  1. Item: Sonos Zoneplayer S5. Model is predecessor to Play 5. Location: Annandale, Sydney Price: $290. Plus postage and Paypal fees. Item Condition: Used, in great condition. Reason for selling: No longer using Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal Extra Info: I've had this for years in my bedroom and it performed excellently. Well reviewed item on the internet. The Zoneplayer S5 was the model name prior to rebranding as Sonos Play 5. I understand there was no difference to hardware, just a rebrand. Sonos software is excellent. If you currently use Sonos, you will agree. Pictures:
  2. Item: Roku 4 4K video streamer. Purchased from USA Location: Annandale, Sydney Price: $60 Item Condition: Excellent Reason for selling: No longer used. Renovating. Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only. Can post in original box at buyer's cost Extra Info: I purchased this from USA so will need adaptor to fit Aus plug. 220v compatible. I bought it to access US content via VPN but never really got around to it. It can be used to stream video (up to 4K) from a home network or micro SD card. Telstra also use this box for their TV services, this is not this as it is not loaded with whatever software/system they use. Pictures:

  4. Item: Chord Hugo 1. Portable headphone amp/DAC. Curious USB link for Hugo included in sale. Location: Annandale, Sydney. Price: $1,100 for Hugo including Curious USB link. plus postage. Item Condition: Good condition. No visible marks. Reason for selling: I love this but I don't use it enough as a potable device. Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only. Can post in original box at buyer's cost. Extra Info: Hopefully needs no introduction, lots of positive reviews. Chord can't seem to do anything wrong with DACs/headphone amps. This is the first version of the Hugo. Darko review here. I purchased this from Len Wallis Audio as used. By the way, this is a nice match with the Mr Speakers Alpha Dog Headphones I am also selling. The Hugo had no problem powering them.

  5. Item: Mr Speakers Alpha Dog Speakers (stand included in sale) Location: Annandale, Sydney Price: $300 Item Condition: Very good, no visible marks. Reason for selling: Too many headphones, need to reduce in preparation for renovation. Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only. I have original box so can post to Australia at buyer's cost. Extra Info: Purchased new by me from Addicted to Audio. They are in great condition, I've looked after them. The stand that was included with the headphones, as pictured, will be part of the sale. The headphones were created by Dan Clark when he modded Fostex headphones, in this case the T50RP. It features the first 3D-printed housing for commercially available headphones. In my humble opinion I found the sound to have a deep soundstage, very neutral (particularly bass) and lovely dark background. But read the expert views here (Headphonia) who called them a masterpiece and here (Head-Fi) who compared them to Sennheiser HD600 and AKG K701. See pictures below, hard to photograph the dark cups, so if anyone wants another photo let me know. Pictures:
  6. Hate to pour cold water on your trip but I recently went to NY and found with the Aussie dollar at 70c there was nothing cheaper than what I would buy at home. I didn't even buy a record!
  7. Hi @braj I understand the modular aspect to this amp but just to confirm, yours currently does not have analogue inputs and no headphone amp. So you must be using it as a DAC with amp output direct to speakers?
  8. I'd suggest sending Auralic support an email. I haven't emailed them not about this problem you are having but about other issues and they have been fantastic with their answers. You may even get an email from the head of Auralic. I have read that this kind of problem can be due to a router for example. However I do experience occasional drop of link to Aries mini and/or to Aries Femto with what I would call a decent and recent router but I never used to get that for Sonos. So I do wonder if Auralic is to blame. Or perhaps they need a more powerful engine to run than Sonos say.
