  3. Of course, I have another member interested but if it falls through I will let you know.
  4. Hi I have recently purchased an Arcam Airdac. Is it possible to stream music through Foobar on my PC directly to the Dac?
  5. As per the ad, welcome to offers.
  6. Item: Nordost Blue Heaven Bi-Wire Speaker Cables 4m pair Location: Ipswich QLD Price: $600 ONO Item Condition: Excellent Reason for selling: Too short Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: For sale a custom made pair of Blue Heaven speaker cables. Custom made and terminated by David at Caxton Audio these are 4 metres long and terminated with banana's. Before the new Blue Heaven range was released David could buy rolls of Nordost Cable and cut them to custom lengths, there was a quite a saving. With the new range nordost no longer offers full rolls for sale.
  7. Item: Aura Groove Integrated Amplifier Location: Ipswich QLD Price: $700 ONO NEG Item Condition: Excellent Reason for selling: Surplus Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Well reviewed integrated that never really took off here in Oz. Has a lot of functionality with Apple products and PC ready but I don't know to what extent as I don't have an elaborate digital rig. These retailed for over 2k. Purchased new from Caxton Audio here in Brisbane, complete with original factory packaging and remote. http://www.6moons.com/audioreviews/aura/duo.html Finally out after a long wait, the integrated amp "groove" is the attractive component achieved by adding new technologies to the proven circuit design of the original Aura. 75W+75W output is secured by arranging MOS-FETs in a parallel push-pull configuration. With the fresh and warm feeling of an analog amp, the "groove" proves its true worth with a transparent modern representation. This unusual ability is greeted with disbelieve by many who hear it. Fanciers of the earlier Aura approve the new version as an authentic successor, especially when it so easily drives a low-efficiency speaker. A truly contemporary device, " groove" easily connects to iPod or PC with proper cable. You can always be plugged into the music with "groove." The basic circuits is based on old Aura VA50 but has been refined in further details, securing the newest specification on S/N and dynamic range, New power transistors have the same specifications as Hitachi's MOSFET J162 and K1058, but the large-sized toraoidal transformer and twin parallel push-pull output configuration yield more output power, 75W_75W. Aura's characteristic warm sound quality continues today by adopting the original devices, meeting the quality demanded by audiophiles with a Cirrus Logic CS3310 volume control, used in many of high-end products. Despite an analog-only connection, elaborate design with a view toward sound quality allows high-performance playback from iPod. The USB terminal for PC connection makes possible convenient play with high-grade sound from a hard disk. Features: Lustrous look Classic performance Contemporary features the choice for today's music lovers Specifications: Output Power: 75 Watts / CH @ 8 Ohms Power Output Stage: Para single ended Push-Pull Frequency Response: 10Hz - 45KHz THD: < 0.08% Analog Inputs: 4 Analog Input (1 balanced, 3 unbalanced) Analog Outputs: 1 PRE OUT, 1 REC iPod docking - via cable to rear panel connectors Digital Input: PC USB Link Display Device: 14 segment alphanumeric LED Digital Volume Control : Cirrus Logic CS3310 Headphone Jack Speaker Output Full Function Remote Control Dimension: W286 x D300 x H75 mm Wight: 15lbs
  8. Does that mean it is good for Phono cables? I am after a pair from my tonearm to phonostage.
  9. Hi Bill, are your RCA's shielded?
  10. I think these will go cheap https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/JBL-Studio-590-Floorstanding-Speaker/282713440818?_trkparms=aid%3D111001%26algo%3DREC.SEED%26ao%3D1%26asc%3D20131017132637%26meid%3D95c1546948f240d1bb35a6bdf319db21%26pid%3D100033%26rk%3D7%26rkt%3D8%26sd%3D162438993735&_trksid=p2045573.c100033.m2042
  11. Is this warping typical?

    Certainly not normal but definitely common. A lot of modern pressings are warped and I would estimate 1 in 3 I receive are warped like that. People can say its the way they handle it in postage or whatever but when I buy used records from the 70's they are rarely warped. I find it incredibly frustrating and IMO its the most annoying aspect of vinyl.
