  1. Just a question, is this the MK1 or MK2 of the Auralic Taurus Pre-amp? I'm running under the assumption that it does have the HP amp in it? Looks rather nice, I'd buy it myself if I had the money!
  2. When you have time, please let us know the results!
  3. I am thinking of buying one so I can bring it to compare to Clayton's new AKM 4499 DAC. I'm not expecting a giant killer here but I would be interested to see how different analog stages and power stages would affect the final product! EDIT: Should note that I'm not trying to insult Gieseler Audio. They've been rather good to me, with support of their products with I have bought. This is just for my own experience and knowledge building exercise.
  4. I can tell you that, in my case, it was more about me moving stuff around and trying new things! From the threads I've seen for Clayton's stuff on sale, most of it is this or condensing of setups.
  5. That plug is a TRRS plug, not the standard stereo TRS plug.
  6. I've used the Klein DAC III on my PC and as long as the sound is in stereo, it will work. Okay, it won't work with DSD I don't think.
  7. Wow, sounds like quite a large scale job, especially since you are basically a one-person operation!
  8. Hello @was_a, I don't doubt that the D70 does not have the 'chops' of the power supply or output stage that the Fein II and GroB has. If the exchange rate were more favourable to the Aus $, the D70 would certainly be more attractive I agree. I do think the Fein DAC II is sonically superior to the D70 though for people who are more price sensitive, Topping aren't a bad buy. Though I will say that Clayton's service pre and post sale and his warranty is unbeatable.
  9. Sorry for taking so long, fellow stereo.net users! I got busier than I thought I would be around this time of year. At least I get out of the house more. Anyway, I have listened to the Dx7 Pro extensively over the past month I've had it and for just $100 more than the D70, you do get a fair bit of improvement if the measurements on ASR are to be believed. At least in my experience, there is some definite improvements in the bass regions, certainly less boomy midbass on my LCD4 compared to D70. I also think the highs are a bit more pronounced on the DX7 Pro but suprisingly not sibilant as I've found other ESS Sabre DACs that I've had based on the 9018. Should note that I've haven't heard many more modern ESS Sabre DAC implementations so take my impressions with some scepticism.
  10. I should add that I have heard that HiFiGear.com.au will be updating their website soon with some new products including the Topping DX7 Pro, the D50s and the D70.
  11. Yes, it was an upgrade from older crossovers which I still have.
  12. Okay, in that case, I can sell to interstate or more regional buyers! Not just local pickup!
  13. Thanks for that @Richard Cranium! If they are good, I think I can use them to ship around Australia! As long as they pack the thing for me, I can deliver to one of their Service Centres!
