  1. Item: Grado Black1 & 8MZ Stylus Location: Sydney Price: $200 selling as bundle only Item Condition: <10 hours on Black1, <50 hours on 8MZ Reason for selling: Upgraded to Silver2 and MCZ Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Could this be a more perfect upgrade package for a vinyl beginner? Have a listen and find out! Let's get the elephant out of the way: you're buying this for the 8MZ. The only purpose the Black1 serves is to remind you how far you've come from an entry level stylus (and provide you with a body for the 8MZ). I've put low hours on the 8MZ because I impulsively bought the MCZ a week (A WEEK!) after I first got my hands on it. The 8MZ sounds like a maple syrup pancake - it's smooth, warm and sweet. While there is more refinement to be found in upgrading to a MCZ, the sonic character between the two are more similar than I'd like to admit. Moral of the story? Buy a 8MZ and stop before you spend too much on vinyl. All original packaging and accessories are included. I can ship these nation wide but would prefer to sell local due to the fragile nature of these items. Pictures:
  2. Item: Schiit Loki Mini EQ Location: Sydney Price: $150 Item Condition: Great, but spray painted Reason for selling: NLR Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: I spray painted this one black to match the color of my second audio setup which I've now stopped using. I still use one in my primary setup and I love using it to tweak the sound to match my mood. I don't have the original box but I can ship this nation wide. Pictures:
  3. Item: Dekoni Audio Pads for Focal Elear/Clear/Utopia Elite Velour & Elite Sheepskin Location: Sydney Price: $100 Item Condition: 2nd owner, both pads in great condition Reason for selling: NLR Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Bought these from a fellow SNA member for my Clears. Both pads have a noticeable impact on the sound compared to the stock pads. I liked the Sheepskin very much because they emphasize the mid-bass and brings out the bass tracks within the mix. The biggest improvement in my opinion however, are in the comfort department as these feel cooler and softer on the ear. Selling as a bundle only. Can post nation wide. Pictures:
  4. Item: Nagaoka MP-110 Location: Sydney Price: $100 Item Condition: <50 hours, all original packaging Reason for selling: Upgraded to Grado Silver/MCZ Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: As someone new to vinyl myself, this was my first substantial cartridge upgrade from the stock AT-95E. There's not much I can add to this cartridge's pedigree - it's accurate, musical and refined. All original accessories are included in factory seal. Can post nation wide. Pictures:
  5. Update: still available. Buyer unresponsive.
  6. On hold for stuckinhere Edit: Provisionally sold to stuckinhere
  7. Both on hold. mud_shark you're 3rd in line 😅
  8. Item: Schiit Wyrd USB Cleaner and Topping D30 (DAC) Location: Sydney NSW Price: $100 for Wyrd, $60 for Topping D30 Item Condition: Used Reason for selling: NLR Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Items merged to reduce thread bloat. Can be sold separately. Up for sale is a USB cleaner and a cheap DAC with 3 very practical inputs. All accessories and boxes available. Happy to post Aus wide. Pictures:
  9. Item: iFi Micro iDAC2 [SOLD] and Micro iCAN SE (headphone amp) Location: Sydney NSW Price: $200 for iDAC2, $350 for iCAN SE Item Condition: 2016 iDAC2, 2018 iCAN SE with A2A receipt Reason for selling: Upgraded to Schiit Gungnir MB Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Edit: iDAC2 sold. Title edited for clarity. Can sell separately. Buyers buying both will be given priority. 2 magnificent looking and sounding equipment. The iDAC2's Burr-Brown chip is probably my favourite sub $400 DAC chip (I've heard Sabre Pros and the Schiit AKM stuff). Great clarity, tone and very clean sounding DAC. iCAN SE was bought as a fun 2nd amp. The 3D and XBass switches are fun to play with depending on the mood. Both units come with all accessories. Can be shipped nationally. Pictures:
  10. Item: Metrum Acoustics Musette NOS DAC Location: Sydney NSW Price: $700 Item Condition: Used Reason for selling: Upgraded to Gungnir MB Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Up for sale is a discontinued Musette from Metrum Acoustics. Despite being their entry level NOS DAC, it used Metrum's 2nd gen in-house NOS chips which could compete with Metrum's first gen flagship. I bought this from a fellow SNAer as my first taste of NOS DACs. The extra smoothness and detail of the Musette was immediately apparent over DS DACs I've been using. Comes with original box and accessories. Can be shipped nationally. Pictures:
  11. Headphones are passive devices so balanced cables aren't going to make much difference in sound quality. They will provide more power though, but that's not a problem if single ended already provides enough power.
  12. Item: Audio-GD NFB-11.28 Location: Sydney 2220 NSW Price: $250 Item Condition: 10/10 Reason for selling: Funding upgrade Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: This well regarded Sabre Pro DAC/amp needs little introduction. Its sound quality can easily rival those using the same chip costing many times more. Happy to post this within Australia at buyer's expense. Does not come with jumpers or additional cables. Power cable is included. Pictures:
  13. Item: Schiit Lyr Hybrid Tube Amp Location: Sydney 2220 NSW Price: $300. Selling as complete set only Item Condition: 2nd owner, light scratches on top plate Reason for selling: Funding upgrade Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: I'm the 2nd owner of this set of gear. I wish to pass this on to someone else as a cheap entry into the magical (and expensive) world of tube amps. The Lyr was, and still is a powerful and versatile tube hybrid amp. I've spent many hours rolling tubes on this amp and here's some brief overview on each set of tubes' characteristics: Default 6N6P: Reasonably well sounding tubes. These are perhaps the most conventionally 'tube' sounding set out of the 4. The sound is slightly warm and gooey. 6B27: Slight mid-range bump to emphasize instruments and vocals. Details are about equal to the 6N6P. E88CC: HiFiMan your amp. Very relaxed, though detailed sounding set. Has a 'head in the clouds' feel. 6N1P: My personal favourite. Detail and speed are a touch below a Jotunheim without the treble glare. Very punchy and dramatic sound. Lovely stuff. Pictures:
