  1. Considering digital/wireless audio is the future for the majority, I'm surprised there aren't more options out there. For now the WXC-50 will have to do, for me at least. It does work quite well for the price, I recently switched to Tidal and I have to say, the 'Hi-Fi' streaming option sounds noticeably better than Spotify, CD like as described and a tad louder/cleaner.
  2. Item: Sansui MA-7 External VU Meters Location: Townsville (Message for shipping quote) Price: $525.00 Item Condition: Very good condition Reason for selling: Part of my father's Estate Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Very good condition, please see the photos for a good description of the condition. These act as external VU meters and are very rare. Please note the rack tabs can be removed. The item will be packed very well upon sale. If you have any questions regarding this listing, please message me and I'll be happy to answer them to the best of my knowledge. Pictures:
  3. My apologies, yes the CD player sold, I will mark the listing accordingly.
  4. Thanks for sharing your opinion 'The Gog'. I have experienced similar issues and am considering having the WXC-50 repaired under warranty as Bluetooth flat out refuses to work on any device I attempt to connect it to. The network works intermittently with my MacBook Pro though is largely fine with my Samsung S7, Bluetooth was the most reliable means of connection without input lag through changing the volume or general cut outs, but now it doesn't work at all and the unit is only two months old.
  5. Item: SVS SB-1000 Location: Townsville (Can freight) Price: $600 Item Condition: Excellent Condition (Used) Reason for selling: Surplus to needs Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: This is an absolutely excellent subwoofer, was using it with my Dynaudio Excite X12's however due to space constraints downsized that system and do not have space for the sub either. Sub is approximately 12 months old. Will come with its original box/packaging and cable. Feel free to message me if you have any queries, or for a freight quote. The box dimensions and weight are as follows: 462x477x485mm 15.3kg's Pictures:

    FS: HiFiMan HE-1000 Headphones

    Hi, sorry I forgot to update this listing, I sold them recently to HK. By the way you look like Nigel Munt
  7. After much reading elsewhere, I just purchased the WXC-50, it should arrive early next week, so I'll update this thread then of my impressions regarding its suitability. I hope you like your X14A's as much as I do, they are all I hoped they would be and more, they suit what I wanted perfectly. In the time being they are being played with a 2017 MacBook Pro Touchbar, which actually doesn't sound too bad, though I am expecting (hoping) the Yamaha to be markedly better.
  8. Hi everyone, does anyone have experience with the Yamaha WXC-50 at all? It seems to fit the bill as a preamp and/DAC/streamer for my system with a pair of Dynaudio Excite X14A, but I'm not sure whether it will be of similar quality to be doing the Dynaudio's justice. Please share experiences and opinions. Thanks in advance.
  9. Item: HiFiMan HE-1000 Headphones Location: Townsville, QLD, Australia Price: $1800 (+ Freight) Item Condition: Used Reason for selling: Deceased Estate (My father) Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: These headphones are in excellent condition, I am selling them on behalf of my fathers deceased estate, they sound absolutely excellent. They will include the original box and all cables as photographed. I am happy to send them, just contact me for a quote. Anyone looking at these and considering them will know what they are so I will save the sales pitch. Pictures:
  10. Hi all, I recently purchased a pair of Dynaudio Excite X14A's in Rosewood to downsize my system that included a pair of passive Dynaudio Excite X12. I have gone digital and sold everything from my old system aside from my SVS subwoofer that I am using in conjunction with the X14A's, though to be honest they don't really need it in many scenarios. Anyway, I have a 2017 MacBook Pro that I will be using as my source/transport depending on the solution that I/you guys come up with, I have FLAC files etc on the MacBook and am currently using the headphone output for the speakers, however this isn't a long term solution, whenever I take the laptop someplace I have to unplug the speakers which means having to turn them off to ensure I don't damage them, they have an auto standby function, however I do not want to rely on this. They are also being run through the subwoofers line in and out so that all the speakers get the signal. I am looking at some sort of pre amp, preferably with a DAC, to connect the X14A's and the subwoofer (if I so choose to use it) that has a power switch at the front, looking for options preferably less than $1000, whether second hand or new is not a concern. Would much prefer something that has a physical volume, this is for a desktop system. Hopefully my description wasn't too convoluted. Thanks in advance guys.
  11. Just a Samsung Galaxy S7 with some good choices about lighting etc.
