  1. Item: Centrance Dacport (original) Location: Gold Coast, QLD Price: $120 (inc. post) Item Condition: Good Reason for selling: No longer needed Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, Direct Bank Deposit Extra Info: The original Dacport (https://www.soundonsound.com/reviews/centrance-dacport) which despite its age still gives an amazing sound. Ultra-low jitter adaptive USB interface and a warm, powerful Class A amp section. Have run this successfully with cheap 'n' cheerful low impedance cans all the way up to Sennheiser HD600s with no problems. My favourite of the truly portable USB powered DAC headamps. 24/96 compatible. Includes a 3.5mm > 1/4" adapter, ferrite beaded USB cable and postage in Australia. Pictures:
  2. They're all yours. PM me to arrange pickup.
  3. Item: Soundstyle XS heavy-duty speaker stands silver Location: Gold Coast, QLD Price: Free (consider a donation to SNA) - first PM or post here committing to take them will get first priority - pickup only Item Condition: Good Reason for selling: No longer needed Payment Method: Free, but you need to make local pick-up, I have nothing suitable to wrap them in Extra Info: Good, solid stands. Filled with washed river sand by me, so they're pretty weighty. A few light surface scratches and nicks out of the paint. I've tried to show this in the photos. Includes spikes and spike pads. I've also added some rubber domes to the top for a bit more isolation. Fixed with blu-tac and easily removable. Stands are about 580 - 590mm high. Top plate is 160 x 170mm. Pictures
  4. Item: Sony WH-H900N Wireless Noise-canceling Headphones Location: Gold Coast, QLD Price: $225 Item Condition: Excellent, as new Reason for selling: No longer used Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, Bank transfer Extra Info: Incredible noise-cancelling, Bluetooth headphones. Sound as good as the WH-1000XM2 (I tried them both). Can be used wired as well, if needed. Skip, pause, volume up/down touch controls on the ear piece. Quick silence and attention control to listen to people speaking to you. Sound is beautifully detailed and clear. Hardly used, in excellent as-new condition. Original box, accessories and receipt included. Purchased from JB Hi-Fi in May 2018. Full specs available here - https://www.sony.com.au/electronics/headband-headphones/wh-h900n Pictures:
  5. Item: Paradigm Shift A2 powered speakers Location: Gold Coast, QLD Price: $525 $425 + postage Item Condition: Very good Reason for selling: No longer used Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal (buyer pays fees), Direct Bank Transfer Extra Info: I purchased these on a whim after hearing some positive reviews, but didn't expect to love them as much as I did. Amazing little powered speakers with a sealed cabinet design for some astonishingly deep bass from a 5.5" woofer. RCA inputs on the back, so just hook them up to a volume-controlled source and you're ready to go. The sound is quite forward and energetic, but never harsh or shrill. Quite versatile as they're just as happy in a desktop setup as they are on stands in a larger room. Some minor surface marks above the tweeter on one speaker, but this was hidden behind grills most of the time. Original boxes with all original accessories - manuals, magnetic speaker grills, power cords - ready for postage Australia-wide. Contact me for a quote.

  6. Item: Focal CMS 40 Active Monitor speakers (pair) Location: Gold Coast, QLD Price: Sold Item Condition: Very good Reason for selling: No longer used Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal (buyer pays fees), Direct Bank Transfer Extra Info: These currently retail for $750 per speaker. Awesome active speakers that work beautifully in a desktop setup. They're front-ported so there's no challenge of rear ports and walls. When placed on stands on in a larger listening room, while the bass from a 4" woofer won't rattle the walls, you'll still be greeted with superb imaging and details, wonderfully expressive mid-range and smooth, detailed highs. Use these with my Nuforce HDP DAC/preamp with superb results. All original boxes and accessories are included: speakers, rubber isolation mat, angled spike feet, woofer grilles, tweeter phase plugs and power cords. Ready for shipping anywhere in Australia, although these are heavy (5.5kg each without boxes) so I'll need to get a quote first. https://www.focal.com/us/monitoring-speakers/cms/cms-40 https://www.audiostream.com/content/focal-professional-cms-40 4" Active 2-Way Studio Monitor from Focal Professional is a compact nearfield studio monitor ideal for use in home, project, or mobile studios. The reinforced and damped die-cast aluminum cabinet houses a 4" Polyglass woofer and an aluminum/magnesium inverted dome tweeter to provide realistic audio with a wide frequency response. Each speaker is powered by a 25W Class-AB amplifier for strong, distortion-free performance. A slotted bass port on the front of the cabinet helps to extend low frequency response. The monitor features XLR and RCA input connectors, making it easy to connect to a variety of sound systems and devices. It also offers a variety of volume, sensitivity, and shelving controls, allowing you to customize the speaker's acoustic response to match your environment. A unique base plate decouples the monitor from your table to minimize vibrations and reflections. It is also magnetically shielded for safe use near video monitors and other electronic devices.

  8. Item: Nuforce Icon HDP DAC / Preamp / Headphone amp + Coax cable Location: Gold Coast, QLD Price: SOLD Item Condition: Very good Reason for selling: No longer used Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal (buyer pays fees), Direct Bank Transfer Extra Info: This is a fantastic combo unit with a small desktop footprint. I had a few of the usual suspects in the budget desktop DAC/headamp/preamp space when I originally picked this up, and this was the one that made me stop looking. Drove a pair of HD600s and a set of Klipsch IEMs wonderfully, as well as serving as preamp for my Focal CMS40 active monitors. Oodles of detail, smooth treble and tight bass. Comes with power supply, cord, rubber stand and a bonus non-brand, heavy duty coax cable. Analog inputs (connect other analog sources and use this as a standalone headphone amp and preamp) Analog ouputs (to use as a preamp) Optical and USB digital input (24/96) Coax digital input (24/192) No original packaging but will be packed safely for post anywhere in Australia.
