    FS: KEF REFERENCE 104/2

    Wonderful speakers. I had a pair that were wrecked by a "speaker refurbisher" in Sydney. I had to walk away from them after they "requoted" a $400 dust cap replacement to $1,200 when they found the job was "harder than they thought". At that stage they were in bits, and they weren't going to rebuild them till I came up with exgtra $$'s. Years late it still makes ma mad!!! I later saw they triedto to re-sell them for $2K on ebay. Shameless. (Sorry to hijack the thread......I can attest these will be BRILLIANT!!)

    I suspect StereoNet members keep 50% of Australia's couriers in business! GLWS.

    FS: Densen Cast Amp

    Hah! Yes huxmut - I suspect that's chalked up as a "win" for the Densen Marketing department, rather than the Engineers.

    FS: Densen Cast Amp

    Item: Densen Cast Amp + Chromecast Audio Location: 2257 - will post Price: $1500 FIRM Item Condition: Excellent - near new Reason for selling: Not using its full capability Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Densen’s “Cast Amp” includes a 60w / 120w into 8 / 4 ohm stereo amp, a high quality DAC and is designed to be used as an “all in one system” when teamed with a digital streaming source such as a Google Chromecast Audio – which I have included in the sale – and your phone as the control unit. Or…..use any digital optical source to power it. Better still, it can be used “stand alone” as a power amp using the analogue RCA input and a normal preamp – which was how I was using it. I believe this may be the only such unit in Australia, and it’s less than a year old and barely ben used. In the attached link it’s priced in the UK at UKP 2,895 – which is over A$5,000!! I purchased this direct from the Aus Densen importer, but in the end I was only using it as a power amp, so not really using its full capability. I ended up opting instead for a more powerful 200w / channel Class D power amp, so this Cast Amp is not being used. That said, its really wonderful sounding bit of kit – as you’d expect from Densen. No box (as I got it) but I will package it well for transport. $1,500 cost includes a near new Chromecast Audio puck, cables, postage, insurance and tracking inside Australia. Price is firm. http://densen.dk/index.php?page=densen-b-castamp http://www.8thdimensionaudio.com/product/densen-cast-amplifier/ https://hifipig.com/densen-releases-its-first-streamer-the-cast-amp/ Pictures:

  7. Yes Audiohifiaudio - where almost everyone else uses off-the-shelf chips in their DACs, Chord really go a mile further with their own Field Gate Programmable Array (FPGA) chips - a totally different (and probably superior) approach. https://chordelectronics.co.uk/product/qute-ex/
  8. Item: Qute EX DAC Location: NSW 2257 - Can post Price: $700 down to $650 Item Condition: Excellent Reason for selling: Bought Hugo2 Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Fantastic little DAC with a big reputation. Owned since new. Loved the Chord sound so I upgraded to a Hugo for about 4 times the cost. The Qute is 98% as good, so probably not a wise move by me! In excellent shape with box, power supply, USB connector. I believe it still has around 3 years warranty. Happy to post. Many excellent reviews, such as.... https://www.whathifi.com/chord/qute-ex/review Pictures:
