    FS: MicroRendu + Geisler Linear PS + Curious USB cable

    Yes A to B, not mini
  4. Item: MicroRendu + Geisler Linear PS + Curious USB cable Location: Perth Price: $850 Item Condition: Excellent Reason for selling: NLR Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Selling my Sonore MicroRendu streamer with an Australian made Geisler linear power supply and Curious USB cable (0.8m). The unit is in perfect condition and was purchased in Jan 2017 from Vortebox Australia for $786 + $250 for the Geisler LPS. The Curious Cable retails for $374. Only selling this package as I have upgraded to a PS Audio Direct Stream player. Total cost to me in 2017 was $1400, selling as a package for $850 The MicroRendu has been upgraded to the latest 2.6 Sonicorbiter OS. Nothing else needs to be said about this little box of audio wonders, very highly regarded and plenty of reviews on the net. The only blemish is some of the stick on rubber feet are missing, purely cosmetic and can be replaced easily. I would prefer to sell as a bundle but will split the items if necessary. Individual sale prices: MicroRendu: $500 Geisler audio and power products have an outstanding reputation and this LPS is custom made for the MicroRendu and much better than the usual iFi iPower 9VDC that most people pair with the MR. Sale price: $150 Curious USB cables are again very highly regarded and this cable helps tweak the absolute best out of the MR. The only slight blemish on the cable is that on one end the covering material is frayed so has been taped over, again purely cosmetic. Sale price: $200 This is a great entry package to the world of high end audio streaming at a very reasonable price. Plug into your network and your USB DAC & off you go. I would prefer to sell all three items as a package, but will consider splitting into separate sales if necessary. Package price includes postage to anywhere in Australia, split items will have postage done individually. Pictures:

    Mid end all in one DAC/Streamers

    My recent journey was a Schiit Ygdrassil DAC and separate streamers; a MicroRendu and a Moon Mind HD 180. The Schiit is a great DAC but not a streamer. The Moon Mind and MR are both capable streamers, the MR has a more reliable network interface and is Roon ready. The Moon had slightly better sound quality but the network interface was average and isn't Roon ready, but there was a Roon workaround. I have recently moved to a PS Audio DS Junior for both DAC and streaming duties. I am very happy with the unit in both capacities. I am not and never was into DSD so I was a bit unsure what the DSJ would be like, but it is great. In my system it is a little smoother, the Ygdrassil was a bit too revealing and played a bit brittle/harsh. The DSJ of course is an allrounder and for me is working really well. Enjoy the hunt.
  11. OK gotta ask the obvious. How does one come by a flagship Brand New In Box Never Opened AC receiver?

    Network player advice

    I haven't heard the Cambridge CXN, but a mate has the Bluesound and that works fine. In terms of how to connect, try all options and go with the best sound. Shorter/simple signal path usually sounds better. I would think the W4S DAC would best the DAC in the Bluesound, not sure about the CXN. There are heads of other options you could try. This is not a hard sell job either! But in my own system I have used a Sonore MicroRendu, Moon Mind HD180 and a PS Audio Direct Stream Junior. The DSJ is of course at another level and I will be staying with this for a while. But if you wanted to try either the MicroRendu or the Moon mind I would be happy to sell to you at a fair price. The MR only connects via USB, so your DAC would need a USB input. The Moon Mind can connect via AES/EBU, Toslink or Coax digital, but not both. Both these units can stream Tidal and flac files across the network and are well reviewed online. Happy hunting

    Shelf Speakers

    The Pioneer BS speakers designed by Andrew Jones are very good value for money.

    SOLD: FS: YAQIN SD-CD3 Tube Buffer

    Sale pending, under offer
  15. Item: YAQIN SD-CD3 + upgraded RCA NOS Tubes Location: PERTH Price: $150 Item Condition: VG Reason for selling: NLR Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Time to move on my YAQIN SD-CD3 tube buffer. This is a great little piece of kit to try out some tubes in a system without spending a fortune. Also included are a pair of NOS RCA 6SN7GTB tubes that have had very low hours + a pair of Sylvania 6SN7GTB (+100 hours) + the original Chinese tubes that came with the unit. I ran this as a line buffer in my solid state system between preamp & power amp to give the sound some tuby goodness. I have upgraded to a Schiit headphone tube amp & a PSAudio DAC which gives a really warm smooth sound so no longer need the buffer to warm things up. The SD-CD3 is an electron tube cathode output processor, which adopts excellent 6N8P double triode parallel cathode output. With high input impedance, low output impedance, wide frequency response and low distortion. Features: High-quality tube buffer processor for audiophiles to experience Hifi music. Durable aluminum alloy housing with logo window and steel heavy duty chassis. Adopts two excellent 6N8P tubes, wide frequency response and low distortion. Designed for improving audio system and adding tube audio quality to digital audio. Can be installed between an audio source and a receive to reduce work load of the receiver. Suitable for using with CD, VCD, DVD, MP3 players, computer, etc. Pictures:
