  1. PRICE NOW REDUCED TO $3990 Tremendous value on offer here to the informed buyer...
  2. Item: BENCHMARK DAC3 HGC + SoundAffairs Linear PSU & Mods Location: Bondi Junction, NSW Price: $4350 $3990 Item Condition: Excellent (being conservative, see note below*) Reason for selling: Have gone 'ethernet'... Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: BENCHMARK DAC3 HGC. Black version. James Soh SoundAffairs external AC to DC Linear PSU and mods—Ultima Femto Clock, Ultima Voltage Regulator, etc. Have had the unit since March 2019 (bought new). Including retail for the unit (A$3700), the price of the PSU and mods (A$2200), double-freight and import duties via Singapore (A$600), overall retail price is ~A$6500. Reason for selling is that I am moving in a different direction with my sources & DAC, to networked audio over ethernet. This unit is USB-based. DAC comes with original remote. *Some might say the unit is "as new" given that the little nicks on the PSU were there when it shipped to me! However, since it's been modded I suppose technically the Benchmark unit itself is definitely not "as new". PAYMENT VIA PAYPAL ONLY. Well, if you're interested in this listing you probably have done your research already. This listing is not for just the highly sought-after Benchmark DAC3 HGC—as if that weren't enough—but for that unit extensively modded by James Soh of SoundAffairs in Singapore, including his all-important custom Linear DC PSU: Benchmark DAC2 family modification WWW.MYSOUNDAFFAIRS.COM For customer reviews, please click here Change the simple oscillator circuit that is used for the ESS9018 Sabre DAC with our Ultima FEMTO low jitter clock then replaced the critical... Even in its BASE retail form, the Benchmark DAC3 HGC is on a number of high-profile current 'best of' lists, including Stereophile's Recommended Components in its highest "A+" designation: Recommended Components: 2019 Edition Digital Processors | Stereophile.com WWW.STEREOPHILE.COM Digital Processors Editor's Note: The sound of any particular CD transport/digital processor combination will be dependent on the datalink used-see "Bits is Bits?" by Christopher Dunn and... Quite some cost, logistics and waiting times in orchestrating this combo I can tell you...here's your chance to leverage my expended effort and get hold of this setup, ALMOST NEW, with NO WAIT TIME, and at a STEEP DISCOUNT. ESTIMATED DELIVERY COSTS AROUND $120 INSURED. THE ACTUAL COST MAY DEPEND ON DELIVERY LOCATION. PICKUP IN SYDNEY POSSIBLE TO AVOID THIS, SUBJECT TO PAYMENT BEING SECURED AHEAD OF TIME (PAYPAL ONLY). Photos: See extensive pics. The small nicks are visible on the PSU pics.

  6. Item: MrSpeakers Alpha Prime headphones Location: Bondi Junction, NSW 2022 Price: A$ 490 (incl. postage if required). Item Condition: Used; very good overall, but some scuffs and minor scratches (see pics). Have only the single ended cable. NB: I DO NOT HAVE THE ORIGINAL STAND. Original box included (however some damage to box - see pics). Reason for selling: Back living next to accommodative neighbours who don't mind me cranking the stereo! (Largely because they enjoy doing same themselves...) Payment Method: PayPal or COD. Extra Info: These are wonderful, a great improvement over the Alpha Dog. Extremely comfortable to wear, not as heavey as Audeze cans.Great instrument rendering, deep bass, very fast. They isolate so well, perfect for travel or an office situation. I have the box and receipt too. Original Aus RRP was ~A$1400 I believe, although I bought these second-hand while living in the US recently. Pictures:
  7. Hello all I must confess I am here to flog a couple 'old items, to make way for new gear in the new year, woo hoo! That said, I will be having a good look around, and look forward to getting hopelessly roped into various debates...it seems to happen to me naturally given my mixed proclivities: I like digital AND tubes, I like chamber music AND heavy metal...who'd 'o thunk it? cheers 8thdegree (Jason)
