  1. Ok, thanks for that. I am really looking to purchase a PS Audio DirectStream dac, so I will sniff round for the upgrade kit.
  2. Hi Rory - couple of questions: How long does it take the JC1s to warm up and come on song; How hot do they run? I am not sure if I remember this correctly but is there some facility to adjust the bias? Andrei

    What is this Music

    Thanks JJ. I might try the author of the clip.
  5. Here's a pleasant little clip from the Tube https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HuGzV7KRA1g I stumbled onto it as I was looking up Magico speakers. It is a happy piece of music but I cannot identify it. Anyone know?

    This is what I did with my Mk5g: I simply cut off the dreadful stock RCA plugs and replaced them with nice Furutech FT-119 plugs. They operate with Set-Screws - no soldering required. You can do the adapter thing to give some flexibility but in my opinion that can only be a half-pie job because you will always be stuck with the same (admittedly short) wiring from the PCB to the adapter! Further it is in principal better to have a single run of cable. Though TBH the sonic difference with one more solder joint is unlikely to be audible. If you had a Mk2 or a Mk5 (not the Mk5g) then a complete rewire is recommended. The reason is that prior to the 5g the capacitance of the wiring was too high. I think it was Kevin at KABUSA who alerted Panasonic / Technics to this. Speaking of KABUSA that is not in Melbourne but is an excellent resource for information, upgrades and spare parts.

    I have not heard the highly regarded Ortofon 2M range but that sure as hell looks good. One question though. I think I know the answer but please confirm; there is no headshell. Have you got a cartridge that does not need a headshell?
  8. What is the Bridge if I may ask?

    Pleased to hear that Diynamic. Great pic BTW - what was the shutter speed?

    Well done! I can confirm they are blindingly easy to use. One tip; even though it is new you should lubricate the bearing. I would actually take it out and put a couple of drops of good quality thick engine oil and work it into the shaft / sleeve. Then a single drop onto the thrustpad.
  11. The specific upgrade I did is no longer available (DAC2 to DAC2DSDse) but other upgrades are here: https://www.wyred4sound.com/products/upgrades-accessories-0
  12. I had this DAC - actually I still have it - I did the upgrade to the Second Edition. In both iterations it is stupidly good. I do not say GLWTS - it is more like a giveaway.

    SOLD: FS: Oppo 105 Darbee Edition

    GLWTS dude! If you don't mind, a question from a non buyer; have you had a chance to compare 105 and 205? I was toying with the idea of going for the 205 but the 105 is so darned good.

    SOLD: FS: LPM Upgrade for Oppo 105/105D

    Interesting! I see it is 'Surplus' Did you flog your 105?
