  1. Tiny footprint AB class power amp from Melbourne Company Burson. Bought for $500 from Addicted to Audio a year ago. Sounds good but I've moved to a more powerful system for that room
  2. $500 RRP from addicted to audio 12 months ago. Great compact AB amp, Selling because I’m upgrading my headphone amp to something without a pre output.
  3. Lovely headphone amp in great condition. Selling this and my Cambridge DACmagic 100 (separate listing) because I now have an Audient interface for music recording that doubles as a DAC/amp. Retails for ~550 these days. What you'll love: - Gorgeous blasted metal finish. - Sounds *crisp* - Has asynchronous 24/96 reclocking USB connection to remove jitter and noise if you use without DAC - Dual 3.5mm and 1/4" outputs. If you buy this and the Cambridge together (great combo) I'll include Concerto II RCA interconnects. Has or
  4. Brilliant DAC with 24 bit Wolfson chip supporting 24 / 192. Generally sell new for $330. Surplus to my needs now, because I bought an Audient Sono as an interface, which also works as a good DAC. I'm also selling a Musical Fidelity V90 headphone amp. The two have been a great combo for me, and if you want both I'll throw in a good Chord RCA interconnect. Bought from Carlton Audio Visual a few years ago. Comes with original PSU -- and I'm pretty sure the original box also if that's important to you (it's in my garage somewhere). Photo
  5. Further information: Purchased on this forum ~9 months ago for $1000 used. RRP is $1600. It's a great DAP with enough power to drive headphones, enough storage for your essential FLACs, and easy Tidal streaming. I have also used it as a home streamer/DAC. Just leave it plugged into power, connect to your preamp, and use the AKConnect app to stream from the inbuilt storage, an SD card, Tidal, or DLNA. The reason I'm selling? I was planning to use this as a DAP in my office or when travelling for work. Neither are happening at the moment, and I made some lon
  6. SNA pals, Purchased on this forum ~9 months ago for $1000 used. RRP is $1600.

  7. Just wanted to share a hearty recommendation for Bright Star Audio's Isonode dampening feet. I had my speakers spiked into bamboo, but wondered if these would reduce the sound transmitted to the bedroom directly below. They have. And they've made the bass on my Rega P5s sound noticeably tighter (I'm running a Cambridge CXN > Rega Elicit R). I haven't tested them against other commercial alternatives like sorbothane etc. I assume there isn't too much difference TBH. But I did compared them to my spiked setup, to rubber doorstoppers from bunnings, and in the case of
  8. Thanks everyone; really appreciate the input!
  9. Hey team. I have an XLR output (from Cambridge CXN) and I'm going to run it into an RCA input (Schiit Vali 2 which I'm using as a pre-amp). I'm running the cable about 5m. My question is: should I run 2 separate XLR cables, then use XLR>RCA adaptors on each? Or should I just grab a 2>1 XLR adaptor or cable, run one quality cable, then split it into 2 RCAs. The cable will be going through a wall and will run reasonably close to some power and ethernet cables etc so there will be some noise to shield, but since it's not going to end up being balanced anyway, I figure 1 cable i
  10. Hey folks I'm after a smallish integrated or power amp for desktop setup. I'd LOVE a Brio but similar stuff definitely considered. Thanks!
  11. Thanks for the thoughts mate. For the record, I went ahead and bought the Burson Bang and ran the Schiit Audio Vali 2 as a pre-amp. Together they have plent of power. The Vali has a high output mode, which i couldn't imagine switching on -- and the Kann is set to 0.7V line-out but could go up to 2V. The sound is a bit muddy at the moment, but I think that has a lot to do with the room and placement in a corner on hardwood floors, which i'm working on changing.
