  1. Mute-on

    Tidal Holiday Offer

    Downloaded. My first streaming foray. Sounds great too! Thanks
  2. I’m a fan of Audio Principe for four reasons: 1. I really like their attenuated interconnects, as I find the 2.5V + outputs of most DACs and CD players don’t let my amps “breathe” 2. They’re good value, and not expensive to start with 3. They’re made right here in Oz 4. Peter Graves is a top bloke. Cheers J
  3. My speaker journey has been mercifully short ... 1987 or thereabouts - JBL TLX16 Around 2004 - surround sound with 5x Legend Joey IIs and a Kurlette sub 2015 - 2 pairs of Joey IIs and the Kurlette in use (in various 2 channel systems), keeping the 5th Joey II as a spare. Future - maybe some Legend Kurre or Kantu. Otherwise, I'm happy
  4. Following a recent positive experience purchasing from Peter, I thought the least I could do was to publicly express my appreciation for a local manufacturer who not only stands behind his product, but takes full responsibility for the buyer's interests. After Aussie Post successfully delivered my -10dB ICs to someone who wasn't me (under tracked Express Post no less!), Peter immediately offered to send another pair, no cost, and no assurance of ever seeing the first pair again (other than if the original recipient "did the right thing" and sent them to his return address). They arrived in less than 24 hours (interstate). That, ladies and gentlemen, is what I call service! The fact that the ICs sound excellent, and do exactly what I was hoping for in my system, is no surprise given the honesty and attention with which Peter treats his customers. Anyway, he's a decent, honest bloke and should be recognised as such. Cheers, Mute

    SOLD: FS: Kuzma Stabi S package (Price drop)

    Sent a PM enquiry and yet to hear, so I'm curious to know if there's an update as well. Congrats to the lucky new owner in any case. Cheers, Mute-on

    FS: Custom audio USB cable

    If there is another batch, or by some miracle others drop out, I'd like to get two! I'd much rather support locally grown ingenuity than commercialised product of (often) questionable value. Great job, AJ!! Cheers, Mute-on
  7. Prices dropped! Still includes 10% donation to SNA These were cheap before, now just plain silly Seriously, I think this is a pretty good deal for someone. Cheers, Mute-on
  8. Item: Designer black leather couch and armchair Location: Melbourne - SE suburbs Condition: As new - sat in maybe twice! Price: Couch $300 $270, Armchair $200 $180 Both $450 $400, Donation to SNA of 10% of sale proceeds Reason for selling: Never used and just taking up space - these deserve to be pride of place in a nice listening room (or any room needing a cool, comfy couch) Payment Methods: Cash on pick-up (local sale only) Additional information: All the cushions (base, back and sides) have zips to access seating foam, allowing easy replacement when required (or if you just want extra squishy cushions for those long listening sessions ) Kind regards, Mute-on
  9. Yes and yes ... Same outcome unfortunately . Hoping there is a trick I'm not aware of though!
  10. Yep, Arghh alright!! I dd try the off/on trick with no success. Welcoming other suggestions Mute-on (permanently I seems)
  11. You bet! Also showing in Audirvana+ preferences as the preferred device and the active device. Tried in bare iTunes and Audirvana+, with and without iTunes. The players play, see the DAC, but no noise she come from the DAC ... Open to suggestions, but I'm sure there is some trick that is particular to the combination. I have successfully had an M2 Tech Young playing for a couple of years, and with Audirvana, so I'm struggling to work this one out ... Mute (still) on
  12. Trying in vain to get sound from the new JK Ciunas DAC via Audirvana +. Seeking assistance from any users of this combo (while Mr Kenny gets some much deserved sleep ...) Please PM if available to call. Many thanks All! Mute(d - victim of my own joke;)

    Naim Audio

    Ahem .... My brief impressions here ... http://www.stereo.net.au/forums/index.php?/topic/52445-new-and-old/ Others in the thread have expressed their opinions, but I must add that my 72/140 s from the mid 80s and performs as new (with recap). Naim amplification will last a very long time so unless you need the newest all in one digital streaming DAC, may I suggest exploring second hand options. Check out the Naim forum for almost endless discussion on the differences between the newer black case gear, and the older olive. All the best. Mute-on
