  5. The January 2016 meeting of the Sydney Audio Club sees us once again gather for an afternoon of fine music, great sound and amicable company. Each month, the Sydney Audio Club presents the finest in high end audio systems for our members and guests. It's a bit like a private audio show once a month where you can hear and discuss equipment that you might not otherwise have the chance to audition. And you can bring along your own music to test the capabilities of the system or to just share with like-minded music lovers in a friendly and relaxed atmosphere. As is usual for our January meeting, we will have a system comprised of club member components. But our meeting this year will be a bit different … we’ll have an Australian twist in celebration of Australia Day coming up. Bring any music composed by or performed by Australian artist/s. Most of our meeting will be BYO so we may be able to allow the playing of more than 1 track per person, depending on how much music everyone brings. Details of the system…. KEF 104.2 speakers – “Model 104/2 was a high output, high sensitivity speaker system possessing exceptional dynamic capability, able to reproduce a very wide dynamic range at high output levels.†Refer to http://kef.com/html/en/explore/about_kef/museum/1980s/reference_series_104_2/index.html Audio-GD Master-10 integrated amp – “Fully balanced design, the gain stages and pre-driver stages working on class A , built by discrete analog stages without any OPA or coupling caps in the signal channels.†Refer to http://www.audio-gd.com/Master/Master102015/Master-102015EN.htm Oppo BDP-105 Universal player – Refer to https://www.oppodigital.com/blu-ray-bdp-105/ and http://www.theabsolutesound.com/articles/oppo-bdp-105-universal-blu-ray-player-and-dac/ B&O Beogram 4000 Parallel Tracking turntable – “A heavy platter driven by an electronically regulated servo motor linked together with two arms read the grooves of the record being played via tangential tracking. This method of playing discs was carried out in reverse of how the original master disc was actually cut in the first instance. The technology went back to basics and then improved upon it. The second arm ‘reads’ the tracks of the record, ’seeing’ the gaps in between. In this fashion it ‘knew’ just where one track ended and another one began. It also automatically sensed the size of the record being played and set the speed accordingly. Clever stuff indeed, especially for 1972, when the technology was being designed and developed!â€. Refer to http://beophile.com/?page_id=726 Cabling will be by Wireworld and Synergistic Research. Both the first and second halves of the music sessions will be our popular BYO. Members and guests are welcome to offer music to share with us all. So bring along your favourite Australiana music on CD/SACD, USB flash drive or vinyl. All we ask is that the music and recordings be interesting. We'll ask you to tell us a little about the artist/recording before it is played. Tracks over 6 minutes will be faded out, to give everyone a fair go. Whether you are a novice or a seasoned veteran, you will have the opportunity to listen, learn and share your experiences with others of a similar mind. Guests are always welcome – we are a very friendly club so you don't need to know anyone to join us for an afternoon of fine music and sound. We will welcome you at the door. Venue: Epping Creative Centre, Dence Park Address: 26 Stanley Road, Epping When: Sunday 17th January 2016 Doors open 1pm Meeting starts at 2pm Best regards, Tom Waters President Sydney Audio Club www.sydneyaudioclub.org.au tomwaters@sydneyaudioclub.org.au
  6. Hi, I am searching for a chance to have a listen and comparison of an Audio-Gd NFB 7 and a Master 7. I do have a Master 7 on loan for the moment which I could bring. I would also like to find out how the NFB 7 works directly connected to a power amp. Cheers.
  7. Hi, As the ad says looking for a half width CD player or transport in black , must be VG Condition, no problems, currently willing to go to $450 + post, but may go higher if the right unit appears..... JJ
  8. Hi folks, After just reading that the local price for the Wyred 4 sound remedy reclocker has gone up from $430 to $550 I'm thinking there might be plenty of other fish in the sea that do the same thing. It would be appreciated if anyone can suggest similar devices and their experience, comparison or opinion of them. I can start with my own experience. I own an old Audio Alchemy DTI Pro32 reclocker and I recently connected the coax from my pc to this and then to a nad m51. It was an obvious and decent improvement in sound quality. I'm thinking another reclocker like the remedy or Audio gd would be useful. The Audio gd has usb input as well as spdif where as the W4S only has spdif. Thanks in advance, L11
  9. Item: Audio-gd NFB 2 DAC Location: Melbourne/Hawthorn Price: $285 Item Condition: Very Good Reason for selling: Surplus Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Extra Info: Comes with the DIR9001 chip This is an excellent entry level DAC that constantly gets praised on stereo net and head fi. It's in excellent conditions with no marks. Has USB, SPDIF and toslink inputs. The only reason I'm selling is because I bought the NFB-5.32. Here's a good review by John Darko - http://www.digitalaudioreview.net/2010/12/audio-gd-nfb-2-dac-19-series/ and the from the website - http://www.audio-gd.com/Pro/dac/NFB-2/NFB2EN.htm Postage available for extra cost.

  10. Item: Weston Acoustics Tempest, class A push/ pull (for EL34 or KT88) Location: Chadstone, Melbourne Price: $dropped to 1700 Item Condition: Excellent. Reason for selling: Single ended Payment Method: Bank deposit/ Paypal/ Cash on pick up Extra Info: The amp will ship with its original tubes: Tung Sol 6SL7 (new stock) x3, Electro-Harmonix 6AC7 (EL34 equivalent), x4, Jen Centron 5R4 x2. And I will throw in an (one) RCA 6SL7 to get your started. The amp also has a headphone amp/ switch. It was able to drive my AKG 701 easily. The amp has 4 inputs. The pre/ power sockets were disconnected during service (by Earle) this improves sound quality by removing internal wiring. This is an auto-biasing amp. This amp was serviced by Earle, when I visited him and ordered the Time Machine in February this year (I am heading down the low power/ high efficiency speaker path). The amp can be shipped, I have kept the Pack n Send’s packaging when it was shipped from Sydney. However, this will be costly due to its 25kg weight and the fact that valves are delicate, so pickup is preferred.

One of the four tubes have a missing guide pin. Reason for selling: Time Machine Payment Method: Bank deposit/ Paypal/ Cash on pick up Extra Info: These tubes are a must have for the Tempest.

  11. After reading many pages on the internet of Rotel's rcd991 getting the better of people with challenges to reliability, I took a stand and would not let it beat me. I have had the big Rotel for about 5 years and spent a fortune getting it from Greece to me in Malaysia. Why? because I Auditioned a Copland CD266 with dual BB pcm63p Dac chips and the controversial pmd100 filter chip. To this day I don't think I have heard a better disc player. So at the time I did not have the funds to buy and had to let it go. So armed with the knowedge of it's internals I scoured for a cheaper alternative with the same DAC chip and Filter. I came across the much unloved Rotel rcd-991ae in greece. I did pay way too much for it and the shipping but hey are we not all crazy when Hi Fi is concerned.? Once I got it home I listened to it for a few weeks and then decided I was under whelmed. At that point I decided to do something about it and Mod the hilt out off it. Enter Audio GD with 4 discrete op amps and a new clock, Jantzen entered the fray with some silver Output caps and Solen and Wima provided the added extras. After a few weeks of determined ignorance of a novice I finally had finished. Press Play and BINGO it was superb. I fell in love with this big chunk of Rotel metal and listened to it exclusively for weeks. I was 80% close to the Copland and I was a happy camper. After a couple of years of use It got pushed back off the favourites list by the modded duo of Marantz Cd5000's with the amazing Philips TDA1549 Dac chip and discrete op amp and New big Jantzen silver output Caps, and the Modded Marantz cd50 with Nos, discrete output stage etc.. The Audio GD NFB3.2 arrived and that was now the house favourite being driven by my Modded Pioneer DV989avi as a digital transport. Being the fair Hi Fi Father I am, I alternated between the players until my Rotel RCD991 started to behave like the petulant child it has been for so many people. I spent hours and hours inside it looking for why it sometimes would play CD's and sometimes would give me the finger with a "no Disc" message. Sometimes when it actually got going it would go into track skipping meltdown and then I would spend another full weekend of changing yet another laser and checking every capacitor and resistor there was. But to no avail it beat me.. Up until now. I have spent another day of research and discussions on this petulant child and read and read until I could read no more. Doing my best trouble shooting thinking on the Loo it Dawned on me. My enlightenment of the problem was a defining moment in my Amateurish attempts of days gone by. Armed with the soldering Iron and some spare parts pilfered from my now defunct Cambridge audio 540cv2, I changed the spindle motor and the laser motor and prayed that I had demonstrated enough determination to succeed. Load a disc, it reads the TOC straight up, press play and Music, beautiful music once more. Skip forward through a few tracks and tight and fast tracking once again!. I sit before you happily listening to my now Non belligerent Monster Rotel smiling and writing this little experience hoping that my Hi Fi Brothers owning this Player will not give up hope and not let this temperamental piece of Japanese mastery beat you.
  12. Dear All those whom have a Marantz Cd 50, I thought I would share some pics for your reference in case you are thinking of modifying it. The Player has had the following Audio GD discrete op amps (Earth Variety) Audio GD clock with discrete power stage Jantzen Caps(replaced the Obligato's) output capacitors seperate power supply to the clock(bit of over kill but better to be safe) No Oversampling mod re- Lukas Fikkus-Lampizator style. re cap of TDA1541 with metal film decoupling caps metal film decoupling of power supply regulators metal film decoupling of Power Filter Capacitors bitumen lined base and cover larger supply power caps around discrete op amps It was certainly a challenge for a novice like me but it was definitely worth every bit of it. What a great sounding player, highly recommend doing it over the flat uninvolved stock unit. regards JP

  14. Item: Audio-gd C-2.1 Headphone Amp/Preamp Location: Hawthorn, Melbourne Price: $230 Item Condition: Excellent Reason for selling: Surplus Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: I am selling my Audio-gd C-2.1 Headphone Amp/Preamp. It is in excellent condition, with no marks or scratches. It's going as I have upgraded to the NFB-6. This HP amp delivers a clear (neutral) and faithful sound and won't muddy the source.

  15. Item: Audio-gd DAC-19 DSP1 Location: Canberra Price: $450 (plus postage) (open to offers) Item Condition: Very Good (same as purchase) Reason for selling: Upgraded to another Audio-gd DAC. Payment Method: Bank Transfer, Paypal (add 3% for normal transaction unless sent as a GIFT from paypal balance or bank account) Extra Info: No USB input. It is replaced by BNC. Pictures: attached NOTE: No USB input. It is replaced with a S/PDIF BNC input. For sale is my Audio-Gd DAC-19 DSP1 bought around November this year. I liked it so much that when a Ref 7.1 became available shortly after buying this one, I immediately upgraded. So, this one has to go. The condition is like new. There are some minor scuffs at the bottom side of the unit that were apparently on the device when it was delivered. Note that the original purchaser chose to have a BNC input instead of the old USB implementation. This modification cost a bit more than the original stock price. DAC-19 is said to be the single ended version of Ref 5 and it uses the famous 2xPCM1704UK chip together with DSP1 digital filter. You can choose to play around the oversampling settings with the DSP1 chip in it. Features & technical specs can be found here http://www.audio-gd....C19/DAC19EN.htm Attached Thumbnails
  16. Item: Modded Fostex T50RP, Audio GD Digital Interface with DSP-3 (USB), Audio GD NFB-11 Location: Bendigo, VIC 3550 Price: Varies DAC/DI Combo is SOLD! Item Condition: Very Good Condition Reason for selling: Moving trying to minimize things to move with Payment Method: Pickup/shipping - Cash, paypal (buyer covers fee), direct deposit Both the Digital Interface and Audio GD NFB-11 (with Sabre32 ES9018 Dac chip) were purchased approx. 1.5 years ago the Audio GD DI has the upgraded clock which was installed at Audio GD. This was used to connect my computer to my receiver and to my headphones. You can read the detailed specs on the Audio GD NFB-11 here: http://www.audio-gd.com/Pro/Headphoneamp/NFB11/NFB11EN.htm You can read the detailed specs on the Audio GD Digital Interface with DSP-3 (USB only) + upgraded TCXO clock here: http://www.audio-gd.com/Pro/dac/USBface/Digital1EN.htm Comes with BNC cable (to connect the DI to the NFB-11) and USB cable + Nice RCA cables to connect the NFB-11 to an amp or receiver for speakers. Pretty much these modded T50RPs sound very close to the hifiman HE-6s I used to own, very close but in a closed headphone. (He-6 still sound better but they also cost much much more) Modifications to the T50-RP can be seen here: http://www.head-fi.org/t/583371/t50-response I purchased them directly from HDman, very detailed list on how he did the modifications and the parts he used. Only little flaw is that he cut out small notches on the original rubber/plastic headband to mount at one time a head tracking system for virtual surround sound. Looking for $220 ONO for the Audio GD NFB-11/Audio GD Digital Interface combo with cables (as I think it should sell as a single unit) and $200 ONO for the T50RPs. Pictures are available on request
