    Preamp recommendations/advice

    There are two Aesthetix Calypso in the classifieds right now. Unless they've sold. Standard version ain't that far off your budget.

    Valve pins and sockets

    Personally haven't had a problem. Was told not to use Deoxit Gold on valve pins or sockets though. Incorrect application apparently. CRC 2.26 is what was recommended to me.
  5. No, it's all tube. Excellent phono stage

    Mobile System: Sprout100 plus what?

    Oh, I didn't mean anything to do with your Garrard. Just to use Tidal and ph for your source rather than using your Macbook and iTunes

    Or forget iTunes and get Tidal and stream from your ph to the Sprout via Bluetooth.

    Its performance surprised me tbh. I only used it with tidal, via bluetooth.
  14. Item: Dynavector 20X2L Location: Adelaide 5065 Price: $450 shipped Item Condition: Excellent Reason for selling: Will be upgrading Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Purchased from a friend of mine approx 8 months ago, it was his spare, and I have not used it since then as I haven't had my system set up for various reasons. When my system is set up I have my eye on a different cart. I've done my best to show the stylus Pictures:
  15. Item: PS Audio Sprout Location: Adelaide 5065 Price: 600 shipped Item Condition: Near mint Reason for selling: no longer needed Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Purchased from the Hifi Collector in the Adelaide Hills just over a month ago. I'm moving to Sydney and my belongings will go into storage for a while and by the time I get organised my main system will have arrived so this won't be needed. Please note this is the original Sprout which I preferred over the new one due to the Burr Brown dac and I don't need 100w with 97db speakers. A truly modern DAC with a fully integrated Class D 50 watts per channel amplifier. There are Phono inputs, USB Audio input at 192/24, Analog input, Wireless Bluetooth and a quality headphone amplifier within a surprisingly small footprint. Constructed of stainless steel, extruded aluminium, and walnut - this is superb value.
