  1. For sale is my Wyred 4 Sound DAC 2, with original remote, in very good condition. I purchased it brand new and was the only owner. I don’t have original packaging, but will pack it very securely and happy to post Australia wide. This was one of the best DAC of its time and for its budget (was around AU$2000 new), punching well above its weight and often outperforming DACs twice the price. I also genuinely believe that for the price I ask for it, you cannot buy a better or even equally good DAC on a market today. I’ve just upgraded to the great Exogal Comet DAC (develope
  2. For sale is brand new Jenzen Next Speakers DIY kit, designed by Troels Gravesen. Shipping to anywhere in Australia can be arranged. I bought and imported this kit from Jantzen Audio Denmark about 5 years ago, but unfortunately never had a chance to build it, never had time, there was always something in a way, as it often happens in life. During these years my circumstances/preference/taste changed a bit, so when I finally have some time to build speakers, they probably will be much larger model. You can find all the building details for this kit here http://w
  3. To my ears, I definitely hear clear and noticeable sonic improvements with external DAC. My first one was Wyred4Sound DAC2 (will be for sale soon) and currently Exogal Comet DAC (just bought from fellow forum member). So for me, it's definitely worth to introduce external DAC to any mid/high level system, however if I'm honest, I would never buy brand new DAC for a full retail price again. There are plenty of second-hand offerings and you can get MUCH more of a DAC for your budget, imo
  4. Hi! Do you mind me asking what is your current setup? What have you upgraded your LineMagnetic to? Only asking because of curiosity, as I'm also planning building Troels design speakers (aiming at The Loudspeaker 2), and also looking at buying Line Magnetic tube amp (upper range model). Thanks in advance!
  5. Regardless of seller's willingness to ship/not to ship, shipping cost is the killer here and usually not worth it with 'cheaper' speakers (unless you are posting small bookshelves). I've just bought a pair of speakers myself, from a fellow forum member, and the shipping cost were $500 for interstate shipping, and it was the cheapest rate we could find... Not to mention all the hassle for the seller to pack it / organise courier / insurance etc etc, so totally understand the seller not willing to bother

  7. Hi everyone Will be using projector for watching movies as well as playing games, so the input lag shouldn't be too high, I'd say not more than 70ms... I guess that eliminates Xiaomi and other "cheap" chinese then? So far only found Optoma P2 and Epson ls500... Anything else I am missing for the same price OR lower (up to $6k)? If there is nothing else, which one to choose among those two? Is one a significantly better deal than the other or they are on par and it's a matter of preference? Going to use it with 120" ALR screen, but don't care tha
  8. Hi, a couple of questions if you don't mind: - Can you turn it on/off without using a remote or app? Is there a physical button or something (I just hate unnecessary remotes) - Does selected volume level "stay" when you turn unit on/off? Or you have to manually adjust the volume every time you switch unit on? If so, what is the default level? (Again, I don't want to use remote every time if possible) - how old is it? - what are you upgrading to, if it's not a secret thanks in advance!
