  2. Hi, I would like to buy the cable if still available. Cheers, Steve
  3. I made the exact mistake as you with a cable I bought from bill. Almost broke off the RCA connector on my pi dac. When I finally, almost by accident, worked out loosening the plug enable them to slip on easily was much relieved. Had a few other cables that I had great difficulty with that now easily fitted. You learn something every day

  7. Have an idea it was JVC. Remember wondering why 2 identical turntables had 2 different "Brand Names"
  8. Item: Audioquest Dragonfly V1.2 Location: Wheelers Hill, Victoria 3150 Price: $60 Item Condition: Excellent Reason for selling: Too many Dac's Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: In great condition . Never had any problems with it. Purchased from Addicted to Audio in May 2016. Only selling as I have too many Dac's, including my recent purchase from Gieseler of their Klein 3 Dac, which I am very happy with. https://www.whathifi.com/audioquest/dragonfly-v12/review https://www.stereophile.com/content/audioquest-dragonfly-v12 Comes with a manual & original box. Also a bonus micro USB adaptor cable, but I never used it as a portable device so cannot verify it works ( not a genuine Audioquest cable) Prefer pickup, but will post with insurance at the buyers cost if no-one local. Photos: Advertisements without photos of the actual item will not be approved.
  9. Item: Audioquest Dragonfly Red Location: Wheelers Hill, Victoria 3150 Price: $175 Item Condition: Very good Reason for selling: Replaced by Klein 3 Dac Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: In great condition . Never had any problems with it. Upgraded to the latest firmware. Purchased from another SNA member a couple of years ago. Only selling as I have too many Dac's, including my recent purchase from Gieseler of their Klein 3 Dac, which I am very happy with. Has a couple of chips in the red paint on the back, but only a cosmetic issue. Comes with a manual & original box. Also a bonus micro USB adaptor cable, but I never used it as a portable device so cannot verify it works ( not a genuine Audioquest cable) Prefer pickup, but will post with insurance at the buyers cost if no-one local.

  10. It's not only the classifieds. Watching the discussion on The Klein 3 dac convinced me to purchase one a couple of weeks ago. Not that I am complaining, Very happy with it. A lot better than the Battery Dac & Dragonfly red that I also bought from SNA members in the classifieds last year.
  11. Thanks for looking into it. Should have kept quiet while I was ahead
  12. Thanks. I'm guessing Computers & Technology is one of them. I was well over a hundred a year or so ago. Dropped down to about 30 then & slowly got to 41. Funny enough my last post here I moved up to 42
  13. Hi, My post count seems to be stuck on the same number for a few weeks even when I've made a few posts. Only a minor issue, but just checking if it can be reset or fixed. Thanks.
  14. In conclusion, problem solved as noted earlier in this thread. Since I managed to re-activate win 10, I have no problems now running Musicbee & foobar2000 fine. However, I worked in the computer industry for many years & love playing around with different systems & configurations. Just had enough of Microsoft hardware activation issues. So next time I have the urge to fiddle, will give Linux Mint a go. Years ago spent a bit of time playing with Ubuntu, but apart from my Pi running Volumio have avoided Linux for a long time. Thanks to all who have given more ideas to play with.
  15. I have a similar setup, running Volumio on a rasberry pi with the Allo Boss Dac after reading Darko's recomendation. Also had the chromecast audio but sold it to an SNA member. Thanks for tip on MPD. Will check it out running on linux when I get a chance.
  16. My concern is how Musicbee & Foobar2000 in WASAPI exclusive mode would access the hardware. Does running windows 10 in a virtual machine in Linux Mint bypass linux & directly access the hardware via its own driver or does it somehow get have to go through linux drivers. To cut it short, would it sound exacty the same.
  17. Interesting. Another good suggestion. Can you run updates on win 7 or win 10 when running as a virtual machine on Linux Mint..
  18. Problem is solved I use Musicbee & Foobar2000 on a few pc's & neither run on linux. Should another activation issue occur & not easily solved, definitely will be looking at linux.
  19. Yes I saw that in my research, but until the activated PC message came up after keying in the win 7 key, was not confident it would work. Relieved when it did.
  20. Unfortunately, win 7 support ceases end of next month, so no more patches. Plus all the other PC's in the house are win 10 & supposedly win 10 with its ongoing development is going to be around for a long time.
  21. Sometimes good comes from what is initially bad. In fixing the activation problem, I found our two "3 license" family packs that microsoft sold at a reduced price for win 7 upgrades years ago. One of them I had only used 2 of the licenses. Was looking at purchasing a new win 10 license for a pc I had recently built. Lo & behold, I keyed in the unused win 7 product code & within a couple of minutes had a fully licensed win 10 pc. Saved me paying microsoft $160, all good.
  22. EaseUS ToDo Backup Free ||| Windows 10,8.1,8,7,Vista & XP ||| Backup & restore system / partitions https://www.easeus.com/download/tbf-download.html Just ensure to get the free version.
  23. Thanks for the tip. Much appreciated. Tried keying in the license for win 7 ( a 3 user family upgrade ) before I upgraded to win 10 & much to my surprise it successfully activated. No thanks to microsoft support. Now have to link all our win 10 licenses to their relevant microsoft digital accounts so this does not happen again. Cheers.
  24. Just off the phone from a microsoft tech. Total waste of time. A flat battery caused my win 10 license to deactivate. Tried to reactivate, then ran the troubleshooter all to no avail. Rang microsoft, only to be told I had lost my activation - an update from win 98 to win 7 to win 10 all paid over the years for because I had changed my hardware ??? After telling him I should complain to Microsoft, he said don't bother, they wont do anything about it. He said 'I should just purchase a new license," NOT likely. It all there in fine print in the contact he said. So much for customer service. Will have to investigate linux or the like for a new music server. One unhappy customer.
