    Multichannel DAC

    This might just be a wild goose chase but there are many 2 channel DAC options but hardly any 8 channel DAC options. I personally would love to see an 8 channel external DAC that can drive a power amp directly so that I can finally get rid of the horrible quality Pre Amps that are AV Pre Processors. By now we are used to using computers for music playback via external DAC, but for movie playback we still need to use an AVR or Pre-Pro or we have to use a Pro Audio DA Converter which comes with a lot of options not needed for the average consumer. Anyone else with me?????

  5. Item: Tannoy Arena 5.1 System Location: Mascot, Sydney Price: $1500 Item Condition: Excellent Reason for selling: Relocating and some gear has to be sold Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only Extra Info: Mint condition system still in use until sold and I move again.... You will struggle to find a system as flexible for theatre or HiFi that is this small in footprint offering this level of sound quality and beautiful design. The dual concentric driver with centre super tweeter sounds amazing and I have tried many traditional boxed speakers that can't compete with point source driver layout. They simply defy logic considering their size and how loud and clear they sound! The front mains come with original stands which were a $700 extra, the rears are actually 2 more of the larger centre speaker and come with the optional adjustable wallmount and table stands. All speakers have the grills. You can also reverse the config around and put the slimline speakers on stands as your rear speakers and use the 3 matched dual speakers across the front if you have one of the lowline cabinets etc. Originally spent over $3500 for this setup so the price is good. The system is currently setup as my home theatre/living room HiFi rig and can be demonstrated for serious buyers in Sydney. Pictures:

Need money for house repayments. Payment Methods: Paypal (add 3%), Cash - Pickup, Bank Transfer. Extra info: I have not opened it since I bought this direct from Emotiva. Between the time I bought it up to the time it arrived, I had an enforced change in jobs and I am tight on funds. Make no mistake, this is my dream AV PREAMP/PROCESSOR with an unequaled dirac le auto tune optimizer for it's price range and I will buy this again once I am not so tight financially. Keep in mind this unit is without any amplification (which will usually aid in sound quality) and will require you to have a power amp to pair it with. If you want I can also upload a picture of the shipping box. It's still sealed inside.

  11. Item: Yamaha CX-A5000 AV Processor Location: Shop 7 19 Victoria Avenue Castle Hill NSW 2154 Price: $2200 Item Condition: excellent Payment Method: all Extra Info: With box, manual, remote, mic and 15 months left on warranty. Pictures: Support for HDMI 2.0 Specification This model will support HDMI 2.0 connectivity*. It will support 4K Ultra HD 50 Hz/60 Hz signal pass-through to output motion-smooth high definition videos. *Firmware update to support this feature has been available since 2014 Jun. State-of-the-art Technologies Combine for Studio-grade Preamp Quality Ensuring the Ultimate Sound ExperienceThe CX-A5000 utilizes the most sophisticated engineering and technology, as well as traditional craftsmanship, for pure sound reproduction. Making full use of CINEMA DSP HD3, the pinnacle of three-dimensional sound field reproduction, it realizes detailed, accurate sound imaging. Used with the MX-A5000 11.2-channel power amplifier, it achieves overwhelming silence and sound filled with dynamic feeling. It also offers advanced video processing technology, versatile network capability with a wide range of content access and app control, along with flexible system configuration that benefits from advanced HDMI® zone switching. High Density Presence and Richly Detailed Sound Ensured by High Sound Quality Parts and DesignIn the CX-A5000, all channels use ultra high performance ESS Technology ES9016 SABRE32™ Ultra DACs , which provide 192 kHz/32-bit compatible high SN ratio and dynamic range, ensuring that it can faithfully reproduce audio signals from Blu-ray Disc™ and other players and high quality signals from high resolution sound sources input through networks. Matched to the design of the DAC circuit, which achieves stable ground potential (DAC on Pure Ground), they ensure high precision D/A conversion. The OP amp is a high grade type adopted only by flagship models for maximum signal purity. It realizes even more detailed sound by adopting a three-layer circuit board design that completely separates the digital, analog video and analog audio circuit boards, which have different noise levels and frequency bands, and by a design that provides the shortest possible circuit route. Further, by separating the power supplies to the analog circuit boards, it eliminates high frequency noise interference from the digital circuits. The shielded power supply restricts noise radiation and the large power transformer minimizes vibration. Ultra-high Performance DACs for Superior Sound QualityUltra-high performance, 192 kHz/32-bit, ESS Technology ES9016 SABRE32™ Ultra DACs produce an unsurpassed sound stage with up to 124 dB dynamic range, super low distortion and noise level. These top-end quality DACs are even used for front and rear presence speakers. This AV receiver’s sound reproduction is for the most discriminating of listeners. Noise Resistant, Highly Reliable Balanced ConnectionElectrical noise may be generated due to connection with other AV components and even from the connection between the preamplifier and power amplifier, as well as from other sources of external noise. To ensure that the CX-A5000 and MX-A5000 are not affected by this distortion, they use balanced connections that are highly noise resistant—the same type generally used in pro audio equipment. Even the RCA unbalanced connection uses a ground sensing transmission method that achieves simple balanced transmission. And in cases such as that where each channel with the XLR is used selectively, the impact of noise flowing between the preamp and the chassis of the power amp is removed, minimizing sound quality deterioration due to the connection. The CX-A5000 also allows balanced audio input connection to high grade source components such as CD players. Specially Designed High Rigidity Chassis Minimizes the Effects of Vibration for Greater Sound PurityAs part of the no-compromise design policy, Yamaha created an advanced chassis with strong rigidity. Chassis stiffness is enhanced by an H-shaped cross frame that boosts mechanical strength by adopting aluminum side panels that increase the stiffness of the housing and by a three-ply structure with independent top cover and side panels. Any external vibration from the rack or other sources is damped by heavy insulators. The A.R.T. (Anti-Resonance Technology) Wedge in the center of the bottom cover acts as an additional vibration countermeasure and firmly supports the internal circuits and delicate parts. In addition, this model has a double bottom chassis and rigid bottom frame to further enhance chassis rigidity and reduce the transmission of vibration produced by the large power supply and other internal components. CINEMA DSP HD3 Expands the Sound Field Vertically for More Thrilling and Realistic Surround SoundCINEMA DSP HD3 literally takes the surround sound experience to new heights. By using four CINEMA DSP engines with advanced 3D processing and four presence channels in an 11-channel configuration, it gives the sound an enhanced vertical dimension. You are enveloped in wide, high and dense sound fields that deliver excitingly realistic surround sound. In addition, a rear Virtual Presence Speaker has been added to the usual front Virtual Presence Speaker, so you can enjoy CINEMA DSP HD3 programs using a 9-channel system (without rear presence speakers) with almost the same sensational sound as an 11-channel system. 33 DSP Programs, Including 10 Introduced in the Flagship Z11 ReceiverThe broad array of surround sound programs, including 10 featured in the flagship Z11 receiver, features six “Movie†choices, including “Spectacle†for movies with strong visual and audio impact, “Sci-Fi†for SFX movies, “Adventure†to emphasize the sound of action movies and “Drama.†Seven “Entertainment†programs match the audio characteristics of sources such as sports, music videos and action and role-playing games. Compatibility with the Dolby® TrueHD and DTS-HD® sound formats means you hear the full potential of every movie and music source. Network FunctionsThis AV receiver provides a variety of network functions that enable you to access more sources and also enhance operation.

AV Controller App for Easy, Convenient OperationThis AV receiver lets you use the Yamaha AV Controller App that is downloadable from the iTunes App Store or Google Play to control power on/off and volume, select input and DSP modes and operate other functions from an iPhone or Android devices. You can also use in as many as 23* different languages and customize the interface by hiding unused icons and renaming functions. A tablet version is also available. AV Controller App Provides Zone ControlThe AV Controller App is extremely useful for controlling various functions in multi-zone installations. Zone selection is easily done by choosing zone icons which can be changed (bedroom, kitchen, etc.). You can control power on/off, input selection and the volume level in each zone and also rename the zones. The app also shows when the Party Mode is being used and allows volume control of this function. Advanced Multi-language GUI On-screen DisplayYamaha’s latest graphical user interface has a high resolution display with clear, easy-to-use menus and also includes a selectable status bar that shows input source, volume level, DSP mode and audio format. The GUI provides a choice of eight languages: English, French, German, Japanese, Russian, Spanish, Italian and Chinese and can be displayed over both normal and 3D pictures. Extra-convenient SCENE PLUSThe SCENE PLUS function simplifies operation by providing one-touch power-on along with selection of the desired source and the appropriate DSP programs. SCENE PLUS offers a choice of 12 SCENE selections, four of which can be assigned to the second zone in a multi-zone system. SCENE PLUS can be selected from the front panel, remote control, GUI and even from the AV Controller App. USB Digital Connection for iPod, iPhone and iPad on the Front PanelA USB port on the front panel allows convenient connection of an iPod/iPhone/iPad, which also charges when connected. Because the digital signal from the iPod/iPhone/iPad is transmitted directly to the AV receiver, there is no signal loss or interference, so you enjoy the best possible sound quality. In addition, you can use the receiver’s remote control unit to operate the iPod/iPhone/iPad music playback functions. Ultra HD (4K) Pass-through and UpscalingThis AV receiver's HDMI input/output supports 4K video image pass-through. It also can perform 4K upscaling to boost a lower resolution image to super high-def resolution. This ensures compatibility with the latest super high resolution video formats. Advanced HDMI Zone Switching Allows Unprecedented AV Switching to Multiple ZonesWhile standard HDMI zone switching can only send HD video programs to the main and second zones, Yamaha’s advanced HDMI zone switching adds the capability to choose from all audio and video sources for playback in either zone. An on-screen graphical user interface makes it easy to browse and select content to enjoy from the second zone no matter what is being played in the main zone. Yamaha Video Processing Optimizes Video ContentYamaha’s high-end video projector engineering expertise has produced various advanced processing techniques that are applied to this AV receiver. These include edge adaptive deinterlacing to smooth out jaggy noise, motion adaptive deinterlacing to detect moving or still images for precise pixel-by-pixel processing and multi-cadence detection including 3-2 pull-down. Proper processing makes viewing enjoyment complete no matter what video source or content. MHL® (Mobile High-Definition Link) Support for High Quality Video and AudioMHL provides easy, direct connection of compatible mobile phones and this AV receiver. Playback of up to 1080p video and multi-channel audio from the phones is supported. The receiver also charges the connected phone. Play, stop and other basic operations can be controlled from the remote control. YPAO™ R.S.C. (Reflected Sound Control) Sound Optimization with Speaker Angle MeasurementYPAO analyzes room acoustics and performs speaker angle measurements, then calibrates audio parameters to achieve optimum sound at any of several listening positions. It employs Reflected Sound Control to correct early reflections for studio-quality sound. It also provides DSP Effect Normalization, which varies the CINEMA DSP parameters according to the reflected sounds. High-resolution Music Enhancer further Heightens Musicality from the Original ContentHi-bit high-sampling extension up to 96 kHz/24-bit can be applied to lossless 44.1/48 kHz content such as from a CD (2-channel PCM) or a FLAC file for further heightening of the musicality in the original content. Compressed Music EnhancerWhen music is encoded into a digitally compressed format like MP3, the frequency response suffers. Yamaha’s Compressed Music Enhancer employs sophisticated digital signal processing using exclusive algorithms to restore what was lost, so the music always sounds the way it should. Dialogue Lift and Dialogue Level Adjustment for Natural Dialogue and VocalsDialogue Lift raises the sound of dialogue from the center speaker to a position in the center of the screen. Newly developed virtual dialogue lift achieves dialogue lift function even without the need for presence speakers. Dialogue Level Adjustment lets you control the volume of the vocal sound, so you hear movie dialogue and music vocals at the ideal level for clear, comfortable listening. Handy Trigger ControlThe CX-A5000 provides two "Trigger Out" jacks that enable control of connected component functions such as power on/off and input selection. The MX-A5000 or another amplifier or subwoofer with a "Trigger In" jack can be connected to allow use of the convenient trigger function. Selectable Auto Power StandbyAuto Power Standby lets you save energy by selecting to turn off the power after two, four, eight or 12 hours. Low Standby Power ConsumptionYamaha makes its receivers eco-friendly with a low standby power consumption of 0.3 W in IR Standby mode (5.0 W in HDMI Standby Through mode, 2.2 W in Network Standby mode).

  14. Item: 2 x VINCENT AUDIO SP-997 MONO BLOCK AMPLIFIERS, Silver in Colour Location: Ballarat, Victoria Price: $500 each unit (Price is negotiable. Will consider offers) Item Condition: In very good condition, one has a small dint on the top edge, and a red mark on the face - see photos. Reason for selling: Down sizing my home theatre Payment and delivery method: Negotiable, although together weight is 13kg, so delivery is likely to be expensive, happy for pick up. Extra Info: These have been used as monoblocks in combination with my Cambridge Audio Azur 840A. Have since needed to down grade, so have to give these up. The SP-997 Mini Mono Power Amplifier a logical consequence of the enormous success of our SP-996. Allot of time and effort has gone into the development of this unit, thus a natural partnership with the SAV-C1 decoder preamplifier from Vincent is assured. Whether you need Stereo or 7 channel this unit makes the perfect choice. In the SP-997 you have one integrated signal circuit, which after 30 minutes if no signal is being transmitted the unit completely switches off. In addition it comes with a 12V-Trigger, allowing you to switch numerous devices. Both functions are designed not to affect the audio signal. German design quality at it's best. You won't be disappointed with the audio these churn out. Specs as per the Vincent Audio website: System/Format: Mini Mono Integrated Amplifier Frequency Range: 20 Hz - 22 kHz +/- 0.5 dB Nominal Output Power: 2 x 200 Watts into 4 Ohm 2 x 150 Watts into 8 Ohm Total Harmonic Distortion: < 0.1 % max.

  17. So, sold my dynaudio contour 2's, so I could literally fund my entire new theatre setup. (Minus the screen) What Im currently searching for are my 2 fronts, I've boiled it down to Wharfedale 9.6's OR Dali Concept 8's...guys...which set?? Very hard to audition now as they're both discontinued and well, old. I see that the rrp of the concepts was about $2k, the wharfedales realistically around $1300, which seems the better speaker? These will be for movies, music is a very distant second in this setup. thanks J!
  18. My family and I were very privileged to go to a show tonight by this group. We live in Alice Springs and therefore are part of the community which includes a large proportion of Aboriginal people. This I believe is not the same as most of Australian communities. It may not be widely known, but the Indigenous Australian people have many difficulties to integrate to western society. (May I also state that I am not a Greenie, or a Tree hugger or a Bleeding heart or an Art tarty or whatever alternative person.) So This show was about the specific group/family from Alco Island. They have dedicated this show to reduce suicides in Australia, especially under Indigenous people. It was a fantastic show. It really hit me emotionally. Please go and watch the show if you have the chance - it will open your heart and mind.
  19. Hi folks. I'm asking what feels like a question which has probably been posted 1000 times - but I had a search through the forum and couldn't find anything. Please direct me to it if you know where it exists! Essentially I just need a couple of TV's to be wall mounted in my home - and before all the well intentioned DIY'ers say "do it yourself, it's easy!" - no thanks, I will not do it myself. I'm not tempting fate with a self-install on a brand new 65" TV which will take pride of place in the theatre - plus I want the option to sue if it falls down! The second TV probably needs a power point moved and maybe a new aerial point (which is another story because apparently I may need a 2nd aerial!) - but it's a smaller 42" plasma. I already have the bracket for the 65" (came with the telly) and I have my eye on a tilt/swivel jobby from Selby for the 42". If anyone can recommend a decent installer, please let me know. I've had Home IT and Entertainment quote me $230 each - but was interested to know if anyone had other experiences they could share. Cheers, Chris
