i suspect he might find a big improvement with any dac that is of a recent vintage, but you are right that cd player deserves a much better dac

Re: Alternatives to cadence on Apple?

i have got mconnect, and intend to do back to back sound tests from my NAs.
Straight away there is something new. With cadence I can queue up an album, leaving it playing and close app. If I close mconnect, it disconnects. The ipad has many functions in my home, so this will take some getting use to.

Re: Alternatives to cadence on Apple?

Not sure how Cadence works (I've heard it said that it works differently to most). Most apps 'push' data via the media software, to the StreamX. I use Bubble UPnP instead of Cadence and it's better in many ways. I think there's an Apple version. the reason i'm asking is that i don't believe there i...

Re: last jedi

I thought this was barely better than the prequels and a huge disappointment after The Force Awakens. Joe,i suspect if you went and watched phantom menace again you might take that back. O0 As Lucas said at the time , these are films for kids, see the natrix if you want something serious. I think R...

Alternatives to cadence on Apple?

Mconnect player has been compared to bubble on android, there is a free version. Reviews are not a good guide because they seem to alternate between saying its "shite" and "most excellent". I dont know the technical term but i understand that cadence pulls files to the stream x, ...

Re: Apollon (Nord) NC500

having heard diy NCORES and anthem M1 in my system i suggest you must hear anything you buy in your system. i say this because I appreciated the technical abilities of those two amps, but they were not for me. I now own a NORD with sonic imagery op-amps. They are essentially the technology of the nc...

Re: Qobuz v Tidal

i have both. i can stream my qobuz purchases without having a subscription. i'd suggest you get the upgraded firmware because it has a clearer look in cadence, when looking at track details etc And on ipad i've had fewer crashes, there were not many before - but a bit more stable EDIT with 16/24 can...
