He's taking offers,
50k is the current offer for everything. He has load of new carts and other stuff he will include if you take everything

The kappas are 20k about in value, the extra are really good, loads of audio also included if you ask nicely :thumbs:

Boggles the mind. Price variations.

Different sellers.  After hearing his MacBook trounce the Aurender seller 1 just wanted rid of it quickly.

Wadia 2000 DAC. The original Wadia.
Price at R20k seems quite steep,
but this seems to be broadly in line with international prices.
I wouldn't pay more than maybe R5k for this, but that's me.

7-10k for dac.  The extra fibre  gubbin is worth  a little bit.
Was their finest and a lot rarer then x32 or x64

If you ever see a Wadia 9+10 for R5k, please let me know.
I get what you're saying though.

A 521 I would pay good money for though.

I think a 9 on red book would hold its own.  It was amaze balls then.
