  1. Thanks @Ittaku for the response. Are there any recommendations on the converter plugs? I have also reached out to Supratek to see if they can add XLRs now.. thanks @muriwai.
  2. Hi all, I recently (only picked up today) a Supratek Cortese amp from a forum member. The back panel looks like the below. Firstly, which one of these RCAs are inputs and which ones are outputs. Also, my power amp only has XLR, so what options do I have to connect an RCA to XLR? i have asked for the manual to be emailed, in its absence, it would be good to get an understanding of what the black switch on the extreme left does to the flick switch on the right? thank you.
  3. When turning it on, I go Source first, then DACpre and then the Poweramp. The other way around when turning it off, starting with the Poweramp. The DAC Pre, source and the Poweramp, are all in standby when I turn it off at the wall and the speakers still make a sound. Will leave it on at the wall then.
  4. Thanks you. The front button only puts in standby, hence turning it off at the wall. Or is it ok to leave it on standby?
  5. Hi All i recently bought a Krell amp (FPB 400cx) and I am intending to use a Supratek Preamp with it. While reading the amp’s user manual, I came across the following; —————————————————- USING A TUBE PREAMPLIFIER The high DC output of tube preamplifiers may exceed the DC protection circuitry of Full Power Balanced amplifiers. Excessive DC level in a signal can damage amplifiers, speakers, or both. The coupling capacitors in Full Power Balanced amplifiers must be engaged when using a tube preamplifier. An authorized Krell dealer, distributor, or Krell must activate these capacitors. Coupling capacitors must be inserted into the signal path by your authorized Krell dealer, distributor, or Krell before you can use your Full Power Balanced amplifier with a tube preamplifier ————————————————— . If anyone could shed some light on whether if this is required and if yes, who in Sydney can carry this work out? On a separate note, while turning the amp off (wall switch) there is a slight sound coming from the speaker. Is this normal or am I doing something wrong? Appreciate your help. Thanks
  6. pending payment and pickup

  9. Item: Chord Blu Mk2 - CD Transport and Upscalar (Black) Location: Sydney Price: $9900 $8900 Item Condition: Like New Reason for selling: Funding other purchases and setup changed. Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: I purchased this new in Aug 18, but has not been used for a number of months. I am also selling Analysis Plus BNC cables, that will be listed separately. If you are using Chord Dave, this goes very well with it as an Upscalar and doubles up as a CD transport. I would have played 2 CDs as all of my music is in a NAS drive, streamed through SMS-200 Ultra. This has great reviews across the web and if you use Chord Dacs, it doesn't get better than this (IMO) Some reviews from the web: https://www.whathifi.com/chord/blu-mkii/review https://www.gcaudio.com/featured-product/chord-blu-mk-ii-upscaling-cd-transport/ https://www.hifiplus.com/articles/chord-electronics-blu-mk2-upsampling-cd-transport/ Any questions, please ask. If you need additional photos, do let me know, it looks absolutely new. Packed and ready to go. Photos: Advertisements without photos of the actual item will not be approved.
