  1. Last post, running with naim Nait 5si...sounds amazing. Bass slam but great all through the range. For kicks swapped off nacA5 speaker cable to Audioquest cheappy and noticed, was more muddy in mid range.
  2. Further information: This is an intriguing product I bought to clear up an audible hum in a power transformer. I corresponded with Van Alstine to confirm it is rated to handle 240v (it is). Read all about it here Note this is an imported unit from USA and as such has US power plug sockets on the output side. A standard IEC on input. I have the original US plug to IEC cord but this will not help AU users. I will include two, grounded, AU to US power socket adaptors but use these based on your own consideration or consult an electrician. I no long
  3. Mmmmm....won't have that. I'll see how I go. I have to be careful I don't kick off another upgrade waterfall ? Thanks for the tip tho.
  4. Alright great! I'm not committed enough to go full active I like my DAC too much but I've pulled the trigger on some S400. It'll take a while to arrive I guess but should be worth it.
  5. Item: Buchardt Audio S400 Bookshelf Speaker Price Range: $2,000 Item Condition: Used Extra Info: These intrigue me! Looking at upgrading from KEF LS50, checking that no-one else has the upgrade bug before I look in EU. Please don't forget to report your post as FOUND when possible. (You can now delete this text).
  6. Hey, This might seem off topic but stick with me... I recently swapped from a Linn integrated to a Naim. I thought I would experiment with some DIN cables - the 'preferred' interconnect for Naim amps . I ordered a 2nd hand Chord Crimson RCA to DIN cable on eBay (won the auction that no-one else bid on) and then waited for the cable to come from UK. Lo and behold to my surprise when it arrived it was 4 RCA plugs to one 5-pin DIN. I understand that would be great for a tape in and out but less useful for my DAC ? I know it would work i
  7. Further information: Really well made cables with a great sound. I was impressed with bass and high end detail. Q2’s inner Long-Grain Copper (LGC) conductor is surrounded by an outer spiral of 11 strands of LGC. The result is AQ’s new flexible Solid+ Concentric Conductor, with sound quality even closer to that of an ideal solid conductor and yet big enough to make a great cable with only two conductors. The two conductors (+ and -) are spiraled for minimum inductance (inductance makes sound seem out of focus), and maximum clarity and dynamics. This ideal cable is then
  8. Further information: For whatever reason I have become quite attached to this pair. They replaced Chord Clearways and they really unlocked my system at the time. I love the sound but I think there is something zen about the minimalist design that triggers something in my brain. I have moved to a Naim with DINs so reluctantly letting them go. The highly acclaimed PBJ interconnect exhibits simple, elegant construction incorporating proven tri-braid field geometry, VariStrand™, Hyper-pure copper conductors and extruded fluorocarbon dielectric. PBJ has become a classic with
  9. Further information: A hifi classic this integrated is a beauty. The totally silent circuit design means music is depicted against a completely black background. Don't let the small case fool you the power is impressive - I've played with a series of speakers and sources and enjoyed all. Reviews are consistently good; Hifi classic.net Sound stage network TNT audio The unit is in excellent condition. I have included lots of photos to show the condition rare to see these days. Includes the kudos tuner card, remote and manual

  11. Further information: This is an opportunity to get a rare Harmon Kardon receiver built after Sydney Harman re-acquired the receiver division but prior to the sale to Samsung. This is an immaculate example carefully kept in smoke free home. Full working condition and price includes remote, manual and the original sales catalogue (with 1994 price!!). Sound is that classic Harman sound, makes any source a beautiful listen including a turntable. Most recently used with a Chromecast this was a great listen. Beautiful warm sound cut to the Harmon curve. The industrial design of this u
  12. Item: iFi Audio Micro iUSB3.0 USB Power Supply (two usb output) Price Range: 200-300 Item Condition: New or Used Extra Info: I would like to take advantage of the power ability to power two usb devices Please don't forget to report your post as FOUND when possible.

  13. Further information: Selling my W4S Recovery USB re-clocker which I purchased here last September. I have the original packaging, power pack and all original accessories (short USB A to B tether and the 1” USB A to B jumper) This is a very well-reviewed unit with plenty of information available on the web. I found it made an audible difference during complex sections of music.
