  1. Hi all. I have a silly question. I have a great Wyred4Sound STP-SE preamp. https://wyred4sound.com/products/pre-amps/stp-se Current in's: phono, digital, cd (all RCA) out: xlr to power amp (solid state) there are 3 choices on the back for output - 2 sets xlr and 1 set rca. I'd love to be able to also run some tube mono's off the pre, and to be able to choose which power amp to run by assigning the selector switch (as with the inputs). Thus, no plugging/unplugging. My understanding, however, is that all outputs are active (for running biamp configurations, or maybe a powered sub), but I'm interested to know if it's possible to have such a "switchable" setup? if it is indeed possible, can one also manage to hook up speaker cables in such as way as to avoid switching back and forth? cheers, Mat

  3. Item: Wyred 4 Sound Recovery USB Reclocker - Rev A Location: Perth Price: $90 Item Condition: Very good Reason for selling: NLR Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: This is a great USB reclocker or "decrapifier" that cleans up the USB signal going into your DAC. The Recovery is very well reviewed but please note that this is a Rev A model without the new board. The Rev A doesn't work with some DAC's so check the Wyred4sound web site or the online forums to see if your DAC would be affected. You can also get a board upgrade done through Wyred4sound to fix the issue. Will post at buyers expense and comes in original packaging. Apologies for stock photos, can get actual images if required. Once again, Wyred 4 Sound offers a fantastic audio product at an affordable price! Based on the success of the Remedy and known benefits of jitter reduction in a digital signal, we're proud to present the Recovery USB reclocker (or "RUR" as it's been coined on the Computer Audiophile forum). As it's name implies, the Recovery restores the original integrity of the USB signal. Usage couldn't be simpler: just insert the Recovery between USB source and DAC and instantly enjoy the benefits of a clean signal and much improved sonic quality. Pictures:

  7. Item: Wyred4Sound Remedy Reclocker + Gieseler Linear Power SupplyLocation: Cleveland, QLD (4163)Price: $475 (Shipping +$15, PayPal +3%)Item Condition: Used, very good conditionReason for selling: No longer required.Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal (+3%) , Bank TransferExtra Info: Listing is for a Wyred4Sound Remedy Reclocker (purchased 20-Oct-2015) and a Gieseler Linear PSU (purchased 31-Dec-2015), original Australian printed invoices are included for both items. Used between a Sonos Connect and a Devialet 120 to great effect, reduced jitter was immediately noticable and converted the Connect into a high-performance device. Although the reviews for the Reclocker have generally been very positive, I've found that the performance jump added when using the Gieseler Linear PSU to the Reclocker took its performance into a whole new realm (a bigger jump than the reclocker itself out of the box!) , and once heard with it, couldn't recommend listening without it. I've found the performance jump gained with this combo scales well when using even better sources/dac, not just entry/mid level etc. Current RRP $870+ Review: http://www.digitalaudioreview.net/2014/08/wyred4sound-remedy-spdif-reclocker-review/ Website: https://wyred4sound.com/products/digital-converters/remedy-reclocker Reclocker Features (from website): Utilizes an incredible Femto-grade clock Superior jitter reduction Toslink and Coaxial digital inputs Toslink, Coaxial, BNC digital outputs 96kHz output sampling frequency* Digital inputs support up to 24/192kHz 9VDC power supply included 5 year warranty Gieseler Linear PSU: Description This linear low noise DC power supply is designed to improve the performance of digital audio accessory devices that are normally powered by small SMPS plug-packs. All the internal components are of high quality & are selected for reliability & sound quality where applicable. Capacitors are Nichicon Fine Gold, Panasonic or Elna Silmic II’s. It is powered by external IE core transformers. These have a distinct advantage over the usual Toroidal type as they have better isolation between the windings & lower bandwidth means less HF noise coming in via the mains. Also being external there is less radiated hum entering the power supply circuitry. Noise, hum & ripple levels are very low due to the common mode choke pre filtering & low noise Linear Technology high performance regulators. Also what helps to reduce noise as well is the use of Schottky diodes & a transformer LC snubber. The DC output cable/connection is an area that is often neglected; so I have gone to extra lengths here to get it right. The DC output on the supply uses a Neutrik 6 Amp XLR gold pin socket. The supplied DC cable uses a matching Neutrik gold pin plug hand soldered to a 10A lead with moulded DC barrel connector for ruggedness. Specifications Noise level is approximately 20 uV to 40 uV d. Ripple & hum rejection is approximately 100 dB. Short circuit & thermal protection. Website: http://gieseler.com.au/ProductsPage/index.html Pictures:
  8. Here is my system. I have finally finished a lot of the tweaks I have been experimenting with. The MB2se's sound much, much better than they did at the AV show (thankfully). Assisi paid a visit today to try out a few things and have a listen. He owns ML2 limited's and a PS Audio PWDac as well. We both felt the PMC MB2se's have the same beautiful midrange and treble as the ML2's. The PMC's effortlessly disappear and reproduce realistic soundstage width and depth. In my space (quite large and open) the bass is perfectly proportioned and controlled. The sound is very much "live".

  10. I spent a fascinating day today with @@Assisi listening to his setup with Lenehan ML2 limited speakers, BMC amplifier, PS Audio DirectStream DAC and Antipodes DX server. It is a lovely system and John was very gracious host. The other reason for my visit was to compare a similar computer server to the Antipodes. My Wyred4Sound MS2 is similar in that it is a server based on the popular Votexbox software platform. It differs from the Antipodes in the attention to hardware implementation, power supply and the fact it uses solid state storage. Antipodes has tweaked the Vortexbox platform software as well. My W4S server has been augmented by the addition of a custom made Sonore external linear power supply with Cardas connector and cord. After briefly trying the JCAT USB cable to establish that it was superior (albeit not as obviously as it is in my system) we did some ABX comparisons between the servers. Both servers sounded very nice, and for some music, we were struggling to discern much difference. But there were some key songs where, when compared critically, the Antipodes made the music sound more delicate, nuanced and integrated as a whole. On price differential for these 2 servers, we are well into the realm of diminishing returns. Despite this fact, the effect of the Antipodes on creating a more musically coherent picture was clear to both of us. The comparison suggests to me that 1) servers do influence SQ (even with a DAC as good as the DS), and 2) the hardware implementation and attention to detail in the server also make a difference. Certainly an interesting day. Thank you John for the hospitality and chance to listen to your wonderful system again.

  13. I use a W4S DAC 2 which I’m tempted to have upgraded to the DSDse version. The improvements I’m most immediately interested in are better USB and the capacity to switch on Audivarna’s integer mode (not able to do so for the DAC 2); but the DSD capability would also be a useful bit of future-proofing. The trouble is that I’d need to risk sending the DAC 2 on a return trip to sunny California since the upgrades are only being done in the W4S factory there. I suppose it’s possible to try to sell the DAC 2 and buy a brand new DSDse, but I suspect there’d be a bit of a loss involved compared to the upgrade path. My question, especially to those who’ve heard the DAC 2 DSDse: are the improvements worth sending my current DAC away for modding or should I really be looking at other DSD-capable DACs? If I opt for a replacement I’d probably be looking at spending somewhere between $2500 and $4000 (though with a bit of provocation, maybe more). I wouldn’t have any reservations about buying a new DSDse if it came down to that, but I’d be interested to know how it stacks up against similarly priced DACs. (There’s no point, btw, suggesting that I audition this or that since the local village store doesn’t stock much in the way of hifi equipment).
  14. The June meeting of the Sydney Audio Club sees us once again at Dence Park for an afternoon of fine music and sound and convivial 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. This month, computer audio will take centre stage. No doubt you’ve noticed there are fewer and fewer shops where you can buy CDs/SACDs and vinyl these days – it is expected that that will only get worse. Downloads are very prevalent now, and thanks to sites such as HD Tracks you can download high-res music. Whether you are already a computer audio whiz or a newbie considering it all, don’t miss this meeting. We will have a plethora of DACs and USB converters powered by an Ultrabook front-end. The equipment line up is as follows: Wyred4Sound DAC2 – The DAC2 utilizes the famous ESS Reference Audio 32 bit DAC. Provides 24-bit 192kHz Asynchronous USB input, proprietary discrete output stages, ESS Time Jitter Domain Eliminator, fully balanced design with balanced inputs and balanced outputs, upgradable boards and oversized toroidal transformer. Bryston BDA-1 DAC – The BDA-1 is a state-of-the-art external DAC using fully discrete Class-A proprietary Bryston analog circuits, two independent linear power supplies and dual Crystal CS-4398 DAC chips. It features an impressive array of inputs for USB, COAX, OPTICAL, AES-EBU and BNC equipped digital devices. For audio outputs, the BDA-1 offers both balanced XLR as well as unbalanced RCA stereo connectors on the rear panel. The BDA-1 is RS-232 software upgradeable. Bryston BDP-1 Digital Music Player - The BDP-1 focuses solely on playing high resolution files and will support 16 and 24-bit word lengths and 44.1, 48, 88.2, 96, 176.4 and 192kHz sampling frequencies. It accesses these digital files from any USB device – either thumb-drive or hard-drive. The easiest way to understand the BDP-1 is to think of it as a 21st century updated CD player. Instead of CD’s as the music source though, it utilizes USB thumb drives or USB hard-drives as the music storage source. Empirical Audio Off-Ramp 5 USB Converter – The Off-Ramp 5 is a fifth-generation product that supports sample-rates of up to 24/192 and uses Asynchronous USB protocol for reduced jitter. The Off-Ramp 5 also includes an HDMI I2S output, so that DACs with these inputs (such as the W4S DAC2) can be driven directly avoiding S/PDIF conversions. Toshiba Ultrabook with Windows 7 and SSD running JRiver Media Centre. Dell 27†Ultra HD display panel. Oppo BDP-95 Universal player. Wyred4Sound STP-SE preamp. Classe CA400 stereo amplifier – 400wpc into 8 ohms. B&W 801 Series 2 speakers. As usual, the second half of the music sessions will be BYO. Members and guests are welcome to offer music to share with us all. So bring along your favourite music on CD/DVD-A/Bluray (audio only) or USB flash drives - 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. Members and Guests 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 Address: 26 Stanley St, Epping Doors open 1pm Meeting starts at 2pm Best regards, Tom Waters President Sydney Audio Club www.sydneyaudioclub.org.au tomwaters@sydneyaudioclub.org.au
