FS: Violectric V281 Headphone Amplifier (Balanced and Single Ended functionality)

Recommended Posts

Item: Violectric V281 Headphone Amplifier (Balanced and Single Ended functionality)
Location: Glen Waverley, Victoria (pickup available in Docklands)
Item condition description: Excellent.
Price and price conditions: $1695  RRP: $2695  Selling at a thousand dollars off RRP
Reason for selling: Down-sizing
Payment Methods: Paypal (add 3%), Cash - Pickup, Bank Transfer. 
Extra info: This VERY VERY GOOD headphone amplifier (works for both balanced and single ended) provides a huge expansive sound that also has a small hint of what can be described as "tube warmth" (even though it's completely solid state). It can provide two different sounds. In single ended mode, it's warmer but in balanced mode it is more neutral. An excellent combination with both my HD800 and MrSpeakers Ether Flow (open).

      (thanks Rockeater. That is the first thing I did but they direct me a local dealer in Melbourne that never reply any email.

      Hi,
       
      So currently I have nothing setup, but have narrowed down on speakers and am looking for what avr/power amp/dac are required to make work everything I desire.
       
      Id like to be able to have a 2ch setup for a main tv/kitchen/living area, with speakers to play:
      - music currently on a hard drive (internal and external);
      - tv/movies through streaming apps like Netflix through a Fetch box or a Xbox1 or a Chromecast;
      - streaming apps/Youtube through casting from an iphone.
       
      Sound quality of music is the priority, but I do find it much easier to hear spoken words on tv with separate speakers.
       
      I have been looking at Ascension speakers from Adelaide and talked to the guy there last year.  The likely model will be around 150 wrms at 8 ohms. I will call him again to discuss, but if I remember correctly from what he recommended last time, an AVR to drive such speakers is expensive relative to the speakers just to offer extra channels that I don't need. Would a suitable alternative be a 2ch power amp plus a second device to hand all the digital inputs?
       
      Emotiva BASX A-300 or AMC: 2N100MKII-2 are both 150w 8ohm power amps for about $800, but an AVR that can do 150w at 8 ohms are about $5k - what am I missing here? Ive looked into this several times over the last year and I feel like I am just going round in circles.
       
      Any help would be appreciated. Cheers.
