  5. Item: Audiolab M-DAC (black) Location: Melbourne (pickup in Seddon or shipping at buyer's cost) Price: $650 Item Condition: Very good, even the original screen protector is still there. Reason for selling: Bought it on a whim and don't really use it. Payment Method: Cash on pickup / Bank Transfer if posted Extra Info: I purchased it a couple of months ago from from the original owner on here, who purchased a few years ago from Caxton Audio in Melbourne. Includes all original power supply, remote, packaging etc. Fantastic DAC/headamp - really sounds incredible..... Note, this DAC is with the latest firmware A.10 installed, which was unofficially provided by the designer of this DAC - John West. This firmware is much better than the original shipping version since it has more functions and even better sound quality. Please refer to the MDAC wiki (http://mdac.referata.com/wiki/Main_Page)for details of all the different firmwares. And if really required, I can update the firmware to whatever version you like although I can't think about any reason doing that . Detail product info: http://www.audiolab.co.uk/product-detail.php?pid=13 Review in whathifi: http://www.whathifi....ab/m-dac/review And tons of good reviews in all audio forums, such as this (unbelievable, part 110000 for a thread!) : MDAC First Listen (part 00110000)

  7. Hi, I am looking to buy a second hand or demo Audiolab M-Dac. Preference is for a black model. I am in Perth so local would be good but am prepared to pay for freight if the price is right. Price zone is $500 to $1000. Cheers
  8. Hi Guys, thought some of you would be interested in this news. This has been taken directly from a MDAC wiki by John Westlake who will be trying to get this upgrade into production. Upgrades as follows: Upgrading M-DACs would then consist of a relatively simple entire Mainboard swap for a new one. Something that takes little time and could be even carried out by 3rd parties or indeed on a DIY basis. While this would obviously necessitate time for development and production, at the end of the day this would enable much higher throughput and lots more upgraded M-DACs finding their ways to many more people, enriching lives of music lovers around the world - unlike the current scheme which is confined to EU customers only. Being able to have a brand new Mainboard would allow not just streamlining of existing circuits upgrade - it would be a perfect chance to push the envelope even further with a pair of ES9018 in Dual Mono instead of just a single one in stereo for the ultimate performance, it would enable us to upgrade the USB chip to a High Speed USB 2.0 enabling 32 bit resolution at up to 768kHz as well as 64Fs and 128Fs DSD support. The PCBs would be built in EU and fully tested & qualified by John to guarantee consistency. Proposed features Dual ES9018 Sabre32 DAC ICs HS USB Audio Class 2 with up to 32bit/768kHz and DSD support Level 2+ upgrade applied from factory 'Toy' & 'Fusion' Bulk Foil resistors supported on PCB Passive AV bypass RCA inputs / OR:- Option for 4Way Female XLR balanced headphone connection:- 1 left +, 2 left -, 3 right +, 4 right -, (Shell Ground) No more Left Channel Crackling bug Increased tolerance to nasty sources (ATV, AEX, Sonos) Super exciting for those of us with MDAC's. Also i hear the transport will be the same size as the MDAC and I really hope will support DSD. Rob
  9. Hi Guys, Does anyone know if the volume control on the Audiolab M-DAC is after the digital stage or if it is done in the digital domain? Trying to work out if the bits are chopped at low levels? It sounds good as a pre-amp, but alot of people say its superior bypassing volume control. Thanks alot Rob
