  1. Item: GRAHAM SLEE SOLO ULTRA-LINEAR Diamond Edition Location: Sydney east Price: $720 firm Item Condition: New Reason for selling: Stax system Payment Method: Pickup - Cash; Post - bank deposit / PayPal gift Extra Info: New in box, 2-year warranty, receipt provided. I took delivery of this from Wyndham Audio (Australian distributor) less than a fortnight ago. In the interim I bought Stax earphones & matching amp, which I'll use as my main setup. The Graham Slee ULDE retails for $1,110 - and can't be had for less than $1050 - so I've priced it to sell. This amp is widely regarded as being one of the finest available. See link below for reviews. Reviews Pictures:
  2. Yes, thanks a lot for that review. Sounds like an awesome show. Led Zeppelin will forever be my favourite band. It's that intangible excitement in every riff, beat, song...

    Massdrop Topping DX7s DAC

    Was that on topic? Okay. I heard A LOT of change in sound with two Topping DACs over the first 100 hours... With every new DAC I've ever had, actually.

    WTB: Bookshelf speakers up to $400 (Sydney)

    Thanks a lot to both of you. I'm in no rush, the Monitor Audios might be a food fit. (Yes, saw the Dyns - just a little short for my setup).
  5. Item: Bookshelf speakers Price Range: $100 - $400 Item Condition: Used Location: Sydney Extra Info: I have a 50W Arcam amp for TV/background listening duties. The Arcam has a slightly dark character so I'm looking for bookshelf speakers to complement it. Height can be up to 450mm. I can pick up anywhere in Sydney region. Thanks very much for looking. Please don't forget to report your post as FOUND when possible. (You can now delete this text).
  6. Hi Sydneysiders, I recently took delivery of Grado statement headphones but am unsure if it's a GS1000i or the earlier GS1000. The components have elements of both models, so I'm wondering if this is a very early GS1000i or not. If there's anyone in Sydney with GS1000i's I'd love to opportunity to (briefly) compare them with mine. (PM me please). Luckily the seller is happy for me to send them back as he's unsure as well. Many thanks for reading.

(I see you're in Melbourne..Just have a courier pick it up). Quality players like this crop up from time to time here. This or something similar is what you should be looking at. Otherwise you won't be satisfied with the sound IMO.

    Would that be a DENSEN by any chance?

    NAD C372 Red Light of Death

    I've had this happen to me with the same model. Blown capacitor, which had taken out other caps and resistors in the circuit. Technician commented that NAD's stock caps weren't the best choice.

    The great DAC conundrum

    I wouldn't rush it. The A3.5 is a really good CD player in its own right. In the years since its release, many more modern DACs have excelled in detail retrieval yet are less musical. So I'd see how the A3.5 sounds upstream in your system first. That will help you decide on the sound signature of any additional DAC. (You might also like to find out if the clock in the Musical Fidelity MX-DAC synchronizes with the A3.5 through any proprietary connection).

    Marantz local RRP - SAY WHAT?

    All wonderful brands. And Legend Acoustics too. We're fortunate to have such good designers here.
