  1. I am considering the purchase of a new DAC, my key requirements being: It supports MQA It has a preamplifier built in with Home Theatre (HT) Bypass (supporting balanced XLR inputs from an AV preprocessor) The sound quality should be a substantial upgrade over my Marantz AV8802A AV preprocessor Not essential, but it ideally should have network streaming built in, with the primary objective to stream Tidal I’m finding it surprisingly difficult to find units that tick all the above boxes. Specifically very few DACs have HT Bypass. I’d like to connect the DAC
  2. Further information: As new, just over 1 month old, comes in original packaging with all accessories: Remote USB Cable Power Cord Bluetooth Antenna Great sounding all rounder with good bass. See Link below for review:
  3. Further information: Really loved this DAC and only reason for selling is to raise funds for a PS Audio DS DAC.

  4. Item: Integrated Amp with onboard DAC Price Range: <$3000 Item Condition: Used Extra Info: Must Haves: DAC Min 70w/Channel HT Bypass Universal remote compatibility (this is lowest priority and could be worked around) I was originally searching for an amp that could also stream but have decided to use the existing Sonos connect to handle those duties and upgrade it separately in future.
  5. Further information: Chord Mojo with Miter leather case in great condition. Selling as have moved to desktop amp setup. Comes with original box and USB charging cable.

  6. Item: Matrix Audio X-Sabre Pro or iFi Pro iDSD or other DACs Price Range: Depend on condition Item Condition: New or Used Extra Info: Basically want to upgrade my DAC. Other competitors will be considered as well. PS: Prefer non-MQA version of Matrix X-Sabre Pro, but I guess hard to find in Oz. Please don't forget to report your post as FOUND when possible. (You can now delete this text).
  7. Further information Bought new from Apollo Hi Fi, Sydney circa 2014 for around $1500. Described by Audiolab as a ‘high-quality DAC + CD’ device, more than just a CD player. The player has had rare, intermittent use as I mostly listen to records. Moving to SACD player so this player no longer needed. Had it professionally re-capped recently by Audiovisual Devices, Brisbane in preparation for sale and the new caps are an upgrade from the original factory installed ones. Nichicon I think they said. Includes original box, remote and manual. Cosmetically 8/10 w
  8. Further information: Great DAC which trebles (?) as a headphone amp and bluetooth receiver which, given the patchy internet I’ve had over the last few weeks, has been a lifesaver. It works well as a digital hub. I fed both my Bluesound Node 2 and NAD c516BEE cd player through it and it greatly improved the sound of both. It has two digital and 2 coax inputs. It also has both fixed and variable analog outputs so can be used as a pre-amp alongside a power amp if needed. The headphone amp is particularly good and is the one used in the Arcam A49 amp. It compares

  14. Further information: Topping E30 DAC with pre-amp function In excellent condition (mint, except for one small rub mark on the underside front corner - invisible when in use, see last photo). Bought from another SNA member for temporary use until I bought the new Gieseler Kompakt DAC. Like the Gieseler DAC range, uses an AKM chip (the AKM4493EQ). Sounds extremely good for its price. Supplied with all of the original items (USB A-B cable, Micro USB to barrel plug 5V cable, remote, and all original packaging). This DAC can
  15. Further information: Invoice from July 2020 will be provided. Fully under warranty. Don't miss it. The hip-dac supports hi-res PCM up to 384kHz as well as DSD256 and MQA as used by Tidal’s ‘Master’ tier. Balanced. Because you’re worth it. Balanced audio circuits mean less unwanted noise. The hip-dac boasts a balanced, analogue stage to bring you the best musicality for miles around. It sports a 4.4mm balanced output for balanced headphone cables/connectors. For those ‘hissy’ IEMs, use the 3.5mm S-Balanced. Enjoy all the benefits of balanced from your singl
  16. Further information: For your consideration is my pimped Muji Studio DAC II. In it's stock form it's nothing special though with the upgrades it's had it's very much a reference level DAC with excellent detail and massive, spacious sound stage. Not as warm sounding as you might expect for unit with tube output. It's had quite a bit of work done to it and upgrades including: Conversion from 110 to 240VAC Conversion from oversampling to non oversampling (NOS) mode of operation Replaced the TDA1541A R1 chip with a rare early Holland made TDA1541
  17. Further information: Tubadour III R2R NOS Tube DAC. RRP: $2140 AUD direct from USA manufacturer. Please ad 30% for shipping, import duty, tax and customs fees in Australia. Custom made for 230V. Only 1 month old - unexpected downsizing. From Audio Mirror: It is based on Analog devices AD1865N-K flagship DAC chip. This is the best and most analog and musical sounding DAC chip ever made. Tubes used in the DAC are 5977 subminiature tubes. They are mounted on a special tube adaptor, which is plugged into a regular 9 pin tube socket.
  18. Further information: This is a DIY Dual PCM1702 20bit NOS R2R DAC with optical and coaxial input. Each channel comes with an OPA604 as IV conversion and an OPA2134 for low pass filter. Power transformer is a 60VA one. The DAC sounds excellent, dynamic and natural.

  19. Further information: probably the best streamer On the market. Music is analog foot tapping and addictive. This is nearly 40%!off RRP!!!! Have all boxes etc Don't want to split. Photos:
  20. Been going through the Gieseler DAC threads to dig up owners’ reviews & impressions over the past 2 few years. Together, they provided an impressive picture of how well Clay has made his DACs and has lead me to consider purchase the upcoming Groß DAC with balanced outputs.

  22. Rega DAC in black. Sounds great. Been using it with a basic Sony CD player and it really improves the sound stage (to my ears). That CD player gave up the ghost and I've got my eyes on adding a decent CD player, so this has become surplus. Also looks great on a shagpile rug.
  23. Awesome little portable DAC/Headphone amp with all the accessories and manuals. Accessories: USB cable Optical connector 3.5mm to RCA connector Soft carry pouch silcon bands to strap to your player manuals Price includes shipping anywhere in Aus.

  24. Further information: Still in two minds whether to just keep this, box it up and save it for a rainy day. Just sold my matching Brio-R, so this can go too. Is in super condition, mint, like new. I am the only owner, bought this new at Living Sound & Vision in the Valley. Have been using this in a second system set-up connected to my BluSound Node 2. Used to have it paired with a Apollo-R in the past too (which was a great combo, much like it's big brother the Saturn-R). Would prefer local buyer, but have the original box/packaging, so can post at buye
  25. Hello there, Some of you may remember my journey into buying a 2 channel system. I'm very happy with my purchase, however, I'm just wondering if any of you have any experience in using cheap USB DACs. As part of my Primare NP5 streamer purchase I was gifted a free three-month trial for Tidal Hi-Fi (thanks @gwurbfor bringing this to my attention). When streaming via Chromecast and Apple Airplay through the NP5 I am unable to stream Master quality (this isn't a bad thing as Hi-Fi quality is still sounding good and is better than the quality through Spotify). However, sho
