  1. Adding a few pictures of the Cinema Round from the net after realising that my photography doesn’t do their justice.
  2. The SMS-200 is going to @chu, payment pending. Thanks guys.
  3. Diffusers have now been sold. Cinema rounds are still available.

Bought it brand new from Krispy Audio around two years back. Listened a few times before I put it in storage and forgot about it. I have the original packing so can post at buyer's cost.

  5.

  6. Item: Aesthetix Pandora Tube DAC+Tubes+Anti-Cables Location: Hills District Sydney Price: $2,800 $3,400 + postage (Current RRP $8,500) OR $2,500 + postage if you don't need the Anti-Cable speaker cables. Item Condition: Excellent without a mark on it. Original packaging and a brand new unopened remote still in bubble wrap Reason for selling: NLR. This DAC sounds so good! I was planning to have it upgraded to the Eclipse edition but couldn't afford/justify the $6,500 upgrade cost so I have upgraded to another DAC Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Bank T T Extra Info: The Pandora DAC comes with the optional preamp module which sounds very very close to the Aesthetix Calypso Preamp that I used to have (also sold on SNA). Tubes upgraded to NOS Telefunken 12ax7 smooth plates. Tubes had only a few months usage. Also included in the deal: Tungsol 12ax7 x 2 used Tungsol 12ax7 gold x 2 used Electro Harmonix 6922 x 2 used A pair of Anti-cables used (costed me over $400) I'm the second owner, bought it from an SNA member here. This is the probably the most musical DAC I have ever heard. Extremely emotionally engaging and brings soul to your music. Please see below as to how it compares to my previously owned PS Audio Perfectwave Mk2 with bridge: You are getting an unbelievable deal for the price asked! A few reviews for the Pandora DAC (Note that Aesthetix’s Pandora DAC is identical to the Romulus CDP minus disc transport): "This all-tubed CD player and DAC is one of the greatest bargains in high-end audio today. What makes the Romulus special is that it sounds so "un-digital," particularly at this price. Rather than sounding flat and congealed, the Romulus opens up the spatial presentation and gives instruments and voices room to breathe. The player has an expansive quality along with a sense of top-octave air and openness. The tonal balance is rich and warm in the bass, which, coupled with the treble smoothness, results in an immediately engaging and fatigue-free presentation. The Romulus doesn't sound "tubey" in the classic sense, but neither does it sound like solid-state. The design and build-quality are beyond what's expected at this price. If you have no analog sources, the Romulus can serve as a preamplifier and DAC with multiple digital inputs, provided you purchase the variable-output option ($1000). Thanks to an innovative hybrid analog/digital volume-control, there's no loss of resolution no matter what the volume setting." -Robert Harley, The Absolute Sound Golden Ear Award (September 2014) "Excellent dynamic impact and bass slam with sweet mids and highs." -Jon Iverson, Stereophile Class A Recommended "The Romulus is another home run for Aesthetix, combining innovative circuit design, premium-quality parts and construction, and first-rate sound. This player was never anything less than musically communicative and immensely enjoyable, even in the context of a cost-no-object system. The Romulus is a flat-out bargain at its price, and invites comparison with much more expensive players. In fact, I’d call the Romulus a giant-killer, offering one of the highest price-to-performance ratios in digital playback today". The Absolute Sound
  7. Absolutely agree mate. When I dusted it off and gave it a listen today, my wife walked by and said “you sure you want to sell it? It sounds so good”. Maybe the Pandora is just waiting for someone worthy. Haha.

  9. That’s one option, but the owners not willing to help with the packing and I don’t trust couriers to pack them well enough for such a long trip..
  10. ...smart idea...why didn’t I think about it
