  1. What wood and grill-type is your VO?
  2. A while ago ago I impulse purchased Clay's new TOTL DAC, leaving my Groß DAC is available for sale. There has been a lot written by owners here of Gieseler's DAC's (the full list being here: https://www.stereo.net.au/forums/topic/126626-gieseler-dac-reviews-impressions/). But just to give you a sample of what people have said about the Groß DAC: From Max Headroom: https://www.stereo.net.au/forums/topic/246058-ps-audio-vs-devialet/page/3/?tab=comments#comment-3899124 "At the other extreme is the Geiseler GroB DAC. I don't think I can find the words to explain how insanely good it is. @scumbag what system did you listen to the DS Jr and Geiseler GroB in? Did you say you couldn't tell a difference between the DirectStream and the Geiseler? Because the difference was so obvious to me and so dramatic its unbelievable. The Gieseler created more lifelike images of instruments and musicians, almost as if they're standing infront of you, better separation between instruments, better clarity with complex music. It's just a bargain at the asking price." From Rosco8: https://www.stereo.net.au/forums/topic/232237-gieseler-groß-dac-official-release/page/19/?tab=comments#comment-3872685 "A new Grob owner. It replaced a Cayin DAC (Valve/SS), and I also have an ARCAM-II DAC II, both quite good DACS, at least to my listening. Very pleased with the Grob .. been running a couple of weeks now, great detail and I can hear little nuances in recordings I haven't heard before. I listen to quite a range of material, from Tidal and FLACs I have rendered from my CD's. Beautiful rendering of vocals, good separation and detail."

That's right - a 2.3k or so DAC takes out, and make no mistake about it, the difference is not subtle, the much much more expensive Direct Stream with the latest software etc (I think its about $8k or so here in Aus)." From Conch: https://www.stereo.net.au/forums/topic/232237-gieseler-groß-dac-official-release/page/20/?tab=comments#comment-3886445 "I have compared the Groß to the Klein II, Chord 2qute and Accuphase Dac50 and the Groß has the edge over all of them imo. Better bass control, improved clarity, extremely musical and a natural tone that is engaging and enjoyable to listen to for hours on end with all genres of music." Adding my own 2 cents to the commentary, when I upgraded to the Groß from an iFi iDSD Micro, my immediate impression was how much 'more natural' or less digital the sound was from the Groß while detail retrieval was more extended at both ends. Needless to say that the Groß DAC is a truly excellent DAC and amongst the best Australian designed and made DACs made. The unit I am selling has been 'babied' since it was purchased and had it's firmware chip and software updated to the latest appropriate for a Windows based system. I'm sure Clay would be happy to provide you with the firmware for Linux or other based systems. The internal are set for XLR output but can be configured for RCA output (to resolve ground loop/hum issues). Included are the main DAC body, standard power supply, remote control (which never left it's packaging), and I can provide the user manual given to me and invoice of the purchase (PDF). Pickup is available in South Yarra, Melbourne and I am able to post Australia wide at your expense. Please don't hesitate to ask me any questions you may have. Reasonable offers will be considered.

  14. Item: Woo Audio WA22 Balanced Headphone Amplifier & Tubes (see below for details) Location: South Yarra, Melbourne Price: $2500 (including upgrade tubes) Item Condition: Very Good/Excellent Reason for selling: Not Enough Usage and need funds Payment Method: Cash, Bank Transfer, PayPal Extra Info: The Woo Audio WA22 is a fully balanced, Class-A triode driven headphone amplifier. This is a black unit with a stepped potentiometer which was manufactured in 2014 and remains in excellent condition. The current unit retails for $3799. For the last 2 years I have been deciding between this amp and my Violectric V281, however since I have shorter listening sessions these days (not letting the tubes warm up much) and my system is now permanently based around my PC (which introduces ground loop noise which tube amps are more sensitive to) I have leaned towards using the V281 more often. And as I'm not giving the WA22 proper usage it deserves, I have decided to put it up for sale. The images show how the amp is in great condition (save some dusting) and I am including my favourite bunch of tubes and adapters which cost me more than $700. The included tubes are a Cossor 5U4G rectifier, 2 x 2 RCA 6BL7 (matched quad) power tubes via adapter, and Tung Sol 6118/6SU7WGT driver tubes. I did a whole bunch of tube rolling to arrive at this configuration! I actually have a whole bunch of tubes I collected for this amp (5U4G compatible, and 6SN7/6SL7 compatible, 6BL7/6BX7 types) that I'm able to sell, so I could knock off $400 from the asking price by including a Brimar 5Z4GY rectifier and GE 6SL7 drivers, or I could stock you up with extra Cossor 5U4G rectifiers, or even give you a choice of drivers including Ken Rad 6SN7's, RCA grey glass 6SL7's, and Brimar 6SL7GT's. Best to PM me for details about those. Pickup is available in South Yarra, Melbourne and I am able to post Australia wide at your expense. This would also be a great match with the Gieseler Groß DAC that I am also selling! Photos:
