  1. Headphone DAC/AMP with optical

    An interesting option but I did notice it was quite a bit more expensive. I was hoping to know of any good quality alternatives which have optical but I always keep coming back to schiit!
  2. Headphone DAC/AMP with optical

    Thanks for the suggestions. I did see this in the classifieds but I'm after the optical in as I have creative onboard sound which includes virtual surround sound which I use for gaming. So I'd run optical from the PC to the DAC/AMP to bypass the onboard DAC/AMP and just use the virtual surround sound features. The Schiit magni 2/modi 2 uber is looking like a pretty good option at the moment feature wise, just not sure if the sound would be right for me.
  3. Hi Guys, I'm looking for recommendations for an integrated DAC/AMP combo with optical in. This will be to use with my desktop PC. I'm looking at the schiit magni/modi combo but I've heard the magni is a little bright and sparkly. I currently have AKG K712 Pro and would prefer a dac/amp with a warmer, bassier sound which would tame any high end sparkle and bring out the low end. Looking to keep it under the $500AUD mark. Cheers.
  4. Item: Philips Fidelio X2 Headphones Location: Melbourne, 3006 Price: $230 + postage Item Condition: Very Good - Excellent Reason for selling: No longer used Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Very Good condition, just over a year old. They are a V shaped headphone, great bass and wide sound stage. I found them great for almost any type of music but especially bass heavy electronic and hip hop. They are also excellent gaming headphones, I found them amazing for positional audio, but also with the boom factor which helps with immersion. Very comfortable to wear and come with a detachable cable. Comes with original box and accessories. Retail price is $379AUD. http://www.minidisc.com.au/headphones-earphones/open-headphones/philips-fidelio-x2-headphones-p-1100791.html Pictures:

  7. Item: Mingda MC66-AE headphone tube amp Location: Melbourne Price: $200 negotiable Item Condition: Perfect working order Reason for selling: Downgrading head-fi setup Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Mingda MC66-AE headphone tube amp for sale. This is a great desktop amp solution and will drive high impedance headphones easily. Has been a great match for my HD650 and Fostex TH-X00's. I'm only selling due downgrading my head-fi setup to move towards hi-fi. The input tube in this has also been upgraded to a mazda tube (12AX7). Head-fi review/thread here. Personally I have compared it to the Schiit Lyr 2 and found this to have more warmth and bass. Its a great value for money headphone amp. It's in perfect working order and comes with power and RCA cables. Price to buy new is 449GBP but only seems to be available in the UK at the moment. Pickup only from 3147 AH or 3006 BH due to weight (over 5kg). Pictures:
