Recommended Posts

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
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 ;) .

      Fibbr is renowned for the quality of its 4K signal over long distances, BTW I've even got pricing on 70Mtr cables too. Fibbr are active cables and get their power from the HDMI plug, they don't need and additional USB port to power them. They are capable at all the lengths I've listed as playing a perfect 4.4.4 4k image on all current 4k devices. 
      I've only connected my showroom with Fibbr - Before I negotiated these prices GRRR...

      Price: $2000 Item Condition: Immaculate Shipping Options: Pickup is available Suburb or Town: Balwyn State: Victoria Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal Reason for selling: Upgraded $1700 for the big 250s on their own.
      I recommend grabbing the 240c it's a great speaker at less than 1/2 RRP here. 
      The 250s weigh in at 30kg each so local pickup only. Pictures make them look small but they are
      44.5 inches tall with twin 8 inch bass drivers. The centre speaker uses the same tweeter and midrange
      driver as the towers and the blend across the front stage is excellent. Can demo for interested buyers.

      Price: $1250 Item Condition: 9.5/10 Shipping Options: Pickup is available,Audition is not available, but in-person pickup can be arranged with limited personal contact Suburb or Town: Terrigal State: New South Wales Payment Method: Paypal, EFT, Cash on Pickup Reason for selling: Got the okay from the boss for bigger speakers Further information: 
      These speakers are virtually new as I have only had them for about three weeks and gone through the initial break in period. I bought them as an open box in mint condition. I wanted to try out a sealed speaker design and boy do these deliver what I was hoping for. Never mind the -6dB at 60Hz, with a sealed design they slope down very smooth and do not drop off like a ported design. Placed in my room I had output down to 25Hz - pretty good for their 7 litre volume and 125mm driver. These are high power handling speakers and with a lot of current they have incredibly tight bass akin to a sealed subwoofer design. Bass notes have a sharp front edge with lots of definition and punch. Acoustically suspended the drivers spring back into position to give that tight bass sound. They are very fun speakers indeed. ATC is a leader in professional monitors so these speakers are a great way to have a listen to what this company has to offer in their consumer range. I did put some rubber feet on the bottom for listening and when removing them for the sale the satin finish has a slight change to it's finish after cleaning. Since it's on the bottom it will never be seen but for full disclosure I thought I would mention it. It is hardly noticeable unless you reflect light on it in a certain way.
      Tried them with 400wpc Ncore and also 8wpc 300b SET. Both sounded great. (They only dip down to 6 Ohms so no problem for most amps)
      The only reason I am selling is that my wife said she wants big speakers again (god bless her) and so I need to start selling gear before she changes her mind! I will consider an ATC floorstander after hearing these.
