  1. Honestly what is everyone in Sydney doing. You are effectively getting a pre/power amp for free at this price.

    What in Analogue Have You Bought Today?

    Has anyone picked up the 25th Anniversary Hell Freezes Over re-issue?

    Cambridge Audio CXN V2

    @Mike13, that is a nice idea but I'll admit to being a bit of a gadget wh**e. I thought you were going to swap the white Astors back with Evil C?
  4. I have the CXN V2 and I can't complain. I play from the Android Tidal app via Google Cast. Only minor complaint would be no gapless play back via Google Cast.

    The Best Value Power Cable on the Aussie Market !!!

    Which cable would you recommend for a network streamer and DAC? I'm assuming the blue series is best for pre/power amp?

    FS: Audio GD Reference 7

    Item: Audio GD Reference 7 Location: VIC 3012 Price: $1000 FIRM (plus shipping, but I'd rather not ship, too lazy and too heavy) Item Condition: Good Reason for selling: NLR Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Bought this over a year ago, hasn't missed a beat and is an absolute beast. The PCM chips inside (8 of them I believe) is worth more than the asking price. Sounds lovely, all that R2R goodness. Couple of nicks here and there, nothing major, I've tried to picture the worst of them in the third picture. Preference will be given to local buyers, I do have the box but will ship only if there is no local interest. It weighs quite a bit so not sure how much shipping would cost, but can always check.

    Darren69's stuff, to date.

    Thanks mate, it's getting there. Just wish I had more space ( I will next year when I have my own place).
  13. Usually you'd think the 'bang for your buck' factor would be relative to what you're upgrading from. When it came to DACS I went from a Modi Multibit to Audio GD Ref 5 to Audio GD Ref 7 to a Holo Spring DAC. The changes were noticeable but gradual, a little bit of more in every area. When I got the Lenenhans, my old hybrid integrated was struggling to properly drive them (60W into 8 Ohms), I had to turn up the volume for them to sound half decent, and even then it was a little harsh. My integrated could be used as a pre-amp, it used 2 ECC88 tubes I'f I'm not mistaken. And I picked up a DIY Holton power amp (150W into 8 Ohms) for very cheap and wow, the difference was night and day. Literally night and day. So moral of the story is I'd go with amp as well.
