    Just some stuff I had laying around this time, but figured I'd see if ya'll could use it first. Prices include shipping for Friends/Contributors. Pics on demand - a few added for the things that are most out of the ordinary.

    SOLD - Acopian Linear Power Supply VA28MT300R - $80 - 7/10 condition, no box. This was purchased for a Cavalli Tube Hybrid and made an immensely obvious benefit across the board, but particularly in the bass region. I feel like this is well worth the price:performance ratio. I will include my DIY cabling supplies if you're willing to understand that they are DIY cabling supplies. This oversized for the task (it's rated for 3a@28v vs 1.25a@28v for the CTH).

    SOLD - JVC x Drop FDX1 - $115 - 9/10 condition, missing box. Purchased in in January from @shotgunshane in great condition, used for a couple of hours but in the end, it's yet another almost-but-not-there on fitment for my (apparently really weird) ear canals. Will start at the price he and I ended up at. Sound is a bargain at this price, if it fits you. Original thread/pics: https://www.superbestaudiofriends.org/index.php?threads/fs-drop-fdx1.12994/

    SOLD - Hifiberry Digi+ Pro, Steel Case, and Raspberry Pi 3 - $50 - 9/10 condition, no boxes. In great shape, just missing some feet - I can find some if you want, or you can add your own. Works really well, has clean optical and coax outputs, purchased all of it in May 2017, and was really happy with it - just doesn't suit my main use cases any more. No SD card or power supply included. More info here: https://www.hifiberry.com/blog/hifiberry-digi-pro-our-most-advanced-digital-audio-interface/

    GONE - Volbox Mini - $shipping - 10/10 condition, no box. This is a handy thing for when you need an analog volume control for a 3.5mm source and amp (eg computer outputs and headphones). Free with anything else, cost of shipping on its own.

    Non-Audio, but ya'll wild so...

    Garmin Forerunner 305 - $shipping - 8/10 condition, all original packaging. Not sure if it still works or not as it's been boxed up for a while. Includes heart rate monitor strap.

    Aeotec Z-Stick Gen 5 - $20 - 9/10 condition, all original packaging. Works great, with the one glaring exception of Raspberry Pi 4s. Apparently it is *just* out of spec enough to have issues with them, but worked great with Homeassistant on a RPi 3.

    LG USB Wifi Adapter - $10 or shipping, whatever's higher - new in wrapping. Came with my 55" LCD TV from like 2013. Model LGE-WF100.

    Elvis 45 World-Wide Golden Hits song book - $? - 6/10 condition. No idea what this is worth, but I figure some Elvis and/or music enthusiasts may be interested.

    That's a steal of a deal for the Hifiberry given the prices Raspberry Pi's are going for right now. Good luck with the sale!

    There's an MCTH available for $100 here that would marry with the Acopian LPS - open for offers!

    Would the LPS work with a Pi2AES (og not 2.0), do you know off the top of your head?

    Nope. That's a 28v PSU with a 0.5V adjustment. I have one for my MCTH and won't use it on the Pi2AES.

    28V will work on the original PI2AES.

    Sweet, I might use mine to power the Pi2AES then! I assumed not since your FAQ states 24V (+/- 10%), which would mean 26.4V on the high end, but I see up to 48V in the hardware manual now.

    I'll take the Acopian. I'll dig out my MCTH and set it up for my son.

    Updated with the things gone.

    @caute - pending, but @zerodeefex is reliable so it's as good as sold.

    A bit off topic, but gives this a bump. I pulled out my Acopian A28MT210 and plugged the Pi2AES in with no issues. My other PSU has a slight mechanical transformer hum, so going to swap this one in.
