Item: W4S STP-SE Pre-Amplifier with HT Bypass (Black)
Item Condition: Used - Excellent Condition see Photos
Reason for selling: Upgrade/ NLR
Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal (as a friend or +fees), COD Only
Purchased this Pre from @scumbag. Has been an excellent addition to my system and was a real keeper - however I have simplified my setup and moved away from separates.
Lots of great reviews of this unit online and on the forums. Instead of trying to explain the magic myself, refer to the following from previous listing I purchased from:
The unit will come with power lead, remote, manual and double boxed. I also bought a 2nd remote from Deep HZ (brand new & not used). The surface of the original remote had become slightly sticky but completely functional. Both remotes included. Able to ship interstate at buyers expense and risk; rest assured it will be well packed.
Links to some reviews and features from the W4S website:
Input / Output wiring upgraded to Kimber Tcss wire 2nd stage filtering caps (4-22,000uf caps) are upgraded to the Wyred 4 Sound Low ESR "SUPER CAP" designed for power supplies Vacuum Fluorescent Display (VFD) Optical rotary encoder (volume knob) Fully functional remote control 12V DC Trigger input (to automatically activate HT Bypass mode) Two - 12V DC Trigger outputs Home Theater bypass (customizable for any input, also DC Trigger input selected) Balance control Absolute phase control (0°/180°) - an interesting experience - it's amazing how changing the absolute phase effects the sound. Efficient (no heat) Tripple-ripple reduction circuit contains 164,560uF of capacitance Extremely low noise floor Fully balanced input to output Buffered passive/active design Automatically switched in Line Stage (when more volume is needed) Discrete volume control using dale RN55d resistors Unbalanced to Balanced conversion (when RCA input selected and XLR outputs are being used) Idle power consumption = 15w Rugged construction ½” Machined and Anodised front panels 60kohm input impedance 3 sets of gold plated unbalanced (RCA) inputs 2Â sets of gold plated unbalanced (RCA) outputs 2 sets of Neutrik Balanced (XLR) inputs 2 sets of Neutrik Balanced (XLR) outputs Factory Selectable mains 115/230VAC Compact size (17”W x 4”H x 13”D) 22lbs.

Item: Wyred 4 Sound DAC-1 with femto clock upgrade
Location: Sth Gold Coast
Price: $600 Firm (incl. delivery within metropolitan Australia - would also help out if you are further afield).
The current RRP for the DAC-1 in Australia without the upgraded clock is $1250. The only difference being the higher resolution capability of the USB module in the current productions.
Item Condition: Excellent. Not a mark on it.
Reason for selling: Having a change
Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal (+ any fees), COD Only
Extra Info: DAC was purchased new from Deep Hz Audio in November 2015 with the femto clock upgrade which cost an additional $275. I decided on the DAC-1 with upgrade over the DAC-2 as I didn't need the pre-amp or other features and by all accounts SQ is pretty close between the two. The USB on this unit is limited to 24/96 but goes higher over coaxial (and toslink I assume). Non-DSD version too.
I've really enjoyed this DAC but thought I would have a change. I think there is some transferable warranty.
Here is the W4S link including features and specification. This is for the current V2 model although the features list seems identical other than higher resolution over USB. Here are the Positive Feedback review and 6 Moons review of the DAC-1. The latter includes some comparisons with other DACs including PS Audio.
There is more info out there on the DAC-2 which will give you a good idea of performance. This link explains the differences between DAC-1 and DAC-2.
Item: Wyred4Sound Remedy Reclocker + Gieseler Linear Power Supply
Location: Cleveland, QLD (4163)
Price: $475 (Shipping +$15, PayPal +3%)
Item Condition: Used, very good condition
Reason for selling: No longer required.
Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal (+3%) , Bank Transfer
Listing is for a Wyred4Sound Remedy Reclocker (purchased 20-Oct-2015) and a Gieseler Linear PSU (purchased 31-Dec-2015), original Australian printed invoices are included for both items.
Used between a Sonos Connect and a Devialet 120 to great effect, reduced jitter was immediately noticable and converted the Connect into a high-performance device.
Although the reviews for the Reclocker have generally been very positive, I've found that the performance jump added when using the Gieseler Linear PSU to the Reclocker took its performance into a whole new realm (a bigger jump than the reclocker itself out of the box!) , and once heard with it, couldn't recommend listening without it. I've found the performance jump gained with this combo scales well when using even better sources/dac, not just entry/mid level etc.
Current RRP $870+
Reclocker Features (from website):
Utilizes an incredible Femto-grade clock Superior jitter reduction Toslink and Coaxial digital inputs Toslink, Coaxial, BNC digital outputs 96kHz output sampling frequency* Digital inputs support up to 24/192kHz 9VDC power supply included 5 year warranty
Gieseler Linear PSU:
This linear low noise DC power supply is designed to improve the performance of digital audio accessory devices that are normally powered by small SMPS plug-packs. All the internal components are of high quality & are selected for reliability & sound quality where applicable. Capacitors are Nichicon Fine Gold, Panasonic or Elna Silmic II’s. It is powered by external IE core transformers. These have a distinct advantage over the usual Toroidal type as they have better isolation between the windings & lower bandwidth means less HF noise coming in via the mains. Also being external there is less radiated hum entering the power supply circuitry. Noise, hum & ripple levels are very low due to the common mode choke pre filtering & low noise Linear Technology high performance regulators. Also what helps to reduce noise as well is the use of Schottky diodes & a transformer LC snubber. The DC output cable/connection is an area that is often neglected; so I have gone to extra lengths here to get it right. The DC output on the supply uses a Neutrik 6 Amp XLR gold pin socket. The supplied DC cable uses a matching Neutrik gold pin plug hand soldered to a 10A lead with moulded DC barrel connector for ruggedness.
Noise level is approximately 20 uV to 40 uV d. Ripple & hum rejection is approximately 100 dB. Short circuit & thermal protection.
