  1. 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.

  2. 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

  3. 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

    • the control knob doesn’t click in for menu access, all menu items are however accessible from the included remote
    • the display is patchy reflecting the fact that the previous owner probably had it on 24*7

    that said, it 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.
