  1. Item: Wyred 4 Sound DAC 2 with Remote Control (Sabre reference 9018 DAC Chip) - Made in USA Location: Brisbane (bayside) Price: 550 + Shipping Item Condition: Used but in mint conditions and working well with no issues. Reason for selling: NLR Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Bank Transfer, Paypal (Buyer to pay fees) Extra Info: USA made, with volume control (can be used as a pre-amp) and Sabre reference 9018 DAC which is known for warmer sound. I have had many DACs in the past and this one replaced NAD M51. Sound quality is very smooth / warmer and another level from NAD M51. Features: HT bypass analogue RCA input. 6 Digital inputs (I2S, AES/EBU, 2 Toslink, 2 Coax) One USB input (May not work with Windows 10 though) Analogue Stereo output (Balanced and RCA) Remote Control 210-260V Design Features Perfection takes time, and the time is now. The DAC-2 is finally here! There are many contributions which make the DAC-2 an industry leading DAC. A big thanks goes out to ESS for the implementation of the finest DAC chip on the market, the Sabre reference 9018 DAC. The DAC-2 can process signals up to 32 bits in length, and 200 kHz in sampling frequency through the coax digital inputs. Because of the limitations of Optical transmission, only 176.4kHz has proven to be reliable through the TOSLINK inputs. You will find that some optical inputs will operate at rates up to 192 kHz, but is not guaranteed. The USB input will process signals up to 24 bit in length, and sample rates up to 192 kHz. The heart and soul of the DAC-2 uses the 8ch ESS chip in quad-differential mode meaning that there are actually 4 differential D-A conversion circuits for each channel in parallel. This greatly helps achieve the spectacular S/N ratio and output drive capability. Each of the Coax inputs are transformer coupled to isolate the source while maintaining proper loading. To ensure that the lowest input signal level will satisfy the digital conversion engine, the signals also pass through TTL buffers to maintain consistent signal integrity. To simplify input selection, the ESS chip is also used as the receiver chip and performs all the signal selection and routing. Automatic signal up-sampling is done internally to keep output filtering to a minimum, and is a crucial part of the jitter elimination. To ensure source immunity, the time domain jitter elimination is executed as the signal enters the DAC chip by re-clocking to the desired rate selected by the ESS chip. With an oversized toroid, more than 115,000uF of capacitance, 3 stages of filtering and 13 regulation points, the power-supply in the DAC-2 is surely overbuilt. The analog output stages are powered by a separate power-supply to ensure isolation from the digital front-end. House-keeping voltages also use separate supplies to guarantee minimal supply contamination. The digital board is supplied with 7 out of the 13 dedicated regulators to ensure tight tolerances, and consistent power delivery. The best part of the DAC-2 is the proprietary discrete output stages which represent the beginning of the analog generation. You will quickly find why W4S spent so much time developing the cleanest, most transparent, and natural sounding output stage. Instead of choosing the simple path like many others, we took the “dirt road” and it paid off big time. Our grain-free sound stage reproduction is the product of our discrete dual-differential FET input amplifier stage which uses all Dale RN55d resistors for precise control. Because of the dual differential circuits, the completely balanced signal offers balanced and unbalanced outputs which both take advantage of common-mode rejection. To complete the package, we decided to connect a 2 line display for easy verification of input selection, sample rate, and volume level. You will notice that when the DAC is locked onto a signal, the sample rate will be shown, when the signal is lost, the sample rate will read as ----. The up and down buttons on either side of the power button will allow for input and volume control up and down scrolling. From the front panel, you can toggle between volume and input selection by quickly pressing the power button. If you push and hold the power button in either input or volume mode, the DAC will power down. When the unit is off, you can quickly tap the power button to bring the unit back to life. Comes with fully functional Remote and Power Code. No original packing but will be packed safely for shipping if required.

  2. Hi, I want to watch UHD movies through my stereo setup. TV to be connected to the DAC via Toslink. Is the Topping D30 good enough for this? Any other budget recommendations will be apreciated. Cheers.
  3. Hey All. So I am wanting to get a DAC and Headphone AMP, either as one unit or a stack is fine. $500 budget. No real preference for sound, just clean, natural, no excess bass or treble boost. Will be plugged into PC of cause, so USB, Toslink and so on will be handy. Also got about $300 for a closed set of headphones with similar sounding characteristics. Suggestions will be very helpful thanks, must be able to buy online from a decent seller, no dodgy over sea's stuff please.
  4. Item: Denafrips Terminator DAC Location: Sunshine Coast QLD Price: $5,200 Item Condition: Excellent Reason for selling: Upgraded, no longer used Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Transferable warranty. Original double box/packaging. No power cord. Black Termie in excellent condition. Willing to post within Australia only, at buyers expense. Just over 12 months old. Warranty transferable ( I need to notify Alvin at Vinshine to let him know the new owners details). Genuine reason for sale - upgraded to a DAC costing over 3 times the price of the Termie. The Termie is such a wonderful sounding DAC and a bargain both in terms of sound and build quality. I could have EASILY stayed with it but an opportunity to get the other DAC arose and I just couldn't resist. Add PayPal fee (if not paying via family etc). Double boxed 56cm x 60 x 26. It should be just under the 22kg max allowed by Aust Post but I'll have to check.
  5. Review Setup GIESELER Groß DAC with usb only input option (standard has s/pdif & usb inputs). Groß connected to Sotm SMS-200 with Audioquest Carbon usb cable. Used XLR outputs to SGR CX3B (Mk 1) powered speakers. Bass optimised with dual subs (SVS SB13U, SB-2000). SMS-200 bridged to Synology DS414 NAS to access music. Used MPD server on SMS-200 and MPDroid on phone for playback. Update 17 Feb 18: Upgraded equipment with Uptone ISO Regen, Behringer DCX2496 with Behringer Mods. Swapped positions of subs with SB13U doing more and further bass optimisation using Multi Sub Optimisation. Update 17 May 18: Upgraded SMS-200 to Ultra version which brought a lot more nuance the music. External Appearance & Remote The unit has a smart looking front, with a power button and 4 line display. Update 17 Oct: new firmware removed Channel, now 3 line display The rear panel has a usb input, XLR and RCA outputs and a 9V AC input from an external transformer to feed low noise internal PSU's. Update 17 Oct: Note that Groß has output transformers which allows it to be directly connected to power amps or powered speakers. Smaller and much lighter than previous Audiolab 8200CDQ (DAC plus pre-pro, CD player, headphone amp). 8200CDQ displayed both the bit depth and sample rate but Groß only the sample rate. Groß display could do with brightness adjustment because it was too bright at night. The remote was slim and easy to use. Red power button cycled through home menu, screen off, large volume and filter display. Channel Up/Down cycled through filters, Volume Up/Down, plus mute button. Volume control was digital with a bypass available for a pre-pro. In my case, requested that bypass be disabled to prevent an accidental overload on the amps in the CX3Bs. Setting up on the SMS-200 was straight forward. After plugging the usb cable into Groß, the SMS-200 picked up the DAC. Then, manually changed DAC setting from non-DSD to DoP in Eunhasu MPD setup. Update 17 Feb 18: using DSD instead of DoP. DAC Comparison As expected, Groß out-performed 4 years old 8200CDQ (which was highly acclaimed then). The difference was marked when switching back to the 8200CDQ after a few hours on the Groß, with less detail, transparency and naturalness among many things lacking. Looking forward to reviews of others comparing Groß with more recent DACs. Update 17 May 18: The Groß comfortably beat the 2Qute with better detail, sound stage, clarity in my setup. Listening Experience Most of my music consisted of ripped 16/44.1 flac, with some purchased 24/96 flac and also have ripped DSD64. Groß is my first unit able to play native DSD; previously DSD converted to PCM during playback. Long time favourite, Parce Mihi Domine (Jan Garbarek & Hillard Ensemble, Officium, 16/44.1 flac) had never sounded so good. Jan Garbarek’s saxophone was more natural and transparent and there was clarity in the position of the saxophone relative to the Hillard Ensemble. In numerous 16/44.1 flac, Groß managed to bring out the details and improved the imaging, depth, sound stage. Vocals, particularly female (e.g. KD Lang, Hallelujah, Hymns of the 49th Parallel) had a presence. Even relatively poor classical recordings sounded cleaner. Groß does 16/44.1 flac very well. With higher resolution music, the piano in Gjeilo’s North Country II, Stone Rose, 24/96 flac was natural and as close as I have heard to a real one. When the flugelhorn comes in, imaging was good and realistic. Diana Krall’s My Love Is, from Love Scenes, 24/96 flac, had deep tight bass bass, tighter than I knew, with an excellent voice. Groß managed to improve the bass a bit more in an already optimised dual sub setup. Groß’s DSD capability is outstanding. Eagles’s Hotel California from the same named album was a revelation in native DSD64. Detailed, transparent, nice sound stage. Much better than 16/44.1 and beat 24/96 version. Similarly, Arnesen’s Magnificat 4: Et Misericordia from Magnificat album (DSD64) on 2L label was very good. However, in an unfair comparison, it could not (& not expected to) match the atmosphere and presence of 5.1 PCM with the piano and organ behind the conductor. DSDs came across superbly on the Groß. Could have written a lot more about how good the listening experience was but above was a fair representation. Update 17 Oct: The listening experience improved after 30 to 40 hours of use. Not sure whether this was because I was getting more used to the Groß’s presentation? Female vocals continued to capture my attention with their presence. And still amazed by the details in PCM material. DSDs remain outstanding, problem now is opening wallet to get more DSD material. Update 17 Feb 18: Details, sound stage improved with the upgrades (ISO Regen, Behringer Mods and Amanero firmware). Am surprised how much the Amanero firmware contributed to audio quality. DSD made my wallet lighter but brought more smiles. North Country II in DSD has now replaced the 24/96 PCM version as my favourite piece, with the piano better. Filters The Groß with the AKM AK4497EQ DAC chip came with 6 filters: Super slow roll-off: no echo reproduces natural sound Short delay, slow roll-off: minimal echo reproduces original sound Slow roll-off: minimal echo reproduces original sound Short delay, sharp roll-off: post echo enhances bass sound Sharp roll-off: pre & post echoes make powerful sound. Low dispersion short delay: sound quality optimised Selecting the filter was via the remote and could be changed on the fly for PCM. Filters do not apply to DSD. There were supposed to be subtle differences between filters, but was beyond my old ears to resolve consistently. Update 17 Feb 18: finally found differences! Used short delay, slow roll-off, previously low dispersion short delay, to reduce the echo. Found the short delay, sharp roll-off and sharp roll-off filters had too much echo. Firmware Owning the first USB unit is wonderful and exciting but came with imperfect beta firmware. The firmware was derived from the Gieseler Konverter (same AK4497EQ DAC chip plus pre-pro) and still displayed channel in first line. Also, there were pops when skipping DSD tracks, and occasional pops elsewhere. Will get update once these niggles have been resolved. Update 17 Oct: Firmware has now been updated which removed channel in display, eliminated the annoying pops/clicks. It turned out that the Konverter firmware had the same problem. Both sets of firmware now been overhauled and improved. Update 17 Feb 18: Used Amanero2003_71A firmware optimised for Linux players (SMS-200) . Note that this is different to the Groß firmware referred above. Skip Groß If You … Like the unboxing experience and want to make a YouTube video of it. GIESELER Audio has spent R&D dollars on how it sounds and none on the packaging (but unit was well packed with 3 layers of bubble wrap). Bonus was no one was tempted during shipment! Update 17 Oct: Clay has sourced a double box for shipping Desire international brands with big reputations, leading edge look & feel and extensive reviews. GIESELER Audio have well regarded niche products here on SNA. It may yet gain a wider acceptance as a result of Groß! Conclusion Proud and delighted to own an Australian designed and manufactured DAC which delivered superb audio. In summary, WOW! Update 17 Oct: a theme coming through from the early owners is that the Groß DAC is addictive and we want to listen to it even more. Update 17 Feb 18: With the upgrades, enjoying the Groß DAC more than ever. p/s Clay Gieseler @Gieseler Audio is a fantastic person to deal with and service is second to none.

  8. 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.

  12. Just thought I'd put up a post to draw attention to Burson's new offering. https://www.bursonaudio.com/products/conductor-3/ Looks very nice, although I will admit to being a little confused about the power supply description.
  13. Item: Chord 2Qute DAC Location: Cranbourne North, Melbourne Price: $900 Item Condition: Excellent Reason for selling: Upgrade Payment Method: Cash, Paypal covering fees, Bank transfer Extra Info: Bought it from another SNA member for $1100+postage.

  14. Item: NAD C510 Direct Digital pre-amp Location: Melbourne western suburbs Price: $399 Item Condition: main unit excellent; remote control non functional Reason for selling: upgraded Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: For sale here is a NAD digital preamplifier. It is a second generation of its type, being based on the venerable M51. The C510 gains the most sought after feature requested by M51 owners being a volume control on the front panel. Featuring USB, coax, optical and hdmi inputs this unit is designed to handle any pcm signal up to 24/192 and process it at 35 bit resolution via 844kHz up sampling courtesy of its custom high speed delta sigma chip. I must note that the hdmi is limited to 1080p - it does not like 4K signals being passed through so you will get sound out of the c510 but no picture sent to your monitor of choice. Finally, the remote has unfortunately been damaged and is no longer functional... this obviously kills the couch convenience and removes some access to features. You cannot rename the input sources, change the device to fixed output from variable volume control or adjust the display brightness. Given this inconvenience it is priced accordingly. Have original carton and am happy to ship interstate at buyers’ expense. Photos: Advertisements without photos of the actual item will not be approved.

  21. Item: Cyrus Lyric 5 Location: Bayside, Melbourne. Price: RRP $4900.00 selling for $2800.00 Item Condition: one year old Reason for selling: changed media sources and moving towards analogue Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: great all in one player I bought new one year ago with many facilities like media controller, Bluetooth, which I no longer use so seems a waste to keep it. Currently using only as a source. Strengths of this are the DAC, CD player and NAS control. Weakness, this amp is a class D 80 watt which produces great highs but is a little less in depth when driving inefficient speakers like my Dynaudio.

  24. Item: Wyred 4 Sound DAC-1, with femto clock upgrade Location: Perth (Kardinya) Price: Withdrawn Item Condition: Excellent Reason for selling: NLR Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Great DAC, excellent condition. Femto clock upgraded by the dealer, DeepHZAudio (2015.). It comes with original box and manual. Postage for Aus metro areas $35 via StarTrack couriers with tracking (or organize your own courier for pickup). Payment to bank account or PayPal as friend (no fees). Happy to demo for local buyers. https://wyred4sound.com/sites/default/files/DAC-1-LEMANUALv1.pdf http://www.positive-feedback.com/Issue51/wyred.htm Femto-Grade Master Clock Option* Accuracy and overall quality of the master clock are crucial to obtaining optimum sound quality. The standard clock is no slouch but you now have the option to upgrade to the highest grade component available in its class. Implementation of this femto grade clock optimizes audio quality by lowering phase jitter by over 80% as well as greatly reducing phase noise in the digital circuit. Clocks of this grade are typically found in DAC's retailing for $6K or more. Wyred4Sound DAC 1. This is the final DAC. You need no other. This is the sound of the recordings you love. It too gets out of the way but even more so. Perhaps better internal parts make for its powerful presentation, richness, authority, cleanness and overwhelming detail retrieval. But it’s not 'detail', it’s not 'resolution'. It’s hyper reality of the kind the musician hears before his music is transformed from sweat and blood into product. I don’t understand how Wyred4 Sound managed but they’re holding up the bar mighty high while we enjoy the music. Photos: Advertisements without photos of the actual item will not be approved.
