  1. I’ll buy if you are willing to ship
  2. Item: Bel Canto Dac 3 Location: Central NSW Price: Open to reasonable offers over $1200 $1000 Item Condition: like new, in box Reason for selling: trying out various Dac options Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Wonderful sound, read the reviews to get a sense of the capabilities of this Dac . This is a 240v unit. To summarise: Neutral in its representation Wide deep sound stage Wide range of input options including SPDIF, AES/EBU, OPTICAL, USB i would be happy to consider a partial trade for a Auralic Vega, Benchmark Dac 2 or similar len Wallis has a bel canto Dac 3 currently list well above $2000! Its a poor picture I know, I’ll try to take some better ones in the morning. Pictures:
  3. Budget is $1500 - $1900 and I don’t mind buying used. I tried the Audio DG and it didn’t work in my system. DACs owned so far arcam irDac audio dg ref7 (I think) schitt gungnir (multi bit) matrix x sabre The matrix is closer to my preferred representation, bit it’s sound stage is not quite up to the mark. I’ve been thinking of either a used: benchmark dac2 gustard x20u bell canto dac2 or at a stretch a Ayre dsd Dac (matches my amp) The dac im trying to find will hang off the back of my oppo 105 which I use mainly for streaming, movies etc. My Ayre CD player (run straight into the Ayre 7) is my reference for the sound I’m am trying to achieve. Alas nothing has come close yet.
  4. I’m looking for a bit of advice. I am considering replacing my Matrix x Sabre Dac. Don’t get me wrong I don’t dislike it but I am looking for a (small) stepup in audio quality. key considerations are ability to throw a large deep sound stage (where it exists), tonal accuracy, ability to extract the last ounce of detail and conveying the natural ebb and flow of the music. Balanced outputs is mandatory, digital inputs should comprise the usual suspects spdif, fibre and USB. i am aspirationally rich and financially challenged, so price is another consideration. Please no recommendations for $5k DACs. i appreciate your honest feedback.
  5. Why are you all in Perth? Come to bathurst, great place to live and listen!
  6. Item: Accuphase T107 FM Tuner Location: Country NSW Price: $900 obo Item Condition: Excellent Reason for selling: Not being used Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only, direct bank deposit Extra Info: This is a top rated tuner from one of the most respected audio manufacturers. The sound quality is amazing, pulling in signals where some of my previous tuners have failed. Alas, I just don’t get the time these days to enjoy it. please note batteries need to be replaced. Willing to ship anywhere in Australia at buyers expense Pictures: stock photo
