  1. The acting and production is incredible and the plot/story line is spine chilling. Amazing work by HBO.
  2. Guys - if you're interested in comparing the merits of one preamp to another open a thread in the relevant section of the forum. These questions are detracting from the sale of a very well priced and designed pre.
  3. LOL - love the reflection caught in the LCD screen! GLWTS mate! Love the track too! Sebastian Leger - oui oui!
  4. Nice system @Mhel! Beautifully laid out. What are your components? As an aside: good God man, invest in some single malt!
  5. Excellent speakers and a great match with the Vitus electronics. High resolution with lashings of musicality. Life affirming stuff!
  6. It looks like a good deal mate. Anything below 50% the street price of components is usually good buying. Make sure you confirm everythings in good working condition and enjoy!
  7. Item: Chord Hugo 2 DAC & Headphone Amplifier Location: Sydney, Northern Beaches Price: $2,500 $2,400 + $2,100 + Shipping + Fees Item Condition: 9/10 - Due to age Reason for selling: NLR Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: EDIT: Second price drop. This needs to go. A screaming bargain at this price. No use to me sitting unused. This is my second Chord Hugo 2. I absolutely love them. I sold my original one due to a change in role which saw me move from an office to an open plan working environment. It's a similar reason that sees me selling this one i.e. I'm in the process of launching my own consultancy which will see me spend more time at home, than I would working out of a clients building. The Chord theme continues in my main listening rig with Hugo TT2 & Blu Mk2 taking care of digital duties. I'll be leaning on the services of the more inconspicuous Mojo when out and about. You'll note that this is by far and away the cheapest Hugo 2 listed for sale on SNA (or anywhere for that matter). I was fortunate enough to pick it up at an excellent price and I'm passing that saving on to the next buyer. The unit comes with all original accessories. Move fast. This won't last. Price is firm.

  8. Finally...just installed them last night. Played a little with positioning, more dialing over the coming days. Will be deploying the DEQX PreMate Plus shortly to help with the room, along with a 3 meter run of AQ Oak. Despite the improvements yet to come they sound utterly amazing.
  9. Item: Rega RP8 TT + TTPSU + Funk Firm Achromat + Clear Audio Concept v2 MM Cartiridge Location: Sydney, Northern Beaches Price: $1,500 + Fees + Shipping Item Condition: 8/10 - See description below Reason for selling: NLR Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: I flirted with the idea of getting into vinyl a year ago but due to a combination of system constraints and time-pressure it's something I decided not to explore. I will be using a DEQX PreMate Plus for room and speaker correction shortly. This means that in order to experience the speaker and room correction benefits of the DEQX I'll need to rely on a digital signal. While I know I can feed the DEQX the analog signal from the RP8, the fact that it will go through an analogue to digital conversion, before going through the reverse via my DAC leaves me with a little bit of cognitive dissonance. This coupled with three little, inquisitive kids about the house means I've decided to put my vinyl plans on ice. This particular RP8 was purchased from Audioconnection via Ebay. I paid $1,800 for it. It comes with the following additions: -RB808 tone arm -TTPSU Power Supply -Blue Funk Firm Achromat -Clear Audio Concept MM v2 cartridge (condition and hours unknown) The turn table itself is in great condition, except for the acrylic cover. The cover has scratches and swirl marks and would need to be replaced. Ebay tells me you can get a lovely one for about $250. Unfortunately this unit does not come with factory packaging. I have factored in the state of acrylic cover and the lack of packaging in the price. I think it's bit of a bargain, but hey - that's just me! Pictures:
  10. Item: Wireworld Supernova 7 Optical Cable - 1 Meter (No box) Location: Northern Beaches, Sydney Price: $200 + Fee's + Postage Item Condition: Brand new and unused Reason for selling: Does not fit the input of my Chord DAVE Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: I purchased this Supernova 7 cable from Lifestyle store in November last year for $349. I wanted to use it between my Chord DAVE and USB/SPDIF converter. Unfortunately, the DAVE's optical inputs are frustratingly small. As a result, I didn't connect use this cable. The cable comes in its factory packaging. This is my second Optical SuperNova. I love them dearly. As far as the cable is concerned the Wireworld Supernova 7 is often held up as THE best value optical cable on the market. Many suggest that Supernova 7 is comparable to the AQ Diamond and Mapleshade variants. Pictures:
  11. Item: DH Labs Silver Sonic Revelation XLR 1M Location: Sydney, Northern Beaches Price $300: $450 + Shipping + Fees Item Condition: 9/10 As pictured Reason for selling: NLR Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: My first high-end cable the DH Labs Silver Sonic Revelation XLR's were my gateway drug to the world high-end XLR's. Three sets of cables later I'm now running AQ Wel XLR's. This particular pair were purchased from a fellow SNA'r and now it's time for someone else to enjoy them. They exhibit all the characteristics of a classic high end all silver interconnect namely stupendous resolution and clarity, with extension right across the frequency spectrum. I consider these XLR's to sit right at the sweet spot between a material upgrade and the slippery slope of diminishing returns. Currently retailing for $AU800.00 - grab yourself a fantastic cable. From the DH Labs Website: Six Pure Silver conductors in an interleaved helical array.Each conductor is individually insulated in an air-spaced, tape wrapped version of our exclusive Air Matrix dielectric. The result is a revelation offering "stunning dynamics", and more involvement with your music. The cable is covered with an attractive woven fiber jacket and meticulously hand terminated with our finest connectors. Many worthy manufacturers would classify such a combination of materials and construction as a "COST-NO-OBJECT statement product". Pictures:
