  1. What are you connecting it to ? so a micro USB is in the phone, what is the other end going to ? did you track down a DAC to test it on ?
  2. I havent seen a samsung for many years that wont. it should ask you when you connect a USB what you want to use it for ; charging/file transfer/ then mine says Midi Audio or something like that, thats the one you want if you are streaming out to a dac. What model is it ? A mid priced DAC should give you a good upgrade compared to using the phones internal DAC. The internal dac is what you are listening to when you plug headphones in obviously. Try and loan an audioquest dragonfly and put it between the phone and the amp/headphones - I bet you will like what you hear. Cheers Ja
  3. Hi mate, The conversion has already taken place if you are outputting via the 3.5 jack. External Dac would be streets better but you would need to run from your phones usb (micro or C or whatever) then your phone sends the data only and the outboard dac converts it to an analogue signal and sends it (via RCA) to the rotel amp. Cheers, James
  4. Would second the comments around having the high value items specifically listed on your policy, you need to find an insurer/broker who will do this. So your policy schedule would have something like ; Policy Limits ; Building - $1,500,000 Contents - $400,000 Specified Items Simaudio Moon 760A Stereo Amplifer - $14,000 Canton Reference 3K Floor Standing Speakers - $25,000 If they aren't listed specifically with a value which the policy states is 'agreed' or at least 'replacement value up to the sum insured' then you are going to have problems.
  5. The ZYX R-50 Bloom is a wonderful sounding MC cartridge, majoring on smoothness and ease of presentation rather than clinical detail. See here for specs: http://www.zyx-audio.com/products_mc_r50_series_r50.html Review here: https://www.dagogo.com/zyx-bloom-low-output-moving-coil-phone-cartridge-review/ Purchased recently from a fellow stereonet member, I'm using his photos with permission as he did a better job than I could on these, beautiful condition and was tracked at less than 120 hours, I have probably added another 10 - 20 to it. Comes with original
  6. Nice amp, does this have home theatre bypass ? I see it has AV but it appears to be another line input.
  7. Sold pending pickup, will reply to those who have posted.
  8. Found this in a box tucked away, it came on a rega turntable I purchased a while back. I switched it out and put it away and had forgotten about it. Its a nice tonearm ; https://www.originlive.com/hi-fi/tonearm/budget-tonearm-alliance/ Still in good working condition and I recall it sounded quite good. Let me know if anyone wants it otherwise I will tuck it back away to come across it again in 5 years.
  9. not sure how these other photos showed up, they arent mine. Its the cartridge only.

  11. there are actually a couple of pairs at Carlton Audio Visual for $1,250 new. I have the GX100's and was wondering which is higher up the ladder....
  12. There are some MA studios in the classifieds at the moment that have the ribbon tweeters you are after. They are thinner but taller and deeper than the gx100s
  13. Is this the low output ? is that what the L signifies on the back of the cartridge, I am local and interested, will PM.
  14. Interesting point Bunno77, I hadnt tried that but just did and the same issue - the right channel is about a quarter the volume of the left. Something wrong with analogue outs maybe. Both balanced and rca out have same problem. Anyhow, thanks for all the interest but I dont want to post. Got a local buyer I think so will update if still available but its 'sold pending pickup'.
