  1. I am no longer looking for dac v1 because i have bought one from oversea for a very good price.

  7. Not sure about the effect on the resale value. ADI-2 normally sold for around 1750 here in classified. Well I can't say much about the reliability, you should properly search it up on Google. One of the risk you need to consider is buying from oversea without local warranty. Is it worth saving a few hundred bucks? I personally found it often offers good value when buying certain audio equipment from overseas given that the mark up local price here in Australia.
  8. £698 + £80 shipping + GST = £778 (around 1350AUD + GST) https://studiocare.com/products/rme-adi-2-dac?variant=31531489034286 If you don't mind buying from UK, this is the cheapest one I have seen . Includes 2 year warranty but have to ship it back to UK for warranty claims. Always buy directly from the seller if you can, the price on eBay is often more expensive due to extra eBay fees.
  9. That is exactly the reason why I want to pair the NAP 100 with another Naim. My current setup with Aune x1s dac is having the gain problem, the line out is not variable and its too loud. I cannot get past 10 on volume in windows. Currently, I cannot find any dac v-1 for sale in Australia that is within my budget so my only option is to buy from oversea or buy the RME. This is going to be a hard decision to make between two DACs.
  10. Buying directly from their store website is cheaper than the one on reverb. I have sent an email to Studio care to ask them if the dac will include any warranty. They said it will come with 2 year warranty but you have to send it back for warranty claims.
  11. Marantz HD CD1? It's not timber but it has some wood side panels. Specification: https://www.marantz.com/en-gb/shop/sacdcdplayer/hdcd1 https://www.audiotrends.com.au/marantz-hd-cd1-silver-gold.html?utm_source=google_shopping&m=simple&gclid=CjwKCAiAz4b_BRBbEiwA5XlVVuJwuTiljAIykwHLL2eJxR43Kg94sC5DHVemu_O_BW8TMg1ZkugLtRoCx6MQAvD_BwE
  12. Thanks for the reminder. That's actually a very good point that I forgot about. Not having local warranty is one of the things that put me off from buying overseas as I don't want to send it all the way back to have warranty issues sorted. The Naim OLED display is known to have some issues. It might actually be much better to buy locally to have the warranty included. Currently, I'm more leaning towards the RME due to the extra features it offers. The Naim Dac- v1 is not bad but it's getting a bit old now in terms of the technology.
  13. Store DJ is selling it for $2189 so it's over $800 difference. https://www.storedj.com.au/rme-adi2-dac-fs-ultra-fidelity-pcm-dsd-768khz-da-converter?gclid=CjwKCAiArIH_BRB2EiwALfbH1KNVKIkMOUwrNwYlqDlzdC7SkMtyV6n5UwMjRS4oPavN1LE0aFC5gxoCWMQQAvD_BwE
  14. Is this a scam? If it's not a scam it will be the cheapest one I have seen. [UK] Brand new RME ADI-2 DAC FS selling for $1300 + $130 shipping On Reverb https://reverb.com/au/item/31970240-rme-adi-2-dac-fs-extreme-power-headphone-amplifier-reference-class-usb-dac On seller's website £698.00 ex. vat https://studiocare.com/products/rme-adi-2-dac?variant=31531489034286
  15. Bump. If anyone have one message me immediately, I am about to pull the trigger on a RME ADI-2 DA FS.
  16. Thanks for the reminder. I will rephrase the topic, it is a little bit misleading. What I meant was I was looking for an all in one dac that has the function of headphone amp and variable line output. This is my home office setup so my only source is Tidal using USB connection. I would love to have 3 separate components but unfortunately I don't have enough space on my desk. The Schiit Lyt is a nice dac but it has a tube on top of it so there is not a lot of space left for the NAP 100. Besides, the NAP 100 is a lot longer than the Schiit Lyr so I'm not sure if I can fit the NAP 10
  17. CMA400 looks like a solid built dac, the specs are good too but it is too wide. Due to limited space on my desk, I'm trying to find a dac that can stack up on top of the NAP 100.
  18. Irek, Thank you for your suggestions. I am looking for an all in one dac to replace my current dac because it does not have a variable line output. Therefore, I'm not planning to buy a separate headphone amp. The Schiit Lyr is a little bit wider than NAP 100, I'm not sure if it will fit on top of the NAP 100. I will look into the Topping Dx7pro.
  19. HI. I'm currently looking for a new dac to upgrade my current dac (Aune x1s). The reason for upgrading the Aune is it does not have any output volume adjustment so I have to control the volume through windows. The volume is also way too loud so I have to leave it under 10 most of the time. I have also put a want to buy ad in the classified but seems like people tend to hold on to their gear and the DAC v-1 rarely come up for sale. If anyone have one and planning to upgrade or sell please feel free to pm me. Due to I couldn't find a Naim DAC v-1 for sale that is within my price range, I have ca
  20. I have found these 12TC Kimber Kable from a Gumtree seller selling for $400. I reckon they are one of the fake ones. That's more than half price of the original one would cost. There is also something fishy about hand writing on the box instead of a printed label with the model name on it. Due to I wasn't 100% sure so I have sent an email with the Gumtree link to Kimber Kable custom support about those 12TC cables. https://www.gumtree.com.au/s-ad/airport-west/other-audio/kimber-kable-12tc-2-5-mt-banana-banana-/1227801269 The real one are selling for $1168 in pairs from JD audi
  21. It cost £1350 when brand new in 2016 but Naim stop making them a while ago so It's getting harder to find one for sale. I have seen SNA members sold their used Dac v-1s here for around 1150 to 1600. I'm going to wait for a bit. Hopefully someone upgrade their dac v-1 and put one up for sale on classified.
  22. Audio Apartmento they are selling an ex demo unit for $2299 that is still a lot of money for an ex demo unit.
