  1. Hi, Any word on the new 2.0? It is March 3rd, and just checked my Innuos was updated with the latest software 1.4.7? The My Innuos page said this was the Updated app? No 2.0 upgrade yet?
  2. Further information: Very good condition Musical Fidelity A3-24 DAC. Hefty 10kg tank like build quality. Made in the UK. As a sound processor and upscaler, it is great and significantly boosts its performance as a DAC. The analog section (actually DAC part) is well designed too. I've put it up against in an A/B comparison many newer similar priced DACs for similar money. Makes the newer light weight DACs sound thin and digital. Serial number for this unit is ZGP00256 NB. I have another identical make/model for sale too. Photos:

  4. Further information: Brand new Tungsol KT-150 tubes for sale. All eight Savatov Russia factory matched. Sold new 2 months back by Neil (The Valve Store, Melbourne). Electrically tested by Neil. All tubes bought for a valve power amp project. Never happened. Therefore NLR.

  5. Further information: Brand new for sale is eight Tungsol KT-150s tubes. All match from the Saratov Russian factory. Further tested and sold via Neil from the Valve store in Melbourne. Was intending to use these in a new Valve amp, which I never bought. Valves purchased two months ago. Preference given to buyer intending to buy the lot.

  6. Further information: Excellent condition PS Audio DSD NuWave DAC. Owned from new. Improved by Mike Fitzpatrick of Liquid Audio (a $400 affair). See the link below as to the improvements. https://liquidaudio.com.au/ps-audio-nuwave-dsd-dac-upgrade-review/ On a A/B comparison with the latest $9k PS Audio Direct Stream DAC, this modded NuWave DSD sounded better overall to my ears and another Audiophile friend (who owned the more expensive direct stream). An amazing DAC given the money. PS Audio DSD NuWave website: https://www.psaudio.com/products/
  7. Impressive DYI point to point wiring, Mundoff caps. Almost never seen in established European brand speakers costing over $30k. Photo example below:
  8. Amazing DAC even unmodified. Easily the best DAC Musical Fidelity ever made. Distinctly organic sounding DAC with it's hybrid designed mini tubes.
  9. https://www.thevalvestore.com.au/ Neil at the valve store looked after me. He is resistant to giving specific advise, given people have different systems and tastes in music. However, if your a MF man, I'll assume your similar to my taste in music- strong dynamic range and accuracy. Genalex is likely your tube.
  10. Yes, great choice for the money the Adelaide speaker company. 92db sensitivity for a dynamic floor stander speaker is pretty good. Also, they are using SB acoustic drivers- good for the money. Your other option is upgrade the Valves with Genalex valves. Those EL 34s are really weak and impotent. A mate bought the Evo 400 power amp. Bought the Tungsol KT120s. They are nice. He also bought the KT150s. Better base, but less mid range glory. Genalex KT88s are another choice. The standard Primaluna valves are Chinese made EL34 Shuguang. Despite Kevin Deal talking it up.. t
  11. Hi, Welcome to the SNA community. I also started my audiophile life with MF. Currently, I own the best of both Worlds.. Musical Fidelity M8 700i monos with Primaluna Evo 400 pre amp.. Primaluna pre amp gear rocks, however not enough juice to power regular speakers to full potential unless efficient horn speakers. Cheers, Dave
  12. Further information: Up for sale is a late series Musical Fidelity Tri-Vista 21 DAC. This was Mike Fitzpatrick's from Liquid Audio own personal MF Tri-Vista 21 DAC, which he owned and continuously upgraded, adding over $1000 of improved parts plus countless hours of his own time. I contacted Mike on several occasions and tried to get him to sell it to me. After about a long period of time, he relented and we agreed on a final price (which was far above the price I am offering it today for sale, receipt will be available to interested parties). In the years he owned it, he continued to upg
  13. Looks interesting Hydrology. I was introduced to the idea of isolation by a audiophile friend. Thought it was a waste of financial resources. Started with the Solid Steel shelves, and was surprised by the improvements. Next, found there significantly more improvements (lower noise floor, better tighter bass, clearer mids, better sound staging), with adding Honey comb lava Basalt slabs and Stainless Mecados and Nordost Kones. The more slabs of Basalt (each weighing 20kg) and layers of isolation in between, made a difference. I was limited by shelf height in the end. Beyond two Basalt layers, th
