Re: How do I get started with Digital Storage and Playback?

Fully "unfolding" Tidal Masters requires an MQA compatible DAC. Don't worry about it, MQA is *ll*cks. If you want a high res streaming service you need Qobuz Sublime I believe. Don't get hung up on "high res" though. Bitrate is meaningless if the mastering is poor. Often an earli...

Re: How do I get started with Digital Storage and Playback?

a) Use a computer connected to the network with media server software.
b) Plug a HDD in and transfer files manually.
c) Store your music on a NAS.
d) Buy a streamer with inbuilt storage.

The best £200 upgrade you'll ever make if you're looking to tighten up your bass!

Re: StreamX versus Auralic G1

Good to see others noticing a difference in presentation between Cyrus and Auralic. They don't all sound the same. The G1 is an attractive proposition at the price. It's a whole other world to Cyrus in terms of features. If the Spendor D7 are anything like the D9 they have a smooth, laid back sound....

Re: HiFi Choice Music Streaming Reviews

On a completely unrelated note but may be of interest to the forum, I noticed on the Power Inspired website that Hi-fi World have reviewed the AG1500S in their September issue, just after my subscription ended.

Re: System Pics

The floor is concrete with wooden flooring on top. There’s a slight bounce to it so I suppose technically the weight of the granite couples with the concrete while the Isoacoustic Gaia feet isolate the speaker. You can actually wobble the speakers as the Gaia’s act as a sort of suspension. If you sp...

Re: System Pics

Thanks.
They really are quite stunning in white if you can get away with it. The dealer hadn’t even seen them before.

Re: Isoacoustics Gaia

My brand new speakers with Gaias fitted have arrived. The speakers sound a bit rough around the edges so I shouldn't really comment on the Gaias until the end of Dali's recommended 100 hours break in period but I immediately noticed vocals are more focused in the centre. Imaging is definitely improv...
