  1. Totally agree. He's running a business. A lot of risk doing these auctions, never know exactly what you;re getting until you get it. Good luck to him I say.
  2. Interestingly, this Cdp also has a 24/96 Dac with coax and toslink inputs which reviewed quite favourably back in the day. Presumably the Dac still functions despite the tray problem. Sounds like a DIY guy in these parts could get that fixed. That said, a $185 starting bid might be a tad ambitious.
  3. Nice read Jeff. Yes, that Droplet is trying to steal the show...
  4. Those Phillips Special Quality E88CC tubes are magic! GLWTS
  5. Had the same unit a while back between Dac and the amp. Added just enough tube character without detracting from detail or clarity. A good way to dip a toe in the tube waters or to smooth out a 'bright' source for not much outlay. I went all tubes after this so beware GLWTS
  6. Agreed, often it's the thrill of listening to a rare find. I'm out of vinyl now but recently heard a DSD version of Furtwangler in Mono performing Beethoven's 5th which was worth it for the performance alone.
  7. I only go Mono for the historical performance aspect (e.g. early Furtwangler) and put up with the sound. Piano fares reasonably well though. There are enough great versions in Stereo to satisfy.
  8. In general, Yes it's worth it. Most Dacs handle DSD these days so it's just a matter of finding some files and seeing for yourself. I have a lot of SACD rips and Tower Records in Japan are still releasing some new SACD remasters that sound awesome.
  9. Indeed. I was bidding for a while but realised I didn't really need another amp. Winning bid was an outsider who jumped in at the last few seconds.
  10. The Bladelius Tyr integrated went for $1175. Not bad, guy wanted $1300 to buy now. https://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Bladelius-Tyr-Novitas-Mk2-Integrated-Amplifier-/153917211722?_trksid=p2047675.l2557&autorefresh=true&nma=true&si=YG7EBFSbPgdfIy5dRDg1zEUWUhQ%3D&orig_cvip=true&nordt=true&rt=nc
