K701 $200 SOLD SOLD SOLD paypal non CC or $210 via paypal CC, shipped UPS ins. Double Boxed
These are in near perfect conditon, the only wear is the pads are getting old, but still in very good condition and sounds great. Other that, I've been up and down them, and couldn't find a scratch. Non- smoker, no pets. Comes with original packaging and foam stand. If they are supposed to come with 3.5mm adapter, I never received one, but it's never been a problem, as I don't see them being powered by anything that would have one.
Fixed Zhaolu d2.5a! $130 SOLD SOLD SOLD! shipped ins US. This has less than 10 hours use, because I only got it to turn on once, and it's been sitting in my office for about 10 months wraped up in the original box. Turns out the powerpcb wasn't making a connection, so I jumped the points together. Works fine, sounds great! More info check

ATH A900's $120. No Box but comes with 1/4" adapter. Shipped, ins, conus, PAYPAL .First, these need new pads. The pleather started to peel, so I managed to peel most of it off, and made poor man's velours. I arguebly like them better this way, but I won't bs you and tell you they're better than Beyer pads. Replacement can be bought through Audiocubes for $40. But I tried my JVC X700 pads and they fit, and were the same thickness. JVC sells them for $11. Or you can upgrade to the plumper pads the x900's use and get replacements for $16.
I spotted about three, smaller than a pin head, pock marks on the cups. You can make them out on the photos... but squint. The only other thing is a small tear (pictured) in the rubber from the cup to the cord. I would have fixed this, but I don't have and heat shrink fat enough on hand.
Works great. This, IMO, is a good deal on what are still my favorite headphones unamped. Seriously, I sold my HD600's to keep these to use with my ipod and a porta corda II. Not saying they're better, just better for an entry level situation.




Meier Corda Cantante USB Amp/DAC $375SOLD SOLD SOLD This was purchased from Skylab, who got this from Jan to do this review.
Used lovingly for a year now. I've gone up and down it looking scratches and nick (hard considering it's brushed aluminum) and see none. Comes with original packaging including brochure. Double boxed, insured, PAYPAL non CC
Will take more pics upon request, but this is in great condition still. None smoker, no pets.
Will knock off a few bucks for bundle deals, so feel free to ask.
Can do more pics upon request. Reason for selling, I need to fund bills and other purchases.
NO trades. Check sig to feedback. To reiterate, ALL ITEMS WORK, and aside from the a900's are in either perfect, or near perfect condition.

May I ask why are you selling your Cantate? Didn't sound as expected or just looking for a new amp?

Thanks in advance. I'm waiting for mine to arrive home.

You'll be very happy, very soon! I got a year of solid service from mine, I'm just ready to upgrade to a more solid DAC.

I see. Thanks for answering! Good luck selling yours, and good luck finding a new DAC/AMP! IF I hadn't already bought my Cantate ID' seriously consider yours.

To the person who was e-mailing me, I trying to e-mail you back, twice now. To answer your question:
The cantante works great with my k701's. I'm sure other (more expensive and non DAC) amps may mate better, but for an entry level desktop combo, this one's tough to beat.
Also, this is the DAC/amp on the Meier's site. Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but unless Jan made revisions to this model in the last year (change opamps etc), nothing is different.
For future reference, please PM me, as my e-mail goes to my work account, and that may only get checked once a day, and I'm trying to keep up to date with my PM's. Thanks for the interest.
Still for sale though, and looking primarily for cash.
P.S. Sorry for all the bumps, I just wanted to make sure I responded to this guy, as he e-mailed me first, and has since sent a second message.

Cantante and K701 pending $$$.
A900 still available. I swear that's a good price for unamped cans. If my stable wasn't bloated I'd keep 'em , but Xmas presents need to be bought!
