Item: Bricasti M1 DAC Location: Sydney Price: $5,500 Item Condition: Mint Reason for selling: Downsizing Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only, buyer pays for delivery costs Extra Info: Firmware upgraded to 1.3.2. Power supply also upgraded. Well reviewed product. Comes with original box and remote control unit. This is the highly reviewed audiophile grade M1 DAC from Bricasti Design, who also manufactures professional equipment for the music industry. This is a high end DAC and competes with DACs selling at 2-3 times the RRP price. Just Google and you will see all the positive reviews from hi fi reviewers and consumers alike. The M1 digital to analog converter is a dual mono design; there are two completely isolated channels, each with its own dedicated linear power supply, D/A converter, DDS clocking, and analog circuitry. This design ensures that analog crosstalk is virtually nonexistent, that the necessary power requirements for each channel are well met and isolated from each other and the digital processing is isolated, having its own power supply. With the twin DAC design, the dynamic range for each channel is optimised by using the stereo ADI 1955 D/A converter in a mono configuration. The M1 also includes Bricasti's own proprietary filter technology. This DAC produces the most natural and organic sound based on my years of audiophilia and has been partnered with a Antipodes DX music server feeding into a Vitus RI-100 amp serving a pair of YG Acoustics Carmel 2's. A number of SNA'ers have been to my place to listen to this combination and have had the usual "jaw dropped" experience. For the complete specifications on this unit you can check out the manufacturer's website http://www.bricasti.com/en/consumer/m1.php I respect the well researched consumer so will leave it here. PM me if any questions. Pictures:

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? Weâ€™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 weâ€™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 informativeâ€¦ but we wonâ€™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 weâ€™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 Thatâ€™s a lot of configuration changes and a lot of listening so we may not get through it all. Weâ€™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 systemâ€¦.

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 â€“ 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.
