    Ayon CD-07s top loading, upsampling cd player with remote in nice condition. This is a nice sounding CD player that can upsample CDs to 192 kHz and uses a Class A tube output stage. It has digital inputs for Coax and USB to function as a DAC (Burr-Brown 24 bit/ 192 kHz). There are outputs for both XLR and RCA. There is also a builtin volume control, both on the unit itself and the remote, to enable it to drive an amplifier directly. I can not see any blemishes externally and has seen minimal use in my possession. It has been a joy to listen to however, with little use, time to let someone else enjoy their CD collection. I purchased this unit from Longgo in Sydney June 2022 for $1900. There was/is no original box, manual or power cord included. Tracking the history of this unit I have found the following: https://www.stereonet.com/forums/topic/544707-fs-ayon-cd-07s-tube-cd-playerdac/ https://www.stereonet.com/forums/topic/322286-sold-fs-sold-pending-payment-ayon-cd07s-tube-cd-player/#comment-4610864 https://www.stereonet.com/forums/topic/290499-fs-ayon-audio-cd-07s-tube-cd-player/#comment-4365931 Pickup is available from Ashgrove in Brisbane otherwise, I am happy to post domestically at your expense. Any questions please ask.
  1. Further Information: Great sounding cd player in immaculate condition. It performs flawlessly and comes with all accessories and original packaging. Happy to demo or post.
  2. Now that I've got an Elektra Theatron amp in the HT things are sounding awesome, can't wait to go to the next level with a new HT pre/pro in the next few months. I've borrowed my parents CD player and hooked it up via analogue and am loving listening to CDs compared to via my Oppo 93 via digital but... 1; I have to give the CD player back, and soon 2; I don't have somewhere within the room to store all my CD's. Even DVD's will soon be sent to the under staircase storage area. I'm trying to decide whether I should invest in a CD player or go to a music streaming device such as a Sonos Connect. I'll more than likely buy an Integra DHC 80.3 pre/pro for the HT which, like my Oppo, has streaming capabilities, but I'm told I'm better off with a dedicated device. Are they up to the quality of a half decent CD player of similar budget, ie $500? I often find it hard to sit through an entire CD unless it's on in the background while I'm surfing the net or reading. I'm not particularly interested in streaming video so don't really need a Dune type of device. Sonos would also be the idiot proof way of setting up an alfresco music system down the track (via a Sonos Amp and outdoor speakers) that SWMBO could actually operate. Most of my music collection is already ripped to iTunes in lossless format but I do need to go back and rip about 80 CD's because I originally tried to save HDD space by ripping in low bit rate mp3 format when I bought an iPod Photo... remember them? I have a ATV 2 in the family room (we are a bit of an Apple household, iPhones/iMacs/Macbook Air) and SWMBO can use that but for some reason it's flaky with it's connection to the home sharing facility. It's improved with more recent firmware upgrades but still not foolproof.
  3. As part of the A5 range musical fidelity brought out the A5CD player. Cosmetically in build a match for the A5 integrated and pre-pwr. It was however a limited edition release ... due to a couple of little factors that made it unique....in the the muvista 6112 mil spec valves....these reside in the output stage of the player (mf have a long tradition of using valves on the output stage of the dacs and players. These in particular are extreme long life valves and quoted in this configuration to last 100,000 hours or essentially fitted "for life" spec on the 6112 are here, http://frank.pocnet.net/sheets/137/6/6112.pdf and yep its mil specs mean it will handle 450G's impact, 1000G 's uniform acceleration, 220 DegC and an altitude of 60,000 ft ! as per the spec "The premium subminiature type 6112 is a high mu double triode having separate cathode connections for each section, it is intended primarily for use in low level audio circuits, and is designed to provide dependable service under conditions of severe shock, vibration and high temperature and altitude. The 6112 is manufactured and inspected to meet the applicable MIL-E-1 specification for reliable operation" so yeah valve failure certainly not something to be bothered with anyways a few pics Front and back, under the lid, and with shield over the dac section removed, close up of the dac and analog output stage, and there can see the couple of 6112 valves... one for each channel
  4. A few weeks ago I purchased a YBA Heritage A100 integrated amp. That amp performed so well that I found myself wondering if it was worth picking up the associated Heritage CD100 player as well. So I wondered and I googled and I ordered based on what I found. I must say, I am glad I did. The YBA components compliment each other very well. There are already several pics of the A100 in my 'Addicts Guide' thread but none of the CD100 so let's correct that shall we? Not the greatest pic but it does show off those toggle switches. Once you've experienced toggle switches you won't go back to buttons, toggles are so much more tactile than buttons. And an internal shot, note the R core power supply. It may not be important to some but to me the fact that those opamps are mounted in a "press in" manner that enables me to roll them with ease is a very big thing. There will be some Burson discretes tested out in this puppy by the end of the month. Edit: I just noticed I left the cd in for this pic, I do recall the YBA doing a very nice rendition of the "Gregorian Masters of Chant" album. Great atmosphere on that album. I also seem to be wearing my uggies, what an overly informative picture. And the required 'action shot'. I have yet to get to the details of this review (however it is a long weekend for me so I should be done by Monday night) so this first post is more a preview. The YBA gear gives great atmosphere, almost as effectively as the Sansui AU5900 actually. Where the Sansui uses a whole heap of warmth to impart its atmosphere the YBA's utilize a fullness of tone to achieve a similar effect. It feels like there is more meat in the middle of each note with the YBA combo and that makes the bass sound more full (not deeper or faster but it feels like it has more staying power, you can really sink your teeth into it), lets the mid range fill out the soundstage and tonally fleshes out the top end as well (piano is an absolute delight through the YBAs). The toggle switches on the cd player really work for me, for some reason it is so much more satisfying to use a toggle switch than it is to just press a button. On a more practical note it also allows for two functions per switch, up for one and down for another so YBA can utilize all the usual functions without crowding what is otherwise a very clean looking face plate. The coax input on the back is a nice addition too, so the player can double as a single input DAC. The only thing I have found that displeases me about the YBA Heritage gear so far involves the functionality of the remote control. There is no 'punch through' function on anything, so if you have selected the cd player and you want to change the volume you have to select the amp button first or the volume button is inactive. Similarly if you want to change the track that is playing and you have just adjusted the volume then you have to select the cd player first, otherwise the track forward and back buttons are inactive. A 'punch through' function on the volume control would have been nice. I will say this for the remote though, it is extremely well balanced. I'm very impressed with the YBA Heritage gear and that is without any reference to the price. At two to two and a half K per component I would say they were a good buy but since they cost $1650 for the amp and $1299 for the cd player I would say they are a screaming bargain. (they are on special though, normal RRP is $2K for the amp and $1550 for the spinner, including postage, mine were purchased from A1 Future Shop)
  5. I thought I might do a write up on the Myryad Z series since I liked the Z142 amp so much I went and bought the Z114 cd player. It has been burning in since friday afternoon and I have just had a preliminary listening session. My conslusion is a bit out there so I'll take it slow and work up to it. Anyone who has been keeping track of my "addicts guide" thread knows that the Z142 amp and I are friends for life. It is an amp that has surpassed all integrateds I have heard before, some others have come close but none are quite as much fun to listen to as the Myryad and it does this with only 40 odd watts, 2 transistors per channel and 10,000uf of capacitance per channel. Only the Denon AE1510 had less capacitance and it ran a proprietry "high current circuitry" design that gave it very high levels of punch and bass. When you look under the case the quality is there to see, toshiba transistors, all rubicon capacitors (except for the 2 big ones, which are Nichicon) and no op amps in sight (ok, one, but it operates the servo that controls the remote volume control so it is out of the music loop). And yes, as claimed by Myryad there are seven separate voltage regulators, two each in the power amp circuitry sections, one each in the preamp sections and one on the power board (Myryad kindly label the different sections of the circuitboard, very handy for curious souls like me). The Myryads main claim to fame is its speed, it is so fluid in the mid range that the music just dances out of it in a flurry of sonic joy. It has nice bass that is fast, tight and deep and very well controlled and smooth highs that elate rather than grate on the the senses. In short, I love it! So, what about the cd player? Again it is very well built, rubicon capacitors throughout and seven voltage regulators, all well and good and similar to the amp. But!!! Audio companies like Myryad develope these components with the intent of them operating together, yes? So if there is any one cd player that the Z142 should sound absolutely awesome with it should be the Z114, or at least that is what I thought. As it turns out they sound pretty average when used together. That fluidity and speed are not utilized at all, the bass deepens and fills out but at the loss of the speed and control the amp displays with my test cd player. And the sound gains that "upsampled to the nth degree" aspect, it softens to the point where it can't annoy but can't truly elate either. Together the Z's sound alright, not terrible or anything, but they sound so full and bass heavy and completely unlike the sound I get from my consonance cd120 feeding the Z142. I think this is the sound that Myryad is aiming for, very inoffensive but very processed, smooth and bass heavy and, in my opinion, dull! Together they have no life, they sound like an old married couple who are going through the motions but are just tired of being together. I will try the Z114 player with a few different amps and see if I can get more of a feel for what will work better with it later. Right now I want to put forward an opinion on the Z142 amp. How (or why) does a company make an amp that is this good, has this much potential, and then partner it with a player that drags it down rather than makes the most of its abilities? Is the amp a mistake? It can't have been designed this well by accident, can it? It is my opinion, and this is somewhat ironic since I bought both brands from the same place, that the Myryad separates should be partnered with dryer sounding equipment. Gear with less bass and more air and snap. I think a rotel cd player would work rather well with the Z142 amp, and the Z114 player would work better with a RA1520 amp. I certainly would not use both Myryads together, unless I had very fast, punchy bookshelf speakers that needed a little extra bass. I'll continue this thread once I've tried the Z114 with a few other amps. Cheers!
  6. I bought a second hand Yamaha CD-N301 Natural sound CD player to replace my old faithful Yamaha carousel aka, anchor weight (which has just died) that I used upstairs. While most of today's purchases were analog in nature, this unit sounds pretty good for the money, so why not a digital thread along the lines of, dare I say, analogous to the ever popular What have you bought today? for people to post their digital purchases, such as CDs, FLAC, CD players etc? [or is that just rhetorical?]. While I have sort of checked to see if such a thread existed, I couldn't find on as such. I am sure admin etal. will correct/move/delete this if this is incorrect. PS the CD was in the tray when I connected it up to the system.
  7. Part of the story of my acquisition of the Krell KAV 300 can be found on the thread below, the rest of this thread continues on from where it ends. http://www.stereo.net.au/forums/index.php?/topic/58949-krell-kav-300-cd-player/#entry1033192 I was fairly excited Friday afternoon, and why shouldn't I be? I had a 'new' cd player with a serious rep all fixed and ready to go and no shortage of challenger players to put it up against, surely fun times would ensue. The first challenger (or 'comparison partner' if you prefer) was my old faithful, the Consonance cd120. I started out using the Burson Conductor as a pre and Bills Arion S250 for the power feeding to my Lenehan S2Rs via Redgum speaker cables. The differences were subtle, very subtle. So damn subtle in fact that was forced to change cables between the Burson and the Arion in an effort to hear more and that caused far more difference that I was hearing between the players (which didn't help at all). But the final death knell was sounded on this combination as I realized I didn't have a remote to use to switch from one player to the other, I had to be right in front of the gear rack to press the input button on the Conductor, so things had to change. Out went the Conductor and in went the little Myryad Z240. Any WTF's raised by that sentence? The explanation is simple, I'd spent the day previous carting around floorstander speakers and while I knew I should just up the ante straight to the Halcros, well..., the Halcros are just so damn heavy, and the Myryad isn't. So there you have it, laziness as a motivational factor should never be underestimated! So with the little Myryad performing pre duties I could relax back in my recliner and switch inputs via the remote at will... or could I? The Krell has this nifty little feature where you can program a play loop, you designate a start and finish via specific buttons on the remote and once you've done that it plays loop after loop until you tell it to stop. Not a problem I thought, since I never really planned to use such a function, but (and this is a big but) by pure coincidence that loop function is activated by the input change function of the Myryad remote. So, comfortable and frustrated is where I was (I seem to recall that laziness has placed me in this position in the past too) and with no meaningful results to speak of I was forced to man up and grunt and drag the Halcros into place. The final set up. There are one or two things that need to be said regarding this Krell too, and they don't necessarily have anything to do with sound quality. This cd player runs hotter than many amplifiers (and it remains hot in standby mode too, none of that power saving eco-friendliness to be found here) so anyone living south of the permafrost should note that this puppy does not want to live in an enclosed cabinet. When I first started I placed the cd120 on top of the Krell (so I could place them on the same shelf) but I was forced to move it to a shelf of its own when the cd120 started to stew in its own juice. Whatever the Krell is doing it definitely does it in class A. Looks like I'll have to split this post up, Sunday lunch is calling. I'll have to come back and edit in a couple of paragraphs later. Edit: Now that I'm far less hungry than before, time to continue. So last night, starting just after 8pm, I sat down and I compared, swapping back and forth from one player to another several times within each song and hitting the rewind button quite a few times. By 11pm I had worked my way through almost 10 songs (yep, 3 hours to get through 40 minutes of music, also half a pack of M&Ms, the remains of a packet of chips and at least a liter of Pepsi Max but none of those are really relevant to the task at hand) and was finally making some progress. The cd120 has a slight forwardness to the upper mids and a slight emphasis on impact that gives it a slightly more dynamic feel when compared to the Krell. This makes it, IMO, a player better suited to rock music. That more immediate, more dynamic feel extends to the vocals as well by the way, it doesn't really come into play on softer vocals but on strong ones the effect is certainly noticeable and while it could be argued that this effect is artificial it certainly doesn't sound artificial, it makes rock music just a touch more so. The Krell has a slightly more laid back, some would call it more natural, nature, it doesn't give the focus of the cd120 but it conveys a deeper sound stage and fills out the middle and decay of notes more effectively. The Krell also has a slightly lower volume (or weaker signal) than the cd120 (probably more correct to say that the cd120 has a slightly higher than standard output actually) an adjustment of about 1db seemed to level them but those different impact characteristics actually made it fairly difficult to set the volumes by ear. A good way to illustrate the difference between the two is, if the music contains a growling electric guitar then the cd120 will give you a 'Growl' effect, while the Krell will give you a 'groowwll' effect. I'm going to keep listening and I hope to pick up more differences of note but my initial findings are simple. The cd120 retails at about $1300 and the Krell (when it was new) retailed at about $3.5K. While I see the Krell being better at softer music I don't see it being worth the difference. Now that you can pick up a new cd120 for the same price as a 2nd hand Krell then the choice becomes a little harder, but not a lot harder. The Consonance for listening that is upbeat and dynamic and the Krell for music that is slower (or less forward), it's really as simple as that. And now we'll have to wait and see if a few more days of familiarization manages to change my mind. It has happened before.
  8. I thought I might warm up a bit prior to starting my "power amps" mission. Since I have failed to convince the boys at Burson to produce a cd player (I tried to talk them into it via email but I don't seem to have been sucessful) there is only one company (to my knowledge) in Oz that makes a cd player and that is Redgum. Or at least, they sort of make a cd player in that they make a DAC and plug in a CDROM into the same case, I have wondered how well that could work for a couple of years now, but, I need wonder no more. I spotted a 2nd hand RGcd5ENR over the new year and completely failed to restrain myself. It arrived today and after a brief panic over it acting all DOA I managed to open it up and change the fuse. Things improved greatly from that point. Before I get into the serious sound stuff I have to say that this RGcd5 looks just awesome, that high gloss redgum facia looks and feels like it is made of ceramic it is so smooth and cool to the touch. The steel body is powder coated in gloss black and looks almost as good as the front facia board. The insides don't appear to be anything fancy, 2 separate power supplies, one for the DAC and one for the CDROM, and then the DAC and the CDROM. There is certainly no room to hide any fancy circuitry. No remote, no screen, and only line outs, a digital out and a digital in (it is billed as a DAC with cd capabilities after all) complete the features. For the last week or so I have been listening to my good old cd120, through the Burson pre into the Halcro power amp and then through Little Blue Penguins Taranui speaker cables to the ML1s (also using LBPs Papakaio ICs, in this particular configuration I have found I prefer them to the Redgums) and thoroughly enjoying the result. So the $3k Redgum cd player is up against a $1.2k Chinese player, so if you go by budget the Redgum should walk all over the Consonance. If you go by chips it's Redgums Burr-Brown PCM1702 20 bit chips (one per chanel) vs the Consonances Crystal Devices 24/192, the 1702 is an old favourite but there is a bit of an emphasis on the "old" in this age of fast moving audio and the CS is a much more modern chip. The Consonance also has quite a reputation as sounding much better than its price point while the Redgum doesn't seem to have much of a reputation at all, it seems to be seen more as a curiosity than an actualy player (due to its odd CDROM based design almost certainly). So how do they sound? Well I have to say that I really had no idea what to expect prior to this afternoon, I knew I had a good player already and I knew that I was loving the sound I currently had, so, keeping all that in mind I can say without hesitation that the Redgum murders the Consonance several times over! The Redgum has several times the depth of body and level of harmony that the Consonance offers, the highs are much more full and clear and the bass is noticably deeper and tighter. More impact, vocals that just tickle the ear drums tantalizingly and a faster, more fluid mid range. There was so much more in the instrumentals that was pushed to the fore by the Redgum and without compromising the vocals in any way. This is one hell of a player! I lost count of the number of times shivers ran down my spine, this Redgum really produces the goods. Just for giggles, I set it up as a DAC using the Consonance as a transport and then wired in the Consonance to the next input on the pre and did a little A/B listening. The Redgun seemed to be louder than the Consonance so I pulled out the SPL meter, set it to max hold, and played a little music. The overal maximum level of the music was only 1.2db higher through the Redgum but there was a much higher average sound level through the Redgum, as if it was replacing all the standard musicians with much stronger, faster and more enthusiastic musicians. Some people talk about being able to tell the difference between DACs and how hard or easy it may be, well I can tell you that I think these two "DACs" are massively different and would be pretty easy to pick in a blind test. Now all I need is someone willing to turn the pre selector switch while I listen. I'll post some pics tomorrow, I'll even leave the top off the Redgum and the cage off the CDROM power supply, just for the curious. Cheers! Edit: My mistake, the Consonance cd120 DAC is a Cirrus Logic CS4396, not a Crystal Devices chip at all. Edit again: Pics added. Love that polished wood!!! The CDROM power supply is on top of the CDROM for good reason. After I changed the fuse (and what a bugger of a fuse it was to get to) and flipped the on switch, and it worked, I wasn't game to touch it again. I'll put it back together again, but I have to go fishing first. My feet are attention seeking primadonnas in many ways, they insist on being in at least one shot in every post. And a close up of the DAC board, looks simple doesn't it?

  24. Item: Cd Player Location: Southport, Gold Coast 4215 Price: $11500 Item Condition: 9/10 Reason for selling: Moving Overseas Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Bank Transfer Extra Info: Wadia S7i Cd Player with GNSC statement Upgrade - immaculate condition as new. Condition is used. I previously owned several Wadia players, the 850, 860 and861. In 2005 I came across a very talented man called Steve Huntly, owner of Great Northern Sound Company in the USA. This company (GNSC) performed extensive upgrade's to already expensive Wadia cd players. Having lived for a year with a standard 861, and then hearing an 861 with the "GNSC statement upgrade", I had no hesitation in handing over $13000. The level of improvement to my standard 861 was nothing short of spectacular. Wadia then in 2011 released this S7i model. Built from the ground up. Upon auditioning it, the S7i was a substantial improvement, even over my upgraded 861. I couldn't wait to hear the S7i with the statement upgrade done. So my brand new S71 unit was sent to GNSC where the extensive "statement upgrade" was conducted. I received this upgraded S7i in late 2011. I was astonished at the output of this upgraded S7i. This is the most amazing CD player, and no single box cd player compares to it at any price. I ordered it with all possible inputs and outputs, meaning you can use this as a DAC to stream audio also. This player has been cherished from new. (Photos are of the actual unit) It comes with the manual and all paperwork in the factory double boxing. It has been used only by myself, in a pet-free, child-free, smoke-free home. I purchased a second remote control at the time of purchase (pictured) which is brand new having only been opened to take this photo. This player will come with 2 remotes, one used and one brand new. I have just had a service done by the amazing ANDY and a new cd drawer belt was installed. It will now provide many more years of musical bliss. Shipping will be charged at the exact cost and must be tracked methods only, the freight price will vary depending on where it is travelling to. Email me directly if a quote is required, but will be around $150 Australia wide. Shipping to New Zealand via DHL will cost $250 door to door (insurance would be extra. I've never bothered as the factory packaging is so good, anyway buyers choice) Pick up for Australian residents is from the gold coast. This is the only "GNSC statement upgraded" Wadia S7i for sale in the world right now, and they rarely come up. I have priced it at $12,500, This S7i cost more than 3 times this amount with the ultimate statement upgrade. It was worth every cent of that then and it’s still worth every cent of that now. Please feel free to ask any questions Pictures:
