  1. These should have a 5M ballast resistor on the output. The issue was with the early serial silver only units and the Woo Wee.
  2. Excellent DAC for its price. I have its flagship brother the Supreme and they share alot of similiarities.
  3. Price drop to $1350. Not sold within a week going to be disassembling it for parts.
  4. This wasn't Alans.
  5. This preamp needs no full introduction as it is one of the best tube dht preamps you can buy for its money so I’ll jump straight into the specifics. I’m the 3rd owner, the unit has had some TLC done to it. All resistors changed on the CCS boards, HT PSU etc where necessary. The cheap crappy CCS trimpots have been changed with US made Precision 10 turn 1k pots so forget about jumpy measurements with the default pots which are inaccurate. All electrolytic capacitors bypassed with poly and metalised films where necessary. Some boards cleaned up a bit but I’ll still be adding some final touches to it today (mainly just dressing it up and cleaning the internals). I have 3 Tram 2 preamps and will also be listing another unit later on. Lovely dht sound. Dead quiet. The Tram 2 comes with a pair Of Sylvania 45’s, 2 x 5U4G rectifiers and 2 x 6AS7G tubes. Also comes with original remote which I never used it may need to be programmed. All tubes tested strong to NOS readings on my AVO vcm mk2.
  6. Item: see above Location: Western Suburbs Melbourne Price: $1600 Item Condition: I consider it fair to good, some nicks and scuffs here and there, expect wear and tear. Reason for selling: surplus, need the funds for new house.

  7. If you’re buying used enterprise grade switches for audio beware most are managed and/or actively cooled so expect to hear some whirring noises from the internal fans.
  8. Don’t underestimate this amplifier due to its small footprint, had a wonderful long term demo experience with this amp and low Z headphones (Sony mdr sa5000 and Qualia 010).
  9. Damn very interested but I'd have to drive up to Sydney to pick these up.

  11. I don't think they have the right knowledge in what they are trying to apply to because anybody who knows how network and switching works will know that no matter how fancy the ethernet cable is, it will not make a lick of difference as long as its built right to the standards set and used for the past 30 years. Digital data transmission be it at a layer 2 or layer 3 switching/routing level doesn't care about the metallurgy or laser medium it is travelling on as long as its there. There are protocols implemented and programmed into the device to re-transmit lost packets, fragments of packets which carry fixed sized blocks of data. Analogue cables operate more differently and can be affected by length, capacitance, resistance, inductance, RFI/EMI design etc. 3 of the mentioned does not affect digital transmission. If these so called companies had experts with knowledge that stood out of the crowd they would be putting in a white paper design for approval by IEEE/ICNP because everybody would be benefiting from it. As a qualified EE and Network Engineer, it is an insult to me to see people over pay for crappy products that don't make a difference or work. Why weren't these so called audio switches released 10 years ago? Switches have been around for decades, 10 years ago we had network streamers and network DAP's. The answer to this is because it is a money grabbing opportunity because it is more popular nowadays. Also I'd avoid buying any of the Pang jitter modified switch. Overpriced, poorly built and does nothing, if you must need a low jitter clock attachment to a generic $50 switch for whatever reason one can be made with $20 worth of parts on a protoboard.
  12. Thank you. I've got a bit more. I'll be listing soon.
