  1. Peppy is trying to downgrade, we should leave him in peace.
  2. Further information: I purchased this unit very recently from Odyssey here on the forum. I thought I could start a good headphone rig in the office but i am not a headphone guy it seems since I still prefer speakers there. The dac is excellent and the head amp is glorious, plenty of reviews. The unit comes with remote and all accessories. I can ship anywhere in Australia.

  3. Hello, I have advertised a Burson v2+, it was a long time ago for you so you are probably not interested but just in case.
  4. Thank you for the replies from both of you. I agree this is superb engineering made in Australia. I am not enough of a headphone person to keep it and I hope it finds a good home.

  7. Item: r2r dac Price Range: Second hand market value. My budget is roughly under $1k Item Condition: Used Extra Info: I used to have a Metrum Octave and miss it! Please don't forget to report your post as FOUND when possible. (You can now delete this text).
  8. Group buy, group buy for the slayer of all giants!!!!
  9. I am running 93-94dB efficient speakers. Could there be any hum/noise from the unit? Thanks
  10. Further information: I have owned and enjoyed this amplifier for nearly 10 years and all his functions work perfectly. You can find it technical details at http://www.accuphase.com/cat/e-302en.pdf. The amplifier sports top quality MC/MM phono stage and headphone amplifier. It can be used as preamplifier or power amplifier only. There is also a bass eq adjustment button. When I bought the amplifier in the UK, it was set at 220V. Internally it is possible to tap the transformer at 240V with a simple rewiring and I had this done by Class A audio in Melbourne. They also chan
  11. Further information: This unit comes with a new SD card with the latest v2.8 Software. I have not opened the unit but I believe this is a V1.3 version. The Gieseler MP17PSU power supply delivers 7V and is a good match for the Microrendu (https://www.gieseler.com.au/product-page/low-voltage-power-supply). I will pack well for postage.

  12. Can I ask you why you got all the original drivers replaced, were they damaged?
  13. How do the R8 and X7 compare in integrated mode, have you had a chance to listen critically?
  14. Good story! I have a modest LM211ia EL34 amp with some nice NOS tubes, makes my Wharfedale E50 sing like never before, best amp I have had with those.
  15. Hello Mark, Your mailbox might be full because I can not sent you a message. Me again hunting tubes! I am after a tube which contrast with the RCA I bought from you. My amp is quite laid back and I am looking for a more snappy and possibly forward in the midrange tube. After a quick search, I thought the Raytheon could be a good fit. If you confirm, I buy it! Regards Laurent
  16. How do the Yaqin and the Willsenton compare in terms of built quality and sonics?
  17. I noticed indeed a slight hiss/hum from the Willsenton amplifier when connected to my Doge 8 tube preamp. The hiss is not there when I use a solid state power amp so it is due to the Willsenton. The spurious noise is obvious in front of my speaker which are 93db efficient but not a worry at the listening position.
  18. From Stereo.net! I bought a pair of very high mileage RCA 6SN7 for $35 and $70 for the RCA JAN 6 SL7 GT. So they are definitively not NOS and they will probably not last for years but it was great to test.
  19. I have had one for a few months now and got the paint smell too! I noticed that with the stock tubes (KT88 version) it sounded much cleaner and better as a power amp. As an integrated it was very warm sounding with good bass and treble. However the mids with vocals (the benchmark) and acoustic instruments sounded grainy and I did not like the sound of the amp at that stage. I replaced the 6SN7 (the stock tubes seem to be of Russian origin) by some RCA smoked glass 6SN7 and it was a large difference for the mids, then I inserted some RCA 6SL7GT and again much more delineated soundstage
