Item Condition:

 

Used, but all in immaculate condition with no scratches etc., except for 1 ding to the corner of the rear wall speaker’s housing (not very noticeable) happened when installing :(.

All amp gear is about 1.8 ish years old, the speakers I bought from my old man I am the second owner all ways been respectably powered and not trashed. 

 

Reason for selling:

 

Life throws us some bumps in the road… And I am needing the money over the audio nirvana. 

 

Payment Method:

 

Pickup - Cash, Paypal, Bankcheque etc.

 

Extra Info:

 

As all ways it would be nice to try sell it to someone as an entire kit to get them started in the world of Hi-FI & Home Cinema but I am keeping an open mind so for now I will float it as an EOI to test the waters on the off chance someone out there would buy the lot. Everything can be demoed still setup in my listening room I swear if someone was keen on an entire system and had the money to out lay at once I can guarantee one sit in the room and they would be sold! :)

 

The Audiolab M-DAC needs a special mention if you’re in the know you will know its received a lot of hype and if you know more the guy that created and designed it all split away from audio lab and started his own company ‘LakeWest’ my M-DAC was sent to his workshop and he modified it to have a Home Theatre bypass and paid to have all resistors in the analogue audio stage replaced with Vishay Naked Z-foil’s as it was later apparent by John at lakewest the that china manufacturing process substituted resistors from the original design scope which degraded the sound quality, even though it was still awesome the replacement with the Z-Foils and re-worked power supply rail’s has taken it to another level!. 

 

The H/T bypass is great as I can have the M-DAC connected directly to my power amp and play music back in its purest form without any data manipulation (all bit-perfect) and the M-DAC its self really brings the music alive!, the modifications were not cheap as z-foils are expensive !, details below.

 

MDAC L1

“MDAC internal PSU section upgrade (this upgrades 6 of the PSU supply rails around the ESS DAC, reducing modulation spurie by up to x1000 (40dB) around the ESS DAC).â€

 

MDAC L2 - which includes the L1 upgrade which my unit has.

“Full rebuild (redesign) of the CROSS analogue stage, over 56 components changed in the Analogue section + MDAC L1. Major leap in sound quality. Vishay Naked Z-foil resistors (Toy/Fusion) During development/testing of MDAC L2, results have shown that certain components (resistors) can have a significant effect on sound quality when used in a feedback loop. This upgrade further enhances MDAC L2. Originally, only 4 resistors were considered to be critical, but the revelation around resistors itself led to the idea of replacing all "important" resistors in direct analog signal path by the Z-foil resistors.â€

 

You can no longer get your M-DAC modded by John because he's commenced work on the MDAC2 and does not have time to upgrade any more units.

 

The Marantz has not been used for amplification just as a pre-amp, HDMI switcher and other features like AirPlay (overkill I know but I was going to use the on board amps to power other external room speakers)

 

Summary:

In summary, this might not be the best of the best but to me and I am sure many others if they had this system,  it is the first audio setup I have had that I now say Movie Cinema's are a waste of time because the audio sounds appalling. When I am playing any form of music in 2-Channel playing live LP's for example, I get goose bumps imagining my self there because of the atmosphere and stage it recreates and how real it feels.. I quote from Wikipedia with the key words underlined. 

 

"Goose bumps, may involuntarily develop when a person is cold or experiences strong emotions such as fear, nostalgia, pleasure, euphoria, awe"... surely if your system is recreating this you have a good combination of components regardless of price point or brand, and I am not easily impressed.

Sad to see someone having to sell their whole system for the reasons you have stated. Hope things pick up somehow and you can withdraw a few items to hang onto. Otherwise, VGLWS!
