  1. Item: AKG 7XX Headphones Location: Perth Price: $150 + postage Item Condition: Excellent Reason for selling: Trying other headphones Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Highly reviewed bang for buck headphones. I've not used them for very long as the head-fi bug has bitten and I am trying other headphones (planar) now. I made up a heavier gauge cable which further improved the SQ of the headphones and this included (last photo). Includes original packing. Pictures:
  2. Item: Heaphones Final Audio Sonourous III Location: Perth Price: $265 + Postage Item Condition: Good (see below) Reason for selling: Trying other headphones Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: These are well reviewed, closed back, easy to drive headphones. Some reviews & links - https://snext-final.com/en/products/detail/SONOROUSIII.html https://headfonics.com/2016/09/the-sonorous-iii-by-final/ https://6moons.com/audioreviews2/final2/1.html Current prices on-line are in the order of $500. The headphones are in good condition except for some slight degradation of the headband padding (see picture - zoomed in). The padding has much life left in it, but I'm highlighting it nonetheless in the spirit of full disclosure. Pictures:
  3. Item: Schiit Magni 3 Headphone Amplifier Location: Perth Price: $140 + freight Item Condition: Excellent Reason for selling: Not being used Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: The Schiit Magni3 headphone amp punches well above it's weight and there are numerous reviews attesting to this. One of the attractions to it is it's no frills approach - connect a source, select headphone gain, and you're away. It's a relatively powerful amp too, so it should drive most headphones with ease. Original packaging is included. Pictures:
  4. Agreed! A cheaper and very, very similar option is an internal XMOS USB - I2S board. In my Master 7, I replaced my Amanero USB with a DIYINHK board and it was a definate upgrade. I have the Singer SU-1 with regulator and cap upgrades and the internal XMOS board is not far behind. At USD90 it's cheaper and saves on the HDMI to I2S board & HDMI cable.

  5. Gone - pending collection today
  6. Item: Azur 640C CD Player - FREE Location: Perth (SOR) Price: $0 + donation to SNA Item Condition: Left channel not working, all else is fine Reason for selling: Don't use CDs any more Payment Method: Pickup only Extra Info: Had this in storage for about a year and it was fine. When I connected it up the left channel is not working. I stream everything now so it's not worth getting it repaired. Will only give it to someone local as I don't have packaging to ship it.

  7. Thanks was_a - looks like you have had a win!
  8. @was_a did you get your new DAC and what are your impressions? Thanks
  9. Awesome gear that will get all the Audio GD fanboys excited (present company included).... I upgraded my Master 7's digital board to the current spec (same as the new R2R7) and that's lifted it to a whole new level - worth noting that there is even more SQ to be had by this set-up.
  10. I thought Tidal Hifi was CD quality FLAC, so 16/44.1 lossless so you will be good on the Transporter. https://support.tidal.com/hc/en-us/articles/203055911-High-Fidelity-HiFi-Sound https://support.tidal.com/hc/en-us/articles/115005873485-HEOS
  11. Yes, should be exactly the same as it's a server function & will appear in "my apps". I don't use Spotify Premium, so I can't verify it's functionality unfortunately. Alternatively, if you're interested in Tidal, you can get this via the Ickstream plugin (http://ickstream.com/)
