Further information:

 

Bought off another member in October 2020 and have since modded it with Copper around both Power Supplies and twisting the cables.

The Sound is superb, especially after the small mods. I cant imagine anything better.

 

Will throw in a pair of 80cm Swamp balanced XLR cables

A quote from one user review

 

"OK, so the nitty gritty. I have TWO of them in two systems and could not be happier. I had foolishly jumped in and paid even more for a Schiit YGGDRASIL until I received an LKS MH-DA004 and the difference in audio quality was obvious. So I sold the YGGDRASIL and purchased a second LKS. Note, the YGGDRASIL DAC is a fine unit, but the LKS is better. Cleaner reproduction generally on classical music, particularly with larger ensembles where the LKS reveals more detail of the individual instruments playing, has more air and delicacy and eliminates traces of digital harshness"

Yeah it is very nice. I might even end up buying another one once I set up 2 channel stereo listening again. Will end up keeping it too if nobody wants to buy it for $1150 :).

      The Corrs – Jupiter Calling

      The album was primarily recorded live, with minimal overdubbing.
      While working on the album, producer T-Bone Burnett made use of 40 spools of two-inch tape and a Ludwig drum kit for the fullest analog sound.
      It works.

      Item Condition: Mint Shipping Options: Pickup available and you can audition.,Shipping is available at agreed cost. Suburb or Town: DALKEITH State: WA Payment Method: Reason for selling: Extra Info: JBL made 4 pairs of these in gloss black as special demo speakers, this is one of those pairs!  There are only 3 other sets in the world!
      They are the Special Edition models, in fantastic condition, lightly used, always with the best amps etc driving them (Goldmund, Krell...)
      These are amazing speakers, I thought I would keep them forever, but circumstances have changed...
      Give me a yell if you would like to see/hear them.
      David.

      Item Condition: 8/10 Shipping Options: Pickup available but audition is not available.,Shipping is available at agreed cost. Suburb or Town: Tumbulgum State: NSW Payment Method: Bank transfer / Cash / Cheque Reason for selling: Planning to go passive LS50 Meta Further information: There is a pair of LS50 Meta's up for sale here and i own a Devialet amp. For a while i've been thinking of going passive with the Devialet amp so if I can sell these, I'll buy the LS50 Meta's.
       
      In 2017 I lost some speakers in a flood and because I was insured, the insurance company bought me these. They're not my main speakers so I hardly use them. They wouldn't have more that a few hundred hours on them.
       
      I don't have the boxes anymore but I have plenty of ply wood lying around and can build a crate for safe transport.

Suburb or Town: Doncaster State: VIC Payment Method: Paypal (buyer need pay thr fees) , EFT, Cash on Pickup Reason for selling: bought new amp Further information:
       first densen pre amp and the current densen still use the same design . This amp are very musicality and natural , sound will get better after some warm up .

      Densen didn’t make many of DM20 preamp and this is one of the early one . 
      well build and icon design 
       
       
      Description :
      The Densen DM-20 is designed and built without compromises. It is a successful merger of extravagant sound, design, and usability. The design trademark compact aluminum case, is not only good-looking and easy to incorporate in any interior – it also dissipates heat and reduce magnetic distortion much more effectively than the large steel cases used by many manufacturers. In 1994 at the CES winter show, the Densen DM-20/DM-30 preamp/poweramplifier combination was named the “Highest airguitar factor and best affordable sound” at the CES. In later years, Densen has used the slogan “Life is too short for boring hifi” to describe the Densen sonic signature. Densen hints that the truth of sound is a combination of the Flat earthers focus on PRAT (Pace Rhythm and Timing), and the more classic audiophile focus on timbre, details, soundstage and tonal character. For several years now the phrase has been used by Densen to describe the ultimate goal for all Densen systems, namely that the performance is so good that the listener wants to stand up and play the airguitar, instead of passively letting himself be entertained. Engaging is perhaps the best word to describe the sound from the DM-20. The strong and quick music will breathe through the atmosphere and musicians' emotion can be felt in the sound. A discreetly elegant addition to any home, the Densen DM-20 provides with world-renowned musical experiences and family-friendly usability.
