Re: Please give me your reviews on streamers

with bubble is it much improved, in terms of functions? I find it a much more 'user-friendly' interface. For example Cadence only works in portrait mode, so it's limited as to what information can be seen on the screen. Cadence is very much a basic interface for use with Cyrus streamers only. Bubbl...

Re: Please give me your reviews on streamers

My initial foray into home streaming of locally ripped FLAC files was with a Cambridge NP30, and I would have been happy with that (around £400 I think it was). The sound was good, pretty much the same as playing CD's. Then my amp packed up, so I auditioned and bought a Cyrus system (XP/StreamX/PSX)...

"
That's because they were the real thing, weren't they?"


In that case, for me, that's the way to make such a film,rather than the 'RocketMan' approach

Re: Rocketman

Big difference between Bohemian Rhapsody and Rocketman seems to be that the songs in BR sound very close to the 'real thing' whereas on Rocketman they are interpretations (which I don't particularly like).

Re: Tomorrow

I will be voting too. In doing so I will try to select those who can best represent our interests for the time we are still in the EU, i.e the job of MEPs. While it's an opportunity to also express an opinion, it's important to consider the outcome of this election is not about Brexit - that is a m...

Re: Tomorrow

Deciding to vote is easy, it's deciding who to vote for that's the difficult part.

Re: Large CD Collection For Sale

I wish you luck - I think you'll be dissappointed at how much you're offered, probably pennies per CD..

Re: Cyrus Three at Richer

"dropped soon" - Just as well - to my mind the Cyrus 3 wins the prize for the ugliest hifi unit on the market.

I keep saying that - anyone can buy a CD player and shove in a CD, but how are they going to keep up with what is getting more and more technical by the minute..

Re: Roon and Cyrus

Rather surprising since whenever there's a need to add functionality, Cyrus always seem to claim that there's no spare capacity for additional functions.

Re: AM I getting the best mains to my system?

" Would it be worth changing to the new model which supposedly sounds better"

I really can't see that the new AG1500S is any better sonically - they have just tweaked the unit (e.g. automatic fan) and they no longer seem to sell the smaller AG500.

So hang on to the one you've got !

Re: are you on other hifi forums?

I don't do facebook, twitter, instagram, snapchat and the likes. I lost interest with social media not long after it started. Now it seems like a lot of hassle I don't need to start getting interested in it all. Me too (maybe because I'm an oldie) - I generally don't go anywhere near social media a...

Re: are you on other hifi forums?

To be truthful, PFM is my primary forum. As logic would suggest I tend to use CU mainly for Cyrus related.
I was one of the few who used the 'Official' Cyrus forum for a while, but that now seems to have faded away from lack of use..

Re: Cyrus Three at Richer

There's also various trade-in deals on Cyrus at the moment - just check the usual dealers.
