    Scammers on E Bay

    Lol, can only go on the facts only gave one, never know with some of the old timers on the forum get lost in all the paypal rules The Europeans are quite insistent on PayPal, I've risked it a few times before with a few DAC's, thankfully it turned out ok...but it was only because I really needed the money at the time otherwise I would not have. I think if they arent trusting enough when pointed to forum profiles and introduction to people you've had dealings with, then they want their cake and munch it down whole, so they can buy from their own country. Parcel2Go's exclusion list pretty much excludes everything Hifi wise other than a its a definite no pay out if anything happens.

    Perfectly fine to do as long as he pays with Bank Transfer first!

    Cartridge upgrade, 2M Black, Hana SL?

    I love my Hana SL. The Ortofon Black is a nice cartridge but lacks any sort of soul. It was good sounding but dull, lifeless. I changed it in a week. I see the Hana SL like an MC version of a Nagaoka MP500, so if you like thick warm , detailed woody sound, it will be a great one for you. It far exceeds a 2M Black without doubt.

    DAC is important, but does the digital source matter?

    Keithy is ginger? That explains so much!

    You dont need to edit your eBay advertisement at all. However, you do need to set a price on here.

    DAC Off Part 2: Qutest vs RME ADI-2 DAC

    Shall we all ring Keithey for a test unit tomorrow? then we can all compare notes. Personally I want to test his £8400 DAC in comparison, so i'll get one of those as well.

    DAC Off Part 2: Qutest vs RME ADI-2 DAC

    Buy it from Keith, try it out then return it under Consumer Contract Regs if its crap. You have legally 14 days to return it if you dont like it...but Juno records seem the cheapest at the moment and they always give you even more off if you call them and haggle.

    I almost fell asleep half way through, so decided to listen to some music instead. Was a much better use of life hours than reading that waffle.

    Searching for a rich vinyl like sound in digital music

    How do you define the original recording? Curious, Have you been in many bands? play many instruments? recording any songs/albums?
