  1. Here's my minimalist setup, which is just how I like it. Marantz HD-DAC1 with a pair of Shure SRH940 and AKG Q701 (not shown). Connected to a MacBook Pro using Roon and Spotify. The PC is for occasional gaming. Both MacBook and PC connected to dual 4K displays. Excuse the dark photos, there's lots of afternoon background light.
  2. I've received a few PMs about mine. It's no longer available and has been taken by d3ft.
  3. I have one. Basically new in box and used once or twice only. Purchased to accompany an NAD receiver with Dirac live. I didn't keep the NAD because of infuriating issues with HDMI-CEC which I really needed to work properly in my setup. The UMIK has sat in the box since. I live in Brisbane. Happy to let go for $100 + $10 postage (aus post, signature on delivery). Can send pictures later today. PM me if you're keen. Cheers Chris
  4. Further information: iPhone 8 256GB in space grey. In perfect working order, supplied in original box with unused earphones, charger and lightning cable (as shown in pictures). Phone has always been kept in a black Godspery case that is included with the sale. It has never been damaged and has no marks or scratches, other than extremely minor evidence of wear and tear from day to day use. Device has been factory reset and all features such as find my iPhone have been disabled ready for a new owner. Add $10 for registered and insured post within Australia. Photos:
  5. I'd be mucking around with speaker placement, room setup etc before changing cables, DACs etc. I've had Monitor Audio RX6 and now a pair for Silver 1s (same generation as the silver 8s you have) and they do not exhibit what you are describing when setup properly. What I mean by that is when I was living in a townhouse and had them setup in a small room (with tiles no less) they didn't sound at all ideal and at times had an unpleasant edge to the highs. By moving the listening position forward and closer to the speakers the problem went away. I do note you said the sound is open, so maybe positioning isn't your issue, however I'd say have a play around with positioning to tame reflections and cover hard surfaces where possible before spending money elsewhere. If the problem is that bad I do not believe changing cables or the DAC will otherwise tame it - unless those components are faulty.
  6. Further information: Audioquest Dragonfly Red with storage pouch. Original owner. In excellent condition and working order. No longer being used. Add $10 for registered and insured postage within Australia. Photos:
  7. Further information: Marantz PM-KI Pearl Lite Integrated Amplifier (Silver) First owner. Purchased new from Len Wallis Audio in approx 2014. Has been faultless in the time I've owned it. Only selling as I purchased an amplifier with integrated DAC so its easier to use for others in the house. Outputs 70 watts x 2 (8 ohm) or 100 watts x 2 (4 ohm). Includes treble, mid and bass tone controls however these can be bypassed in direct mode. The amplifier can be set to operate as a power amp only. I had a Rega RP6 turntable connected as was very happy with the inbuilt phono stage. Very slight tarnishing on the top of the unit, as shown in the photos. A thorough review with specifications and measurements are here: https://i.nextmedia.com.au/Assets/Marantz_PM_KI_Pearl_Lite_Amplifier_Review_LowRes.pdf Supplied with original remote control and owners manual. As I no longer have the original box this pick-up only from Tarragindi (inner south side of Brisbane). Photos:
  8. Further information: Mac Mini 2018 (space grey) Core i5 (6 core), 256GB SSD, 32GB RAM https://www.apple.com/au/mac-mini/specs/ RAM is user upgradable which I did myself after purchase to 32GB. It was NOT purchased with 32GB from Apple. The original 2 x 4GB sticks removed from the Mini will be included with the sale (as shown in the picture). Selling as I planned to use in place of my 2014 MacBook Pro, however I still prefer the portability of a laptop and plan to buy another MacBook Pro instead. First owner. Purchased new on 27/12/2019 direct from Apple for $1699. 32GB RAM upgrade purchase was $209 from Computer Alliance. Both receipts will be included. In excellent / near new condition loaded with fresh install of MacOS Catalina. Supplied in original box and packaging with power cord.

  9. Further information: Shure SRH1840 open back headphones. In excellent condition, with only minimal use. I'm the original owner, purchased new approximately 2 years ago. Beautiful sound but they are not being used enough for me to warrant keeping them. Happy send via registered post with insurance within Australia for $10.

  10. I did a couple of years ago. I think I may have posted about it, but cannot recall. In short I recall the noisefloor being lower and it generally having smoother and more detailed sound. Dare I say more warm and much more enjoyable to listen to. At the time I certainly couldn't got back to the stock OP amps. Headphones were AKG Q701. I still have the M-Stage with the SS V5s installed in a drawer unused (I now use a Marantz HD-DAC1). I might consider selling the OP amps separately if you were interested - I know I've got the original ones around in a drawer somewhere.
  11. I also ordered from Dick Smith - they are listed as refurbished and a few days after ordering I got an email saying no stock until 24/1. I was weary they may not actually get stock (given they're not sourcing new stock) - so kept looking elsewhere.
  12. Harvey Norman in Cannonvale (far north Queensland) still have stock. I rang them and they confirmed they had stock and could post. Someone was meant to call me back to confirm postage costs to Brisbane and organise but they never did - I didn't follow up further because I found one (second hand) locally the next day. This was only last week - worth giving them a call.
  13. Item: JDS Labs ODAC Rev B Price Range: $40 Item Condition: New or Used Extra Info: As the title says seeking a JDS Labs ODAC Rev B, preferably with the original supplied JDS Labs Mini-USB cable (https://jdslabs.com/product/mini-usb-cable/) Thanks
  14. He's chasing a Chromecast audio - it has a 3.5mm analogue / optical output for audio only.
