  1. Further information: Very good player, excellent review. Being Used as DAC(Audio/Video) only. Maybe a bit too big for a DAC, and waste of its Blueray and CD player capabilities. Therefore try to simplify things. Photos:
  2. Hi Guys, Good day, I am new to DAC and I see here in SNA details on Speakers brands, details and price in every bracket. Just thinking to have list of DAC quality DAC. If in case we have the list already please point me. Below 1000$ 1001$-3000$ 3001-6000$ I am not sure does people spend more than 5000$ on DAC! To my knowledge : Gieseler(great Australia DAC) SoTM Chord RME Denafrips Atleast , it will give some pointers to the beginner(like me) in this community, to decide what is best when planning a DAC new/used. As we have lot of brands . Thank you
  3. Further information: I bought this few months ago for $700. It is an excellent DAC at this price range with clear mellow sound. But I decided to sell it because I miss the MQA sound.

  5. Item: Oppo HA-1 Price Range: IN LINE with previous sales here Item Condition: New or Used Extra Info: Based in Sydney, but happy to cover postage if need be. Please don't forget to report your post as FOUND when possible. (You can now delete this text).
  6. Further information: Purchased new from local Sydney HiFi store for $1895, it’s as-new with original box, comprehensive user manual and USB Lead. Selling as I’m using the DAC1 HDR that had a remote option, otherwise pretty much identical. This unit is solid and well made, manufactured in the USA. It is far more than just a high quality DAC, it can also function as a digital and analogue pre-amp, with an analogue input, with 5 digital inputs, ie. usb, optical and 3x coax. Has both balanced and unbalanced outputs and output can be either fixed or variable for connection direct to a power amp. The main feature however it was used for is its outstanding 2x headphone inputs, it was used mostly with a set of AKG 701/2 and HD600/650 headphones and are the perfect match. pickup preferred or alternately I will pack and post registered post with tracking and signature Australia wide for $25.

  7. Further information: I have boxes for Mojo and the usb cable. Chord Mojo Mojo is the ultimate portable DAC/Headphone Amp that allows you to hear more from your headphones – anywhere. A multi-award winner and listed product of the decade (Darko.audio), you can pair Mojo with your Smartphone, tablet, music player, DAP, games console, PC, Mac, or almost anything that allows audio out via USB, Optical, or Coax. Most importantly, whether you’re at home of on the go, you can experience up to eight hours of music playback meaning that you’ll never be caught loose. Because Mojo is designed and built in England using only the finest components, using the world’s most sophisticated machines, with a solid CNC milled aluminium shell with fun globe style LED indicators, you can be sure that Mojo still retains Chord Electronics renowned reliability, build quality, and tank proof aesthetic. But when you combine this with the latest trickle down FPGA DAC technology from the Hugo series and Dave products, Mojo is an unbeatable pocketable device that offers Hugo like performance for a fraction of the cost. Curious Mojo/Hugo link Cable 0.28m Since its release in 2015, the Curious usb cable has been the cable of choice for thousands of audiophiles around the world. Most people comment on the 3 dimensional space and lifelike dynamics that the Curious can bring to a computer based audio system. The improvement is immediate and quite obvious. Music simply sounds more real. Media reviews have been very complementary toward the Curious. Hi-Fi Advice says: “After using the Curious USB cable, you won’t ever want to go back to that flat and uninspiring sounding regular cable”. Positive Feedback Magazine says: “The Curious is open and wonderfully resolving while being musically engaging...” Stereo Times says: This is a great cable!

  9. A while ago ago I impulse purchased Clay's new TOTL DAC, leaving my Groß DAC is available for sale. There has been a lot written by owners here of Gieseler's DAC's (the full list being here: https://www.stereo.net.au/forums/topic/126626-gieseler-dac-reviews-impressions/). But just to give you a sample of what people have said about the Groß DAC: From Max Headroom: https://www.stereo.net.au/forums/topic/246058-ps-audio-vs-devialet/page/3/?tab=comments#comment-3899124 "At the other extreme is the Geiseler GroB DAC. I don't think I can find the words to explain how insanely good it is. @scumbag what system did you listen to the DS Jr and Geiseler GroB in? Did you say you couldn't tell a difference between the DirectStream and the Geiseler? Because the difference was so obvious to me and so dramatic its unbelievable. The Gieseler created more lifelike images of instruments and musicians, almost as if they're standing infront of you, better separation between instruments, better clarity with complex music. It's just a bargain at the asking price." From Rosco8: https://www.stereo.net.au/forums/topic/232237-gieseler-groß-dac-official-release/page/19/?tab=comments#comment-3872685 "A new Grob owner. It replaced a Cayin DAC (Valve/SS), and I also have an ARCAM-II DAC II, both quite good DACS, at least to my listening. Very pleased with the Grob .. been running a couple of weeks now, great detail and I can hear little nuances in recordings I haven't heard before. I listen to quite a range of material, from Tidal and FLACs I have rendered from my CD's. Beautiful rendering of vocals, good separation and detail." From bhobba: https://www.stereo.net.au/forums/topic/234066-groß-dac-owners-thread/?tab=comments#comment-3805282 "I will get right to it - my USB only GROB simply blows away the Direct Stream. That's right - a 2.3k or so DAC takes out, and make no mistake about it, the difference is not subtle, the much much more expensive Direct Stream with the latest software etc (I think its about $8k or so here in Aus)." From Conch: https://www.stereo.net.au/forums/topic/232237-gieseler-groß-dac-official-release/page/20/?tab=comments#comment-3886445 "I have compared the Groß to the Klein II, Chord 2qute and Accuphase Dac50 and the Groß has the edge over all of them imo. Better bass control, improved clarity, extremely musical and a natural tone that is engaging and enjoyable to listen to for hours on end with all genres of music." Adding my own 2 cents to the commentary, when I upgraded to the Groß from an iFi iDSD Micro, my immediate impression was how much 'more natural' or less digital the sound was from the Groß while detail retrieval was more extended at both ends. Needless to say that the Groß DAC is a truly excellent DAC and amongst the best Australian designed and made DACs made. The unit I am selling has been 'babied' since it was purchased and had it's firmware chip and software updated to the latest appropriate for a Windows based system. I'm sure Clay would be happy to provide you with the firmware for Linux or other based systems. The internal are set for XLR output but can be configured for RCA output (to resolve ground loop/hum issues). Included are the main DAC body, standard power supply, remote control (which never left it's packaging), and I can provide the user manual given to me and invoice of the purchase (PDF). Pickup is available in South Yarra, Melbourne and I am able to post Australia wide at your expense. Please don't hesitate to ask me any questions you may have. Reasonable offers will be considered.

  13. WEISS DAC2 I was using the Weiss DAC2 for computer based audio, as a DAC for a CD player (i.e. using the CD player as a transport only and sending the player's digital output to the DAC2) and also for listening to movies and even connected to a PS4 - the Weiss is a very versatile and neutral sounding, high quality DAC. The DAC2 especially good for decoding high resolution audio files (for audiophiles!) Inputs include: Balanced (AES/EBU); S/PDIF; Optical and Firewire (I used an Apple Thunderbolt to Firewire cable converter. I also bought some expensive US Firewire cables for the job. I will probably be selling the cables too). Outputs include: RCA and balanced (AES/EBU). The DAC2 is part of the current Weiss lineup and is made in Switzerland (FYI - The Weiss Minerva was based on the DAC2). For more info, check out the Weiss website: https://www.weiss.ch/download/dac2 PM me if you would like more information. Unit can be posted at buyer's expense. Photos:
  14. Hello, I just upgraded my speakers investing in a pair of KEF LS50. My source is digital only (Spotify, Idagio and my FLAC+MP3 files). Currently, I power my speakers with a Rega Brio 3. As a stremer/DAC I use the the Allo miniBOSS hooked to a Raspberry Pi Zero running Volumio. From the Volumio app I play FLAC and MP3 files from my NAS, I play from Spotify with Spotify Connect and from Idagio with AirPlay (both supported by Volumio). Now I would like to upgrade the amplifier but maybe also the streaming/DAC solution with a super integrated. Given a budget of about $1,500 what would you suggest? 1. Invest everything in an integrated w/ streamer (e.g. the POWERNODE 2i) and save money...? 2. Investing in a integrated without streamer, keeping my Allo miniBOSS. 3. Investing in a power amplifier (e.g. 2nd hand Schiit Vidar?) + preamp (maybe a preamp DAC?) Thanks!
  15. Hi all, First post here, so hopefully you don't mind me asking this. I have the Burson Conductor 3 headphone amp/DAC and the Campfire Audio Cascade over-ear headphones. I really like the combo and it sounds great to my ears but there are a bunch of settings on the Conductor 3 - I have no idea what they mean. Lol. Setup as follows: - PC is the only audio source - USB connection using the cable that came with the Conductor 3 - Kubuntu Linux 20.04 - PulseAudio disabled - ALSA controlling everything - No EQs setup (partly because I haven't yet tried, partly because I'm not sure I need to even bother) - Streaming either via Google Play Music set to highest quality or local FLAC files In a setup like this, which isn't top-end but also isn't totally crappy, is there any point messing with the settings on the Conductor 3? To be honest, the manual for the Conductor 3 is utter garbage and doesn't even include anything about half the settings (let alone getting stuck into talking about the typos and grammatical errors). The ESS9038 DAC that's in the Conductor 3 has a bunch of reference material available but I don't know enough about that side of things to know if they're worth messing with. Even opinions say "Nah mate don't bother with that" would be fine. Just want to make sure I'm getting the best experience possible with the setup I have. Thanks!
  16. As new MYTEK AUDIO BROOKLYN BRIDGE STREAMER & DAC This awesome little unit is only 2 months old and is a great little unit thats a Balanced Pre-Amp, DAC, Digital Streamer (Roon Endpoint aswell) and also has an MM/MC phono pre built in.

  17. Buyer to pay postage. Further information: Another "Power DAC" or "Direct Digital Amp" that doesn't contain a conventional DAC chip. It converts a digital PCM signal to an analogue PWM signal and uses that to power a class D amp directly. This one sounds much smoother than others I've heard, a little too smooth for my tastes actually. I expect it would pair well with bright-ish speakers. Comes with remote (not the one in the pic, that's the wrong one, my bad, it will ship with the correct one) and original box which contains the original cable pack (power, coax and usb). More info here. http://www.qlshifi.com/en/wzcapi/qa690.htm Photos:

  20. Hi, So currently I have nothing setup, but have narrowed down on speakers and am looking for what avr/power amp/dac are required to make work everything I desire. Id like to be able to have a 2ch setup for a main tv/kitchen/living area, with speakers to play: - music currently on a hard drive (internal and external); - tv/movies through streaming apps like Netflix through a Fetch box or a Xbox1 or a Chromecast; - streaming apps/Youtube through casting from an iphone. Sound quality of music is the priority, but I do find it much easier to hear spoken words on tv with separate speakers. I have been looking at Ascension speakers from Adelaide and talked to the guy there last year. The likely model will be around 150 wrms at 8 ohms. I will call him again to discuss, but if I remember correctly from what he recommended last time, an AVR to drive such speakers is expensive relative to the speakers just to offer extra channels that I don't need. Would a suitable alternative be a 2ch power amp plus a second device to hand all the digital inputs? Emotiva BASX A-300 or AMC: 2N100MKII-2 are both 150w 8ohm power amps for about $800, but an AVR that can do 150w at 8 ohms are about $5k - what am I missing here? Ive looked into this several times over the last year and I feel like I am just going round in circles. Any help would be appreciated. Cheers.
  21. Hi all As per the title, it has been awhile since the last time i owned few set of speakers, sub and receiver. I was and still is a beginner in this realm of Bit confused as to how to tie in the preamp vs amp, dac, tube amplifier vs solid state. Currently looking into a system that enables me to listen to music and watch occasional movies. Do we have a sticky page anywhere in this forum where i could read up on the above otherwise if someone could spare few minutes of their time and enlighten me then that too would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance....
  22. Extra Info: I purchased this from a SNA member around Christmas 2019 to drive my headphones. But I also bought a Woo Audio dac/amp at the same time. So I need to sell some Dac to get funding. The RRP was $6,800, and currently having a sale on Apollohifi for $4,499. I am priced it for sale. This unit is heavier than it looks like and packaged with a lot of high tech. It has volume control so can be used as a preamp as well. Chord's sound is balanced overall, the bass and guitar sounding natural and present in their spatial locations. Comes with remote, wall charger, and USB stick with drivers for windows. I do not have the original box, but can pack it safely for inter-state shipping at buyers' expense.

Very pleased with the Grob .. been running a couple of weeks now, great detail and I can hear little nuances in recordings I haven't heard before. I listen to quite a range of material, from Tidal and FLACs I have rendered from my CD's. Beautiful rendering of vocals, good separation and detail." From bhobba: https://www.stereo.net.au/forums/topic/234066-groß-dac-owners-thread/?tab=comments#comment-3805282 "I will get right to it - my USB only GROB simply blows away the Direct Stream. That's right - a 2.3k or so DAC takes out, and make no mistake about it, the difference is not subtle, the much much more expensive Direct Stream with the latest software etc (I think its about $8k or so here in Aus)." From Conch: https://www.stereo.net.au/forums/topic/232237-gieseler-groß-dac-official-release/page/20/?tab=comments#comment-3886445 "I have compared the Groß to the Klein II, Chord 2qute and Accuphase Dac50 and the Groß has the edge over all of them imo. Better bass control, improved clarity, extremely musical and a natural tone that is engaging and enjoyable to listen to for hours on end with all genres of music." Adding my own 2 cents to the commentary, when I upgraded to the Groß from an iFi iDSD Micro, my immediate impression was how much 'more natural' or less digital the sound was from the Groß while detail retrieval was more extended at both ends. Needless to say that the Groß DAC is a truly excellent DAC and amongst the best Australian designed and made DACs made. The unit I am selling has been 'babied' since it was purchased and had it's firmware chip and software updated to the latest appropriate for a Windows based system. I'm sure Clay would be happy to provide you with the firmware for Linux or other based systems. The internal are set for XLR output but can be configured for RCA output (to resolve ground loop/hum issues). Included are the main DAC body, standard power supply, remote control (which never left it's packaging), and I can provide the user manual given to me and invoice of the purchase (PDF). Pickup is available in South Yarra, Melbourne and I am able to post Australia wide at your expense. Please don't hesitate to ask me any questions you may have.
