  1. Further Information: Bought from an authorized QED dealer in the UK about 3 years ago Current Price for 0.6m is $220 From the manufacture’s website: About the QED Reference Digital Audio Cable The QED Reference Digital Audio 40 delivers an extremely high standard for Digital Coaxial S/PDIF signals. It is a definite winner for QED fans and the use of patented Digiloc connectors will reassure you of not only a good plug, but also many years of happy listening. Reference Digital Audio 40 utilises a carefully engineered geometry to achieve the precise characteristic impedance required for the maximum transfer of S/PDIF signals. Silver plated conductors deliver a low resistance path for high frequencies and QED "Digiloc" plugs more closely match the cable's characteristic impedance, reducing return loss by up to 1dB when compared to conventional RCA plugs. This ensures optimal signal transfer and improved micro-timing of the audio signal. Just Listen: Silver plated signal carriers, effective high quality shielding and impedance matched cordage and plugs all combine to create audible sonic improvements when compared to the competition Ultra Low Jitter: Through the use of factory controlled geometry and low permittivity foamed polyethylene dielectrics, Reference Digital Audio 40 maintains the correct characteristic impedance to match the transmission line between digital source and sink precisely. This makes for a very low jitter signal transfer which, listening tests have shown, leads to clearly audible sonic improvements. Jitter is the undesired deviation from true periodicity of an assumed periodic signal in electronics and telecommunications, often in relation to a reference clock source. A cable displaying ultra low jitter has been measured at typically 30ps. 75 Ohm Impedance Matched Digiloc RCA Plugs: Domestic S/PDIF interfaces use the traditional RCA phono connector which is not impedance matched to the 75 Ohm transmission line. This causes measurable insertion loss and an increase in jitter due to signal reflections at the connector boundaries. The all new Digiloc RCA plugs are more closely impedance matched than ever before and measurements have shown, reduce insertion loss by up to 1.2 dB compared to ordinary RCA plugs. Triple Layer Electromagnetic Shielding: A dual layer closely woven 99.999% OFC shield braid and aluminium mylar wrap with 100% coverage comprise a triple layer electromagnetic shield coaxially spaced around the central signal carrier within a foamed polyethylene dielectric. This ensures that interference signals induced by nearby high current noise sources do not contribute to higher signal jitter than would otherwise be the case. By the same token the shielding prevents unwanted voltage induced interference escaping the cable which might affect nearby analogue signal carriers.
  2. Further Information: Needs no intro, great digital interconnect. I used this between Bluesound node and DAC
  3. Hi all, I am considering expanding my current system to include a stereo power amplifier and compatible bookshelf hi-fi speakers. My current system is essentially a mix of hi-fi & digital components both of which are monitored from the digital output stage. System components: Technics SL-1200 MK2 turntable Jelco TK-850S tonearm Nagaoka MP-200 phono cartridge/stylus Graham Slee Reflex M phono pre-amplifier RME Fireface 800 Coleman Audio M3PH MK2 monitor controller Dorrough 40-C2 loudness monitors Studio monitors (KRK Rokit 8 G2) The Coleman Audio unit is capable of hosting 4x stereo XLR inputs, and can be switched to 3x stereo outputs. It has a 47 position stepped level control that tracks to ±.05dB, and is completely passive in its design. Ideally, I was hoping to split the output stage from the phono pre-amplifier and split one stereo output direct into the RME unit, and the second stereo output direct into an available Coleman audio input, then switch outputs between the digital and analogue systems. I have access to two Radial LX-3 units, which are line level splitters; 1x mono input (balanced or un-balanced) to 3x mono outputs (2x Jensen transformer isolated, 1x direct output). I have utilised these in the past to perform similar duties with my system and it worked flawlessly. However, upon recent testing I ran into a capacitive coupling issue, which was confirmed by both the manufacturer of the phono stage and the Radial units. It was due to the cable termination on the TRS connector and the interfacing with the LX-3 unit. The phono stage outputs are RCA connectors, so unless I attempt to re-solder the cables TRS connector so this signal flow can be achieved, I’m somewhat at a loss as to how I can split the signal of the phono stage while avoiding the capacitive coupling issue. Follow up question; as the Coleman Audio unit utilises balanced I/O connections and if I was to incorporate a stereo power amplifier with balanced XLR inputs, would the monitor controller be sufficient to drive signal into the stereo power amplifier? Thanks for the read.
  4. I've been doing some house cleaning - and gone through my cable box and found this one. It is a customised cable based on the good performing TEAC 75ohm digital cable which came with my TEAC VRDS 10 back in the day. I have converted one end to BNC by using an audiophile brand Coax connector (Vampire). I am hoping it can find a new home as it is handy having the quality BNC connection rather than a cheap RCA/BNC adapter. Shipping is included in the price.
  5. Further information: solid silver conductor and will be equivalent to the diamond in the current range although with thinner gauge conductor. Bought locally from Len Wallis in lane cove.

  10. I recently moved onto Linn DSM and judging by its performance, I no longer require the SOtm switch. This is one unit that certainly made an audible improvemnet amongst my various units in the audio chain and I certainly feel this is far superior to many other switches that I had tried. Do note that this is indeed the sCLK 9V version with external Master Clock connectivity using BNC (50 Ohms/) but ordered with "aluminium fascia" to match the rest of my units.(normally sCLK is supplied with black fascia) Introduce this into your digital signal path - you will hear the improvment. I will include shipping and for the genuine buyer - happy to be a bit flexibile within reasonable limits on the asking price. if PayPal, additional 4.1% would apply.
  11. Further Information: Selling on behalf of a close friend. Close-to-mint condition digital amp bought in Sep 2019 from Sound Reference in Melbourne, which includes a phono stage and remote control. There is one small mark on the back which can't be wiped off (see pic). Otherwise presents and operates as new. Unable to audition as the speakers are already sold!

  12. Hi everyone... I have been advised by ACMA and broadcasters that 64Kbit/s DAB+ is an improvement over FM and should sound fantastic... well... yeah.. sure... So what bit-rates are used around the world? Is 64Kbit/s as high as we can reasonably expect Australian digital radio to ever get? It's ok for headphones and background, but certainly not for lounge speakers or even in a car at a solid volume.
  13. This is a complete high end cinema ready for purchase. It has only been turned on a few times and everything is in excellent condition. As a result of a marriage ending, I'm forced to sell everything. I believe this is a very good opportunity for someone to pick up high end quality brands at a fraction of the as new price. I am located in Melbourne, Australia. Also, given the weight and lack of boxes for a lot of the gear, local pickup would be preferred. If you are able to supply a courier to box everything and you take responsibility, then we can work something out. This is an honest and serious sale. I'm parting with a dream cinema that was never realised, I just hope you have better luck with it. Not looking for offers, price is fair and firm. All equipment is black, with Meridian finished in Piano Black. 4 of the 5 DSP speakers are coaxial connection with 1 having the newer ethernet. Will supply photos and serial numbers for all gear to serious buyers. Price as new in excess of $80,000. Priced for sale at $25,000 AUD. Thanks for looking.
  14. After Darwin switches off analog TV on July 30, there are no more switch offs until December 3 & 10, where Sydney, Melbourne and Remote Central & Eastern Australia switch off analog TV for the last time. Should the shutdown be brought forward, e.g. from December 3 & 10 to September 3 & 10 or even August 6 & 13? Of course, this would have to be subject to consultation.

  23. So after reading through a number of threads on music servers, dacs, digital amps etc. I've been thinking that my Cambridge Audio amplifier (A300) is probably going to be replaced in the not too distant future with something like a QLS QA100 digital amplifier. That being the case, I also wanted a simple, quiet music player to stream FLAC files to the amp. Not being afraid of Linux (I've had Linux PC's in the past) and reading about the Raspberry Pi with the Raspbyfi distro, I thought what the hell, it's a nice cheap (and pleasantly geeky) idea with lots of potential. So I bit the bullet and ordered one, and a Behringer DAC as well (given this is a temporary solution, couldn't justify even $120 on a good DAC only to make it obsolete with the next amp purchase). Got the Raspberry Pi, hooked it up to the TV (it has an HDMI port), popped the SD card in, fired it up and...... Nothing. So a little googling later, found that the HDMI output is pretty low powered, you may need to force the handshake. Also, it turns out that the latest batch of Raspberry's have a different RAM which some distros don't get along well with. Interestingly, Raspbyfi has now evolved into a multi platform app/distro called "Volumio". But it looks like they still haven't dealt with the new RAM issues, so looking into that, we decided to stick with Raspbyfi. My wife cut and pasted some code from other distros to get the RAM talking, and soon had the HDMI sorted as well. I can post links if anyone's interested. So after mowing the lawn, I came into the house to find a happily lit up Raspberry Pi. Fabulous! Ethernet's plugged in, so type in the URL and away I go.... Or not... Okay, fine, check the ip address from the modem/router thingy, type in the numbers on my smartphone browser and BINGO! up it comes, finds the USB stick with music on it, and there's Louis inviting me over to Duke's Place in luverly stereo! And the Pi doesn't need any other interface. Such a neat digital solution, for $50! I'm not particularly wrapt with the interface, but fortunately, MPDroid is a great ap that seamlessly connected with the little Pi - no troubles there at all - and now I've got a silent little box sitting there providing music to my system. It's quieter than my DVD player! Actually, it's quieter, literally than the DVD player - I have found I need to up the volume on my amp a little more. I guess the Behringer doesn't put out much voltage on its RCA's... Nontheless, sound quality is actually quite good - I've only really spent one night listening to it, and not really critically at that, but given the DAC is the weak point in this current setup, I'm really, really pleased with the solution. It's very neat, very easy, and I'm quite chuffed with the whole thing. Photos to follow...
