    FS: HiFiMan HE400i

    I purchased them new in Nov 2016. They haven't had a great deal of use as I have been trying a few headphones. I upgraded to HE560's in Mar 2018.

    I have also listed a pair of HiFiMan HE400i - I wonder which will go first.

    FS: HiFiMan HE400i

    Item: HiFiMan HE400i Location: Canberra Price: $330 (plus any payment fees) Item Condition: Excellent Reason for selling: Upgraded Payment Method: Post or Pickup - Cash, band deposit or Paypal (as a friend) Extra Info: These planar magnetics offer an engaging sound with good body, especially in the lower-mids, though I don't think they sacrifice clarity to do so. I have all the packaging and am willing to ship at buyer's expense. Pictures:

    SOLD: FS: Burson Soloist SL MkII

    Tried a few. Mainly Beyerdynamic T90, which worked well. Also Hifiman HE400i & HE-560, as well as Focal Elear (currently for sale).

    Maybe, that could be a damn long journey.

    FS: Focal Elear headphones

    Item: Focal Elear headphones Location: Canberra Price: $750 715 (plus any postage and payment fees) Item Condition: Excellent Reason for selling: Liked these so much I moved up the line to Focal Clear Payment Method: Post or pickup - Cash, band deposit, Paypal (as friend) Extra Info: These are very impressive headphones for their price. I am certainly a sucker for their engaging sound, and decided to buy Clears when a set became available. Nice design and quality build. Have original packaging and willing to post (at buyer's expense). Link to manufacturer's website: https://www.focal.com/headphones/elear/ Pictures:

  9. What connectors did you use for Firewire, given most DACs accept USB input?

    Final electrostatics

    There are one or two reviews of the 0.3s still on the net I think. I liked them enough to buy a pair (which I still have and will be selling soon - you are welcome to have a listen). Too expensive at then full retail of $4k but a great entry into stats. The next model up, 0.4, was full range but around $6 or 7k. In the 0.3, the smallish panel was supported by a dynamic driver for bass. This integration was ok. It was the speed and clarity of the sound that hooked me. They were not disgraced when compared to the ML CLS I owned previously. And I preferred the Finals to smaller Maggies I tried.

    Valve preamp

    Gee, you're likely to have pretty good synergy already! I run a tube pre-amp and ss power but ended this way by selecting the components rather than the technology. BTW, in a second system, I am about to connect a Primare pre to valve monoblocks. My comments probably not particularly helpful but the Primare is reputed to have a warm sound that I imagine people would be chasing with valves. The Primare definitely provided me with a smooth sound that I liked.

    SOLD: FS: Custom speakers - Big muthas

    Yes, Grafton would certainly be easier. Of course, I am biased but reckon they're worth the drive. The previous owner though there was enough value to do so (and at a higher price).

    SOLD: FS: Custom speakers - Big muthas

    C'mon, help me out. These speakers are literally in the middle of my room (waiting for a buyer).
  14. Did see Tony Williams in the list - a long way down though.
