  1. Item: Simaudio Moon Mind 180 HD Network Streamer + Swagman Labs 12v linear Power Supply Location: Perth Price: $800 $900.00 ONO Item Condition: Excellent Reason for selling: NLR upgraded Payment Method: Pickup or Post - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Up for sale is my Simaudio Moon Mind 180 HD network streamer with the Swagman Labs 12v Linear Power supply. The unit is in perfect condition and retails for $1,399 in Australia (Addicted to Audio). The Swagman Labs LPS retails for $125 USD. Only selling this package as I have upgraded to a PS Audio Direct Stream player. Total cost to me in 2016 was $1600 (approx.), selling as a package for $900. The MoonMind 180HD has the latest firmware and can stream local files as well as Tidal, Deezer and Internet Radio. The unit is well reviewed online and Simaudio is a high end manufacturer, this is a quality audio streamer/renderer. I have had both the microRendu streamer and the MoonMind in my set up for a few years and both are very good, but the MoonMind just shades the microRendu for SQ. The unit operates via Ethernet or WiFi, but Ethernet of course gives the best operation. From the web site: The best link between a Hi-Fi system and the network. Thanks to the MiND, take control and gain access to musical libraries. The MOON 180MiND allows you to to link music libraries to your Hi-Fi system in the best way possible. Gone are compromises between quality and practicality. Apple smartphone or tablet become the ideal remote control for a MOON system and allow to access music from your computers, NAS, mobile devices or internet. Tidal and Deezer ready. The 180MiND outputs signal via all types of digital connections (Toslink, SPDIF on RCA, AES/EBU on XLR) for compatibility with all DACs. It allows to reach the maximum sonic potential of a very high end sound system the same way it would do from an entry level system. Pictures:

  7. Item: Wyred 4 Sound Recovery USB Reclocker - Rev A Location: Perth Price: $90 Item Condition: Very good Reason for selling: NLR Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: This is a great USB reclocker or "decrapifier" that cleans up the USB signal going into your DAC. The Recovery is very well reviewed but please note that this is a Rev A model without the new board. The Rev A doesn't work with some DAC's so check the Wyred4sound web site or the online forums to see if your DAC would be affected. You can also get a board upgrade done through Wyred4sound to fix the issue. Will post at buyers expense and comes in original packaging. Apologies for stock photos, can get actual images if required. Once again, Wyred 4 Sound offers a fantastic audio product at an affordable price! Based on the success of the Remedy and known benefits of jitter reduction in a digital signal, we're proud to present the Recovery USB reclocker (or "RUR" as it's been coined on the Computer Audiophile forum). As it's name implies, the Recovery restores the original integrity of the USB signal. Usage couldn't be simpler: just insert the Recovery between USB source and DAC and instantly enjoy the benefits of a clean signal and much improved sonic quality. Pictures:

    I've tried a MicroRendu, a Moon Mind HD180 and a RaspberryPi running Ropiee. The Microrendu for the price is the best of these three. Moon Mind a slight edge in sound quality, but the MicroRendu wins by a mile in terms of flexibility and streaming options.

    $1500 what to buy.....USB or Ethernet based DAC?

    For $1500 doubtful u would find an Ethernet DAC, used Mytek Brooklyn would be rare as rockin horse ****. IMHO go for a Sonore MicroRendu streamer + good quality USB DAC, used wld save u some bucks. Then sign up for a Roon + Tidal subscription and you will be in music nirvana.
