  1. I am moving and selling everything.Please find a bundle of 5 male 2 female Furutech F1-11-N1 (G) plugs.They were never used. They were removed from expensive cables because I upgraded to Furutech F1-28 (G). F1-28(G) boxes are in the photo, and I believe you can see one of the cables with the F1-28 plug in the background.To make a matched set, I've added three high quality, but less expensive, female plugs that were also taken from the expensive cables. (They were used on their high gauge cables.)The Furutech F11-N1 (G) costs about $50 when new. I'm selling the lot, including the three other females, for $120.
  2. Here is more info: Below is the SOtM checkout page for the switch. The switch is $800. If you add an internal clock it's $1700, and the enhanced circuitry makes the total $1900. That is the model I purchased and am selling. It has been a big hit for them and it's currently out of stock. The enhanced circuitry includes: 7NUOPCC internal silver wires, EVOX capacitors, and eABS 200. https://sotm-usa.com/products/snh-10g
  3. Hi Michel, please send me a private note and we can discuss possibilities.
  4. For sale is a factory DX3, not an upgrade. It has the V4X circuitry, the latest updates and a 1TB hard drive. I'm the original owner. The unit is about 18 months old and was a tremendous improvement over the Roon server I was previously using.Antipodes products have a life, a presence that is missing elsewhere. I liked it so much, I upgraded to the CX + EX solution a few weeks ago (also listed) only to learn I'll be moving. It's in perfect condition. The unit cost $7800 when new 18 months ago and I'm selling it for a very aggressive $2900. The buyer pays for shipping and PayPal. It has the original box and packaging. It's a Stereophile A+ component and widely praised elsewhere.
  5. I'm moving from NY to Seattle and I'm selling everything. Here's a 1 month old SOtM network switch with the additional clock and enhanced circuitry. The price new is $1900 and I'm selling a month old unit for $1560. One of the two pictured has already been sold. When connected to my system (I used the SOtM recommended dual switch configuration they recommend) it brought a deepened bass, a more relaxed vocal and an overall analog warmth. I found this review very helpful https://audiobacon.net/2019/04/05/sotm-snh-10g-audiophile-ethernet-switch-review/2/ I am also selling the SOtM sps-500 power supply with Y connector cable ($670 new, $580), (4) .75m dCBL Cat 7 cables ($400 new, $350), (3) ISO-Cat6 LAN filter ($350 new, $300). All are 1 month old.
  6. I don't seem to be able to edit this post...unsure why. They price was a typo and should say $3500. Also wanted to add this is a Sterephile A+ component. that sounds better since the review due to the new FPGA releases. The latest, Windom is fantastic.
  7. I bought an Antipodes CX+EX two weeks ago only to learn I'm moving to Seattle and need to sell everything. The units have been taken out of the box and tested but barely used. In fact, the registration cards haven't been completed. List prices is appx $10,800. I'm selling them for $8300. My move is your benefit. I also ordered the P1 and P2 bases that have yet to be received. I will sell those brand new, unopened as well if you're interested. As you might know, this is considered the state of the art music server, improving and replacing the Stereophile A+ DX3. I will also be selling 2 PS Audio DirectStream DACs, an Antipodes DX3, a pair of ATC SCM 20 active speakers, an ATC SCA2 preamp, and a number of other components including audience power conditioners and SOtM network switches and cables. https://www.hifi-advice.com/blog/review/digital-reviews/network-player-reviews/antipodes-cx-ex-part1/ Buyer pays shipping and PayPal fees.
  8. I'm moving from NY to Seattle and selling everything, The goal is to not require a mover and create a system from scratch once I'm there. This PS Audio Directstream DAC is appx 2.5 years old, in perfect condition with all the latest updates. I've owned Bricasiti M1, Mytek Manhattan II, Chord DAVE and 2Qute, and it's smooth analog sound is by far my favorite. So much so, I own a second one in white for my other system (about 1.5 years old) which I'll list separately. Each are $3950. Original box, materials, remote and manual. Buyer pays shipping and PayPal fees.
  9. I just changed the connection between my Antipodes DX3 server and PS Audio Directstream from USB to Ethernet in order to take advantage of the Bridge II's MQA. So I no longer need two excellent condition premium USB cables: (1) Excellent condition 1.5 meter dual end Audience AU24 SE. The dual ends separate power from data, improving resolution. List is $1050. Selling for $525. Comes in original box with paperwork and sealed tube of DeoxIT de-oxidizer. Great review from the Absolute Sound, which considers this a no-compromise analog sounding cable. https://www.theabsolutesound.com/articles/audience-au24-se-usb-cable/ 2) Excellent condition 4 foot WyWires Platinum USB. List is $899. selling for $450. Cable personally recommended to me by Ben Zwickel of Mojo Audio as the best USB cable he's heard and what he uses to demo his equipment at shows. Balanced, exciting life-like mid-range and vocals. There aren't a lot of reviews of the WyWires USB cables on the web. (I wouldn't have bought it without Ben's recommendation. After all, he does know a bit about servers and DACs). But found this. http://av2day.com/2013/11/my-experience-with-wywires-part-i/ "Then I connected the WyWires USB cable to the Wyred 4 Sound DAC2 and I regretted it within 20 seconds – it knocked out my reference USB cable (which I had just bought!). Immediately I noticed better separation overall and more details in the bass region. I felt so flabbergasted that I actually did A-B testing with my reference USB cable several times just to make sure my initial impressions were not wrong. In the end, I noted that my reference USB cable could match the WyWires only in midrange neutrality. The WyWires USB cable was clearly better in the bass and treble regions." I used and loved them both.
  10. Hi, thanks for your interest. I sent you a private email and we can work through the details. If you didnt receive it, please send me one or write me at [email protected]
  11. Mint condition 2 meter Starlight Cat 8 Ethernet Cable in original box with end clips. $270 new, selling for $190. Considered the best value in Ethernet cables, see the reviews. Dynamic, with deep controlled bass. If you're connecting components via Ethernet (e.g., server to streamer) a good Ethernet cable is essential. Selling because I'm upgrading to the platinum. Reviews https://www.audiostream.com/content/wireworld-starlight-cat8-ethernet-cable The Starlight CAT8 is very different sounding Ethernet cable when compared to my AudioQuest Diamond or Vodka Ethernet cables. The Starlight CAT8 is more extended sounding at the high and low end. This cable has a bit of midrange presence that I liked and didn’t find to be annoying in terms of brightness. The retrieval of high-end detail is outstanding. The midbass of the Starlight CAT8 is very controlled as is the low end. Dynamic contrasts, both micro and macro, are beautifully rendered and very easy to hear. The Audioquest Diamond and Vodka have smoothness at the high end that some, no doubt, will prefer. But I find the Starlight CAT8 to be the more revealing cable. The soundstage rendered by the Starlight CAT8 is the largest I have heard extending far beyond the lateral borders of my speakers. There is also very good depth reproduction if captured on the recording. The Starlight CAT8 reminded me sonically of what I heard when I reviewed the Platinum Starlight 7 USB 2.0 Cable. If you like this USB cable, I suspect that you will love the Starlight CAT8. Incidentally, for those of you that feel that there are no differences between Ethernet cables, I did some comparisons with a CAT6 Belden Ethernet cable and the Starlight CAT8. The Starlight CAT8 trounced the Belden in terms of sound quality. https://forum.psaudio.com/t/ethernet-cables-yes-im-going-there-i-was-a-skeptic-and-i-was-wrong/4393 ...Back and forth and back and forth… I would rank the Wireworld as a distant winner, this was a night and day difference that no one can miss. Smooth highs, nice body, a new full midrange that was previously lacking, and a live sound! 2nd is a draw between the $20 Belden and the $365 Cardas… these are different but I’m not sure which is better. Last is the Vodka which was a music killer for me… analytical way too agressive with the highs… sibilance off the charts. I don’t know why the WW sounds so different. It could be the Cat8 but I’m also suspecting the non-twisted geometry and use of triple shielding. They say it reduces skew in the signal. Who knows, I just know this is the equivalent as a power cable change or greater to my ears in my system going with the Wireworld. The difference between the Cardas and Belden was maybe much more subtle… and the AQ was awful which I was not expecting.
  12. Mint Mytek Manhattan ll. 6 months old, original everything, new remote in box. $4300 obo True MQA, headphone amp, latest firmware. Incredible punch. Used it with an Antipodes DX3. Paired with Tidal, the MQA is breathtaking. Stereophile A+. https://www.stereophile.com/content/mytek-hifi-manhattan-ii-da-preamplifier-headphone-amplifier Widely considered one of the best DACs available, many feel on par or better than DACs twice the price. Great pre-amp, choice of analog and digital, and world-class headphone amp. Incredible punch and presence. I've compared it to Bricasti M1, Auralic Vega, CHORD DAVE, and CHORD 2Qute. Preferred it to all. Selling because of a move. Other components and cables available: ATC CA1 pre-amp Audience SE24 2-headed 6ft USB Antipodes DX Telluirum cables Buyer pays any payment/PayPal fees.
  13. Hi I’m interested in the Diamond Ethernet. Please contact me.
