  1. I fell in love with music listening to my parents "Radiogram" - Ella Fitzgerald, Aretha Franklin, Simon & Garfunkel etc. My brothers and I harmonising to the Beach Boys. Listening late at night to my transistor radio under the sheets - Radio Caroline and John Peel playing "Dark side of the Moon". My first album was "The Slider" by T-Rex. I was 10. Cut to 50 years later, 3 years into a HeadFi journey that's close to being complete. Yes, the endless search for audio nirvana (even buying one!), countless hours of A-B and the drain on patience and dollars are a PITA. And yet.....I've dis
  2. Nirvana II - AUS stock with transferable warranty. Will ship in original packaging. This weighs 19kg. One of the TOTL HP amplifiers. Hand built in Serbia. Intoxicating, musical and immensely powerful. Drives Susvaras, Abyss, LCD-4 with authority. Comes with a selection of tubes. https://www.headfonia.com/review-auris-audio-nirvana/ https://headphone.guru/auris-nirvana-tube-heaven-for-headphones/ As its name suggests, Nirvana is designed to take you to a state of absolute bliss. Boasting premium quality and sound neutrality, Nirvana enables you to choose any headphones yo
  3. A guy I know based in Bloomington Indiana (my parent company's office) does exactly that. He set up a business buying 1-3 yr old Lambos, Ferraris etc from OS students who sold them on leaving IU. Buys them at 10c in the $. He once picked up a 911 that just had the keys on the seat outside the dorm the student was in. Student had rung and said "can you dispose of my car"?! He then cleans them up (they're often dinged) and then transports them all over the US. Has done very well for himself until C-19 came along!
  4. It really just comes down to supply and demand. V8 Land Cruiser anyone? Selling for $150K. Rolex Submariner - up to 8K over retail. What we will see is an increase in demand for AKM4499 DACs after the fire. The other element is rarity, an Omega Snoopy, early Rolex etc. Or go down to your local aquarium, yellow tangs double the price of 12 months ago. Want to buy a house in a major capital city? Gazumping here we come. It's FOMO and too much lazy cheap money.......it'll all come crashing down!

  6. Less than one month old with few hours. AUS stock with warranty. Tried this as an experiment with Susvaras/Abyss but preferred another system. Ragnarok 2 is the only modular, remote-controlled integrated amp that’s a great match for both speakers and headphones. Delivering full speaker power to the balanced headphone outputs, and debuting our all-new Nexus™ differential gain stage, Ragnarok delivers performance that completely befits its name—in Norse legend, Ragnarok was the “end of the world.” Modular Flexibility, Remote Convenience Ragnarok 2 has two module slots
  7. Interested to know if anyone has one they're looking to sell.

  9. I can't really comment on a specific sound signature. My feeling is this is just a really well made cable that performs way past it's price point.
  10. Please be very careful if you do go down this road with any Chord product. They have very strict warranty conditions around using external power.
  11. I heard one of these recently with the new Clear MG and the Utopias. Excellent sounding one box solution. Even drove some LCD-4s nicely at about 75 vol. Let us know your thoughts.
  12. Hi Guys, Thinking about going back to the LCD house sound. Let me know if you have anything for sale. Best. BoB
