Also, functions as a relatively good headphone Amp. I cant seem to locate the Remote Control, but I have on good authority (I’ve checked the compatibility on Logitech site) that any of the Logitech Remotes will interface with the unit, although I’ve never really used it myself as I have always used the unit as a Fixed Output Level mode, and used the Integrated AMP to control the volume etc. Specifications: DAC: ESS Sabre32 9018 chip Resolution: 32 bits Maximum Sampling Frequency: 84.672MHz Digital input: 2 x 24-bit/192kHz coaxial, 2 x 24-bit/96kHz Toslink optical, 1 x 24-bit/96kHz USB Digital output: 1 x coaxial, 1 x Toslink optical Output voltage: RCA: 2.25V RMS,XLR: 4.5V RMS Total Harmonic Distortion: RCA: <0.002%, XLR: <0.0008% Frequency response: 20Hz - 20kHz (± 0.2dB) Dynamic range: RCA: >115dB, XLR: >122dB Crosstalk: RCA: <-120dB, XLR: <-130dB Dimensions (H x W x D) 59 x 250 x252mm Colour Black Standard accessories power cord, user manual Photos: Advertisements without photos of the actual item will not be approved.

  4. Item: BENCHMARK DAC3 HGC + SoundAffairs Linear PSU & Mods Location: Bondi Junction, NSW Price: $4350 $3990 Item Condition: Excellent (being conservative, see note below*) Reason for selling: Have gone 'ethernet'... Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: BENCHMARK DAC3 HGC. Black version. James Soh SoundAffairs external AC to DC Linear PSU and mods—Ultima Femto Clock, Ultima Voltage Regulator, etc. Have had the unit since March 2019 (bought new). Including retail for the unit (A$3700), the price of the PSU and mods (A$2200), double-freight and import duties via Singapore (A$600), overall retail price is ~A$6500. Reason for selling is that I am moving in a different direction with my sources & DAC, to networked audio over ethernet. This unit is USB-based. DAC comes with original remote. *Some might say the unit is "as new" given that the little nicks on the PSU were there when it shipped to me! However, since it's been modded I suppose technically the Benchmark unit itself is definitely not "as new". PAYMENT VIA PAYPAL ONLY. Well, if you're interested in this listing you probably have done your research already. This listing is not for just the highly sought-after Benchmark DAC3 HGC—as if that weren't enough—but for that unit extensively modded by James Soh of SoundAffairs in Singapore, including his all-important custom Linear DC PSU: Benchmark DAC2 family modification WWW.MYSOUNDAFFAIRS.COM For customer reviews, please click here Change the simple oscillator circuit that is used for the ESS9018 Sabre DAC with our Ultima FEMTO low jitter clock then replaced the critical... Even in its BASE retail form, the Benchmark DAC3 HGC is on a number of high-profile current 'best of' lists, including Stereophile's Recommended Components in its highest "A+" designation: Recommended Components: 2019 Edition Digital Processors | Stereophile.com WWW.STEREOPHILE.COM Digital Processors Editor's Note: The sound of any particular CD transport/digital processor combination will be dependent on the datalink used-see "Bits is Bits?" by Christopher Dunn and... Quite some cost, logistics and waiting times in orchestrating this combo I can tell you...here's your chance to leverage my expended effort and get hold of this setup, ALMOST NEW, with NO WAIT TIME, and at a STEEP DISCOUNT. ESTIMATED DELIVERY COSTS AROUND $120 INSURED. THE ACTUAL COST MAY DEPEND ON DELIVERY LOCATION. PICKUP IN SYDNEY POSSIBLE TO AVOID THIS, SUBJECT TO PAYMENT BEING SECURED AHEAD OF TIME (PAYPAL ONLY). Photos: See extensive pics. The small nicks are visible on the PSU pics.
  5. 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 directly to my amplifier to bypass my AV system (but have the AV system connected to the same amplifier via HT Bypass). I could connect the DAC to the Marantz 8802A in pure direct mode but I understand that the Marantz will still do an A to D and D to A conversion for the volume control, which would restrict the performance of the DAC. Correct me if I’m wrong here. So the two candidates I’ve seen so far are: Simaudio Moon 890 Mytek Manhattan II Has anyone had experience with the above DAC/preamps? Any other DACs to consider? Really at the start of my investigations so look forward to hearing any thoughts or recommendations based on the above mentioned intentions. My gear is B&W 804D3, Simaudio Moon 860A, Marantz AV8802A, Rel S/3 SHO subwoofer connected via high level inputs, streaming via Audirvana via UPnP or the Tidal app on iOS. Thanks in advance
  6. Item: Metrum Acoustics Pavane (level 1) Location: Perth Price: $3500 Item Condition: Excellent Reason for selling: Too many DACs Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Preference will be given to local sale as I prefer buyers to know exactly what they are purchasing and have the opportunity to test. If no interest locally, I will post at cost. I am the original owner. Bought in February 2016 from Addicted to Audio. The DAC is in excellent condition and has been a wonderful mainstay in my setup. One of the RCA outputs will turn with some light pressure but it has been like that from day one and does not affect playback. Local buyers are welcome to inspect & test, just send me a private message. I am tied up most Sundays until 2:00pm but available after that as well as Monday to Friday evenings and Saturdays. Please be patient if sending a message, I do not live at my computer desk. Photos: Advertisements without photos of the actual item will not be approved.

  8. Item: PS Audio Perfectwave Transport (110V) and Perfectwave Dac Mark 1 (240V) Location: Canberra, ACT Price: $1600 for the two combined, and if required postage and PayPal fees Item Condition: Used Reason for selling: Upgraded last year to the Directstream DAC and player, so these aren't being used and I want to make room for new gear! Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: I purchased this Perfectwave DAC Mk1 (240V) new in 2011 and have been the sole owner. It's never missed a beat. While used cosmetically its in very good condition, with the removable plastic still in place covering the gloss black top plate, no visible marks on the casework, and the screen is clear and bright. Last year I got a really good combined deal on a new Directstream DAC and Player, so I went down that pathway instead of upgrading this one. Should you wish, PS Audio sell an upgrade kit to convert this sonically to a Directstream DAC for about $4000. I understand that the only differences then between an upgraded model and a brand new Directstream DAC is the IR port, which was also upgraded and becomes a round one not rectangular, and the absence of "Directstream" marking on the front casework. This DAC has the Bridge Mark 1 installed, but I've never used it, instead preferring a direct USB connection to a ROON Nucleus + for streaming. I purchased the Perfectwave Player used in 2012, using Audiogon, from the US, hence its a 110v model that requires a transformer, which is included. I've never had a problem with this arrangement, doesn't make any noise or cause any issue, but it may not suit everyone. When I received the player I soon found it would not read all discs (buyer beware!), and as a consequence I had a new DVD drive installed and its been super reliable ever since. Cosmetically the plastic cover was removed from the gloss black top plate, and there is some smudging of the gloss finish which I can't capture in photos. There are no scratches or marks to the casework. The "blue" colour of the power button is darker on the Transport, which can be seen in the photos. I assume this was just product variation. I've recently plugged this combo back into my system just to verify that everything works as it should. In comparison the newer Directstream Player and DAC are just more musically revealing and engaging, but of course they are also much more expensive. I'm very happy to demo to any locals who may be interested. The Remote control is of course included. I have the original double boxes for transportation. I would prefer local pickup, but not a problem to post. Photos: Advertisements without photos of the actual item will not be approved.

  10. Item: Chord Location: Qutest Price: $1650 + $50 insured delivery anywhere in mainland Aus. Item Condition: A1 Tip Top, as new! Reason for selling: NLR Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: PayPal or other financial fee services paid by buyer. Photos: Advertisements without photos of the actual item will not be approved. It is with some reluctance that I'm selling my amazing Chord Qutest. Hands down the best DAC I've ever owned and right up that worth the best I've listened to. If you are looking at this ad, then you don't need me to tell you anything about it other than reason for selling. Moving to a DSP room correction based pre/power combo that has its own very high quality DAC built in already. I'd like to keep it, but a $2500 piece of kit with no purpose has very low WAF! Grab yourself a bargain, unit is as new with all original packaging.

  12. Item: Concert Fidelity DAC-040BD (price reduced) Location: Melbourne Price: $3500 Item Condition: Excellent - rate 9/10 as per Audiogon rating. Reason for selling: Upgraded to DCS Vivaldi Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: I purchased this DAC (and also matching Pre-amplifer - now sold) directly from Masataka-san (Concert Fidelity) in Japan in 2014. This was built specifically for Australia with 240v transformers (vs european 230v). At the time these were the only CF items purchased directly for Australia (or so Masataka-san told me - there was no local distributor at the time so dealt direct with Masataka-san). This has switching on left panel. This item was returned to Concert Fidelity in 2015 as there was a battery upgrade option (which was provided to me free of cost except shipping). Comes with manual, boxes, gloves etc and PSVane tubes. Hardly used and presents as new. Happy to entertain a deal with matching ZL200 mono blocks also for sale.

  14. Item: Maverick Audio Tube Magic D1 - Plus Edition Location: Mid North Coast NSW Price: $170 + freight Item Condition: Recently Serviced 8/10 Reason for selling: Upgraded to DAC / Streamer Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Used this as a Pre / DAC (as it has a volume control) that I connected directly to my Power Amp. Very versatile with 3 x digital inputs as well as an analogue. Very nice sound, see reviews online. Purchased from Mike Lenehan, this was the upgraded plus edition that Mike used in his system for a while. I had it serviced recently by Kimil Elelectronics in Sydney so its been checked and is ready to go. Selling for what it cost me to get it serviced so a good deal for someone wanting a nice DAC / Headphone amp. https://www.mav-audio.com/base/product/d1p/hw_d1p https://www.head-fi.org/showcase/maverick-audio-tubemagic-d1-plus-dac.15688/ Can deliver to Sydney or Gold Coast or in between as I travel regularly to both.

Item: Ayon S10 mk2 DAC/Stremaer Location: Sydney Northwest Price: $7600 RRP $11500 Item Condition: 6 months old Reason for selling: Upgrading to Signature Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: A world class DAC and streamer. Suprisingly works seamlessly with all remote controls including IPhone IPad and android. It basically behaves like and old good CD player in terms of remote functions, plus more. Very fast navigation through the interface makes a joy to use it 🙂 It has 2x 6H30 output tubes and audiophile caps. I wish I have bought the signature version at the first place, if I had money.

  18. Hi, My current system is Musical Fidelity M3i integrated amp (2016?), Mission 753 (mid 90s i think) floor standers and I use Chromecast Audio (CCA) to stream Spotify. I want to integrate a TV into the setup and as far as i cant tell new TVs don't have RCA output...so i'm looking for a DAC with TOSLINK / Digital Audio (optical). My friend has a Cambridge Dacmagic+ and swears by it. Reading this forum the Topper D50 seems to be quite highly regarded. Also the latest version D50s has bluetooth so maybe I could use that rather than CCA for Spotify? I feel like this is a good time to upgrade the CCA, as the amp / speakers probably deserve a something better? Any advice would be greatly appreciated! I'm pretty flexible with budget. Thanks
  19. Item: BENCHMARK DAC3 HGC + SoundAffairs Linear PSU & Mods Location: Bondi Junction, NSW Price: $4350 Item Condition: Excellent (being conservative, see note below*) Reason for selling: Have gone 'ethernet'...

  20. Item: M2Tech HiFace 2 Location: Northern NSW Price: $120 including Shipping Item Condition: Excellent Reason for selling: NLR - Buying a dedicated Streamer Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Bought for $320 1.5 yrs ago.

  21. Item: RME ADI-2 DAC fs Location: Melbourne Price: $1100 Item Condition: Excellent Reason for selling: Clearing out 2nd system Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: I bought this new around 6 months ago, and have the box so can ship if required (at buyers cost). Specifications are at the RME site - https://www.rme-audio.de/adi-2-dac.html I've used this as a preamp/DAC into NC1200 mono blocks with XLR, and into Direct Mode on a Yamaha A-S1000 amplifier with RCA. The RME's a very solid unit, with a DAC that has 5 modes (I prefer the sharpest, but there's options for your taste, including NOS mode). The most exciting feature is the dynamic loudness which backs off as the volume is increased. This works seamlessly and you can set the volume at which it's off (or not use it at all). The DAC comes with a remote control, which works really well - 4 preset actions with volume and input selection. I think this is around $1700 new. Photos:
  22. Item: Bryston BDA-1 DAC in silver Location: Camberwell, Vic (I am also happy to post at your cost and risk; I do have the original packaging) Price: $1250 Item Condition: Excellent, almost new condition. I only purchased it about 6 months ago. Reason for selling: No longer required as I have changed my setup Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: This is the best DAC I have ever owned and I'm sad to see it go! IMO, it has wonderful detail and clarity without losing any of the warmth or musicality, especially when matched with the right components. I have been constantly surprised over the last few months about the number of times it has revealed something new in my music that I had not noticed before. However, I've changed my setup to Simaudio and I just can't justify keeping the Bryston DAC any longer. It is in almost new condition and comes with all the original packaging and manuals too. Any questions, please ask! Photos: Advertisements without photos of the actual item will not be approved.
  23. Item: Custom Lampizator Amber 2 R2R & Volume Control Location: Auckland NZ Price: $4600AUD Item Condition: Mint/Near New Reason for selling: Change of direction Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal - buyer pays fees or send as friend Extra Info: Pretty much NIB Custom Lampizator Amber 2 still sat in its original double cardbox box unused. This is no ordinary Amber 2 though, with the same R2R DAC board from the Atlantic, 44khz Super Clock, 5v 5Y3 Rectifier, the Baltic Analog output section with 6N6P tubes, remote volume control with analog in and dual parallel analog outputs, rca spdif, toslink, BNC and USB - The works! I was informed by the NZ dealer that the final tuning was done by Lukasz himself. I had this delivered in Feb 2019, with big plans for an entire new system based around the Lampizator, but life circumstances changed and I have downsized my system significantly. It had approx 1 months use and has been boxed since then. I was hoping to put it back in the system, but time to let it go to a home where it will see the use it deserves. This is a very flexible and amazing sounding DAC/Pre that can be the control centre of your entire system. The lampizator sound is in full effect: detailed, musical, smooth, big and what I can only describe as expensive sounding. I have fully tested prior to listing and everything is 100%. The Lampizator is an absolutely mint condition with both Factory warranty stickers intact, which means there is over 4 years to go on the Lampizator transferable warranty. The Power supply is switchable between 230v and 115V so good for the most of the world. If you are in the market for a new Lampizator Amber, get this instead and grab $2400nzd of upgrades for free for less than the price of the current Amber. I'll even throw in an extra set of 6N6P and an extra 5Y3. Shipping to Aus would be approx $250 AUD. Will consider trade/exchange for a banging set of higher power Tube Mono Blocks - for those that would love the DAC but don't have $5k sat around BUT (like most of us) have a bunch of extra gear collecting dust If you have something post in the comments and I'll check em out. Looking for 60W plus, would love a set of mc60’s.
  24. Item: Denafrips Pontus R2R DAC Location: VIC, Hawthorn Price: $1800 Item Condition: Up for sale this is amazing resistor ladder DAC. It is the black version (ref pictures). I had a little trouble staying out of the way of the light, so the patterns you see are my shadow blocking the window. It is as-new, kept in a pet and smoke-free environment. It has a warm, luscious sound with a lovely midrange. Top end is detailed and sweet. You can see the internals here: https://www.denafrips.com/pontus It is a seriously engineered DAC & it sounds amazing. Sad to see it go but my setup has changed around it. It supports DSD & PCM. Purchased from Vinshine audio in Jul 2017, condition is almost new – there’s just some cosmetic wear. There is a tiny little chip in the middle of the front panel which you can slightly see in the photos. I didn’t even notice it until I looked up close for taking photos. The top panel has some shading differences of where I had my little integrated sitting on top of it. You can find reviews online, particularly of the Ares & Terminator which share the same lineage. Unfortunately I did not keep the box. If I need to post, I’ll make sure its well protected. Warrant info: Warranty details explained: https://www.vinshineaudio.com/warranty Warranty is good through to ~end July 2020. It is transferable to the new owner that nabs this unit If any issues come up requiring repair, the unit must be shipped to Denafrips (customer pays for shipping), but all repairs/replacement is covered by Denafrips.

  25. Hi All, As a long time Cyrus user have been using the DAC integrated in a Model 8xpd integrated amp with external PSXR power supply. In the last year I have migrated to running it as a preamp into a set of X200 mono blocks. Cyrus have this year released an upgrade to the internal DAC that supports DSD512, 32bit 768KHz internal and asynchronous USB bridge. This is based on an ESS Sabre DAC (although I'm not sure of the exact chipset). https://www.cyrusaudio.com/products/qxr-upgrade-card/ So I have one of these on order. Does anyone have any experience with it? Feedback? I know there are plenty of external DAC options but I liked the idea of minimising the number of boxes. Cheers.
