  1. I never tried the stand with my .7. In the short time I used them I thought they were pretty good already. I did buy a Rhythmik sub kit but never got around to making it.The whole lot has been in storage since 2015
  2. Item: DarkVoice 336SE OTL Headphone Amp Price Range: less than new price. Item Condition: New or Used Extra Info: Currently on Drop at the moment at $200US. I've read these pair well with 600ohm headphones so would like to see how it sounds for myself Prefer local seller in Victoria if possible. Cheers, Legs
  3. Good luck in your search. I have a pair of .7 for sale but not quite what you're looking for. 🙂
  4. A great buy. I had the Musical Fidelity A5 integrated and it was an excellent amp. Loads of power and very enjoyable.
  5. I don't always see my notifications so sorry for the late reply. I've upgraded my headphones and bought a pair of Beyerdynamic T1 mk2. Really enjoying them especially on an old Marantz esotec pm4 headphone output. As good as the Beyers are the HE400i are excellent value for the $320aud new I paid a few years ago. Had I been able to visit A2A recently I would have liked to hear other models up the hifiman range. In the meantime I'll enjoy the music and not think about valve amps for headphones. Having owned several speaker valve amps over the years I'm not liking my chances.
  6. Thanks Tezza. So it uses the main amp. It's a remarkably clear and detailed amp the pm4.
  7. Thanks. I didn't realise there is one. Handy to know.
  8. Hi, I have a Marantz PM4 Esotec amp. Does anybody know where I can get a free copy of the circuit diagram/schematic for this? I'm curious to know if the headphone input runs off the main amp circuit or a separate headphone one. It sounds great which makes me think it's the same as main circuit. Cheers, Legselevens
  9. Just to update I've been using the D10s as a usb to spdif converter and I'm very happy with it. Thanks for the suggestions.
  10. I still use audio alchemy gear. It's far more from perfect but it's held up to competition over 15 years worth of different dacs.
  11. @Gabehcuod I have the .7 magnepans that have been in storage for the last 4 years. They were used for about 5 months maybe less before having to store them. I've been thinking I should sell them so pm me if you're interested. They're in Melbourne in original packaging. I bought them from Audio Trends in Ringwood.
  12. Hey thanks for that. I'm keeping well. I've been looking into the Topping unit and it was a nose closer than the Gustard in my short googling efforts so far. Having heard your system in the past and the quality gear that passes under your nose that's a tick for the Topping.
  13. Thanks for the replies all. I'd like to try an Audiophilleo but none for sale at the moment. The topping d10 and Gustard look interesting. I also have the Audio Alchemy DTI pro32 which I imagine would improve the signal if fed from a lesser device.
  14. Hi, Can anyone suggest how I can get the digital audio signal from a laptop to an old dac that doesn't have usb input? The dac in question is an Audio Alchemy DDE v3 with coax BNC, toslink and I2s inputs. Googled image below.
  15. I bought an SP200 and it's very good. It livens up my he400i headphones. I'm still considering either a new dac or headphones but will enjoy the music in the meantime. Cheers for all the replies.
  16. I was content for years and rarely visited SNA but have allowed myself to get sucked back in. This time by headphone listening. Is there a help number I can call?
  17. Thanks for the replies all. I'm still interested in the sp200 and now the Geshelli. And of course further suggestions.
  18. I've seen this one on Amazon which appears to ship from within Australia. Can anyone tell me why it says Brand. Dilvpoetry? Are there other sellers in Australia I can try? https://www.amazon.com.au/Headphone-Amplifier-Technology-16Ω-600Ω-Balanced/dp/B07ZP2DV1S/ref=pd_di_sccai_1/358-0040364-1543065?_encoding=UTF8&pd_rd_i=B07ZP2DV1S&pd_rd_r=0081fb8c-16a3-4554-ac4d-3a74f70253fe&pd_rd_w=sH7Lj&pd_rd_wg=YqnDT&pf_rd_p=55ad0d17-3ce9-467c-85a0-12208940bbea&pf_rd_r=1EXGPZY83AF5F2WCHVNJ&psc=1&refRID=1EXGPZY83AF5F2WCHVNJ
  19. Thanks Bengineer. Schiit products, I had a Bifrost uber in 2013 but sold it on. It was good but I preferred the PS audio dl3. Horses for courses of causes. The Violectric v100 sold before I got to it so the search continues.
  20. Soundwise I like detail and clarity without being lean. I've not heard a ESS sabre dac that has interested me yet if that helps.
  21. I want to try the Senn HD650 again but many years ago I heard it at A2A and it sounded a bit congested and kind of muffled compared to the HE400 (not 400i). I'm wondering how it would compare now given I'm appreciating HP's more. Maybe it's worth a second listen. Another thing is the Emotiva DC-1 HP amp is my first HP amp and is meant to be well regarded so I wonder what options there are that would be a true upgrade rather than side step. I'd also considered SP200 and Atom amps. There's a Violectric hpa v100 for sale atm. Thoughts on this?
