  1. I’ve been powering some KEF LS50s with a hybrid integrated amp for a year or so now and have been generally happy with the combination. Unfortunately the amp passed away recently so I’m looking for a replacement. I’ve been using a vintage Hitachi (20 WPC) to keep the music flowing while I find a replacement and have been surprised at how the KEFs have enjoyed the vintage sound. This started me looking at something like a refurbished Sansui 717 which I haven’t ruled out (thanks for your help @pete_mac). At the other end of the spectrum I’ve always been interested in the Wyred 4 Sounds STI-500. While I’ve been uncertain about the Class D thing generally, admittedly without any experience or technical understanding, I like almost everything I’ve read on how the amp apparently performs. One concern is that the combination may be too revealing. The other is the KEFs are low efficiency (85 dB) with minimum impedance of 3.2 ohms so seem to prefer amplication with a decent amount of current - I don't really understand where Class D fits in terms of power (current) vs power (output). Here are a couple of review links: http://www.positive-feedback.com/Issue48/wyred.htm http://www.stereotimes.com/amp020910.shtml http://www.6moons.com/audioreviews/wyred3/sti.html Does anyone have any experience with W4S integrated amps (or other comparable Class D amps) they can share. If anyone in the Gold Coast / Brisbane / F North NSW area has one I could listen to that would be even better. All opinions / recommendations welcome. I listen to 60 / 40 split of flac files and vinyl. Digital via SBT (Teddy PSU) > Synchromesh > Teddydac. I’d be looking at a new phono stage < $1,000 so options open here. Room is 7 x 8 m open living and I listen at low - moderate volumes. Thanks Adam
  2. Item: Wyred 4 Sound DAC-1 with femto clock upgrade Location: Sth Gold Coast Price: $600 (incl. delivery within metropolitan Australia - would also help out if you are further afield). The current RRP for the DAC-1 in Australia without the upgraded clock is $1250. The only difference being the higher resolution capability of the USB module in the current productions. Item Condition: Excellent. Not a mark on it. Reason for selling: Having a change Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal (+ any fees), COD Only Extra Info: DAC was purchased new from Deep Hz Audio in November 2015 with the femto clock upgrade which cost an additional $275. I decided on the DAC-1 with upgrade over the DAC-2 as I didn't need the pre-amp or other features and by all accounts SQ is pretty close between the two. The USB on this unit is limited to 24/96 but goes higher over coaxial (and toslink I assume). I've really enjoyed this DAC but thought I would have a change. Here is the W4S link including features and specification. This is for the current V2 model although the features list seems identical other than higher resolution over USB. Here are the Positive Feedback review and 6 Moons review of the DAC-1. The latter includes some comparisons with other DACs including PS Audio. There is more info out there on the DAC-2 which will give you a good idea of performance. This link explains the differences between DAC-1 and DAC-2.

  4. Item: W4S STP-SE Pre-Amplifier with HT Bypass (Black) Location: Sydney Price: $1100 Item Condition: Used - Excellent Condition see Photos Reason for selling: Upgrade/ NLR Payment Method: Pickup - Cash, Paypal (as a friend or +fees), COD Only Extra Info: Purchased this Pre from @scumbag. Has been an excellent addition to my system and was a real keeper - however I have simplified my setup and moved away from separates. Lots of great reviews of this unit online and on the forums. Instead of trying to explain the magic myself, refer to the following from previous listing I purchased from: The unit will come with power lead, remote, manual and double boxed. I also bought a 2nd remote from Deep HZ (brand new & not used). The surface of the original remote had become slightly sticky but completely functional. Both remotes included. Able to ship interstate at buyers expense and risk; rest assured it will be well packed. Links to some reviews and features from the W4S website: http://www.stereotimes.com/amp082912.shtml FEATURES: Input / Output wiring upgraded to Kimber Tcss wire 2nd stage filtering caps (4-22,000uf caps) are upgraded to the Wyred 4 Sound Low ESR "SUPER CAP" designed for power supplies Vacuum Fluorescent Display (VFD) Optical rotary encoder (volume knob) Fully functional remote control 12V DC Trigger input (to automatically activate HT Bypass mode) Two - 12V DC Trigger outputs Home Theater bypass (customizable for any input, also DC Trigger input selected) Balance control Absolute phase control (0°/180°) - an interesting experience - it's amazing how changing the absolute phase effects the sound. Efficient (no heat) Tripple-ripple reduction circuit contains 164,560uF of capacitance Extremely low noise floor Fully balanced input to output Buffered passive/active design Automatically switched in Line Stage (when more volume is needed) Discrete volume control using dale RN55d resistors Unbalanced to Balanced conversion (when RCA input selected and XLR outputs are being used) Idle power consumption = 15w Rugged construction ½” Machined and Anodised front panels 60kohm input impedance 3 sets of gold plated unbalanced (RCA) inputs 2Â sets of gold plated unbalanced (RCA) outputs 2 sets of Neutrik Balanced (XLR) inputs 2 sets of Neutrik Balanced (XLR) outputs Factory Selectable mains 115/230VAC Compact size (17”W x 4”H x 13”D) 22lbs.

Might seperate if they dont sell together. Pictures:
  6. Item: Schiit Gungnir Multibit DAC Price Range: Open to offers. Item Condition: New or Used Extra Info: Hoping someone is looking to upgrade, or wanting a change. I like the reviews and am looking to try something different to my W4S Sabre DAC. The W4S I have is a DAC-1 purchased new from Deep Hz Audio about 12 months old with Femto clock upgrade if a swap plus cash was of interest. A general EOI for the W4S going out to others viewing the thread.
