  1. Sounds like u have found what u want then! I’ve not been a big fan of the LDA power supplies but a later model I use on a modded MDAC in the bedroom seems ok
  2. If ur looking for one of the best a Paul Hynes Dual Regulated SR7 is the one Uptone are also up there with HDPlex and the Custom Hifi Cables Then there’s SBooster, Swagman, Teradak, Teddy Pardo, Plixr and others - lots to choose from and all better than the ifi

  5. Awesome unit! With one of the very best control apps out there for streaming
  6. I’ve heard one of these in some serious systems, I know 3/4 people that own one and a very close friend of mine has two, just awesome pieces of kit, I only really bought it for the DAC as it’s so good, first CD Player I’ve owned in years!
  7. Hi, it’s a Bamboo Atacama 60/40 Evoque Special Edition. It’s in the medium finish and the bottom grub screws which go to the spikes were changed out for black ones and the discs on the floor are SSC Matchpoint 300
  8. I bought these a good few months back now from NuNu Distribution but in the meantime I have got a new rack that requires more specific isolation due to design and have recommended finite elements, nor dots or still points so I’m currently experimenting there. i used these for a couple weeks when I had my previous rack and really liked what they did, I bought quite a lot of them in the end after testing and am still using a few sets elsewhere, including on the base of my new rack. Set of 4 - SSC Magicpoint 100 black - felt pad - retail £60 per individual foot - £100 the set Set of 4 - SSC Magicpoint 300 silver/black - spike dimple - retail £60 per individual foot - £100 the set Can be used with spikes or directly indernequipment 2 x Sets of 3 - SSC Liftpoint 1.6 silver (height adjustable) - retail £45 per individual foot - £65 each set of 3 Come with thread adapters but are designed to be used directly under equipment too If u would like to buy the lot I’ll do them for £275 (full price £740), other than that prices are as stated Postage is extra unless u buy the lot Magicpoint 100 Liftpoint 1.6 Magicpoint 300
  9. The reason that the Lindemann is classified by many as a CD/Transport/DAC is due to its separated individually isolated parts. This is a fully fledged and incredible sounding DAC, with a separate CD Transport, the unit has digital outputs too, to enable it as a transport, or simply put a disk in its lovely mechanism and it becomes a CD Player - very very flexible. The 825 has a high quality outboard power supply in order to remove any interference into the delicate signal path and is connected by a decent length umbilical allowing for easy placement. Its fully balanced or single ended out, has multiple digital inputs, including Lindemann latest revision of their USB interface and has specially designed isolation feet, not just the generic cheap crap u get on some high end units! I have the original packaging, manuals, discs, cables and cable tidy thing too. Soundwise, well it’s pretty exceptional, there’s a ton of sparkling reviews around the web, what I enjoyed about it tho was its rhythm, detail and presence, it really is a fantastic piece of kit. I only stream, so don’t need a CD Player or Transport and I’m looking to upgrade again so need to raise some funds for the next front end combo RRP - £6,950 at Audio Emotion https://www.audioemotion.co.uk/lindemann-825-high-definition-disc-player-685-p.asp Will sell for £2,750 - no buyers remorse included! I can see one on eBay currently for £3,600 Postage is an option, so contact me to discuss
  10. I bought this new from DiDiT just before it was first released to replace the standard 212 I had before. It is a clear upgrade over the previous version and was better than a Hugo TT2 I had on demo also. Although it only has XLR outputs, the output is changeable in the menu from the menu from balanced to single ended mode and either some XLR to rca adapters or an XLR to rca cable can be used, I have done exactly this when using it with different amps and it works perfectly. There are some marks around the rear where the case has been caught reaching around plugging in cables I don’t have the original box, I was never given one on purchase as I bought it just before release but it is full spec, actually it went back to DiDiT a year ago for some new software upgrades and at the same time they upgraded some capacitors to the latest spec. I have the remote and the HDMI I2s adapter which allows the two forms of pin configuration for I2s to be utilised It is an incredibly resolving, fast and tonally well balanced unit, with a fantastic headphone amplifier Lots of glowing reviews and I know that there has been an industry professional blind test conducted respectfully against various DACs from Chord, Esoteric and DCS with the concencous being a majority preferring the DiDiT This is a serious DAC RRP £3800 - will sell for £1750
