Re: Another DAC XP Sig problem

Surely connecting CD to DACXP via a format of cable and then out to Streamline via a different format of cable is not going to work as you are expecting DAC to do conversion when it is just passing through digital signal? Doesn't your temporary solution make more sense as DACXp isn't doing anything ...

Re: Wilson Benesch Vector Speakers

I swapped from Arcs to a second hand pair of Discovery’s a few years back not quite the same as the new Vectors but they were a huge upgrade. One of the best changes I have made to my system. They improved the sound in all areas but particularly the bass, which is tight and controlled. How big is y...

Re: Please give me your reviews on streamers

I have put a toe in the water with my Chromecast audio with Spotify. The sound quality is good but no where near my CDXTSE2 with PSX-R. I might get a Naim (wasting internal DAC) or a Moon streamer but only after I have got a Signature CD player. The convenience is an issue for me. For downloading I ...

A lottery win and a new house to fit them in and I'd have a white pair in a heartbeat.


I know how you feel except mine would be Wilson Benesch A.C.T. One Evolutions.

Of course I am not stupid enough to actually do the lottery O0

Re: Audiolab M dac as a pre amp

It sounds like you are hearing things I would expect from a better DAC.

I would definitely get another power to bi-amp. There are always lots of them on ebay if you buy things there.

Re: Naiming and shaming

So having narrowly missed out on some Mono X200 Sigs and some Mono X300 Sigs, finally last night I took the plunge on some Mono X300 Sigs (s/h 2995 from a dealer on ebay but in QS!). I will now have to arrange a trip to UK to pick them up (perhaps July). I will do a comparison with Mono X and then s...
