  1. 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...

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).

  2. Item: Qualia Physic PSU 12v 6.6A Location: Brunswick VIC Price: 200 or offer Item Condition: as new Reason for selling: never used it and have no use for it Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Purchased this a couple of years ago when I was planning to build a music server.

I cannot find that much info about it, but it looks really pretty and the build quality seems good. I did find a comment on another forum about someone having good results using one of these as the PSU for a Mytek Brooklyn. https://pinkfishmedia.net/forum/threads/mytek-brooklyn-firmware-update.201735/page-3 Have the box and packing so very easy to post this one. 12v/6.6A, plug type DC 5.5mm/2.5mm Photos: Advertisements without photos of the actual item will not be approved.

  6. Hello, I have a TS Lim Diva M7 preamp. There are three tubes in the signal chain and a separate non-tube power supply. I wanted to find an appropriate separate tube power supply. Does anyone have any suggestions? The photo of the psu that is usually recommended is attached. However, it is very difficult to find one and I don't know their cost.. I have borrowed another preamp with a built-in power supply. It sounds very good - nice mid-range that seems to extend more. Overall, the sound has more integrity and smoother. It only has a rectifier tube plus two tubes in the signal chain. My Diva has three tubes in the signal chain. Can anyone tell me the main difference ('all other things been equal') that I should expect to hear between two and three tubes preamps? Please don't answer, "the difference is 'one' tube" Thx so much for any help you can offer. Bob
  7. Hello, With much thought about my preamp and its power supply, I've decided to have a 'Tube PSU' made for my preamp. I know nothing about building a PSU. I just want a great PSU. Can anyone recommend a reputable technician who can make me a PSU? I live in Melbourne - eastern suburbs - but I don't mind if the psu builder is further away or even interstate. I just want a great tube power supply for my TS Lim Diva M7 Preamp. My Diva preamp has been modified/upgraded caps. The tube PSU that usually pairs with the Diva preamp is pictured below. But I can't find one. The PSU I currently use is the black box below. Thank you for any suggestions. Bob @aussievintage
  8. Item: Swagman Linear PSU for Rega Turntables - Special Edition Location: Brisbane QLD Price: $300 Item Condition: Used but presents as new Reason for selling: No longer required (selling my Rega RP8) Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal Extra Info: This is the 'Special Edition' version, which are made only on special request Purchased Nov 2016. Used this on a Rega RP6 and later a RP8. For those that don't know this device replaces the cheap and nasty Rega 'wall-wart' power pack that plugs into the Rega Speed changer PSU box. This didn't come with a 'kettle cord' but can include one. Here's the blurb from the manufacturer: The low noise toroidal transformer increases the output current capability. EMI filter takes place as a result of suppressing RFI noise in the system subjected to electromagnetic interferences. It's a perfect upgrade Rega Turntable TT PSU which offer significantly improvement in sound quality. The power supply is equipped with a high quality cable made of OFC copper insulated wires. Lockable Circular socket and plug is selected for guarantee consistent performance. Wrapping around by the flexible nylon mesh for a neat and tidy finish. The Signature Edition regards all the parts will be upgraded in order to maximize the performance toward more AUDIOPHILE.

  10. http://www.hd-plex.com/fanless-ATX-power-supply This seems interesting and affordable. Not sure how much PC you can connect to it. And their fan-less chassis aren't bad either. Maybe I'll give it a try for my final build
  11. Item: Wyred4Sound Remedy Reclocker + Gieseler Linear Power SupplyLocation: Cleveland, QLD (4163)Price: $475 (Shipping +$15, PayPal +3%)Item Condition: Used, very good conditionReason for selling: No longer required.Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal (+3%) , Bank TransferExtra Info: Listing is for a Wyred4Sound Remedy Reclocker (purchased 20-Oct-2015) and a Gieseler Linear PSU (purchased 31-Dec-2015), original Australian printed invoices are included for both items. Used between a Sonos Connect and a Devialet 120 to great effect, reduced jitter was immediately noticable and converted the Connect into a high-performance device. Although the reviews for the Reclocker have generally been very positive, I've found that the performance jump added when using the Gieseler Linear PSU to the Reclocker took its performance into a whole new realm (a bigger jump than the reclocker itself out of the box!) , and once heard with it, couldn't recommend listening without it. I've found the performance jump gained with this combo scales well when using even better sources/dac, not just entry/mid level etc. Current RRP $870+ Review: http://www.digitalaudioreview.net/2014/08/wyred4sound-remedy-spdif-reclocker-review/ Website: https://wyred4sound.com/products/digital-converters/remedy-reclocker Reclocker Features (from website): Utilizes an incredible Femto-grade clock Superior jitter reduction Toslink and Coaxial digital inputs Toslink, Coaxial, BNC digital outputs 96kHz output sampling frequency* Digital inputs support up to 24/192kHz 9VDC power supply included 5 year warranty Gieseler Linear PSU: Description This linear low noise DC power supply is designed to improve the performance of digital audio accessory devices that are normally powered by small SMPS plug-packs. All the internal components are of high quality & are selected for reliability & sound quality where applicable. Capacitors are Nichicon Fine Gold, Panasonic or Elna Silmic II’s. It is powered by external IE core transformers. These have a distinct advantage over the usual Toroidal type as they have better isolation between the windings & lower bandwidth means less HF noise coming in via the mains. Also being external there is less radiated hum entering the power supply circuitry. Noise, hum & ripple levels are very low due to the common mode choke pre filtering & low noise Linear Technology high performance regulators. Also what helps to reduce noise as well is the use of Schottky diodes & a transformer LC snubber. The DC output cable/connection is an area that is often neglected; so I have gone to extra lengths here to get it right. The DC output on the supply uses a Neutrik 6 Amp XLR gold pin socket. The supplied DC cable uses a matching Neutrik gold pin plug hand soldered to a 10A lead with moulded DC barrel connector for ruggedness. Specifications Noise level is approximately 20 uV to 40 uV d. Ripple & hum rejection is approximately 100 dB. Short circuit & thermal protection. Website: http://gieseler.com.au/ProductsPage/index.html Pictures:
  12. ello, Up for sale are 3 items: Uptone USB regen - $110 sold Curious USB link (for USB regen) - $75 sold Longdog Audio 12 amp psu for PC - $600 (a little known brand over here in Aus but PSU this was made by the same guy that built my Longdoc dac - check out the reviews that got here to get an idea of his talents) sold In combination, these provide a nice upgrade for any budding PC audio enthusiast at a very realistic price point. Everything has original boxes and was all purchased brand new by me. Only ever been in my system and come from a loving, smoke, children and pet free home. I'm only selling because I've moved higher up the food chain at a considerable cost. If you want the lot we can talk about a lower price, otherwise, these are all priced very fairly. These prices don't include shipping - you can cover that anyway you like. Jeez - that must be a record for me lol!
  13. Hi there, does anyone know where I could buy (or have made) a PSU for a DSPeaker AntiMode 8033? It is a 9V AC/ 12V DC. The original one hums a bit. Oh I am in Sydney. Thanks!
  14. DAC-lovers, anyone here interested in the forthcoming Schiit Yggdrasil? Did anyone experience it at the recent CanJam? Their 'bitperfect' filter design and attention to power supply have my attention. http://www.digitalaudioreview.net/2014/10/schiit-exhibit-fulla-usb-and-yggdrasil-dacs-at-canjam-14/
  15. I recently changed from network streaming to a direct USB connection between my SSD library and streamer (Auralic Aires). Looking for ideas on how to improve that connection. Only limitation is that I need to use the streamer's USB input. There are lots of threads about optimising USB to DAC (split cables, linear PSU etc.) and internal hard drives for computers (SATA filters etc.) but I am asking specifically about connecting an external SSD library. Any ideas welcome. Hoping to hear from someone that has tried to do same. Cheers JD
  16. Hi, I have been growing into computer audio for the past year and I am thinking about building my final build. Looking at my parts list and doing some research I did come across quit a few positive reactions about using linear power supply's. I would prefer to have the possibility to demo some of these computer parts before buying them. I am a bit skeptical since I own a specialized USB card who doesn't seem to make a difference, tested an USB cable that doesn't seem to make a difference compared to a stock one, and had a breve experience with an Audiophilleo2 that didn't seem to make a difference either. If you have some hardware related to computer audio that you are willing to share/demo/borrow with me that would be highly appreciated.
  17. After going through a process of software comparison and tweaks, I have come to the opinion that you can get all "Audiophile accepted" software players to output the same results. And there is only so much you need to tweak inside software to get to that result, where you can easily can get lost in all the tweaker options that are available. When it comes to hardware, there are almost as many options for upgrades but it's a lot more expensive to try them all out compared to tweaking your software. What I want to do with starting this thread is to find out which ones have been confirmed to work within which setup and how this has been tested. Ideally it would be great to organize some gathering (Audio LAN party) where different type of hardware can be tested or tried. I do have a PPA USB card where I cannot find a difference in SQ. Tested between 2 identical PC using the same software setup. I also had a short change to try an Audio Audiophilleo in a 1 PC setup. I didn't find a difference in SQ on this occasion either. I am using an Oppo 105 as a DAC and used CD quality files for playback. Where I am interested in at this time is to find out the influence of the power supply and the difference between a high and low power system. Please let us try to avoid any heated discussion about cables. If you want to have a debate about cables I am sure there other threads where you can do this. People can make up their own mind.
  18. Anyone have a Teddy Pardo PSU for a SBT they would like to part with? Don't like my chances but thought I would ask the question before buying direct.
