  9. Item: Burson Timekeeper Power Amplifier Location: Brisbane, QLD Price: $650 Item Condition: Good Reason for selling: upgraded Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Willing to ship interstate at buyers expense, "Couriers Please" service, available for demo in Brisbane, no returns/ refunds. Packaging: original included Age: age unknown, 2nd owner Specs: Inputs: Stereo 2 x RCA line level, Bridged 1 x RCA/ XLR Freq. resp.: 0 Hz - 50 KHz (+/- 3dB) Output power: Stereo mode 80W rms into 8 Ohm, Bridge mode 240W rms into 8 Ohm Operation class: AB Harmonic Distortion: 0.03% @ 1 KHz/ 8 Ohm Input impedance 20 kOhm Input sensitivity: 240 mV Signal to noise ratio: >98 dB Rated power consumption: 300 w peak Mains voltage: 110/ 240 v Overall dimensions: 255 w x 265 d x 80 h mm Net weight: 8 kg Additional info: the amp has a low hum/hiss, more than I would have expected for an amplifier at this price. It has been well described in the hifi press. Apparently it's worse in bridged mono mode. I would not recommend using this amplifier with sensitive speakers or for near-field listening.

  10. Item: Schiit Audio Saga Pre-amplifier Location: Brisbane Price: $300 Item Condition: Excellent Reason for selling: Upgraded Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Willing to ship interstate at buyers expense, "Couriers Please" service, available for demo in Brisbane, no returns/ refunds. Packaging: original included Age: about 17 months old, 1st owner Run Saga in passive mode for a convenient remote-controlled passive preamp that’s ideal for many systems. If you need to drive long cables, or want to add some “tube sound” switch it to the hybrid tube buffer—a serious buffer running on 200V rails with vanishingly low distortion. Saga uses a sophisticated microprocessor-controlled relay-stepped attenuator for perfect channel matching and zero distortion. You can hear it clicking as you turn the volume up and down. Frequency Response: 20Hz-20Khz, -0.2db, 3Hz-200KHz, -3dB (active stage) THD: <0.002%, 20Hz-20KHz, at 2V RMS (active stage) IMD: <0.002%, CCIR (active stage) SNR: >108db, A-weighted, referenced to 1V RMS Crosstalk: >-75dB, 20Hz-20KHz Output Impedance: 180 ohms Input Impedance: 10K ohms Gain: Approximately 1 (0dB) through either passive or active stage Maximum Output: >10V RMS (active stage) Inputs: 5 RCA pairs, selectable via front switch or remote Outputs: 2 RCA pairs, selectable via front switch or remote Buffer Stage: Hybrid push-pull tube-BJT buffer stage with equalized transconductance Volume Control: relay-switched stepped attenuator with discrete thin-film resistors , 64 1dB steps Power Supply: One 24VA transformer with regulated +/-100V rails, plus 6.3VAC heaters and 5VDC for microprocessor Power Consumption: 25W typical Size: 9” x 6” x 2” Weight: 6 lbs Additional info: includes both a Tung-Sol 6SN7 and a LISST solid state driver. Schiit refers to this as a "fake tube". Photos: Advertisements without photos of the actual item will not be approved.
  11. Item: Weiss DAC 2 D/A converter Location: Brisbane, QLD Price: $1200 Item Condition: Good Reason for selling: Upgraded Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info:Willing to ship interstate at buyers expense, "Couriers Please" service, available for demo in Brisbane, no returns/ refunds. Packaging: non-original, can be boxed up for shipping. Age: unknown, 2nd owner Specs: De-jittering: The DICE Firewire interface chip in the DAC2 uses a dual PLL scheme for clock (re-)generation. This yields a very high jitter suppression down to subsonic frequencies. Output, level control: The DAC2 uses THAT line driver chips with low output impedance and excellent distortion figures. Separate driver chips are employed for the XLR and the RCA outputs. The output level can be set in the analog domain in four coarse steps to accommodate for the subsequent amplifier. Fine tuning of the level can be done via the digital level control which is operated via the front panel keys. Front panel controls: The front panel shows a power key, three keys for the input selection and four LEDs for sampling frequency display. The front panel keys have several functions: The selecting of the input source, the enabling or disabling of the “insert mode”, which allows to insert a digital device in the signal chain between Firewire input and analog output and finally the setting of the output level in the digital domain with “up/down” controls. Back panel elements: On the back panel there are three digital inputs (XLR, RCA, TOSLINK) and two Firewire sockets. Then there are two digital outputs (XLR, RCA) two pairs of analog outputs on XLR and RCA. The screwdriver operated rotary switch allows to set the analog output level in four coarse steps. Internal jumper settings: Internal to the DAC2 there is a jumper to select the dual wire mode for 176.4 or 192 kHz signals. Bit transparency check: The DAC2 allows to check the player software running on the computer for Bit transparency. This is done by playing a test audio file on the computer. The DAC2 then checks whether it receives the special Bit pattern from the test file. This check is running in the background of the DAC2 software, i.e. as soon as the DAC2 detects such Bit patterns it flashes three of the LEDs on the front panel. Size: Depth: 30 cm Width: 18,8 cm Height: 6,6 cm (1.5HU) AES/EBU Input: Sampling frequencies: 44.1 kHz, 48 kHz, 88.2 kHz, 96 kHz, 176.4 kHz, 192 kHz, Maximum input word-length: 24 Bits, Channel Status Data: Input accepts professional or consumer format, Connector: One XLR female (110 Ω), one RCA (75 Ω), one TOSLINK (optical) AES/EBU Output: One XLR male connector, One RCA connector Firewire Input/Output: Two Firewire 400 sockets to allow for daisy-chaining of Firewire units, Balanced Analog Output: Two XLR male connectors, pin 1 ground, pin 2 hot, pin 3 cold, Symmetrical, Servo circuit, i.e. pin 3 can be grounded for asymmetrical outputs, Not earth free, Short circuit proof, DC coupled, Output impedance: 50 Ω Single Ended Analog Output: Two RCA connectors, Asymmetrical, Short circuit proof, DC coupled, Output impedance: 50 Ω Output level selectable via a rotary switch at the back: +17 dBu (5.48 Vrms) with a 0 dBFS sine wave input, +11 dBu (2.74 Vrms) with a 0 dBFS sine wave input, +7.2 dBu (1.78 Vrms) with a 0 dBFS sine wave input, +4.8 dBu (1.35 Vrms) with a 0 dBFS sine wave input Options: Thunderbolt interface via the Apple® Thunderbolt adapter Software: Firewire drivers for Windows™ and OSX™ operating systems are supplied Measurements: Measurements taken at the following conditions (unless otherwise noticed): +17 dBu output level, 0 dBFS input level, 48 kHz sampling frequency (fs), 22 kHz measurement bandwidth. Frequency Response: DC…20 kHz: ±0.3 dB THD+N at 1 kHz: At −3 dBFS input: −97 dB SNR at −20 dBFS input: 107dB unweighted, relative to full scale output Linearity: From 0 dBFS to −120 dBFS input level: less than ±1 dB deviation from ideal Crosstalk: Less than −110 dB, DC…20 kHz Inter-channel phase response: Less than ±0.5°, DC…20 kHz Comments: Selling my beloved Weiss DAC 2. I think the Stereophile review does it justice, this DAC is the pro-audio version of their Minerva DAC. They are internally identical, so reviews regarding the Minerva should apply. For those of you looking to run a DAC directly to a power amp, this DAC has both a digital volume control and 4 selectable analog output levels. The digital level control is done via the front panel by holding down the power button, which then enables volume control mode. Once enabled the volume can be adjusted using the AES/EBU button (volume down) and the S/PDIF button (volume up). The rotary switch located on the back panel allows for 4 output levels adjusted in analog domain. The switch is tiny and located between the left and right balanced analog outputs (it looks like a flat head screw). This analog control was included in the later DAC 2 models. Unfortunately, no remote. Photos: Advertisements without photos of the actual item will not be approved.
