  1. Further information: For sale is my ifi itube (mk1). This is a really good thing. I used it as a tube buffer to create a warmer sound and i found the digital antidote and 3D holographic features were very nice bonus ways to tweak the sound depending on the recording. Another bonus is that it comes with the ifi low noise PSU, not the typical walwart. I’m selling because I have simplified my system and while I haven’t had this connected up for a while, I will now not be using it again. (So it’s going with the monoblocks, turntable, cables and floorstanders.) I’ve priced this to give someone the chance to try the worthwhile tweaks this amazing ifi unit can do. Thanks for looking.

  2. Further information: For sale is my Qutest DAC. Has many positive reviews and it is an excellent DAC IMHO. I’m only selling this because I decided to simplify my system to wireless active monitors which have DACs. Purchased new Jan 19 from authorised dealer in Sydney, have receipt. This lovely Qutest has been well isolated in a safe, dust free cabinet and is unmarked. Thanks for looking. Photos: Advertisements without photos of the actual item will not be approved.
  3. In the hope of selling the sub I moved it downstairs. I needed somewhere to place it and the only spot ‘out of the way’ was behind a sofa. Which gave me the idea, why not hook it up, an extra sub might just be a good thing. Well... it sounds amazing, floor and seat shaking . So it’s staying there!
  4. Item: Sonos Connect Wyred4Sound modification model Location: Sydney Price: $600 Item Condition: Excellent Reason for selling: NLR Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: For sale in my Sonos Connect with Wyred4Sound modification. This dramatically improves the sound quality. These units had a RRP of $1,399. This unit is classified as a “modern product” by Sonos (see photo) ie, is not a “legacy product”. I used this with a Isotek power cable and a Wireworld Supanova 7 cable into a Qutest DAC for very impressive results. You can check the reviews by John Darko both on the modded unit and power cable upgrade etc. If you know what the Wyred4Sound Remedy is, this model essentially has the Remedy built in. I used the Remedy with LPS with a standard connect and this model simplified my set up. The Remedy itself sells for over $500 and has been well reviewed. Comes with original box, power cable, 2x white RCA cables (never used). From the Deep Hertz Audio website: “The SONOS Connect is a fabulous product. Massive amounts of time have spent on design and It has one of the best interfaces around. It's obvious of the efforts put into the functionality of the unit, and not so much into the audio quality. This is where we come in! This is indeed a product worthy of a Wyred 4 Sound modification. We can transform this great product into a killer sonic bargain. Why? Because it's built well, has many bells, but no whistles. We will make up for the last 20% that makes the product a joy to listen to. This upgrade entirely replaces the mediocre Cirrius Logic CODAC and the associated high jitter clocks. The mod was designed to integrate the SONOS system into a high end audio system through an outboard Digital to Analog Converter. This new custom board is installed in the SONOS and directly converts the I²S into up-sampled SPDIF. This new ultra clean low jitter signal is now available through both the Coax and Optical digital outputs. The SPDIF output's sample rate can be factory configured to 44.1, 48, 88.2, and 96kHz. The sonic benefits are quite dramatic. An entire level of low level grunge (harsh) is removed from the sound. This improves the low level detail and imaging. The bass is now much tighter and controlled inner detail and transient attack are both greatly improved. It is important to note that the modification does not allow the SONOS to play high resolution files. It does greatly improve the sonic quality of the digital outputs. The upgraded SONOS Connect in our system streaming lossless ripped CD's over our 100Mbps network, is now a true high-end source. · High-end sample rate converter made by TI · Low jitter clock with less than .5ps jitter · Low noise power supply for the clock and SR · Micro processor controller · Input & output digital buffers” Photos: Advertisements without photos of the actual item will not be approved.

  7. Item: NAD M51 DAC Location: Sydney Price: $740 Item Condition: like new Reason for selling: downsizing to active monitor set up Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Well reviewed DAC. At this price IMHO this is a great sounding, fully featured DAC. The technical aspects are worth looking up, if you are reading then maybe you are aware. It has pre-amp capability and HDMI connectivity. Very clear easy to read display. Trigger on socket. I bought this new from Len Wallis Audio and have carefully repacked it in all original packaging including the double boxing. Pick up preferred.

And these look fantastic. Selling as I am moving to active monitors. The satellites feature Uni-Q drivers. The sub has an active and a passive driver (front and back) and is heavy.

  11. Item: My 80’s system Location: Sydney Price: $350 Item Condition: Good for age Reason for selling: Time to let go Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: For sale is my 80’s system comprising 6 items: 1. Denon DP30L direct drive turntable. This has the special Denon quartz speed calibration which reads the speed continuously via a magnetic reader inside the platter. It weighs over 10 kgs and was built to last. The tonearm is S bend with Ortofon Concorde cartridge (which was a great look in the 80’s IMHO). Stylus recent with less than 25 hours) The lid near the right hinge developed a small crack about 30 years ago, so I clamped two small perspex pieces either side and it’s been fine since. 2. Realistic STA-111 Receiver. This was one of the nicest receivers by Radio Shack. Slimline with digital preset search tuning, MM phono, tape monitor etc. Has midrange control as well as bass and treble and the knobs are all detented to give a quality feel. Weight suggests a sizeable transformer inside. There is also a switch on the back to tailor the sound when using Realistic Minimus speakers. 3. Realistic Minimus 7 speakers. There were one of the pioneering small speakers in the 80’s and feature full metal construction hence they still look and sound as they always have. There are slight indentations in the grilles and the Realistic badges fell off sometime in the last 35 years since I bought them from Tandy Eastwood. 4. Realistic cat no. 31-1987 5 band graphic equaliser. Works well and very effective, a lot of fun. One slider knob is a little loose but otherwise unmarked. I found the receipt, purchased 11 Dec 1981 from Tandy Eastwood. 5. Realistic APM-100 audio power meter. Very rare! From an era when VU meters were prevalent. There was something important about knowing how many watts were coming out, or maybe it was just watching the needles dance across the meters? 6. Sound Organisation hifi rack. Adjustable shelves, on castors. IMHO it looks good with the above. For sale in one bundle, it would be too hard to see it go bit by bit, hence the package price.
