  1. It’s the gold coloured waveform on the front of the chassis
  2. Bargain, I still have mine best sounding CD player I’ve ever owned or heard. GLWS
  3. You’ve got me, I am not as technical as you, the Aqvox does not seem to editorialise the signal from the cartridge (I have three mc’s that I seem to rotate randomly) . I’m going to put the new interconnect between pre and power and see how it goes. i appreciate all comments and feedback. Ultimately my ears will determine how it all ends up. best lars
  4. I’m no expert that’s for sure, but I have been led to believe that the Aqvox Phono pre is fully balanced, I am using wireworld balanced cable from the cartridge to the Aqvox and then balanced into the pnyx. As I said I’m no expert though.
  5. Expensive by my standards, but the reviews I’ve read all point to this being a really good cable. Still performance may vary from system so I won’t know until I try it. The suggestion of pre to power sounds sensible as then all components get a benefit. the phono is balanced all the way from the cartridge to the power amp.
  6. I just bought a length (yet to arrive) of a high performance balanced interconnect. My system is fully balanced source to amp. in the absence of a second length of the same high performance balanced interconnect, I am wondering where the new cable will be best used? Between my one of my sources (Dac or phone stage or 2nd CD player) and Pre-amp or between the pre-amp and power amp? maybe it doesn’t matter, maybe it does -I’d appreciate your thoughts. Buying a second length is not an option at this time. I can of course try it and let my ears make the decision, but my cabinet is tightly packed and its a bugger to swap cables around. thanks for reading
  7. I would love to try this with my Pnyx. I currently run Ayre comparisons ?
  8. Item: Auralic Vega Location: regional NSW Price: $1700 $1400 last price reduction $1300 including postage in Australia only, otherwise it goes on eBay Item Condition: has some minor issues, see below Reason for selling: got two of them Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: I bought this unit from eBay and it has a couple of issues: there is a dent in the base, it doesn’t affect sound quality though the control knob doesn’t click in for menu access, all menu items are however accessible from the included remote the display is slightly patchy This an awesome Dac which despite these issues still sounds awesome. There are tons of reviews on the web. This Dac beats any of the competitors I’ve tested including, bel canto, matrix and a whole bunch that have faded into obscurity. This unit came from the uk, hence the 230v designation. I have box, remote and manual Happy to provide more details on request I am open to reasonable offers Photos: Advertisements without photos of the actual item will not be approved.
