  1. Never tried the DAC on the CXN. The Holo only made a slight difference from my Audio GD Ref 7 I had previously. Single biggest difference was the power amp. Had an integrated previously that could be used as a pre and introducing the power amp was a light bulb moment.
  2. Thanks Nick, I'll probably hit you up in 2021 for a pair of Maestros!

  4. Just my 2c, but I remember I had a similar issue back during the iTunes days. My music just wouldn't play in order of the album. Tried re-naming the file with numbers in front of them, it didn't make a difference. I had to right click and go into each file and put the track number in the metadata of the file and that solved the problem. Any CD ripped via iTunes didn't need that because iTunes did that for you.
  5. Thank you for all the appreciation. Thought process behind the set up was simple, best available (new or used) equipment I could afford. It's been a work in progress for about 3 years now. I wanted to limit the price per component at about $2k or under so that one component doesn't massively outperform the other, which I believe is the fundamental temptation of upgrading. I know at this point I can't possibly afford to go to the next level in terms of upgrading to get any meaningful improvement in sound quality. I'm still curious if/what difference the matching Modwright Instruments KWA 100SE would make to the system (I'm aware there's one for sale, no funds at this point in time unfortunately) but that's something I will explore in the next year or so. I'm actually very happy with everything, only other component I'd consider upgrading is the speakers. I've been in love with the Hulgich Audio Maestros ever since I heard them at the Hifi show back in 2017, again funds permitting. Other than those two, I might have tweaks here and there but nothing major planned at this point in time. Please feel free to leave your thoughts etc.
  6. So I finally moved into my own place, just renting for now but it's still nice to have my own space. Thought I'd share the music & movie set up. TT - Musichall MMF 7.1 Cartridge - Garrott Brothers P77i Phono - Avid Audio Pulsus Network Streamer - Cambridge Audio CXN V2 DAC - Holo Audio Spring DAC Level 2 V1 Preamp - Modwright Instruments LS100 Power Amp - DIY Holton Speakers - Lenehan Audio ML1 Plus R Power Conditioner - Isotek Aquarius / PS Audio Detect Cables - Lenehan Audio / Cardas / Nordost Soundbar - Yamaha YSP 1600 MkII TV - Hisense PX55 OLED Blu Ray Player - Sony UBP - X800
  7. Out of the box the motion handling is terrible and picture quality is average, but after tweaking the settings I've had zero issues with motion handling and the pictures are fantastic. Even the upscaling to 4K is fantastic. No issues with sport such as soccer, cricket and F1. Also no issues with movies and TV shows. Cannot complain. Side by side, the LG was a little better than the Hisense and the Sony a little better than LG. Didn't think the price difference was worth it so went with the Hisense.
  8. You probably don't 'need' to upgrade. I picked up the 55" version of the Hisense you're referring to. I was upgrading from a 2014 FHD Sony. Sure the Hisense wipes the floor with the Sony but my previous tv was 5 years old and was starting to develop dark horizontal lines. So for me it was a big enough and obvious upgrade in terms of picture quality. YMMV.

  10. Item: Knosti Disco Antistat Location: Melbourne Price: $70 Item Condition: Very good Reason for selling: No longer required Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Bought this a couple of years ago. Haven't used it since I got it. Comes with the box and whatever is supposed to be inside and half a bottle of the cleaning fluid. Local pick up only.

  11. Item: Pro-ject Debut Carbon Esprit Location: Melbourne Price: $350 Item Condition: Excellent Reason for selling: No longer required Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: I've had this TT for a couple of years. If you're looking to get into vinyl this is a superb starter deck. I've really enjoyed my time with it and as always I had the itch to upgrade. It comes with the box, manual, phono cables, power brick and some accessories, not quite sure what they are. The cart is the factory fitted Ortofon 2M Red. Probably had about 500 hours on it so plenty of life left and plenty of options to upgrade. The condition of the table is excellent. Other than the usual swirl marks on the perspex cover, there is nothing of note I can find. Local pick up only. Photos: Advertisements without photos of the actual item will not be approved.
