  1. Item: Audioengine D1 compact DAC and headphone amp. USB powered also has toslink input Location: Coburg or Macleod Price: $130 or would consider swap + cash for Audioquest dragonfly red Item Condition: excellent used condition Reason for selling: change to something that works w iPad Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD. Happy to post at buyers expense. Probably $10-15 Extra Info: great-sounding compact dac. USB to 24/96 and toslink to 24/192. Plenty of reviews online but suffice to say I’ve been very happy with it and you will too. Have used to drive b&o H6, senn HD650 and 580, AKG Q701’s and Ortofon e-q5 iems. Don’t know ohms from adam but all sounded fantastic. Pictures:
  2. Item: Ortofon Rondo Blue MC cartridge Location:Coburg or Macleod Price: $400 Item Condition: excellent Reason for selling: Getting out of vinyl Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Post at buyers expense (pm for quote) Extra Info: I'd guess this has somewhere between 100 and 300 hours on it. It gets very little use, if I had more time to enjoy it I wouldn't be selling it. What attracted me to it and what I think you'll love about it is that it's such a well-balanced sound. It's clean and natural, detailed, dynamic and oh, so musical. It's real Japanese hifi for normal people. As an added bonus: it looks gorgeous. The blue Urushi finish makes it the best sort of audio jewellery (the sort that also sounds bloody good). It's from a smoke and pet-free home http://www.theabsolutesound.com/articles/ortofon-rondo-blue-moving-coil-cartridge-tas-199/ Pictures:
  3. Had one of these as my first "real" CD player. It was a mainstay in my system for years and I can heartily endorse it. (I’m tempted to by it for nostalgia’s sake but I haven’t played a CD for ages) great value spinner

  8. Item: Naim Unitiqute 2 24/192 With w Spotify Connect & DAB+ Location: Melbourne (Coburg or Macleod) Price: $1100 Item Condition: excellent Reason for selling: upgrade to new Naim Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Naim Unitiqute 2 with 24/192 playback and Spotify Connect capability in excellent condition. Sounds absolutely beautiful and only selling to upgrade to another Naim. includes hardly-used remote and original box/packaging and owners manual. Pick-up Coburg or Macleod or can pack and post Features - UPnP-enabled to allow streaming of audio files at up to 24bit/192kHz resolution from Naim Audio hard disk servers, network-attached storage (NAS) devices or any home computer - Integrated 30W per channel amplifier shares design DNA with iconic NAIT integrated amp - Supports a broad range of music formats: WAV, FLAC, Apple Lossless, AIFF, AAC, Windows Media-formatted files, Ogg Vorbis and MP3 - Six 24bit/192kHz-capable digital inputs (S/PDIF) to support optimum connection to external sources - Spotify Connect built-in to stream millions of songs from the world’s most popular streaming service - DAB+/DAB/FM radio module - vTuner 5* full-service internet radio - Multiroom & Party Mode compatible - iOS and Android Naim Audio app for intuitive control Technology & Craft UnitiQute 2 may be compact but it packs some serious audio technology within its elegant extruded and die-cast aluminium enclosure. Its digital audio performance profits immeasurably from literally decades of high-end digital audio and amplification knowhow. The integrated amplifier section of the UnitiQute 2 has been influenced heavily by the iconic NAIT range while it also benefits from Naim Audio advancements in digital streaming technology that won a Queen’s Award for Innovation in 2014. Its digital connectivity also means that as well as offering all-in-one functionality operating as a digital hub for external digital sources, games consoles or digital TV audio for example, it can also output its internal sources or external digital signals to an external DAC for even higher audio quality. Analogue audio connectivity is not forgotten either. Two analogue inputs can accommodate CD players or portable music players via rear panel phono sockets and a front-panel mini-jack. And a preamplifier output means that with the addition of an external power amplifier, or even a sub-woofer, UnitiQute 2 can become the heart of a very wide bandwidth audio system. And when you want to listen privately, a front panel headphone socket makes such selfishness all too easy. Pictures:
  9. If you don’t get takers here, perhaps try calling International Dynamics in Melbourne. I believe it’s still run by Alex Encel’s son, Sam and they used to keep a museum of sorts made up of his old kit. GLWTS
