  1. Further information: This is a 24 bit / 192kHz tube DAC built from a kit based on an article you can read on Lukasz Fikus’ Lampizator website here: Link to Lampizator So this is theoretically a ‘Lampized Lampucera’ DAC. The list of features and specs is based on the current version of the kit. I purchased mine a few years ago so I’m assuming it’s remained unchanged, but please use my photographs for reference. Hopefully they’re clear enough for you to see what’s going on. Features 4 separated individual precision voltage regulator. High precision 1% metal film SMD resistors and metal capactors High grade op-amp AD827 x 3pcs for the output stage. A pair high quality RCA sockets for analog output. On board jumper to select the digital input ( coaxial or optical ). Input: Dual 15V AC (AC 15V,0,15V) Specifications Digital / Analog converters: PCM1798 (24bit 192khz DAC) Digital receiver : Crystal CS4397 Master clock jitter: below measurable levels Digital input: Coaxial and Optical Analog output: RCA 2V rms. @75 ohms As you can see this is a good looking unit, properly housed in an aesthetically pleasing enclosure with high WAF. You have the option of bypassing the tube stage and using the opamp version if you like. Includes SPDIF and Toslink inputs. This DAC is a great sounding component. It does what it’s meant to cleanly and without fuss. There is no hiss or hum or any unpleasantness when in use. Lukasz rates this design very highly. Power switch is on rear of enclosure with red power light visible through small hole on front face. Measures 210mm wide x 310mm deep x 110mm high. Happy to properly package and post to anywhere in Australia.

  3. Yes, apologies ... I haven’t shown the tray! It is however where Crystara has indicated.
  4. Item: Perreaux Silhouette SXCD Player Location: Adelaide Price: $650 Item Condition: Excellent used Reason for selling: No longer required. Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: This is a two enclosure unit that comprises a separate CD drive mechanism (based on a computer optical drive) and power supply / DAC. This unit is in immaculate, unmarked condition and performs faultlessly.

  5. I'm surprised nobody has snapped these up. I have a pair and they are pretty impressive for the price!
  6. Item: MiniDSP 10x10HD Location: Adelaide Price: $600 (plus postage) Item Condition: Excellent Reason for selling: Have purchased another DSP Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: I've been extremely happy with this unit. I read some comments about the noise floor on some MiniDSP boards but have to say this was near silent on my four way horn system. As long you have your gain structure set up correctly it's a non-issue. I'm really only selling because I've purchased the new DAC8 DSP from Okto Research to experiment with FIR filtering. This item is in excellent condition both aesthetically and functionally. $600 price on miniDSP 10x10HD unit only. Will require 12v power source. I have a good quality DB25 to 6 x RCA cable (see pics) I can also include for an additional $50. My Okto DSP came in a very well constructed padded carton (see pics) that I can repurpose for this item should an interstate buyer be interested. NOTE: This is still a current product so all the specs can be found on the miniDSP website. Photos: Advertisements without photos of the actual item will not be approved.
  7. I have a Mutec MC1.2 USB to SPDIF bridge in my system and it made a noticeable improvement to my digital front end. They make quality components.
  8. Come on people! It's sad there's no love on this forum for legendary vintage items like these.
