  1. Further information: I bought this unit in September 2015. I then purchased a much more substantial headphone amp and this was left in its packaging at the back of the cupboard. I have only taken it out once, which is to take these photos attached. It has decent reviews for a USD200 unit: https://www.cnet.com/news/upgrade-your-headphones-sound-with-musical-fidelitys-v-can-amplifier/ It is available for pick-up or else if you would like it posted to you, that can be arranged at extra cost (let's say $10 within Australia), it will come in its original packaging. Photos: Advertisements without photos of the actual item will not be approved.
  2. Hi Hugh, Welcome aboard. I was looking at the Buchardt speakers online the other day, it was the first time I had heard of them. I am Danish so I was immediately interested in them. Can you provide some thoughts on how they sound? Are you happy with them? Thanks Torben
  3. I know a lot of people who use them as monitors. I have some and they work equally well in a normal lounge-room type set-up
  4. I would like to buy some. I am in North Melbourne. Picking up makes sense, although I would need to plan for my next drive past Camberwell... I'll PM you with details and we can arrange a handover.
  5. You say this is a Dialogue, but the pictures are of a Prologue. Would you like to clarify?
  6. Hi, I'm interested. I'll PM you to see if still available.
  7. Hi All, I was wondering whether it might be worth starting up an Antipodes Thread where all comments/questions/comparisons can be logged in one place? EDIT Update...will start off by listing all the reviews I have read: Current Models http://www.digitalaudioreview.net/2015/05/antipodes-audio-dx-music-server-review/ http://www.digitalaudioreview.net/2015/08/antipodes-audio-update-entry-level-ds-music-server/ http://www.stereophile.com/content/antipodes-dx-reference-music-server#sOHd6roMyrOroWAT.97 http://positive-feedback.com/audio-discourse/audio-ramblings-the-antipodes-dx-music-server/ http://www.audiostream.com/content/antipodes-reference-series-dx-music-server http://www.audiostream.com/content/antipodes-reference-series-dx-music-server-part-2#VqkwxjgBEgm6S6Hw.97 Older Models http://www.6moons.com/audioreviews/antipodes/1.html http://www.audiophilia.com/wp/?p=12895 http://www.witchdoctor.co.nz/index.php/2013/03/antipodes-audio-ds1-music-server-review/ My DS: Next, I took delivery today of a new Antipodes DS (mk.3). This replaced a Mk.1. First impressions - very impressive! The first comment is that compared to the original DS, the form factor is at least 1 inch (maybe 2) wider, with some serious heat-sinkage on the sides. I guess the old DS used to get pretty warm, especially during marathon CD-digitising sessions. Please see the photo below. The second comment is that the power supply has gone through a big change, now it is about half the size of the unit as well. Mark Jenkins has previously described this as a hybrid PS. I notice that it has a fan to keep it cool. I don't have the old unit to do a side-by-side comparison, but all in all, I think this has driven a wider soundstage. Sound is not noticeably clearer than before, but bass has more weight. For those that can't (or don't want to) afford a DX, then the DS can perform a pretty good job, at least as good as a CD. (I'll let the unit burn in a bit more and then do a better comparison). I'm also keen to try the SPDIF connection vs the USB, to see if I can perceive a difference. I'm certainly very happy with the new unit, it looks like Mark Jenkins has come up with the goods again! Torben
