The tubes are identical performance to the "BVA Mullard" labelled ones of the same vintage. Pictures:
  2. This is a short review of “The Battery DAC “ Features the Phillips TDA 1543 Non Oversampling DAC chip Two rechargeable 9 Volt batteries that will operate approx 4 hours on just battery power (From the maker’s description) What are the main features of this DAC? And what are the main goals of its design? • To extract the pure performance of the last built non-oversampling true 16-bit TDA1543 DAC from Philips • Optical & Coaxial inputs • DIR9001 96 kHz SPDIF Receiver (lowest-jitter on the market - 50ps) • Supports sampling frequencies from 28kHz to 108kHz (continuous range, including non-standard frequencies) • TDA1543 16-bit DAC - the original from Philips® • Passive I/V conversion • No Op-Amp - direct output with 2Vpp (will drive any power amp well) • Huge capacitors on the output path provides sub-Hertz cutoff frequency (<0.3Hz on a 10kOhms input) • Dual Stage power supply regulation (for a super low background noise level) • Separate voltage regulator for the DAC and the Digital SPDIF receiver (same reason as above) • Battery-powered with dual 9V NiMH batteries • Smart battery charger on-board (quickly charges the batteries when depleted, keeps them charged at low current when idle) • When both power switches are on, the batteries are recharged, and are also used to buffer the external power, completely removing hum. • Will Directly drive any power amplifier • Easy to carry around and make it listen to yours friends 3-4 hours of listening on the batteries aloneBefore writing this review I listened to many styles of music through it for a couple of months just to be thorough This little DAC was sourced from EBay and is mostly hand made/assembled by an enthusiast from France Originally purchased to connect to my Audio GD CD-7 SE transport only unit, to give me multiple connection options with my dual system setup Listening impressions – From the get go were impressive I base my impressions from my past and present experience of Philips / Marantz CD transports as a direct comparison Most noticeable things I noted and remained constant throughout the time of the test are 1) The DIR9001 Battery DAC is whisper quiet 2) Has enough power to drive any amplifier 3) Is faithful to the recording Performance wise It’s equal to the Marantz CD-63 SE It’s close on the heels of the Philips CD960 Has a bit to go to catch up to the Marantz CD 94 MK II Outperforms the Beresford Bushmaster as I have one on loan It may be small in size but punches above it weight and price point This one is a keeper in my system, as I tend to like the Non Oversampling signature Equipment used in various combinations with and without pre amps Amp - (1) Blue Circle BMPH (2) Earle Weston Tweaker Tube Pre Amp - (1) Nakamichi C5A II (2) Earle Weston 6SN7 Tube Source - (1) Audio GD CD7 SE (2) Philips CD 960 (3) Marantz CD 94 MK II Speakers - Highly Modified - Klipsch La Scala horn speakers ​I have no association with the seller eBay link - http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/Non-Oversampling-DAC-TDA1543-DIR9001-96kHz-SPDIF-Coax-Optical-9V-NiMH-charger-/200916160114?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_15&hash=item2ec7894e72

  6. Item: Metrum Acoustics Octave NOS Mini DAC + Audiophilleo 1 Location: Melbourne (North West) Price: $975 (for both) $950 not separating currently as they work so well together Item Condition: Good Reason for selling: Freeing up funds for a streamer/dac combination Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: This has worked flawlessly and sounds lovely, so I might end up regretting this but I am certain this combination will be extremely hard to better for less than $1000. Both are well regarded units in their own right, and they certainly work very well together producing beautiful organic sound. The Audiophilleo 1 Mk2 retails at over $1000AUD alone, http://www.audiophilleo.com/Home/Buy, so hopefully this combination will provide good bang for your buck . shipping is roughly $39 dollars Pictures:

  8. Hi all, Just wondering if anyone here can advise on what good or bad results you've had with current production EL84's? They will be used in a Leak Stereo 20 power amp. Ones of interest so far are JJ's and Mullard re-issues but I've only just started the search so any suggestions much appreciated. If there was a Winged C el84 I'd be onto that as I've found there el34's and 6L6's to be excellent but as far as I know Svetlana never made Winged C el84's. Cheers, Legs11
  9. Hi all, I have an excellent valve amp tech who tells me I need to replace the coupling caps in my Leak Stereo 20. I have some Russian pio caps of the correct value as well as some M Cap supremes that would suit too so I am going to drop them over to the tech tomorrow. I imagine the pio caps would be best but if anybody has any info they can pass on in regards to caps they have used with this amp and which ones I should use that I already have I would be very grateful for the info. The pio are 0,1 K40y-9 and have 1000B and 8505 printed on them as well. Cheers, L11 Some pics of the amp when I was going to sell it http://www.stereo.net.au/forums/index.php?/topic/75002-fs-leak-stereo-20-valve-amp/?hl=leak
  10. Finally got around to mounting my CS4398 "Direct-Out" DAC board.. From HiFimeDIY, it comes with Good reviews excellent feedback from DIY'ers, and is especially designed for DIY in mind. It offers all pin outs that way you can DSD, coupled out or direct out, set DSD sample rates, tap spdif out, etc.. Probably the best feature is that you can replace the SRC module with jumpers and run the DAC in "NOS" mode!! At just over $100 its a real bargain ;-) My initial listening was using the SRC with unbalanced Coupled-Out straight into my Millet MiniMax headphone amp. Feeding the spdif input with MK3 Hiface.. ..Sounds really nice!! Can detect extra clarity and definitiion around the high-frequencies, and can detect another level of detail in the recordings.. Also, it doesn't seem to have that Harsh / Dry "DSP sound" that my DCX has.. My next listen will ne using the USB input with the SBT EDO app.. Eventually I will also try the Balanced Out (Not Coupled!), just need to make sure the next peice in the line can handle the DC offset Overall I'm very impressed... Direct-Out is the way to go Ta CM
  11. * Marantz CD65II CD player * Sydney (2077) * Good condition * $120 * My stash of "spares" was discovered and deemed surplus to requirements * EFT, CASH * Pictures below A classic Marantz CDP utilising the Philips TDA1541A DAC. This unit was made in Belgium. It is slightly older than the unit that sold earlier today going by the serial number (#070035 vs #070209). I have run the CDP since noon, non-stop, to check operation as best I can. Drawer opens and closes freely and unit indexes with the CDs I have tried. Headphone output functions. Buyer is free to test with their own CDs. Unit Dimensions 450 x 300 x 90 [mm] Unit Weight 3.6 [kg] Typical freight cost via Interparcel (TOLL) ~$25 to major Australian capital cities for a parcel 500 x 360 x 130 [mm] @ 4.6 [kg]

  13. Item: AudioSector NOS DAC Location: Melbourne Price: $300 $250 including delivery in Aus Item Condition: Used - excellent condition Reason for selling: Not using Payment Method: Pick up - cash, Paypal, Direct Deposit Extra Info: http://www.diyaudio....html#post599611 Picture: See above link. Will add pictures later. This is Peter Daniel's Audiosector NOS DAC he sold as a DIY kit. My unit is an early one and has the full compliment of Black Gate N caps and the CS8412 DIP input receiver. The IV resistors are Riken. It has Cardas RCA digital input. It is wired for 240V. Aside from the RCA input and IV resistors, it is exactly as pictured in the thread linked above. I have used it without a case. I used this DAC in my main system for over 5 years. It is a very good DAC, but I like my Metrum Octave a bit better.
  14. Item: 2 x matched quads NOS Reflektor 6H30P-DR tubes Location: Melbourne Price: $360.00 per quad firm (PCX's current rrp is $439.90 (without shipping), so probably around $499 shipped). A small donation will be made to SNA after this lot is sold Item Condition: 10/10 new/unused Reason for selling: Surplus to requirements Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: I have 2 new/unused matched quads of the rare 6H30P-DR tubes. These were purchased from PCX in the last 6 months & not used. I ordered these matched quads directly from company founder Chris Johnson who specially selected these 2 matched quads which were very tightly matched on The Parts Connexion's new tube testing equipment over 3 parameters (Mu, GM & Vn for the technically minded). I have listed the measurements below fyi. These tubes were manufactured in 1986. I recall Chris commenting he preferred the sound of stock from that year, but Chris will tell you that all mil-spec 6h30DR's prior to 1991 all sound about the same, with very minimal variance. I have inspected all the tubes which all display the exceptional engineering one expects of these mil-spec tubes. All stenciling is clear and unmarked with the synonymous Russian lettering denoting the DR tubes. The attention to detail and quality of these tubes is very evident. The 6H30P-DR is by far the best variant of the 6H30 family of triodes, and are rated at 10,000hrs (6H30N-EB's are rated at 5,000hrs). What can you expect from DR tubes?...a good improvement in resolution /frequency extension, noise, dynamics & durability (10,000 vs 5000hrs). These tubes are becoming harder to source, and as such prices are only going in one direction. This is your opportunity to make a significant saving on some awesome tubes! I am happy to break up a quad to sell a matched pair if someone else wants to buy the other pair within the quad. I am happy to ship your tubes anywhere in Australia via Express Post in a shipping box with plenty of padding to ensure a safe journey. Measurements - Quad No1 - (Pair no1) Mu - 14.6/15.3, Gm - 5580/5580, Vn - 81.4/81.3 Mu - 14.4/15.2, Gm - 5600/5580, Vn - 80.4/80.6 (Pair no2) Mu - 15.0/15.0, Gm - 5590/5550, Vn - 80.3/80.0 Mu - 14.8/14.8, Gm - 5560/5550, Vn - 81.3/81.1 Quad No2 - (Pair no3) Mu - 14.8/15.0, Gm - 5540/5560, Vn - 80.1/80.0 Mu - 14.4/14.6, Gm - 5500/5530, Vn - 80.1/80.0 (Pair No4) Mu - 15.0/15.0, Gm - 5580/5460, Vn - 81.1/81.3 Mu - 14.7/14.9, Gm - 5530/5450, Vn - 80.1/80.4 Pictures:
