  1. Further Information: Phasure Lush^3 USB Audio Cable 100cm length USB cable, which allows you to configure connections to tailor the sound. https://stordiau.com/collections/cables-and-more-snakes-oil/products/lush-3-usb-audio-cable?variant=33050760839277 An upgrade from Lush^2 due to materials chosen for shielding and isolation between the shields. Purchased Aug 2023. Retails for $510
  2. Further Information: Selling my Oyaide 5S V2 Continental A-B USB cable, 1.2m long complete with its original box. As you can see from the pics it's in great condition. Excellent cable, transparent, Japanese reknown quality yet at reasonable price compared to some other big names. Can be shipped at cost or picked up in North Sydney (Neutral Bay) or CBD.
  3. Further Information: A good entry point into audiophile power cables if you are still using a generic power cord. I'm also selling an Isotek Initium cable, please see the other ad for this. RRP is currently $269. I also have the box for this. More info can be found by following the link below: https://isoteksystems.com/products/evo3-premier/
  4. Hello SNA, Can any one recommend a good USB cable for a DAC - USB A to USB B. Length : atleast 2m Budget: $100 - $200 Thank you
  5. Hello All I certainly can't say I'm an expert in audio, and know even less about electronics. I'm hoping for some answers to a few questions primarily to do with earthing/grounding, and also how amps connected to the same DAC may influence each other. I've been undertaking some A/B tests using a 3.5 mm A/B switch, an RCA A/B switch, and a 4-pin XLR one, which I'd modified from a 3-pin switch. All switches were Sescom switches, bi-directional, and a photo of the XLR version is below, and the setups relevant to my questions are Config 1 and Config 2 below. The original wiring diagram of the 3pin switch is below, and it's purpose in pro-audio is naturally going to be different to hifi (mono long cable runs vs mono/stereo short cable runs, comparatively). Note that whether the pin numbering is actually correct I don't know, but I'm not sure that it really matters for these questions. So my questions: 3-pin XLR switch 1) With the cable shield being passed to pin 1, does joining all three connector grounds do anything? 2) Given pin 1 isn't switched, won't whatever interference collected by the A/B shields be passed through to each other and whatever the I/O is (and vice versa)? If so, is this an issue and how? 4-pin XLR switch 3) Assuming either the Config 1 or Config 2 setup is being used, and the XLR cables between the switch and the Amps do have the shields soldered to the connector housing, if the connector housings were electrically connected like they were with the 3-pin setup, will there be any impact on the signals from either Amp to the headphones? 4) Some headphone cables (with shields) either do or don't have the shields soldered to the connector. Assuming all connectors in the switch are electrically connected like the 3-pin setup, will there be any difference in the sound signature with a shielded vs non-shielded headphone cable? Config 1 vs Config 2 5) Using one DAC as per Config 2, two 3 pin XLR (or RCA cables) will be needed with a Y-splitter. This electrically connects both Amps and assuming they're both running, will one Amp influence the other? That is, will the signal change? Thanks in advance for any responses

  7. Hello! We live in a block of townhouses that are serviced by telstra cable and we were fortunate enough to have our foxtel installer drop by and install our foxtel service. We have telstra cable internet, which, prior to the install was working. When I got home from work, my partner said the foxtel technician had been and gone, and that we were now able to access FTA channels through out IQ box, however, our wifi was not working. I looked into the roof access point and noticed that the technician had cut and split the coaxial cable that was previously directly routed into the study, where our modem lives. There is now a Hills diplexer installed. The source cable fed from the distribution point is connected to the in/out on one side of the diplexer. On the other side of the diplexer there are two points; FTA and SAT. The SAT connection was fed to the study, where the modem was connected and the FTA connection was fed to the FOXTEL point in the lounge. With this configuration, we could get both FTA and FOXTEL channels through our IQ box, but no internet. After calling up support and riding the foxtel says it's telstra's fault, telstra says it is foxtels fault merry go round, I decided to cut my losses and try playing around with the diplexer. When I swapped the SAT connection to feed FOXTEL, and the FTA connection to feed the modem, the modem connected to the internet but I lost FTA channels on foxtel (foxtel channels still worked). TLDR; -Cable Foxtel and Telstra Internet -Internet previously worked before technician installed foxtel placing a diplexer in roof -With diplexer configured (1) as: - SAT -> Modem = No Internet. - FTA -> FOXTEL IQ = FTA + Foxtel channels through IQ -With diplexer configured (2) as: - FTA -> Modem = Internet - SAT -> FOXTEL IQ = Internet/Foxtel channels only through IQ (no FTA) So I'm frustrated and confused. My options are: 1) get a splitter and split the FTA output of the diplexer to both the modem and the FOXTEL IQ and hope that I get both internet and FTA + Foxtel channels on IQ. Do you think this will work!??? 2) another option suggested by the brilliant people of dtvforum 3) spend the rest of my mortal life, being endlessly transferred between foxtel and telstra. Really looking forward to your help!!

  9. I recently bought a house in Russell Lea, Sydney (2046). We noticed during the inspections that there was no aerial in/on the roof. After deciding to get rid of Foxtel, I have been working out what my options are, for receiving FTA. After stumbling across a few threads, I decided to buy a f-type to coax adaptor and see if I could receive FTA on the Foxtel outlet. Sure enough, this worked. I tried this, as there are two f-type sockets on one side of the room. When moving in, I got Foxtel to run the connection through the roof and down the other side (due to how we needed to set up the room). As I say, I removed foxtel, added the adaptor and ran the coaxial cable to the tv. The first time I did a digital scan (via the Bravia HX929), it picked up 14 stations (no channel 9, 7Mate, Gem or GO!). Re-scanned (on 'full range') and it picked up 6 channels (basically, those listed above but no SBS, ABC etc). When I did have Channel 9, it was very choppy/pixelated. Given the set up through the cable, what would be my options for improving the reception? Would an amp work in this case? Thanks
  10. Any old excuse for a Poll. It's just been too long. I made myself some RG213-U speaker cables long ago and used them on and off until now they are a bit frail and their terminations (serviceable but not great to begin with) and now getting fairly ratty. So, since I no longer have access to a decent shed full of tools I asked Geoff of Aurealis audio to make me up a set, and he did. Of course he used higher quality spades and bananas than my original pair and added some nice looking braid as well, so my new pair is much nicer to look at than my old pair (which is soon to be recycled for bits). Nicely finished. And labeled too. Fancy! What's that, you want to see a pic of my old pair. No, you don't. You really don't. Trust me on this. The reason I built a pair of speaker cables out of RG213-U in the first place was that it was touted as the lowest inductance cable that you could get your hands on at a decent price. And for speaker cables inductance is an important quality, so I bought some and put a pair together. Their performance was good, often not noticeable as better or worse than any of the other speaker cable pairs I have had... but not always. The big plus of these babies was made clear to me when I tried them out with my Halcro power amp. That's right, $40-odd dollar speaker cables used with an eye-wateringly expensive power amp, yep. Once I'd tried them together no other speaker cables quite lived up to the RG213, the bass weight of the Halcro just didn't sound as good with anything else. This did seem odd to me, but you know, stranger things and all that, probably a synergy thing, so I filed that info away for possible later use and moved on. Move forwards to now and I've got a fancy new set that I was thinking of using as my standard cables for all my amp evaluating. I have more expensive cables but many of the amps I write up are $3K and below and no-one is going to use $1K cables with these so nice cheap-and-effective speaker cables seem like a good idea. But, it turns out that they have a pretty distinct sound. I discovered this a few days ago while having a preliminary listen to a borrowed Naim XS 2 (which I intended to be listening to today). At first I thought that the Naim had an extremely good top end and mid range but the bass was big, broad and prominent, slow and muddled and not very deep. The vocals were some of the best I had ever heard and the musicality was simply astounding but that bass was quite the let down. Changing speaker cables brought the bass speed and detail back up and removed the muddled effect but it took a little of the musicality with it. Still a good amp but one that now sounds different enough that I need another few hours to get used to it before I start making notes on it. So, that's why the Poll (not that we need a reason, that's just a bonus). Any others out there with RG213-U speaker cable experience?
  11. Hi peeps, Just wondering if there is any difference in cables used for I²S connecting a source to my dac or can I use any HDMI cable?
  12. Hi guys, When you are on the road of hi-end hi-fi equipment, power supply is one topic attracting a lot of discussions. We hear a lot of good power cable names like voodoo. However here's the problem: majority of these power cables gives only British three-square pin plugs or American two-flat-pin-plus-one-round-pin plugs. There is none for Aussie plug. Also for power conditioning bars they give British and American formats like the product below. http://www.mshdpower.com/products_p.html?category=sockets&class=uk&oem=2&xml=MSUS06SRHKV2&model=MS-US06SRHK V2 While you are using these power bars, where do you find the cable from this bar to your wall socket? Or you simply do yourself a tradie and change the wall socket to British/ American?
  13. Hi, hope everyone is fine during this hard time. I am thinking to re-cable my Beyerdynamic DT880 600 ohm to 4.4mm or XLR. However, I don't have the skill and equipment needed. So, I am wondering if we have headphone re-cabling service around greater Melbourne area? Thank you for your attention to this message.
  14. A new and improved version of the Curious usb cable has been released (Curious Evolved), has anyone heard it yet? How does it compare to the original?
  15. I see the latest Luxman speaker cables have this wire called a "drain wire". Does anyone have any idea what it is meant to do because I'm confused as to its intended purpose. http://www.luxman.com/product/detail.php?id=31 It seems to be utilized in the interconnects as well.
  16. Hi all, I am interested in what tonearm wire do you think is used in linear tracking tonearms? It needs to be: - devoid of any springiness or memory effect (so it doesn't pull on the cartridge as it tracks the groove) - not prone to picking up interference (as a fair length of it is out in the fresh air ) - suited to the electrical task. An example: Any thoughts? And where to get it? cheers
  17. I had a chance to borrow a Bocchino Mayflower interconnect recently from Bruno at Kasum Audio in SA and was astonished by how much they complimented the AudioQuest Sky cables and gave my system a much more 'live' sound with punchier bass. There was also a noticeable spatial improvement with separation of instruments. Placing them between the pre and power amps made the most difference so they are now a permanent feature in my system. Just wanted to know if anyone else had been blown away by the Bocchino cables or other accessories. I have also learnt that they have been suppling AudioQuest with their high-end connectors for the WEL series. They have an amazing high quality feel to them, so I guess this is not really surprising...
  18. Ok SNA'ers. Got this, Mogami Studio Gold XLR cable and running it between my Violectric PPA V600 Phono and my WA22 amp. Sounds great to me. http://www.mogamicable.com/category/gold/ Opinions anyone? 10Audio rates it as a reference. Anyone else uses it?
  19. Hi, everyone. I thought I'd share a few images. I was troubleshooting some radiation equipment and happened to use a generic USB cable and thought, while I'm at it, why not take a picture of all my hi-fi USB cables? I thought I'd start a discussion on which cable you thought looks best from whatever point of view. I didn't label the cables, but if you scroll over the picture, the name of the cable will show up. Try not to cheat and give your honest opinion on which one looks best/worst. The images are in pairs. Standard A type to B type. I'll do more similar stuff with other cables if people are interested (and also whichever cable I have available). Contestant #1 Contestant #2 Contestant #3 Spoilers and hints
  20. For people interested in building "high-end" USB cables: - get this wire http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/10-feet-26-AWG-Precision-Shielded-Silver-Teflon-Wire-Twisted-Pair-Yellow-Round-/230743897692?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item35b968765c - You need two runs of the desired length; one pair for signal +/- and the other for power V+ and GND (if required, considering that a lot of people look into using batteries) - you need A and B USB connectors - Jaycar parts CAT. NO. PP0790 and CAT. NO. PP0792 will do - You will also need steady hands for soldering a bit of patience and a wiring diagram which is here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Universal_Serial_Bus ...and remember - the joy of creation is not in the outcome, it is in the process itself.
  21. To minimise the number of cables, I'm thinking of using a component video cable between the AVR and Power Amp. This will just be for the centre and 2 surround channels. The main L + R are ok and go via HT bypass on a 2ch pre. Are there any major pitfalls in doing this?
  22. Hi, I just ordered myself a John Kenny hiface, which I'm very excited about. However, the hiface comes with a BNC output, whereas I'm currently using an RCA cable into my DAC. Has anyone tried different BNC cables and can recommend one or two? Cheers, Andreas
  23. Spotted these Australian made cables advertised on the Aussie Audio Mart recently. Has anyone tried them yet and are they really worth the extravagent prices advertised? https://siasfodna.com/collections/all They also have a couple of power cables on offer with obviously non-compliant 3-pin plugs and very suspect cable construction. Don't these manufacturer's research their legal obligations before offering this sort of dodgy product to the market? Somehow I don't think EnergySafe would consider the "SMD patent pending Technology" of their cable construction as excusing them from having to comply with AU/NZS 3112 and 3191 requirements.
  24. Hi Guys, I'm about to venture on wiring up outdoor speakers and need to run cable from AV through internal single brick wall, then up into ceiling then drop down again outside under eves. Any thoughts on best penetration face plates, whether to run one continuous cable all the way, or break it up with plugs and faceplate connectors in wall and ceiling etc. Whether to drop out through eves outside, or better to drop down in double brick wall cavity and come out through brick wall etc ?? Any pros/cons/lessons learnt/links to good products etc would be much appreciated. Cheers, Jimmy
  25. Hi everyone, We've got a huge number of JIB cables on clearance in the store at the moment, I've set the prices well below what they're available for anywhere else as we don't plan on stocking them again once they're gone. If you find a cheaper price anywhere for the JIB cable, I'll beat it. There's even some really nice high end XLR and RCA cables. I've also made speaker cable available by the metre in the store. Regards, Daniel
