  1. Well it is the go to tube for Aqua, no brainer, quieter, definitely more dynamic which makes me to forget I am using a tube dac but still enjoy all the magic of tubes such as soundstage, Layers however, Dave spoiled with one of his rare Mullard NOS 1950s and oh no this is the best, quiet, dynamic but more musical than Telefunken

  4. Further information: Sold my second system, selling this to raise fund for a larger purchase. Crystal is one of the most precious cable brand on the planet together with Siltech Reference Diamond is current latest model and second top of line in Diamond series, PICCOLO DIAMOND MICRO DIAMOND REFERENCE DIAMOND "REFERENCE DIAMOND speaker cable employs higher diameter conductors than MICRO yet with the same flexibility as PICCOLO and MICRO. Providing even more of Crystal Cable’s characteristic speed, neutral and transparent performance for a fantastic listening experience." Our heaviest single core cable – REFERENCE DIAMOND – is based on a solid silver-gold alloy conductor. The result is extremely low levels of micro-distortion, resistance and mechanical energy loss. The cable produces superior presentation of time and phase ULTRA DIAMOND Personally, I like those Reference Diamond cables on sweet and extended top end, a touch warm and relaxed sounding, very enjoyable for a mid-price setup system. Solid silver-gold alloy conductors are unique propriety of Crystal that offer second to none sound quality in high performance audio. One end is spades, another end is banana, you can interchange the spade/banana to meet amplifier/speakers need/preference thanks to smart design of slitters. The slitters allow users to flexibly change connectors to meet different setup easily, (no tool is required), also, the slitters are double run on conductors size of each end, IMO this is a smart way to keep big authoritative sound although main cables in "Next top model" shape. Cables are original Australian distributing units from Absolute Highend rrp is around $7300 aud as a reference https://www.thecableco.com/crystalspeak-reference-speaker-cable-with-splitters-pair.html Photos: PLEASE READ If you include any reference to pricing whatsoever in this section (excluding RRP), your ad will not be approved If you are advertising multiple items, you must post one bulk price only, or post seperate ads for each item If you don't include photographs of the actual item being sold, your ad will not be approved You understand that upon successful sale of your item it is expected you pay Seller's Fees. - if you have previously sold items and not made a contribution, your advertisement may not be approved.

  8. Further information: Up for sale the latest release of famous Prime model: VPI Prime 21 which made VPI known as one of the best performance turntable per dollar on the market, dynamic, explosive and accurate are my picks with American handsome looking. VPI offers high-end performance in reasonable package price. VPI Speed Controller ADS Drive is a must upgrade, using a class AB circuit with isolation transformer to generate stable current to provide constant speed, the motor speed is more statable and more immunity to voltage fluctuation of home electric (better speed, aka better timing , aka better performance in analog setup). The class AB circuit of isolation transformer also reduces harmonic kickback from spinning motors which is the secret sauces in high-end turntable design. VPI makes those feature accessible as an upgrade option instead of built-in to turntable package. I am first owner, Prime 21 was purchased from authorised Australian distributor Krispy Audio in April 2021. All VPI Turntable and parts have three years manufacture warranty, so rest assure you are in a good hand.

  10. 25k really buys us nothing in highend speakers nowadays, 25k in 2012 could buy a highend Cessaro chopin speaker set as secondhand but new price for replacement model is 92k rrp, so hiend price has been escalated like Aus property market. Aussie dollars are getting worthless in this hobby. considering we have quite small audiophile community here, it will get smaller and smaller and upset to see new hiend price.
  11. Antipodes’s naming is getting confusing, hope consumers won’t get lost just like the digital formats S30: player, K30: player, S40: server , K40: server only, K41: server only K50: player and server S20: reclocker, K21: player. not sure what happened to short life of K40, and K21 as a step up from S30 but more affordable than K30?
  12. Well, how about "THE HORIZON DAC" and its matching server brand ?
  13. Or buy to use with monos, u get best sound with short speaker cables and monos
  14. That is okie, i turned my phone 90 degree and could see i mean “went into a local HIFI shop to get some cable and walked out with a pair of very expensive Fyne Audio speakers. “
