  1. Item: Chord Mojo DAC Location: Melbourne Price: $400 Item Condition: Very good Reason for selling: Too many DACs Payment Method: Pickup - Cash preferred Extra Info: The Mojo needs no introduction.

Photos: Advertisements without photos of the actual item will not be approved.
  2. Hi there everyone. I'm in the market for an integrated amp and turntable, anyone know of any hifi stores doing great Black Friday deals?
  3. Entry level Pro-ject TT. I'm grabbing one for an Xmas pressie and why not? 50% off at the checkout. $699 RRP take half of that way and I think it's free shipping as well. SAVE 50% on Walnut with coupon BF-DEBUT at checkout! Ends 2nd Dec! So the link is here>>> click So anybody else who finds an audio bargain over the next few days, feel free to post a link. I'll get this moderated so we don't fall into a slanging match about how good or bad the items/deals are. It's just a heads up for what's out there nothing else. This might be the only deal posted...who knows.
  4. Item: Naim DAC-V1 - DSD DAC, Class A Head Amp, Preamp Location: Sydney Inner West Price: $1,150 plus postage Item Condition: 9.5/10 Reason for selling: no longer needed Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: This is a spectacular, versatile DAC offer from Naim which is a current model retailing for $3,150, although Melbourne HI-FI has an EX display model now for $2,400 https://www.stereophonic.com.au/naim-dac-v1-digital-to-analogue-converter/ https://www.melbournehifi.com.au/collections/dac/products/naim-audio-dac-v1-ex-display It provides: - DSD DAC via USB - 24/192 via optical, BNC and coax (has 5 inputs) - Class A Headphone Amplifier - It has been my reference amp to drive my Focal Utopias, plenty of power, clean and engaging sound (typical Naim signature) - Fully analogue, digitally controlled pre-amplifier with RCA and Naim proprietary outputs - Linear power supply - Remote control The unit was purchased from Stereonet about 5 months ago. I initially purchase it for use as headphone amplifier, but it was so good that I sold my other DAC and preamplifier and made this the corner stone of my system. I am now downgrading pretty much all my system to collect some cash which is needed for unexpected circumstances not related to hi-fi. This DAC received 5 stars of What hifi and "best buy" on The Ear. These are some reviews: https://www.whathifi.com/naim/dac-v1/review https://www.audiostream.com/content/naim-dac-v1-review-page-2 https://theaudiophileman.com/naim-v1-dac/ http://www.the-ear.net/review-hardware/naim-dac-v1-digital-analogue-converter https://www.hifiplus.com/articles/naim-dac-v1-dac-nap100-amplifier/ The unit presents as new, no marks or scratches. I dont have the original box but given the compact size it can be packed very safely and easily in a different box (I can use the one it was posted to me in) This is the original AD from Stereonet. (Note that there are no marks what so ever on it, as it would appear from the photo in the old AD. I will add some extra photos tomorrow.)
  5. Item: Xiang Sheng DAC Location: Central Coast, NSW Price: 225.00 Item Condition: As New Reason for selling: Wrong Faceplate Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Purchased from China HiFi mid Jan '19. Arrived with silver rather than black faceplate. Rather than return the item, as I was quite happy with the piece other than the faceplate, I negotiated a very favorable price with Mr. Lee for a unit with AK 4497 chips. DSD x 2 over DOP. Dual 4495 seq chips, upgraded transformer and GE tube. Balanced and unbalanced outputs. Cost was 296.00 USD delivered. For an extra 50.00 will include Isotek power cable shown in pics. I will supply link to DSD driver upon purchase. I ran only 24/384 which did not require driver download. I will cover paypal fees and up to 25.00 shipping. Thanks Pictures:
  6. Hi Folks, Just a quick note, just went for a walk with my phone playing thought my Chord MOJO. I have just noticed the signal light has illuminated in white. This indicates the DAC is receiving a 1 bit DSD signal. Had a quick google and there is something about Spotify trialing hi res or something? Anyway, if you are interested. P.S. listening to Moog - I Feel You Now.
  7. Item: PS Audio Nuwave DSD DAC Location: Bunyip VIC, Southeast Melbourne Price: $1400 + Shipping. Will deliver free anywhere in Melbourne if desired. Item Condition: Used, excellent, some minor/negligible hairline marking on the high gloss top when seen under strong light. Reason for selling: No longer required Payment Method: Cash - Paypal (add 3%) - Bank Transfer Extra Info: I bought this in March this year brand new. This DAC is the finest I have ever owned and I'm sorry to part with it. It was meant to be my endgame DAC, so its a regretful sale to a good home. The Nuwave DSD is the same DAC stage used in the PS Audio Stellar. It handles all PCM files, as well as DSD 64 and 128. I photographed the unit in natural light to show up as much of the surface as I could. As you can see, the very minor surface marks on the high gloss top are virtually invisible. I'm also throwing in the Cambridge Audio interconnects in the photo. I went deaf in one ear from an inner ear virus a few months ago, and have neither a need nor desire for my hi fi gear any longer. After months of deliberation, I've decided to sell it all, so please have a look at my other listings in case there is anything else you might like. You are welcome to come and pick it up from Bunyip, about 20 minutes east of Pakenham. I am happy to deliver it anywhere in Melbourne for free if you prefer. Alternatively, shipping can be arranged at the buyer's expense. https://www.psaudio.com/nuwave-dsd/ https://www.stereophile.com/content/ps-audio-nuwave-dsd-da-processor Pictures:

  9. Item: Klein DAC II Location: Sydney Price: $670 posted Condition: 10/10 Reason for selling: NLR Payment method: Cash, COD, PayPal Extra info: In mint condition, this is version II of the best small Aussie DAC ever made. The main points of difference with respect to the previous version are: - New DAC chip which can read DSD - Display - Remote Control - More filters available I have box, manual and power supply.

  12. Item: Topping D10 DAC Location: Princes Hill Price: $90 + postage ONO Item Condition: Excellent Reason for selling: I just wanted to see what it was like. Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: I bought this DAC from Topping via Alibaba about two weeks ago just to try out upsampling PCM to DSD using roon. The DAC, for the price, is amazing - lots of detail, good bass control and quite a nice top end. The build quality is also very good. Given the price I was extremely impressed. The DAC uses the power from the USB input so no external power supply is required. I was driving it using a Raspberry Pi and it worked well. The DAC comes in its original packing and is in excellent condition. It was only used for about four hours. There isn't much information available on the web but here is a link to the manufacturers website: http://www.tpdz.net/en/products/d10/index.htm Now my experiment is over it's time to move it on.

  13. Hi, Sorry if this is covered somewhere but I couldn't find a thread. Recently down loaded some .DSF files onto the Onkyo player onto my iPhone. Playing these files through a Chord Mojo lights up the DSD light so assume it working correctly. So today in the car though I would try feeding it into the car's sound system (thought the UBS) and the files played, sounded good but this is a good recording anyway. Given the car has DAB radio is it likely that these files played as 'proper' DSD though the car? Has anyone else tried this?
  14. Item: Mytek Brooklyn DAC (Silver) Location: Melbourne (Currently on loan to a SNA member) Price: $1850 Item Condition: Very Good Reason for selling: No longer required Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: The unit is currently on loan to an SNA member in Melbourne so my preference is for pick. I am the second owner of this well-regarded DAC which will process PCM, DSD and MQA. I have used it on and off for around 18 months. I had a brief try of DSD which sounds nice but to be honest, I can't be bothered with setting up the computer and running HQ player. I would rather just use my streamer. I also have a couple of SACD players with good internal DAC's so I really don't need the Brooklyn as well. The Brooklyn will also function as a phono, preamp and headphone amp (I have never tried using the phono or headphone section) The unit comes with its box, original USB cable and Apple Remote. The DAC software is updatable by the users and is a simple process. I have stolen a couple of images from a previous Brooklyn that was sold on SNA (I am not currently in possession of the DAC) but I should be able to get some images in a couple of days of the actual unit. http://www.digitalaudioreview.net/2016/07/the-host-with-the-most-mytek-digitals-brooklyn/ https://mytekdigital.com/hifi/products/brooklyn/ Pictures:
  15. Item: Resonessence Concero HD and Aqvox power supply Location: Sydney Price: $800 Item Condition: Very Good Reason for selling: Upgraded Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal Extra Info: Approximately 2 yo model. Plays dsd and 192/24 files. The power supply is from Germany and gives a slight lift to performance, as well as allowing you to connect usb and spdif coax at the same time (e.g. both a pc/streamer and cd player). You can switch between the two with the included Apple remote. Also works a usb/spdif converter that darko rates alongside the Audaphileo. Slight scratch on the face (see picture). Will post to anywhere in Australia. Pictures:
  16. Item: Teac UD-501 Dac / Headphone Amp Location: Southern Suburbs of Perth Price: $650. Item Condition: 9.5/10 - as new. Reason for selling: need funds to try something different. Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, or Paypal with purchaser to cover associated costs. I do have the original packaging so can also post at purchasers cost if required. Extra Info: plenty of reviews out there to let you know how good this Dac is for the money - links to a couple follow. This is a great unit and i will probably regret selling it, but thats the way it goes! This is a 240v version, originally imported from Italy at a cost of $599 euros - no need for a step down converter as a result. Please PM me if you have any questions at all. Thanks for looking, Scott http://www.theabsolutesound.com/articles/teac-ud-501-digital-converter/?page=3 http://www.dagogo.com/teac-ud-501-usb-da-converter-review/2 Prefer local sale, but have all original packaging if shipping is requested - costs for the purchaser.

  18. Item: Matrix X Sabre - BLACK Location: Sydney Price: 700 Item Condition: Mint condition Reason for selling: No longer used Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: http://www.matrix-digi.com/en/products/49/index.html#page1
  19. Item: TEAC UD-501 Dual Monoraul DSD-DAC with Headphone Amp Location: Melbourne Price: $600 $550 + Post Item Condition: Excellent Reason for selling: Doesn't get used Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Bought recently from SNA. I'm the 2nd owner. This DAC hits way above the price point. Excellent resolution and detail with a plethora of inputs. Can be compared to a Swiss Knife considering all the options included. I use my ARCAM CD-92T CD player (With DCS Ring-DAC) and enjoy it more than this. (Probably one of those very few people who listen to CDs more than computer audio) . Its heavy and build like a tank with brushed Aluminium case. Unfortunately there's no box or manual since this is the same way I received it when I bought it, but will pack properly and ship if required. The DAC is in mint condition with zero cosmetic damages. Supports DSD 2.8/5.6MHz playback and PCM 32bit/384kHz playback (via USB) Supports PCM 24bit/192kHz playback (Coaxial) and up to 24bit/96kHz playback (Optical) Two BurrBrown PCM1795 D/A Converters and Four MUSES8920 operational amplifiers 1 USB Audio Input, 2 Optical Inputs, 2 Coaxial Inputs and 1 Stereo RCA/XLR Outputs Full-metal jacket. Gorgeous aluminum panels for front top and sides. Small A4 footprint.

  20. Worth the effort? Not sure if my DAC can handle DSD so would require some messing about.
  21. I just won this on Grays last night... http://www.whathifi.com/sony/uda-1/review Has anyone had a chance to play with one? Was the experience good or bad? Thanks in advance
  22. there are lots of OS Websites offering high-res audio downloads ('DSD', FLAC etc) but there are "restrictions" preventing us from purchasing/downloading them from here (downunder Aust!) has anyone found any 'local' distributors or can recommend a workaround to this problem? why is our access to content so heavily restricted?
  23. FYI it's now possible to natively play back DSD files from Logitechmediaserver using a Squeezebox Touch or Wandboard. To enable this you need to have a DSD capable DAC and encapsulate the DSD stream in a FLAC file. LMS believes it's putting out 176.4 PCM, but in fact it's passing through the untouched DSD stream - as will be confirmed by your DAC. Encapsulating the DSD files in FLAC format has the added advantage of being able to add album metadata to the files (something the DSD format does not natively support). To encapsulate your DSD files in a FLAC wrapper you need to use a Foobar2000 plugin to "convert" the DSD files to FLAC. Thereafter you can tag them like you would any FLAC file, add them to your LMS library and play them just as you would any other audio track (you will not get any sound if trying to play back through a non DSD capable DAC). Instructions (works under Linux as well): 1. download the "foo_input_packeddsd.dll" file and place it in the Foobar Component folder 2. Install the FLAC plugin 3. After restarting Foobar you should see "SACD" under "File->preferences ->Tools" within Foobar Set up as follows: Restart Foobar, open the folder containing your DSD files or drag the files into Foobar, edit tags if you wish, right click, select "Convert" and choose FLAC. Try playing the resultant files through USB to your DSD capable DAC, check to make sure it is playing DSD not PCM. If you're not getting DSD playback, recheck your Foobar config.
  24. With the computer becoming more common as a digital source, and all the USB DAC's that pop up everywhere, the wait is for the first wave of multichannel DAC's. HDMI is now the only option for multichannel HD audio, at this point, except for some professional sound cards, unless you like to use your PC as an analog source. I came across a couple of reads and possibilities which really uses the strength of the PC to it's benefit. http://www.whatsbestforum.com/showthread.php?13352-The-***Unofficial***-Multichannel-DAC-Thread Home Theatre http://www.acousticfrontiers.com/201366how-to-replace-your-home-theater-pre-pro-with-a-htpc/ Stereo http://www.computera...usb-dac-review/
  25. http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/301397942069?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1423.l2649 I was wondering what people can tell me about this little device. The specs sound good and I like that it has what it looks like an i2s HDMI output. I am interested to know if it would be possible to use an USB DAC for HD movies with JRiver. High Res DSD doesn't seem to be that different except for the format.
