Re: Hello! Newbie first post upgrade advice

Firstly, welcome Ruscoid. Secondly, wow! Quite the dilemma. I guess it really comes down to whether you want to go down the all-Cyrus route or not. I've recently done something very similar to you. I picked up a bargain power amp (8 Power) in my case and it's all snowballed from there. Cyrus represe...

Re: Is the dac xp sig a massive upgrade?

I found it was a noticeable improvement but nothing like the upgrade from PreDac to DAC XP+. Leads me to believe the XP+ is about 80% of an XP Signature. Diminishing returns as always!

Re: Upgrade advice

Totally agree with the others, the PSX-R upgrade will probably yield the least improvement (in this context). Also, not sure that the 82DAC upgrade from the 8a (which is already a cracking little amp) is where I'd spend my money (£595 nowadays). Think I'd look to add a nice Chord DAC from the Qute r...

A total no-brainer for anyone with a Michell Gyro! (can't comment for any other decks). Good price too!

Re: Turntable vs Streamer What's best? Analogue vs Digital?

Where should the belt sit on the motor, It has two places a larger grove on the bottom and a smaller one on top of that in the middle. I've got it on the slightly smaller one in the middle. Also, I've put the belt on the lower grove on the platter. Am I doing it right? As Joe said for the motor, bu...

Re: Thoughts on speakers...

Im new to these parts, so not sure on the general consensus round here, and hence this suggestion may raise a few eyebrows, but there is a pair of Monitor Audio PL200 floorstanders on that auction site for £1600 at the moment from a dealer I've bought from before and can recommend. I have a pair mys...
