  3. Item: Audio GD Ref 7.1 DAC Location: Bentleigh Price: $1200 Item Condition: Perfect working condition. Some scratches on the top of the case. Reason for selling: Have moved overseas and no longer use my audio gear in Melbourne. Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Bank transfer Extra Info: This is an exceptional DAC, which I enjoyed using for around 2 years in my Bel Canto Evo 4 / Revel Ultima Studio system. However, I've now been living overseas since 2013 and the DAC has been sitting at my parents' place, unused. Has all the standard inputs, as pictured here: http://www.audio-gd.com/Pro/dac/RE7.1/RE7.112.JPG Pictures:
  4. Item: Audio GD NFB-1.32 Sabre 9018 DAC - Special Toxic Cables Edition - SOLD Location: Glen Waverley, Victoria (pickup available in Docklands) Item condition description: Very Good Price and price conditions: $550 Reason for selling: No longer needed Payment Methods: Paypal (add 3%), Cash - Pickup, Bank Transfer. Extra info: An excellent Sabre 9018 DAC. Amazing clarity. No "Sabre glare" as the implementation is excellent. Has the highly rated USB-32 interface. This is a one of a kind. I purchased this from Frank at Toxic Cables and he said that he had replaced all internal wiring with his famous Toxic Silver Poison cable. It sounds excellent and is technically superior to just about every DAC around it's price range. The current model after shipping will set you back close to $1000 AUD after shipping. I paired this with great effect with the Mjolnir I just sold. It sounded great when connected to my stereo speaker setup too.
  5. Item: Audio-GD DAC 19 with PCM1704UK chips Location: Neutral Bay, Sydney Price: $500 FIRM, happy to post at buyers risk and expense Item Condition: Like New Reason for selling: Selling my spare. Payment Method: Pickup - Cash. Extra Info: http://www.audio-gd.com/Pro/dac/DAC19/DAC19EN.htm I apologize in advance, rotating of photos didn't work for some reason, they display fine in Photoshop however when uploaded they flip around. I have had this DAC for a while now paired with my custom built RaspberryPi Transport. It is in immaculate condition and I used all three inputs, USB for Raspberry Pi Transport, SPDIF for Raspberry Pi, and Optical for my CD player Transport. Photos:
  6. Item: Audio-GD DAC19DSP - PCM1704UK R2R chips and Amanero 384 USB conversion Location: Lower Nth Shore, Cammeray, Sydney. Price: $600 firm Item Condition: 9/10 - superb condition Reason for selling: Upgraded to PS-Audio Perfect Wave. Now surplus. Payment Method: Pickup - Cash. Extra Info: This was Pete_Mac's Dac before I purchased it after he repurchased it and then on-sold it again. He is far better describing all things audio than me, so I've simply quoted parts of his text from the original ad - Hope no one minds. Simply put, this is a great DAC for the money and I might have put 20hrs on it since purchasing. However, in my journey of trying DAC's I've crossed over to a PS-Audio number and that is a keeper (for the time being). Bought this DAC brand new from audio-gd, sold it, and bought it back again. I'm an enormous fan of the audio-gd PCM1704UK sound due to its tonal and timbral goodness (I've owned four different audio-gd PCM1704UK DACs and keep coming back to them!). I still haven't heard a DAC at this price point with such natural, effortless tonal reproduction. This DAC has 2 x PCM1704UK R2R chips and the audio-gd DSP1V5 digital processor. This allows selectable oversampling (including non-oversampling if desired), selectable stopband attenuation, dithering, and phased locked loop reclocking. You can tailor the sound extensively by enabling or disabling these options via shunt jumpers (provided with the DAC, of course!) Importantly, this DAC has been upgraded to the latest spec Amanero 384 Combo USB board. This asynchronous USB board is the best OEM board available IMHO. It sounds clearly better than the previous USB32 USB board (which itself was no slouch). There's absolutely no need for an external USB to SPDIF converter with this board. The Amanero board performs FLAWLESSLY with the Squeezebox Touch with EDO app installed, and Windows drivers are available from the audio-gd website. The drivers are far less finicky than the USB32 drivers too. There's a reason why audio-gd now include this USB board as standard on all of their top DACs.. it's the best! At the same time that I undertook the Amanero upgrade, I installed a brand new audio-gd R-core transformer. The original was perfectly functional, but had a tiny, tiny hum when you stood about 30cm from the DAC. Me being me, I wanted the DAC to be dead-silent... and now it is. These two recent upgrades were not cheap, hence the asking price for this superb DAC (recent DAC19 saales have been around $450-550). The equivalent DAC from audio-gd is over AUD$1300 landed in today's money once optioned-up with the Amanero upgrade. This DAC will give you PCM1704UK and Amanero goodness for under half that. I am confident that you won't find a DAC19DSP in this condition, with a brand new transformer and the Amanero 384 Combo USB board. If the DAC doesn't sell at my asking price, I will most likely keep it. Pick-up is preferred. Any questions, please don't hesitate to ask. Thanks.
  7. Hey all. I'm on the way to narrowing a dac choice, but when I think I'm on it, something else presents itself! I see why advice is to poke around and see what pops up, especially second hand. On another topic, I have been asking about how to set all this up in a new home and what I need, but in summary, I hope to eventually have: Sources: nas/streaming>dac>passive pre>, phono>pre, CD>dac, Amps: valve mono's DAC needs to have balanced outs (XLR). I was hoping I could get some feedback on the Audio-gd products (I like the idea of their expand ability and ungradeability). The PS stuff looks like it'd be great (such as the new Jr), but too pricey for me! Thouhgts?
  8. The February 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 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. For our February meeting we will be evaluating various ways to get a digital signal into your system. Does a CD ripped to disc sound better than the CD itself? Does a music server sound better than a computer audio solution (ie. music player software running on a PC or Mac)? Does an inexpensive solution like the Popcorn Hour stack up against either of the above? We’ll ensure the digital signal is sent to the same DAC in all setups, and that the rip to disc and the rip to flash are sourced from the same CD. And we’ll try to ensure the volume levels are the same across all setups. The event is meant to be fun and entertaining as well as informative… but we won’t be drawing any indisputable conclusions from these evaluations!! However, you may walk away with ideas you can then try at home. These are the setups we’ll have available on the day: Oppo BDP105 playing from a USB flash drive Oppo BDP105 playing the CD layer Wyred 4 Sound (W4S) Music Server Mac Mini music player (playing Pure Music V3) Popcorn Hour C300 That’s a lot of configuration changes and a lot of listening so we may not get through it all. We’ll take hints from the audience and listen to what people are most interested in. But we expect the preferences to be close to the order of the setups as shown above. Details of the system…. Wyred 4 Sound (W4S) Music Server – Refer to http://www.deephzaudio.com/Wyred%204%20sound%20Price%20Page%20Australia.html Oppo BDP-105 Universal player – The ubiquitous universal player with the excellent ESS Sabre 32 DACs. 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/ Mac Mini (late 2012 version) – with i7 processors, 16GB memory, SSD system disc. Music files on 1TB SSD with Thunderbolt connectivity. The computer is configured as a bare-bones dedicated music player with only essential services running. Bricasti Design M1 – Refer to http://i.nextmedia.com.au/avhub/australian-hifi_reviews_2014_2014-07_bricasti_design_m1_dac_review_test_lores.pdf and http://www.audiostream.com/content/bricasti-design-m1-dac 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 Energy Veritas 1.8 Floorstander speakers – Older speakers now but still sounding good.

The second half 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 music on CD/SACD or USB flash drive (sorry, no vinyl this month). 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 14th February 2016 Doors open 1pm Meeting starts at 2pm Best regards, Tom Waters President Sydney Audio Club www.sydneyaudioclub.org.au tomwaters@sydneyaudioclub.org.au
  9. I bought this lovely audio-gd DAC 3SE from vortexjah recently (thank again mate!) and have been very impressed by its performance via the DF1704 filter chip. I then bought a PMD100 chip to experiment with, but I got chatting with Kingwa from audio-gd regarding my options. He indicated that he could build me a full replacement digital board including the DSP1 V5 processor which would provide the tonal goodness of the PMD100, with the resolution of the DF1704. It also offers the option of selecting different oversampling settings and selectable phased lock loop jitter reduction. After experiencing the DSP1 V5 on my previous Reference 5, the proposition was too good to refuse! The DAC3 SE was in fact updated towards the end of its model run with a factory DSP1 V1 option (DAC 3DV). The version of the board that I have in mine has been built with WIMA capacitors rather than the white EVOX caps, so my board is a Reference 1 board, making this somewhat of a hybrid DAC. Even cooler is the fact that this DAC features three R-core transformers rather than the typical 1 x R-core and 2 x toroidal which were found in many early DAC 3SEs. It’s a huge DAC at around 430mm x 430mm x 80mm, with a wider front face. It weighs around 13kg. It also runs quite warm after 1 hour of use. Kingwa designed his earlier DACs to run warm compared to the later stuff. The new board arrived safe and sound and very well packed. Original board removed: The power wires were first unsoldered from the bridge rectifier PCB which is mounted directly above the centremost R-core transformer: Here’s a comparison of the two boards. The FETs screw into the bottom panel of the DAC for heatsinking, and the new board featured slightly different spacing as you can see in the pic below. This required the drilling of five new holes which was easily done. Apart from this, the board was a direct fit once the necessary wires were desoldered and resoldered. New board in position. One point to note is that the twelve bridging wires between the digital board and analogue boards (six wires per side) have a different order on the replacement board vs the original board. The first time I fired up the DAC, I hadn’t allowed for this change and there was no sound whatsoever (which is when panic set in!). I quickly retraced my steps and discovered my oversight. PCM1704UK chips (signified by the two white dots) Internal partitions re-fitted and ready to go! The DAC is now singing sweetly and stood up to be counted in a recent comparison with some fairly pricey and highly fancied DACs. It doesn’t have the outright detail of some DACs, but it isn’t all that far behind, and it makes up ground in terms of timbre, tone and realism. It’s the kind of DAC that you can listen to for hour upon hour without fatigue. To say that I'm happy would be a gross understatement If any DIYers are interested, I have listed the original digital board including the PMD100 and DF1704 chips in the classifieds. It would form an awesome platform for a DIY DAC.
  10. So... I recently resolved to sell my Resonessence Labs Concero DAC to fund exciting things like plants, cement, ag pipe etc for our new house. Back to Squeezebox Touch DAC land for me. Bloody Kingwa, true to form, posted details of the new audio-gd NFB-3(2014) on his website. Me, being a Kingwa fanboy, took the bait. So much for my well-made plans!! This DAC has the ES9018 DAC chip compared to the previous NFB-3 iterations with the dual WM8741 chips. The casework has also been updated to an all aluminium case, with no pressed steel cover. I've put about 200 hours on this DAC now (background listening whilst setting up our new house) and have had the opportunity to have a decent listen to it. These impressions are via speakers and are not ideal, as I have only just set up my gear in a new house and new dedicated listening room. The room is quite 'live' and needs some treatment to tame a bit of mild slap echo. That said, I'm VERY happy with the sonic signature of this DAC. Detail retrieval is excellent without becoming etched and artificial, and the tonality and timbral reproduction ain't half bad either. The sound is entirely believable. I do think that I subjectively prefer the PCM1704UK DACs in this regard (particularly with string-based instruments and pianos for example) but the NFB-3(2014) has better detail retrieval than the Reference 5, DAC3SE and DAC19DSP that I've previously owned, and certainly more than the original NFB-3 that I owned, so this is where it edges ahead. I guess you can't have your cake and eat it too, not at this price point anyway! These impressions are all based upon my audio memory, and should be taken with a grain of salt until I have the chance to compare this DAC back-to-back with a PCM1704UK-equipped example. Sound staging is also very good, but the very slight reverb in my existing room configuration is hindering sound staging I feel. I've achieved better imaging from this same gear (albeit with the onboard SB Touch DAC) in my old house, and I've tested the same configuration in the new room and achieved worse results. Given that the NFB-3(2014) trumps the onboard SBT DAC based upon my comparisons, I can't wait to improve the acoustics of the room (adding some room treatments and soft furnishings) to really let this gear shine. The USB32 works flawlessly with the Squeezebox Touch. I applied tape to the +5V pin as the USB32 is internally powered, and some members have reported sonic improvments when severing the +5V connection. I ordered the DIR9001 SPDIF receiver board as well as the WM8805. The DIR9001 sounds more like the USB32, whereas the WM8805 is a bit more laid back, smoother and a tad warmer. I look forward to experimenting with these SPDIF boards in future. The new casework is a marked improvement over the older NFB-2/3 DACs. It is thinner than the kind used on the Reference 5 etc, but is still much better than the pressed steel casing on these earlier models. The recessed screws are a nice touch, although one of mine had a slightly stripped head from the factory, and this made removal a real pain. The input selector knob on the front panel is also slightly askew. I will try to adjust this, but I am likely to be at the mercy of the knob and splines on the switch itself. In addition to the free TCXO upgrade and the optional OCC wire upgrade, I had the ACSS outputs replaced with RCA outputs, as I have no intention of going 'all audio-gd' in my system, so these connections are unwarranted. The RCA jacks are all nice CMC branded items. Compared to my former Resonessence Labs Concero, the audio-gd is slightly more resolving and has slightly wider sound stage. In terms of overall tonality, they are pretty similar I feel. They are not bare-boned detail freaks - they have soul. I could easily live with either of these DACs, and it just goes to show how good the Concero is. It packs a mighty punch into a tiny package! Overall, I consider this DAC to be brilliant bang for buck, and a worthwhile upgrade over the old NFB-3 with the dual WM8741s. I hope that I can tee up a get-together with Senor Darko in the near future to undertake some comparisons on his rig vs some decent DACs. http://audio-gd.com/Pro/dac/NFB32014/NFB32014EN.htm

I'm also selling my DAC - http://www.stereo.net.au/forums/index.php?/topic/62194-fs-audio-gd-nfb-2-dac/
  15. Item: Audio-GD NFB15.32. Has the USB32 upgrade, does not have TCXO upgrade. Location: Melbourne CBD. Price: $250 negotiable + shipping if required. Item Condition: Basically brand new. Used for a few hours. Reason for selling: Surplus to requirements as I got some nice hand-me-downs. Payment Method: Cash or Paypal. I bought this item from Addicted to Audio in January and it is as good as brand new. Comes with USB cable, power cable, and what I believe to be jumpers. The box didn't include any instructions or drivers, which surprised me, although I can provide the latest drivers on CD if required. I will also provide the receipt for warranty purposes. This item can also act as a pre-amp so it should sound quite nice paired with a nice power amp. I've never tried it, though I must admit I am tempted.
  16. Item 1: Schiit Bifrost DAC (Non-USB version - ready to upgrade with Schiit’s USB input and/or uber analogue card) (RELISTED ON ITS OWN) Location: Sth Gold Coast Reason for selling: Time to try something else. Payment Methods: Paypal, Cash - Pickup, or EFT. Buyer to pay any Paypal charges. Pictures: At the bottom Condition: Used but cosmetically as new and has functioned flawlessly since I bought it from an SNA'er 20 months ago. It was a review unit so had little use prior to that. Only thing is I have reattached the rubber feet with double sided tape. Will be posted in original packaging. Extra Info: This is the only DAC I have ever really used and have always thought highly of it as have others. The DAC has been used with a SBT and dedicated laptop and has been a real asset. Current retail is a shmig under $500. Item 2: Audio-gd Digital Interface (DSP with TCXO chip) with external linear PSU (SOLD) Condition: Used but cosmetically very good. Some signs of age with a few scratches here and there and slight wear on terminals - face is unblemished and still a pretty clean unit overall. Has functioned flawlessly since I bought it from an SNAer 4-5 months ago. Again feet attached with double sided tape. Extra Info: It’s an early version which I believe has the upgraded TCXO chip – please see pics. I used a HiFace Mk2 previously and preferred the Audio-gd which I think has brought a worthwhile improvement whenever included between source and DAC. I used the BNC output to the DAC on Kingwa’s recommendation so am including the BJC cable below. Please note the PSU runs pretty hot which according to Kingwa is normal as it’s a Class A power supply. Item 3: Blue Jean Cables – BNC to RCA 75 ohm digital cable (solid conductor) (SOLD) Condition: As new with probably 50hrs. Happy to answer any questions.
  17. 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
  18. Item: Audio-gd C39 MKIII preamp Location: Perth, WA Price: 675 SOLD Item Condition: excellent - one miniscule mark on the side and one tiny scratch underneath. Otherwise unmarked. Reason for selling: different direction, HT is where i find myself spending more of my time, so this isnt getting the use it deserves Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, bank transfer Extra Info: Bought this off a fellow SNA'r in late September. Its a very accurate preamp, and ive found it a pleasure to use. Its built like an absolute tank, i think this is the audio-gd style. The preamp is basically in the same state as i received it and has been treated with the utmost care. Remote is also in tip top shape. One funny thing to note is that the RCA inputs are 1 & 4, whereas they are marked as 1 & 3. This is confirmed the same as another SNA'r who had the C39 MKIII. His had a sticker stuck over input 3, relabelling it, so i think it is something that quite a few units must have. To be honest i didnt notice at first as i just scrolled thru on the menu numbers till it was right, but later on when i switched interconnects i realised it was mislabelled. Have original box so can ship Pictures: (excuse the bad photography!)

  20. Item: Audio-gd NFB 3 DAC Location: Bendigo VIC Price: $150 Item Condition: As New Condition Reason for selling: Selling off my bedroom setup Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal(+3%), EFT Dual Wolfson WM8741 inside (ACSS / RCA output) (Coaxial/Optical/USB input) CS8416 receiver Supports up to 24Bit/192KHz SNR 125dB Weight: approximately 5 Kg Size: width 240mm, height 80mm and depth 300mm.

  21. After one of these pupps to go with my future Ref 7.1
  22. Item: Audio GD DAC19-DSP1 Price: SOLD Condition: Excellent (See details) Location: Melbourne (North Suburbs) Payment: Cash, PayPal (add 3%, or use 'friend/family' transaction) or bank transfer Reason for sale: Downsizing Details: For sale is my Audio-Gd DAC-19 DSP1 - which is 18 months old. The condition is still pretty much the same as i got it since its just sitting there in my man-cave (a smoke free and pet free environment.) There are some scuffs at the bottom side of the unit which came directly from the factory. I didnt complain to them since its at the bottom of the unit where you will not notice it unless of course you want to put the item upside down. Note that this has the BNC input instead of the old usb implementation so that you can direct couple this with your own usb-bnc devices should you choose to go to that route. I believe this modification cost slighly more than the original stock price. Just in case its not clear there is NO USB input in this dac since its replaced with the superior spdif BNC input. Prior to owning this DAC - I owned a REGA DAC - which I sold (for $620). To my ears, this Audio-GD is superior. Anyone that hasn't heard a PCM1704UK dac should do themselves a favour! Photos: Will post tonight Note: I am also selling my Audio GD DI-dsp with PSU (will post an FS later). Can do a deal on both (they work better together anyway!).
