  2. I'd love the amps if you can post to WA please (at my expense). They will make a good addition to powering my home theatre. Happy to donate to SNA too.
  3. I'm interested in the SB Boom on it's own if you would contemplate a split sale.
  4. I'll take this please & just sent you a message.
  5. @Vinyl Junckie just sent you a PM with cost estimates.
  6. Item: SMSL M8 DAC + P1 LINEAR POWER SUPPLY Location: Perth Price: $150 + postage Item Condition: Excellent Reason for selling: NLR Payment Method: EFT, Paypal (+fees) Extra Info: The SMSL M8 offers a very linear sound that doesn’t add too much emphasis on either end of the spectrum. Sporting sleek and solid white aluminum housing, the SMSL M8 is easy to carry and boasts amazing features such as seven kinds of filter modes, an automatic jitter remove control switch, and an ultra-low noise power processing system. Utilising the Sabre Reference 32-bit ES9018 DAC chip and XMOS 32bit USB receiver chip, the DAC can support support 384KHZ / 32Bit and DSDx128 audio. Performance is also improved through the use of the P1 Linear Power supply, that provides 2 regulated DC outputs. It does run a little warm, but this is normal.

  7. Item: Analog to Digital Module PCM4222 192kHz Location: Perth Price: $75 + postage Item Condition: Excellent Reason for selling: NLR Payment Method: EFT, PayPal (+fees) Extra Info: I bought this module from a friend planning to build a high quality Analog to Digital stage but ended up buying a PS Audio NuWave Phono instead. The NuWave, which has received many glowing reviews, actually uses the same A/D PCM4222 chip, so that speaks to the quality of result you can expect with this module. This is an evaluation module, so it is built to the manufacturer's spec and only requires a power supply and your preferred PC interface (eg an I2S to USB module). You could use this module to digitise your vinyl or tape collection or even as an input stage for some of the great audio analysis software available. Current pricing is $235 + GST ($260).

  8. Item: Headphone Amp Breeze Audio Fphones / HA5000 Location: Perth Price: $50 + freight Item Condition: Good Reason for selling: NLR Payment Method: EFT, PayPal (+ fees) Extra Info: This is a well constructed and well powered headphone amp that is a great entry point into head-fi. The internals are impressive - R-core transformer, generous PSU caps, high speed diodes and socketed op-amps for easy rolling. It's incredibly quiet too - no hiss whatsoever on my HifiMan 4XX headphones. As far as I can tell, it is a clone of a HA-5000 headphone amp and the current model sells for USD$125 -https://www.aliexpress.com/item/32961988200.html Condition would be classified as excellent except for a couple of scratches (bottom of the front panel and the lid - see photos) Photos: Advertisements without photos of the actual item will not be approved.
  9. Item: MASSDROP X HIFIMAN HE4XX PLANAR MAGNETIC HEADPHONES + EXTRAS Location: Perth Price: $150 + Shipping Item Condition: Excellent Reason for selling: Funding other purchases / Not being used Payment Method: EFT, PayPal (+fees) Extra Info: These headphones were my first foray in to head-fi and live up to their reputation as being great value for money. I also made a longer cable (1.95m, longer than stock) plaited from from silver plated OFC copper and some high purity Russian cable and it added to both the top end sparkle and bottom end weight. This cable is included in the purchased. Also included is a set of grills, which apparently is a mod the 4XXs respond to well to open up the soundstage. Head-Fi forums have a lot of information on the headphones and mods, such as grills, earpads, etc. I purchased these locally from a poor chap who suffered tinnitus and found they did not agree with him. I've only used the infrequently as I tend to listen to my speakers more. As such, they have low hours of use on them & present as new.

  10. Item: Alex Cavalli Tube Hybrid Headphone Amplifier Location: Perth Price: $230 shipped (metro AU) Item Condition: Excellent Reason for selling: Retrospective funding of other indiscretions Payment Method: EFT, Paypal (+fees) Extra Info: I've had this amp for about 4 months and despite its sound quality living up to it's reputation it has had little use as use my speaker set up more often. I was using it with a set of Hifiman 4XX planars and it partnered really well. It can be used with normal (6.3mm jack) and balanced (4 pin XLR) connections also. It comes with the original switched mode PSU but I ran it with a linear PSU (not included) that produced a step up in SQ. Having a tube, you can also try some variants. In short, the base product won't disappoint and you have some extra gains to be had with some very simple tweaking. There's a lengthy thread on Head-Fi for your edification also - https://www.head-fi.org/threads/massdrop-x-alex-cavalli-tube-hybrid-amp-cth-dropping-monday.857673/ Current pricing on Massdrop including delivery is USD274 (a tad over AUD400). Original packaging is included so it can be safely transported. Photos: Advertisements without photos of the actual item will not be approved.
  11. I've known the @Dalspec for many years and can vouch for how well he takes care of his gear. Great deal here too - pick the cartridge you prefer and sell one off!
