    I'm clearing out some items to make room for the new. Sale is open to friends and contributors. Price includes cost of shipping (CONUS only).

    Mjölnir Audio Pure Bipolar
    This is Spritzer's/Birgir's take on the SuSy Dynalo MK2. It's some of the best solid-state amplification I've ever heard. This is the same basic circuit that is receiving rave reviews in the Headamp GS-X Mini. In fact, I'm selling the Pure Bipolar because I bought a GS-X Mini. My primary headphones (Audio Zenith PMx2) are very sensitive and pair better with the GS-X Mini, which has slightly less power and lower gain; that's the only reason I'm selling.

    Although the amp only has XLR inputs, it accepts single-ended signals by using RCA-to-XLR adaptors. The supersymmetry circuit converts single-ended signals to balanced without any extra circuitry. I'll include a pair of adaptors at no extra charge.

    The amp has a brand-new volume pot with about five hours on it.

    $1150 net $1075 net SOLD

    Sennheiser HD650
    This is the newer version with silver grilles. I will include two cables: the standard cable with 1/4" jack, and the standard cable determinate with Neutrik 4-pin XLR. Everything is in tip-top shape.
    $250 net SOLD

    Lynx E22 with Sonnet Echo Express SE1 chassis
    This sound card has helped to provide some of the best damned digital music of my life. I'm selling it because I'm planning to build my system around a Raspberry Pi and PI2AES. I'm hoping that I don't regret this decision. With the chassis, you'll have everything you need to get the party started. I'll include a 3 meter white Thunderbolt cable at no extra charge.
    $550 net $475 net NO LONGER FOR SALE

    Headamp Pico Power
    This nice little amp only has about five hours on it. Shortly after I bought it, I purchased the Sony NW-ZX2, so I no longer needed the Pico. I will also include a nice 6" cable with 1/8" jacks on either side that I had custom-made by Blue Jeans Cable.
    $225 net SOLD

    Beats Solo 3 Wireless
    Tyll was right when he said that the range and convenience of these headphones are fantastic. They have great battery life and fold up into a small footprint. These are ideal for working around the house when sonic fidelity is not your number one concern.
    $100 net $50 net

    Forza Claire HPC MK2 cable
    The cable is 1.2 meters in length in a semi-transparent black finish. The cable is terminated on both ends with 3.5mm TRRS connectors.
    $75 net $50 net SOLD

    Let me know if you'd like pictures of the other items. Thanks for looking!

    Can the Mjolnir be switched to 230v?

    Would you consider shipping to Spain?

    Thanks!

    I already spoke with @Rthomas personally, but in case anybody else is wondering, the unit can easily be switched to 230V.

    I will also consider shipping outside CONUS, but I will need to increase the price to cover shipping costs.

    Wow great deal. If I was in the market for an amp, this would be the one.

    I would love to keep the Pure Bipolar, HD650, and E22 in the SBAF community.

    Alas, I'll post these items on Head-Fi soon, probably by the end of the week.

    I posted the remaining items on Head-FI, with price increases on the Pure Bipolar and Lynx E22. The prices remain the same here. I would love to keep the amp and the E22 in the SBAF community.

    I built the mini version which I found to be excellent. The difference is that my version uses an SMPS + low noise regulators while this one uses the excellent GRLV.

    This is a good buy

    Thanks for the plug, @Cspirou!

    The GRLV is amazing. I’ve heard it in the Pure Bipolar and GS-X Mini, and in both cases, it’s dead quiet.

    I once paid full price for the GS-X mk2, and I deeply regretted the decision. I found the amp to be harsh and clinical in its presentation. The Pure Bipolar and GS-X Mini are a different story. These newer amps have a touch of warmth to them. I don’t know if it’s the supersymmetry circuit in particular, but I’ll say that the overall sound is consistent with the Pass Labs X2.5 preamp I own, which also has the supersymmetry circuit.

    Took nerves of steel not buying the pico power. I don't need one. At all. But every time one comes up on the used market, it calls to me... I can now unwatch this thread in peace. Best of luck with the rest of your sale!

    Hello,

    Is your Lynx E22 still available ? Would you sell it without the Sonnet chassis ? If so, how much would you sell it please ?

    Regards.

    Sure, I fully understand for the sale (while I'm still interested), and I repaired my mistake taking time to introduce me and read the forum rules and its state of mind.
    I look forward to better understand your philosophy and hope to keep up with the high level of discussions. My knowledge in high end gears is pretty simple but as a sound engineer I do have few analysis skills so I may be able to debate.

    Sorry if my english is not the most accurate :)

    Regards,
    Phil
