  1. Based on your preference Grado GS1000, GS1000e and GS2000e are probably worth considering. They are over the ear headphones and are great for jazz and classical. The GS1000 can be have for pretty cheap second hand and is probably the pick of the bunch price vs quality wise if you can find a pair. For the price you are thinking, a cheap second hand Stax setup might also be worth a look. A 353X with some Lambdas? I quite like the Lambda Nova Signature, but they are quite rare.
  2. There is a left\right balance adjustment menu. Up to 3 db in 0.5 db increment. Don't know how well it works though.
  3. I think the only model within the ZX500 series is the 507. Sony usually uses the last digit in the model number to differentiate the storage size. I think the B after will probably be the colour, although I haven't heard the 507 with different colour. Both the ZX500 and the A100 series come with full Android with Google Service, which means Play Store, Netflix, Tidal etc. i.e. no need to side load apps. But I think only the official playback app have full access to all resolutions (i.e. other player like Poweramp might down sample to 44 kHz, etc). I have seen Tidal running in the A100 on demo in A2A Melbourne, which probably is just as well as it only has 16 GB internal memory. Both models take MicroSD though. I happen to really like the Sony's implementation of 4.4mm balanced output in the WM1A, so I am looking forward to the ZX507. I saw the listing on Sony Australia's website, just don't know if they actually have stock. A2A is generally pretty quick with Sony's stuff, so I was thinking either the first shipment have sold out or it is not in country yet if it is still pre-order on their website.
  4. Is the Z507 in country already. I know they are out in other territories. Last time I talked to A2A they said late January, so I assume they are not available yet. I am a big fan of Sony's stuff and have been using a WM1A since it came out. Really looking forward to the new player.
  5. The Fiio M15 and the Sony new Android Walkman the Z507 are meant to be available soon as well.
  6. Hiby and all the Chinese DAP like Fiio may not work out of the box. My understanding is they run Android but not with Google service, so no Play Store, Maps, etc. Sony latest Walkman (A100 series and Z507) does run full Android with Google Service and Store, so they might work. But they are USB C devices, don't know what converter you need to get data to function (might work straight away, haven't tried). Also don't think they will have GPS, so things like Map might be problematic. A100 is available in Australia and comes with a very cute case and graphic, I don't think 507 is in country yet.
  7. Item: 2 pin 4.4mm balanced IEM cable (for Westone, Noble, Empire Ear, etc) Price Range: Item Condition: New or Used Extra Info: Interested if anyone have a cheap 4.4mm 2 pin balanced cable for sell in Melbourne.
  8. The Aeon 1 is quite good, but his other stuff are ordinary. Hard to justify without demo.
  9. This amplifier can drive very efficient speakers as well, haven't tried it myself though. Very interesting little amplifier, have a very romantic sounds that is quite unique. Works very well with Fostex TH-900 and Audio Technic woodies. GLWTS
  10. Item: Campfire Audio Andromeda Price Range: Item Condition: New or Used Extra Info: Please drop me a line with any offer. Thanks.
  11. Item: Stax SR-003 Mk2 earphones, CES-A1 attachment Price Range: Item Condition: New or Used Extra Info: I am in Melbourne and looking for both these items. Drop me a line if you are interested in parting with them. Thanks.
  12. Sony WH-1000XM3 is well worth considering. Don't need an amp as it is Bluetooth, and sounds quite decent especially in the office where noise cancelling can come in handy. Can be have for around $400 easy new.
