  1. Further information: Has served me faithfully for around 4 years. Original Box, original remote and any other related bits I can find that belong to it. Photos:

  3. Thought a pic might help. While this shows Roon, there are many other solutions. The Roon Core catalogs the audio library/music files stored on a NAS/Hard Drive and assists in serving these up to your streamer. Roon Control is your remote control (App on your phone/tablet) for accessing the library and controlling the Roon Endpoint (Streamer). Both Wifi and cabled ethernet can be used to access your audio library and drive your listening. While Roon is great, it is likely one of the more expensive solutions given the cost of its subscription/licence. The
  4. Yep these speakers sound bloody wonderful. Bargain, bargain bargain.
  5. Item: AES/EBU or SPDIF of a short variety around 70cm. Price Range: $100-200 Item Condition: New or Used Extra Info: After a decent cable that’s not USB to give something other than USB a try. Currently using a Curious Cable. Wondering if I‘ll hear a difference.
  6. Further information: I am the original owner and have had this for around 3 years. Original boxes and manuals, shipping is available if required. Buyer to pay for shipping. I do have the Dynaudio centre stand for this speaker as well and willing to include this but at an additional cost. Photos:

  8. The Auralic Aries G1 is a great little machine (although not as small as the Lumin). I was looking at both these same units in my move from a Mac mini that was serving up my digital content. In the end I went with the G1 as the Lightning DS App felt a little cleaner (personal opinion,) it offers Wifi connectivity and the ability to plug in a USB powered external CD Drive and Rip music from this. It integrates seamlessly as a Roon endpoint if you don't want to use Lightning DS. I am finding I really like being able to look up from chair and see the cover art for the current song appearing on
  9. @evil c Can highly recommend the Aqua La Scala though by the sounds of it out of budget. R2R and Valve combination. If we ever get out of this bloody lockdown have a listen at HeyNow. The Auralic Aries G1 is also a fantastic Streamer. Dead easy to configure and operates seamlessly, Roon endpoint, Spotify connect, Tidal and your own library. Will rip CD's if you plug an external CD drive into its USB port. Cheers
  10. The Accuphase is still with me. Currently locked down here which makes things awkward.
  11. Hi All Currently I have a Curious USB cable as the interconnect between an Aries G1 and Aqua DAC. The only reason this is the configuration is my systems previous incarnation utilised a Mac mini. With the components involved I am wondering if anyone has explored the pro's and cons of the different digital interconnects and whether one type has advantages over another. Is one type technically better than another? Would there be a notable difference in sound? The options available are AES/EBU, Coaxial, Toslink and USB. I am leaning towards AES/EBU given my somewhat limited unde
  12. Hi All, Was very interested to see this thread appear. Kinda new to this topic and somewhat electrically impaired so forgive me if the update sounds kinda dumb. I have just read the article https://www.diyaudio.com/forums/diyaudio-com-articles/186018-gain-structure.html which I have to admit I don't fully understand and was hoping to clarify it in the context of my own setup....hoping this may clear up my understanding of things and wondering if I can achieve a nicer sound. DAC - Output 2.5V 50 Ohm Gain set to 0db Pre - Max Input Level 6.0V, Max Output 7.0V Gain
  13. @DSD_Fan Always happy to negotiate and you could move the the PS Audio on 🙂
  14. Further information: Top of the Accuphase line prior to the current model line. Exceptional sound and build quality. Only bettered by the current DC-950. Can be used as a Pre. Shipping is included in the price, insurance (which I recommend) is up to you. Comes in original double boxes with original documentation. Australian stock/model. Specs can be found here: http://www.accuphase.com/cat/dp-900_dc-901_e.pdf Photos:
