  1. Item: Chord Hugo TT Location: Ivanhoe, VIC Price: $2,500 (firm) Item Condition: 9/10 Reason for selling: Full system change Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only. Extra Info: My beloved ATCs have sold so now it’s time to say goodbye to my Hugo TT. Bought from a fellow SNAer with a meticulous setup, at my home it has also been in a child/pet free environment. There’s no marks or scratches anywhere, I marked it as 9/10 only because it is not new. It is in absolute perfect working order and sounds phenomenal. I no longer have speakers to demo this, but it does work perfectly as several fellow SNAers have heard in the last week or two. Happy to post at buyer’s expense and insurance cost.

  4. If I negotiate by too much I fear it may end in divorce!
  5. Item: ATC SCM100 ASLTs (350w active towers) Location: Ivanhoe, VIC Price: $20,000 neg. Item Condition: 10/10 Reason for selling: Different direction Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only. Courier/insurance at buyers cost. Extra Info: When I first put these up I was selling them so I didn’t have to move them across Melbourne, but as it turned out moving them without the crates was no trouble at all, cost very little, and was completely hassle free thanks to some great movers. That being said, because I was sure I wouldn’t own them anymore I’ve already moved on with my system ideas. The speakers were ordered brand new by me from ATC in August 2017 via a UK dealer and delivered in December 2017. TNT delivered them into my apartment (see photographs) where they were unpacked. I have moved them once across Melbourne, but absolutely no damage was done. I don’t have the crates as the ATC crates were made to be completely disassembled around the speakers (it was all nails and glue, no screws). They come with quite thick blankets, and when they were moved the movers put additional blankets around them and moved them on a flatbed trolley – so it really wasn't that hard or tricky to move them. I of course have the manual, spikes, speaker grills etc. They sound phenomenal, but ATC has a cult following so if you’re thinking about buying these (or any other ATC product) you already know the sound and that you’re getting what you pay for. A bit open to offers, low-balling will just be a waste of both of our times though.
  6. Once the speakers sell, I'll also move on the Hugo TT and start a fresh. I'm thinking of going back to ATC bookshelves with a Luxman or Accuphase integrated, and adding a turntable. I've had a Clearaudio which was perfection, but I'm very intersted in the truck-like build quality of a SL-1200.

  8. Item: ATC SCM100 ASLTs Location: Toorak, VIC Price: $20,000 firm. Item Condition: 10/10 Reason for selling: Life (house bought, now need landscaping, minor renovations etc.) Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only. Courier/insurance at buyers cost. Extra Info: Hi everyone! All of the info is in the link from a few months ago. The market downturn worked in my favour to buy a house, but the tenants move out soon and some extra money would be nice when I move in. Nothing to be sad about, I'm happy to say goodbye to these beauties and begin the next chapter! Pictures:
  9. Yeah, it works on everything, all you need is to get the account made. After that, as many computers, phones, devices as you like (from my experience).

  11. I hope it's going well! Please make any additions if you think you can explain anything better than me, I just wanted people to know it's possible because it's pretty cool getting this music at high resolutions (currently listening to The Traveling Wilburys in 24/192). A few weeks in and everything is still working for me. I haven't had an issue via computer, iPad, or iPhone. I've also logged in through Audirvana and no problems there either.
  12. --- UPDATE --- So the answer to this is probably obvious to some, but it wasn't to me, but I did get it working. Step 1 - Use a proper VPN, not a web-based one. I used the free Tunnel Bear 500mb account. Step 2 - Set VPN to England. Step 3 - Make a new account (if you've tried and failed, you need to make a new account because Qobuz tracks where you initially make the account). Step 4 - Set up the trial or just subscribe, I used PayPal which had caused a geoblock issue before but not using this method as it turns out. Step 5 - That's it. Once it was set up, I turned the VPN off, and the account works perfeclty on other computers, ipad, iphone etc. Streaming 24/192 no trouble at all, even without NBN. There's not a whole lot of 24/192 to be honest, but there is a huge 24/96 catalogue covering every genre. Having done a lot of A/B testing from Tidal to Qobuz, to my ears and in my system, the 24/96 sounds wider and deeper than 24/96 MQA unfolded by Roon. Even without directly A/Bing, playing tracks I know well sound noticeably better through Qobuz. I'll give it a month or so to really be sure, but at this point I'll be saying goodbye to Tidal and won't resubscribe to Roon unless they have introduced Qobuz integration.
  13. For HDTracks, I use Opera as the web browser as it has a built in VPN (you have to turn it on in settings but it's there) - it'll get you by all of the geo-locks. This isn't one off either, I've been using it for a few years and buy an album every week or two. It doesn't fix the pricing increase on hi res, but does at least give you access to their full catalogue.
  14. Hi all, I’ve noticed that Qobuz is now streaming hi-res (up to 24/192) in FLAC and this seems much more interesting to me than MQA. For the record, I like MQA, but 24/192 FLAC is more appealing (especially as I don't have an MQA DAC). I know people have touched on this in years gone by, but has anyone had any luck subscribing to Qobuz recently? I used a VPN to make the account no trouble, but paying seems more difficult as Qobuz knows my VISA is based in Australia and PayPal seems to do something similar. Any experiences or suggestions would be appreciated! Cheers
