  1. Some time ago i received a USB spdif converter from @NKMA (thanks!). While trying it out i noticed that the output coax was nice but the optical wasnt the best sounding. I subseqently broke the dust cover for the optical port so a fix was on the cards. The long and short of it: 1. The stock optical transmitter (TX141L) did not match the part number on the PCB. Although similar, the items are not identical (says the datasheets). 2. TX147 installed. No discernible difference now between optical / coax. 3. Transmit power and / or port design might have something to do with it. (The port was different on the stock item to replacement transmitter). If anyone is using one of these, check the transmitter. The model reference is on the back of the plastic housing. If its not a TX147 (and especially if its a TX141L), there might be gains to be had with swapping the optical transmitter. I went with the option of a removable dust plug.

  3. Item: John Kenny SPDIF Mk 3 USB converter Location: Goulburn NSW 2580 Price: $125 inc postage anywhere in Australia Item Condition: Good Working Condition Reason for selling: No Longer Required Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, bank Transfer. Extra Info: Unit has not been used for a while, I will also throw in the attenuator as mentioned in the glowing article. https://www.tnt-audio.com/sorgenti/jk_usb_converter_e.html Pictures:
  4. Item: JK Ciúnas USB-to-SPDIF Converter Location: Perth Price: $300 Item Condition: Very good Reason for selling: Excess to needs Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: This model is the direct upgrade from John Kenny's JKSPDIF Mk3. Unlike the JKSPDIF models, this one isn't based on the M2Tech HiFace. Instead, he re-designed it from the ground up on an Amanero board. VERY GOOD CONDITION. The unit is silver and is in perfect cosmetic condition. Comes with a power cable that connects to a computer via USB. I'll throw in a BNC cable for free. The only negative is that the blue light only stays on for a short while before dimming. This has NO effect on anything, aside from the visual aspect. The Ciúnas uses a LiFePO4 battery to take to remove Power Supply noise from the equation altogether. The Converter uses a trickle charger (included) and can run completely off the grid. It doesn't even use the 5V from the USB connection removing yet another source of noise. It uses Async USB and can handle bit/sample rates up to 24/192. This unit has been a fantastic companion for vintage DACs (Adcom GDA600, Theta Pro Progeny/Basic III, Sonic Frontiers TransDAC, and a Parasound D/AC 1000) as well as DIY units that benefited from using coax over USB (the AMB Labs Gamma2). More details can be found at JK's website here https://sites.google.com/site/jkciunas/converter. The price for one purchased new is €385 + €20 Shipping (~$615 AUD); they also include a 7-14 day wait time just to ship. I'm looking for $300 AUD. These don't come up for sale that often on the forums - for a damn good reason. Please message me and tell me your postage address and I can give you a total price including postage costs. Pictures:
  5. Item: Allo Digione Spdif Transport/Player Location: Grafton NSW Price: $180 postage included (Price new delivered is about $250) Item Condition: Almost brand new Reason for selling: Too much stuff and need the money Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: I have this problem that I have to buy and try things. Allo has the Usb Bridge and the Digione. I went for the latter as I have a dac that does not have usb input. This product is so cheap and got excellent reviews so I bought it to check it out. It has absolutely delivered to all the claims and reviews. I stronly believe that nothing in this price range can beat it. I used for a few weeks and then an Auralic Aries came up for purchase - I could not resist and settled on that. Excellent info and reviews here: https://www.allo.com/sparky/digione-player.html I wanted to keep it for one of my other systems, but I need to declutter and pay school fees. Pictures: Please let me know if you want, but it looks like the one on the website I linked.

  11. I'm looking to run a toslink cable from my Macbook pro to my Rega DAC. I'm listening to 16Bit 44.1KHz ALAC files, ripped from my CD collection. I don't have any higher resolution stuff, and I'm not necessarily interested in obtaining it, as I've already amassed a reasonable amount of music at 16/41.1. Has anyone had experience listening different optical cables, and, can you recommend a good brand that would suit the setup. I'm looking at up to a $100 spend. I'm not after opinions on optical vs coax vs usb etc, as I intend to use optical for the time being. Thanks, Peter.
  12. Hi folks, After just reading that the local price for the Wyred 4 sound remedy reclocker has gone up from $430 to $550 I'm thinking there might be plenty of other fish in the sea that do the same thing. It would be appreciated if anyone can suggest similar devices and their experience, comparison or opinion of them. I can start with my own experience. I own an old Audio Alchemy DTI Pro32 reclocker and I recently connected the coax from my pc to this and then to a nad m51. It was an obvious and decent improvement in sound quality. I'm thinking another reclocker like the remedy or Audio gd would be useful. The Audio gd has usb input as well as spdif where as the W4S only has spdif. Thanks in advance, L11
  13. 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.
  14. Item: Audiophilleo 1 + PurePower Location: Melbourne Price: $900 Item Condition: Excellent Reason for selling: Going in a different direction - raising funds Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, EFT Extra Info: Recently factory serviced. Turned out to be a broken USB connector on the PurePower. The entire PP unit was replaced under warranty - it has only two hours use. Includes all factory supplied cables, including Wireworld Ultraviolet USB. 12V trigger power supply. IR receiver. BNC adapter set. Hardshell case for AP1. Pictures: See below for pictures. These don't seem to come up second hand very often. I'm surprised it hasn't sold. It is clearly better than using the USB input on my Metrum Octave MkII. I'm selling because I'm going in a different direction. All is in perfect working order. The clear coat on the AP has a few fine marks when examined carefully as would be expected after two years of use. As mentioned above, the PurePower is virtually new. Details: http://www.audiophil...iophilleo1.aspx http://www.audiophil.../purepower.aspx Listing price is only $150 more than a recently sold AP2 + PP combo. The AP1 has some nice features over the AP2. Aside from the slick display, there is digital volume, IR remote control, polarity inversion, bit perfect testing and a few other extras. Have a look at the links above. This one also comes with a hardshell case for the AP1 and accessories. Feel free to PM with questions.
  15. Item: SOLD: Musical Fidelity V-Link 192 USB TO SPDIF Converter Location: Glen Waverley or Richmond, Victoria Price: AUD$180 (RRP: USD$400) Item Condition: Like New Reason for selling: Upgraded to Audiophilleo 2. Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Also has AES/EBU out. Very good transport for the price I am selling at. The RRP will tell you the league it was playing at. A massive improvement over the old cheap sub-$100 V-Link (96). I need to recoup funds so I am putting it for like 60-70% off retail even though unit has been used for slightly over a month and is in like-new condition. I got it at a good price and I am selling at an even better price. Unbeatable value. Priced for a very quick sale. Pictures: Coming soon.

  18. After suffering a shortage of optical inputs to my miniDSP and being worried the constant plugging and unplugging of optical cables may cause wear and tear on the sockets, I got a basic passive 4 way optical switch from Jaycar: http://www.jaycar.com.au/productView.asp?ID=AC1597 so far it works.. the circular splayed out "inputs" are a bit awkward for arranging it, but I guess required for how a passive optical switch works? Haven’t done much serious listening, or any measurements, but sound seems unaffected. I like this K.I.S.S. passive approach. Time will tell how sturdy it is.
  19. Item: SOtM dx-USB HD USB to SPDIF Converter Location: Canberra Price: $325 + Postage (Reasonable offers considered) Item Condition: 9/10 (only because it's second hand, it's visually and operationally perfect) Reason for selling: Upgrading to Bel Canto REFLink Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, Bank Transfer Extra Info: The SOtM dx-USB HD is a high quality 24/192 capable async USB to SPDIF converter, allowing one to connect a non-usb capable DAC to a computer, or providing an upgrade on the USB input of a USB capable DAC (which is how I used it). I have all the original packaging, software, etc., and the unit is in immaculate condition. I am only selling it because I am upgrading to Bel Canto's top of the line USB to SPIDF converter. The SOtM retails for $425AU, so at my asking price of $325 it is $100 off the retail price for a "as-new" unit. The SOtM can be upgraded with an additional external battery power supply (which retails for about $400), but this is not included. It works well with Windows, Mac, and Linux. Specs can be found here: http://sotm-audio.co...s/dx-usb_hd.php Pictures: SOtM Front by 0lhh0, on Flickr SOtM Back by 0lhh0, on Flickr
