Re: Headphone setup

Don't connect headphones to anything that is not 3.5 or 6mm jack!

If you want to listen to vinyl, you need a headphone amp with analogue input so I don't think that works for Hugo?

Re: Is the dac xp sig a massive upgrade?

If you only want a pre-amp, there are some serious passive pre-amps for that kind of money. I got my MF baby for 1100 quid for example.

But are you sure you couldn't improve things with a DAC? What about a Chord Hugo for example as this has volume control?

Re: Bi-amping speaker connections

Normally you put the more powerful amp into bass but if the power is similar then you put the better quality amp into the treble. Problem is that a better amp is often the power amp!

Just that CDi will be better than CDt and DAC in amp.

Re: CDi+active speakers or CDT+8 DAC + passive speakers

Welcome to forum The DAC in 8 DAC is not as good as that in CDi. I would certainly demo CDi with Active Speakers against 8 DAC and passive speakers to see which you prefered. 4m by 4m is NOT a small room unless you live in a palace! A couple of s/h Mono X would sound much better than 8 DAC even in t...

Re: Google Chromecast Audio

It is a new Chromecast not a new Chromecast audio. The chromecast has an HDMI connection. The audio has a USB connection.

I'm guessing they are dropping the audio.

Re: Help! Which order of wiring?

I am thinking that the Naim will more transparent than the Bel Canto so connect the Bel Canto to the Naim assuming it has analogue inputs.

Re: Nord Two SE ICE1200AS2

I would go for Nord One as 10-15% SQ can be a lot.

I think the sound will be very different to Mono X which is why I will probably go to MonoX300 or MonoX200Sig's in the next few years.
