Further information:

 

Purchased this from another forum member, great sound quality, only selling as I’ve upgraded to the current Bel Canto Stream with Roon endpoint compatibility built in, this would suite someone that wants to stream their own music converted to FLAC, wave format from a NAS, PC etc, comes supplied as shown with box and copy of user manual and fibre cable I never used.  Sound quality wise it is a cut above the majority of other music streamers such as a Squeezebox Touch I’d previously used.

 

 

 

Bel Canto REFStream Network Player. Award winning Streamer Network Player. Complete and priced for quick sale.

Please take time to read reviews. Cheers.

 

RRP $3995 AUD

Not sure, only used it to stream my FLAC music  files direct from my NAS, never used a PC at all. I used the Pro-Ject Audio app on my phone that I also use for a Pro-ject audio streamer to control the music on the Bel canto Stream,  I didn’t even use the J-River app that is referenced in the user manual.

 

The attached link is to the manufactures website and user manual and may explain it better,

      Item Condition: Used = Excellent Shipping Options: Pickup available and you can audition.,Shipping is included in price. Suburb or Town: Teneriffe State: QLD Payment Method: Paypal Cash Reason for selling: NLR - going different direction For sale is this wonderfully musical and smooth headphone amplifier from ALO. Truly a king in its class. I got this from a fellow SNA member and he had lovingly cared for it and amassed a great collection of vintage tubes (described below) to roll for different signatures. The amp is in full working order. The output from each headphone socket is the same and you can run all four at the same time to easily A-B. There are three RCA inputs also, so this is a fantastically neutral tube amp to do comparison testing on. Every store should have one!

      The tubes are:-
      Drivers
      Sylvania 6SN7W metal base (Bought new for 175 pounds and not used much) - great tube!
      Mullard ECC33 (Bought new locally for AUD$250 and not used much) - great tube!
      Ken Rad 6SN7GT black glass (Very good condition) - like the Ken Rad for bass.
      Brimar 6SN7GT black glass (Used)
      GE 6SN7GTB (stock)
       
      Power tubes:-
      Philips JAN 6V6GT blue letterings
      Philips JAN 6V6GT green letterings
      Brimar 511/6V6GT brown base black glass
      RCA 6V6GT smoke glass
       
      Rectifiers
      1 Mullard GZ34 Blackburn factory - both bought new from a local seller. 
      1 JJ Electronics GZ34 (stock tube)
       
      OB2
      4 pairs of Raytheon
      1 pair of Mullard
       
      You will have more than enough tubes. No need to hunt for more tubes. 🙂
       
      Rolling 6SN7, 6V6 and rectifier makes the most difference.... in that order. There are Raytheon and Mullard OB2 and you'll not find much difference between them.
      You'll have 2 very good drivers and they are very pricey. The Sylvania 6SN7W metal base and Mullard ECC33. Besides there are Ken Rad 6SN7G black glass and Brimar 6SN7GT black glass. They give different tones that can be easily heard.
      Sylvania 6SN7W metal base - Very clear, good soundstage and a pretty tight fisted bass.
      Mullard ECC33 - More spread out, more refined and subdue but astonishingly clear. It's a typical British kind of tone.
      Ken Rad 6SN7GT - One of the best bass. Warmer.
      Brimar 6SN7GT - A lighter version of the Ken Rad but a nice variation.
       
      Amongst the 6V6GT that are included:-
      RCA 6V6GT smoke glass - Typical RCA smoke glass that actually sounded similar to the RCA 6SN7GT smoke glass. Warmer, lusher.
      Brimar 511 / 6V6GT - Like the Brimar 6sn7gt, these are much clearer than the RCA. You'll like these.
      Philips JAN 6V6GT blue letterings - You'll like these too. Seems to be the variation in between the RCA and Brimar.
      Philips JAN 6V6GT green letterings - Quite similar to the blue lettering. Difference is slight.
       
      Rectifiers
      People have used Cossor 53ku wide glass, GEC U52 and Mullard GZ34. Cossor has the most bass impact. GEC U52 is very clear and a very good rectifier but so expensive. Tom's recommendation is to stick with the recommended GZ34 and you'll find the Mullard GZ34 blackburn factory ones very good and at a price much less than the Cossor and GEC.
      It's a wonderful journey with the Studio Six.

      Really well made cables with a great sound. I was impressed with bass and high end detail. 
       
      Q2’s inner Long-Grain Copper (LGC) conductor is surrounded by an outer spiral of 11 strands of LGC. The result is AQ’s new flexible Solid+ Concentric Conductor, with sound quality even closer to that of an ideal solid conductor and yet big enough to make a great cable with only two conductors. The two conductors (+ and -) are spiraled for minimum inductance (inductance makes sound seem out of focus), and maximum clarity and dynamics. This ideal cable is then given a sexy, square, deep black outer jacket.
       
      Nice review here
