Item: Sonore DLNA Music Server- Plays your Flac, Wav and all digital files
Item Condition: Used
Reason for selling: Streaming music now
Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal, COD Only
The digital output from this server sounds amazing and it plays most file formats, flac, wav etc..
This is based on the audio server that Sonore / Green Computer used to sell before the rendu series of products took off and is similar to Vortexboxes sold here in Australia in so much that it uses the same software platform.
This was custom built for me by Jesus Rodriguez (the main tech guy and founder of Sonore). He helped select the design options and built the server for me. I chose not to include a ripper so the server is dedicated to music playback – just load your files and play…!!
The server has not had much use as I have been streaming all my music with Tidal and before that it was installed in a second system that only had occasional use.
It has an intel processor running Linux (massively heat-sinked so no fan is needed) and the server is pretty much silent in operation) and has a high quality external power supply.
The Operating System is on a solid state disk and I had the server configured with 4TB of western digital disk (my music is still loaded). You can attach a hard disk via USB for back-up purposes as well
The output interface is a specialised studio quality output card that was used in Sonore severs at the time.
The unit is provided with a custom Cardas cable (originally over $300 usd) that was made specifically for these units and provides an XLR - AES / EBU connection to your DAC.
You can use your favourite app or the web interface to the server to view, play and manage your music collection. Any number of renderers can serve up your music and the server has software such as Vortex box and squeezebox, alreadyloaded etc.. I used squeezebox which works really well.
Happy to demo the unit but its pretty straight forward to use for those familiar with servers / and their associated software renderers such as squeezebox, MPAD, etc.

Item: QAT RS3 Music Server in Black or Silver
Location: Tivoli Hi-Fi 155 Camberwell Road Hawthorn East VIC 3123
Price: $980 Including Freight anywhere in Australia
Item Condition: Silver is new in box, black is ex display
Payment Method: Direct Deposit, Paypal, Cash - Pickup in store, Credit Card including AMEX with no fees or penalties.
PM Tivoli Hi-Fi staff member @jimsan after hours for prompt response.
Extra Info: For those looking for a simple, high quality single room music server, the QAT sounds phenomenal, use either the single ended RCA outs or the balanced XLR. Can be used as a server only if you have an external DAC you love. If you plug in and external CD drive like a HP via the front USB the QAT software will rip your CD as a FLAC or WAV file and grab artwork and song metadata. This should be getting a lot more praise because we think it is a brilliant device.
The RS3 Music Server is built with a high-performance processing circuit design, using custom-built chips, a high performance DAC and PCM format audio with a high sampling rate. Can handle everything up to 24-bit 192kHz. A mainstay of QAT music servers, RS3 has a 2.5 inch hard disk slot conveniently placed on the front panel, supporting both SSD and HDD disks, replacing a hard disk with another taking up only seconds.
RS3 Music Server also allows connection of external devices through 3 USB ports and by way of wireless signal to network accessed storage (NAS), which gives nearly unlimited, additional storage.
QAT has developed in-house an app ‘QAT’ to control the server to listen, rip and copy from anywhere with Wi-Fi signal. Our app comes both for iOS and Android devices, with tablets to control all functions, and phones for playback controls on iOS, on Android all functions are available on either devices. The apps are available for free on app store and the QAT website.
Item: Linn Sneaky DS Music Digital Music Player
Price: Price bump $1500 - A fabulous bargain at this price!!!!!
Item Condition: As new
Reason for selling: Different direction - embarassed to admit to being in love with Sonos UI...
Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal.
Extra Info: Virtually brand new, bought August last year from Tivoli. RRP is $2995. Open to reasonable offer as I've decided I like the Sonos UI interface (I have several Play 5 and 3's around the house) enough to forgo the musicality of the Sneaky.
