I see you have Boenicke speakers. Just deciding if I need any exotic cable for a pair of W5SE that are landing with me soon.

Re: Recommendations for Streamer/DAC combo

Might the OP want preamp functionality now or at some future time? DSD compatibility/conversion plus Upsampling? Roon, MQA? Bluetooth / Airplay? Headphone output also? That would obviously affect choices. I have the Lindeman Musicbook 20 and it is very good, bearing in mind that it's a high quality ...

Re: Balanced versus Unbalanced

Just considering whether to try balanced connection between Lindemann Musicbook 20 and Lyngdorf SDA-2400 as it happens. Mind you, I've both read professional comments and been told that balanced doesn't necessarily get you the best sound on domestic hifi, no matter what the theory says. I was also j...

Re: I had a stream

Bluesound Vault 2 also worth looking at if 2TB storage is enough. That will rip/store/serve/stream and is Roon and MQA compatible. Bluesound doesn't use UPNP, rather it's own system based simply on any network shares it can find.

Re: Steamers / Renderers what is worth checking out ?

Don’t forget that the hardware spec for Roon will also be affected by how much the DSP, Conversion, Convolution etc etc are used and how many endpoints it’s all being done for at any one time. Much more info to be gained on technical matters by reading the Roon forum of course, though without the so...

Re: Steamers / Renderers what is worth checking out ?

I’m hoping to hear in the next few months that the Lindemann Musicbook series will get a Roon Ready update. They are certainly launching a more affordable Roon Ready Network endpoint under their Lime Tree brand. They are an under-appreciated brand in the UK.

Re: Steamers / Renderers what is worth checking out ?

One of the most comprehensive, services-wise, is the Bluesound range. I have a Node 2, which will function as a (limited connectivity preamp or as a streamer that you can connect into an existing system.. It also does full MQA and is Roon-Ready. Control is via an app. Bluesound doesn't use UPnP, rat...

Hi Fi as such is almost non existent there, of course, though actually a shop has just opened in Funchal.

Re: hi fi plans for 2018

Significant downsizing of house means significant downsizing of Hifi. I have three setups at present in three separate rooms and will be downsizing to one, and probably a naim mu-so at that, although will be retaining a vinyl front end to it in addition to streaming. Once settled, turntable change ...

Re: Bleeding weather

Only at the airport :) although admittedly our land is at 500m with the sea directly below, so there may be the occasional breeze.still, that might save us from the giant tsunami caused when ‘the big one’ hits the Canaries ;)

Re: Bleeding weather

I'm going to build a house on the island of Madeira so I can avoid the often dismal British weather and actually spend some time outside most of the year! Trouble is, there is zero support for Hi Fi / Home Cinema there. That makes Cyrus a pretty good choice for transporting out there and sending bac...
