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 / Bank Transfer if posted
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 ;) .

Register interest. Mainly to explore the benefit of a fully balanced signal chain due to the arrival of a new toy which is balance only (the ARC ref75 yeah!)

 

Is the output circuit a native balaned design?

      The weight alone shows that a solid power unit has been integrated, capable of guaranteeing stability. The 6800uF filter capacitors, a ring core transformer and electronic volume control all make a clear statement. The SV-400 is also equipped with a D/A converter in order to playback music formats offered by a PC or music server. A USB socket acts as the input here.

      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.
