  1. Item: Furutech NCF Booster Location:Gordon Price: $420 Item Condition: Brand new in BOX Reason for selling: bought too many, didn't end up using this one Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal Extra Info: Great item for system setup, use to support power connector eg at power distributor, power outlet, equipment. Great addition for those seeking to optimise their system for vibration management or just relief strain on connectors with heavy cables attached. Performance was good in my system. I use a lot of them... Pictures:
  2. Item: TASCAM DR-100 mkIII Location: Gordon, Sydney Price: $465 OBO Item Condition: Brand new, opened box Reason for selling: Not required. Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, bank transfer Extra Info: Need to raise some cash so this has to go. Sen me a PM and hope we can work something out :-) Pictures:
  3. Item: Norne Audio Silvergarde S 9' Location: Gordon 2072 Price: $450 OBO Item Condition: Used, no damage cosmetic or otherwise, no pets or smoking Reason for selling: no longer required Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal Extra Info: Un-sleeved, 9 feet in length, Dual 3 pin XLR termination (Valab Carbon Fibre & Rhodium), dual runs, Sennheiser HD 800 terminations Very smooth for a silver cable, but also very good detail resolution. No sleeving makes this cable less prone to wear and keep in like new condition. Also looks less expensive for the W.A.F. Please keep in mind silver is 3 times the cost of copper. This is what is needed to get more detailed sound than copper cables. This cable is being offered at less than half the price I paid for it, intended for fast sale. Local pickup welcome, but can also be posted. Pictures:

  5. I wish I knew how. I will flag the thread in case mod can assist. Thanks I found the advanced editor.
  6. Item: Teradak ATX-350 Location: Sydney Price: $500 AUD (OBO) plus shipping if needed Item Condition: no physical blemishes, original cabling included, no functional faults, unit is running reliable and stable on last use Reason for selling: I have purchased the ATX supply from HDPlex and am using that one now. Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: I pre-ordered in November 2014, so warranty is probably gone. The unit runs quite hot, however runs stably in my experience, and runs much less hot than the HDPlex. Wiring loom is excellent, and I prefer the wiring solution over the HDPlex (although HDPlex solution naturally works better with their cases). One owner, used within stated power limits. I would recommend to check the stated power ratings for all the power rails against what your computer will use to ensure you are not over stressing this supply, even though it is very powerful PSU. It ran stably with my Ivy Bridge i7 3770k system with 2 SSD. Sound quality is far ahead from any switching power supply I have heard (previously used Corsair AX1200i).

  7. Any thoughts on qire for ATX umbillical? Is 16 awg solid core copper workable for such an application (may require tight bends inside case with 24x conductors)? Would contact resistance be an issue for terminations? I guess I could find out directly by trial and error but asking here might be easier and less costly.
  8. I saw Snakeoil a few pages back, had a look at the site and bookmarked. Seems worth checking out, I have a spare SSD lying around somewhere, and I would like to play around with IRQ. Also to get HQplayer working in some kind of headless setup using Linux. These days ease of admin is also a factor, but if the SQ is right...
  9. Good idea, hopefully the usb card will work in BIOS so I canget rid of the motherboard EHCI. I haven't yet tried to set up linux from scratch - I'm using Daphile which basically does everything but would not permit me to configure hardware to that degree (if I understand correctly.)
  10. I haven't attatched the button yet. Something makes me enjoy to see the switch pcb without the button lol.@@Chanh thanks, awesome music server, that is some serious workmanship. I like the wiring. I need to get around to rewire this case ideally do without the extra comnectors and use some nicer, more substantial wire (this case/psu comes with 20 awg wiring, not sure what type conductor, not teflon jacket). I had good luck before with the 16 awg valab SPC/teflon wire. I hope I have some spare connectors. Oh, and I have taken a dremel to the case already. On my motherboard the PCIEx1_1 slot is connected via pcie sharing chip and also shares IRQ with PHC SATA. Slot PCIEx16_1 is direct from CPU, but no easy way to do this without riser cable. I do not like riser cable. In the end the PCIEx16_1 still shares IRQ with one of the EHCI but the onboard USB are not used so hopefully not creating interrupts. Not sure I understand that correctly.
  11. I jave also tried to supply linear power to my switch. Unfortunately it made the sound better anf I am unable to return to a more practical setup. I should also mention that I have previously been using the Teradak 350W full linear ATX PSU. By compariaon this HDPlex resolves deeper into the mix and has more focus and speed, but perhaps more forward and dry. It runs extremely hot, much moreso than Teradak.
  12. Some great builds in this thread! Jsgrah just linked me to this thread, I hadn't been following but yeah amazed by thr DIY skill on some of these builds. I am not so skillend in DIY but have recently rebuilt my music server. Specs: 3770k i7, P7Z77-V Deluxe, low power 2 x 4 gB Crucial DDR3, Corsair Neutron OS SSD, Intel 3500 512GB music storage SSD, PPA isolation blocks with sorbothane decoupling sheets, sata3 spec (verified destructive testing - not many cables are built to the sata 3 spec!) 10cm sata cables, JCAT USB 3.0 pcie card, HDPlex H5 gen ii enclosure, HDPlex 300w full linear ATX psu (shipped last week) I have applied Dynamat to reduce resonance in the chasis. Photos attached hopefully
  13. Item: Wireworld Platinum Starlight AES digital cable 0.5M Series 7 Location: Sydney Australia Price: $550 firm Item Condition: Perfect functioning, small paint blemishes on end of one connector resulting from normal careful use (not visible when installed) Reason for selling: No longer need an AES cable Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: I recall paying $1000AUD when I bought this cable (August 2013, from Addicted to Audio). This is the highest model of the latest series AES cable from Wireworld, please refer to their marketing for more information on construction etc. My purchasing decision was based on the performance of their Platinum USB cable which I have found to be peerless. Wireworld recommend me to where possible use AES, and keep interconnects as short as possible without straining connectors. 0.5M is adequate when using components above one another on a rack with typical shelf to shelf spacing - on my rack there is 270mm between shelves and this works very well. It's probably also a good idea to ensure AES connectors at source and DAC are moderately well aligned vertically if possible. This might sound like a lot of hassle but IMO it was worth it to get the most out of my system, and I am personally not keen on having a mess of overly long cabling hanging all over the place. Thanks for looking. Please feel free to PM any questions Pictures:
  14. Item: Bel Canto Reflink (240V) Location: Sydney Price: $1400 $1200AUD O.B.O. Item Condition: Perfectly functional, small blemish on faceplate (see photos) Reason for selling: No longer needed Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: I used this as an USB to SPDIF/AES converter, however with Bel Canto DAC's the ST Fiber connection can be used. This box can be used to improve on the USB input, uses ultra low noise power supplies and femto clocks. Pictures:
