  1. I use a Node 2 with my TV optical out and it works really well. It auto senses optical if you like or not. Streaming spotify via the app is easy and comparing it to my Mac mini streaming Spotify to my Geiseler Gross dac may not seem fair but it still sounds great. The Gross has a wider higher soundstage etc but I’m happy with just using the Node2. Pretty impressive for $500 2nd hand

    Pre amp choices

    Thanks, looks perfect. I was wondering if Earle did such a thing too?

    Pre amp choices

    I have a friend with an issue. He drives 2x W4S stereo amps and 4 x subs(stereo) via ua single input either a geiseler dac or Cambridge CXN v2. He was doing this using 2x pre amps with split RCA leads from the same source. His speakers are in a large room and he likes to control the volume in pairs, usually 1 pair louder than the other but not all the time. One of his pre amps has failed. He’s open to purchase new. My question is ....... is there a single preamp that can control 2 stereo power amps with different volume requirements?
  4. Item: Sony WH-1000XM2 noise cancelling headphones Location: Melb Price: $240 plus post Item Condition: 9/10 Reason for selling: NLR Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: These headphones are fantastic. Bettered my Bose QC35 in every way. Only used in flight. They are more robust than both the Bose and newer XM3 with full metal headband and Earcups and more comfortable than the Bose. No scratches or marks anywhere. Comes with case, cable, airline adapter and mini USB cable for charging. Bluetooth function is totally stable and N/C adaptable via the Sony app. Battery lasts for return flights Melb-LAX (28hrs) between a charge. Didn’t really notice much of a difference between these and the XM3. The XM3 are lighter. Pictures:

    New Kraftwerk 12v 4A PSU versions

    Nice work. Can the original Kraftwerk be retrofitted to these versions?

    Sony WH-1000XM3 deal

    I’m waiting to try the XM3 on a long haul. The XM2 with the metal headband are heavier and grip my head a little harder. The XM3 are a little more comfortable short term but I haven’t worn them for 14hrs straight yet. Both are superior to the Bose QC35 soundwise at this point.

    Leak Dynamic Pickup

    Hi, does anyone know where I can have one of these refurbished. I have a friend with one and he needs to record some 16” records.
  11. I’ll take one for my Gross, all silmac II version please. My serial No 22. How are are you going with Femto upgrade? I’d be keen to do that.

    KLEIN DAC SPECIAL EDITION

    I had a Klein SE for a couple years and it was fantastic. Ended up trying it in a friends system replacing a Pertetual Technologies P3 and he wouldn’t let me have it back!! ...... so bought a Gross. Both are fantastic bits of kit.
  13. I’ll take 4 if you’re willing to split

    Thorens TD-147 Plinth Refurb

    I’ll be interested to see how it turns out. I have a 147 Jubilee edition which possibly needs a new plinth.
  15. The PX range retailed for about $200 more than the CDP range in Oz. A couple google reviews between the 2 https://www.pianostreet.com/smf/index.php?topic=56115.0 https://www.google.com.au/amp/s/amp.reddit.com/r/piano/comments/4ggxba/casio_cdp_series_vs_px_series/
