every piece of used electronic that I purchased). It comes with double locking headphones outputs which is really handy for headphones reviewing and the secure locking mechanism is great for accidentally ripping ( i wish other manufacturers have this feature). I also have Burson Conductor V2+ (for my other system) which I used its DAC output to feed into Audio GD for comparison and it sounds just as full and spacious. In fact, I could not really tell the difference. I thought I would keep it forever but a mate is moving overseas and sold me his Sugden HA4 for a great price and so I could no longer justify having 2 extra amps. Many revered write ups about it on the net. Please note that It has some marks on the volume control and headphones and Burson are not included. They are in the photos only for physical size comparison. Excerpt from manufacturer: Class A design built by discrete analog stages without any OPA or coupling caps in the signal channels. Non- feedback ACSS and output stage designs just same as our top grade Master 9 Total applied 4 pcs exact matched 150W transistors in pure class A output stage. 3000MW at 25 ohm Pure Class A ,drives most headphones working in pure class A , 8000mW at 40 ohm max output, no matter if you have low sensitivity headphones +/- 35V DC high voltage power supply built in, Class A PSU's for DC supply. Uses most Hi-end grade parts and exactly matched transistors, OCC wires. 100 steps digitally controlled relay-based volume control avoids channel imbalance and improves sound quality . Supper Exponential Volume Characteristic, easy match the volume with very high sensitivity headphones and speakers 10 DB and 19DB gain can drive the high and low sensitivity headphones 5 groups input: RCA X4, ACSS X1 Preamp output : RCA / RCA / ACSS Headphone amp output: 4pins XLR X1 / 6.3MM X1 Photos: Advertisements without photos of the actual item will not be approved.
  8. Those rubber surrounds don't often deteriorate (except for some extreme circumstances). The bass drivers still have the original surrounds however.
  9. Can you let me know why the original rubber surrounds of the Uni-Q drivers were replaced and the dust caps are now covering the high frequency drivers
  10. Further information: I bought this Dragonfly black to mainly use with my iphone & laptop for when im on the move (with my B&W p7 headphones). It made a huge difference. I don’t know how one can stand listening to Iphone or laptop music without one of these. I don’t travel nearly as much for work anymore plus I purchased a DAP with matching DAC & so i mostly use those so it needs to go to good home.

  11. My consultation regarding dust cap causing distortion... That would be $100 fee thanks . Glad you started to enjoy them again. I'll keep searching
  12. Sorry i made a mistake in the ad. PLEASE NOTE: the asking price does NOT include postage cost
