  1. Further information:This is the exogal comet plus which has the upgraded power supply it is a current model and has an RRP $4500. This DAC was designed by the genius guys who started the WADIA and splintered off to form there own company. It has a built in pre amp and can directly drive a power amp which is how I have been using it. It has both balanced and unbalance outputs. It can also drive a subwoofer separately if required. It can also drive headphones if that is your thing too. It comes with 2 remotes and apps are available for both android and IOS. This got stellar reviews in many publications including stereo net. It has been an editors recommendation in the absolute sound for quite a few years in a row. It sounds incredible and has a great analogue natural non fatiguing quality but with plenty of detail, spaciousness around instruments and very realistic sound staging. I have this paired with a Halcro power amp using it as the pre too and it is just amazing. I had a lot of other DACS before this one including Chord, Naim and Audiolab and this is so far ahead of those it is ridiculous. You would have to spend big bucks to better it and it would only be small improvements. It is one of those pieces equipment where you think I will just listen 30 mins to some music that always turns in to hours (much to the annoyance of my other half) and it is still doing this to me after a few years! It looks stunning and is incredibly well made. I have the original packaging but would prefer to sell locally. It covers most formats and does DSD and very high sample rates but most importantly it sounds amazing even with standard WAV. I have tidal which I run through Audiovana which handles MQA files and it sounds ridiculously good with these. It is probably the best dollar for dollar DAC you can buy in my opinion. Read the reviews - remember though this is the plus version with the upgraded PSU so it sounds even better! https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=2ahUKEwjw6K-SmO_qAhWQzDgGHW40CtEQFjAAegQIBRAB&url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.theabsolutesound.com%2Farticles%2Fexogal-comet-digital-to-analog-converter%2F&usg=AOvVaw3m7cMs1JmUUQAX8QVZ3RRc https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=2ahUKEwjw6K-SmO_qAhWQzDgGHW40CtEQFjABegQIAxAB&url=https%3A%2F%2Fparttimeaudiophile.com%2F2015%2F12%2F06%2Freview-exogal-comet-dac%2F&usg=AOvVaw1vUChRceIU4PIPWvfk5I6M https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=2ahUKEwjw6K-SmO_qAhWQzDgGHW40CtEQFjADegQIIRAB&url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.hifiplus.com%2Farticles%2Fexogal-comet-dac-and-ion-stereo-power-amplifier%2F&usg=AOvVaw3iI25ed6PExhBlYvVHBqQQ There are heaps more reviews on the net and the exogal website has even more.

  2. Further information:This is a really cool wooden parrot hanging light from belgium lighting firm massive. I still absolutely love this but just don't have anywhere to put it in our house.

  3. Further information:This is a stunning genuine mid century danish cabinet in brazilian rosewood purchased from great dane furniture many years ago. This is an awesome piece and I will be very sad to see it go as I have had it for around 15 years. It has beautiful burr maple veneer in the 2 compartments on the left and an ebonized shelf on the right and beautiful brass hardware. I have used this as a hifi cabinet at times as the panel on the rear at the right can be easily unscrewed this gives you the most stylish, well made hifi cabinet around. This is a vintage piece and has a few marks and scratches but is in very good condition (pics are very representative) and is a steal at this price. The dimensions for the cabinet are Width 117cm Depth 44cm Height 67cm R upper shelf Width 55cm Height 19.5cm Depth 43cm R lower shelf Width 55cm Height 13cm Depth 43cm R lower doored compartment Width 54.5cm Height 25.5cm Depth 43cm L upper doored compartment Width 55cm Height 35cm Depth 43cm L lower doored compartment Width 55cm Height 25.5cm Depth 43cm Pickup only from st kilda east/balaclava. will fit in most small hatches easily.

  4. Further information:This is an absolute steal but it needs to go as we don't have the space. This is made by high end designer furniture maker Poliform of Italy. It is incredibly well built and properly finished even at the back so it can be used as a free standing piece if needed even the sides of the drawers are expertly veneered in a beech. It is not some elcheapo rubbish from Ikea. It is a great media cabinet and can hold a lot of weight due to it's extremely robust construction. It has 2 large, deep drawers for storage. It is in a matt satin white finish and has very nicely detailed handles and feet. It has a few scratches and minor dinks but nothing too serious and still looks great, I have reflected this in the price but these were serious money when new. Dimensions are 150cm wide 60cm deep and 43cm high the drawers are 68cm wide 44.5cm deep and 22cm high Pick up only with social distancing from st kilda east/balaclava.

  5. Further information:Season 1,2,3,4,5,7,8 original dvds of Larry David’s genius comedy. I have also included series 6 as a digital as I couldn’t buy for some reason! Free postage on this one I just want them to go to someone who will enjoy them. It is one of the greatest sitcoms of all time and quite unlike anything else on the idiot box.

  11. I have an exogal comet + dac and it is a great match (also has a preamp built in ). This combo just lets you hear everything that is going with a realistic deep sound stage. The textures and details are there. What they say about low levels of distortion about the other halcyon amps is. Also true here it really is quite revelatory. I went from a musical fidelity a5 to this and it was like going from a cup and string to an iPhone. Still has the power but clarity finesse in buckets. I also was running it with a chord Hugo for a while and that also sounded great. I run tannoy xt8f which are a great affordable speaker and this combo controls the bass well with them. Don,t be put off by the amp being class d, this is class d done very, very well. There is a stereophile review of it which is worth a read. Bruce candy is genius physicist shame he stopped doing audio and made millions in metal detectors. Hope this helps Hi, I have run both with it and both sound great. It has a switch so you can flick between inputs which is awesome for comparison tests as my dac also outputs both. I currently audioquest Colorado balanced which sound great. Previously I had rca we’d ref40 which were were also great and a very good value cable. In some ways I preferred them to the Colorado’s. Good cables make a big difference with good gear. I have some acoustic revive speaker cables which also really opened up the dynamics of my gear.

  13. These are amazing amps and a steal at this price. If you have high quality gear to partner with it you will be amazed at what it can do. An affordable way to buy into the halcyon legend.
