    Trouble with Linn Axis via phono

    Hi there, I recently bought a refurbished Linn Axis, I didn't have an amp with phono like I thought I did, so just temporarily today I bought a second hand Sony Intergrated Amplifier TA-F245R. It said it had Phono and even the chap in shop agreed it would work. It wasn't anything long term but...

    CD Players: help me choose

    Hello, I've been really interested in buying CDs and having a collection of the music I like. So in the future I don't have to completely rely on streaming like Qobuz or Tidal. I'm really no that interested in Hi Res audio or MQA, since most of the music I like is available in CD quality. The...

    Setup, positioning and gear advice - PMC TB2, Sony STR-DN1080, Flying Mole DAD M100s, etc

    We’re (hopefully) moving next month, and I’m wondering whether to revisit, and how to position, my current living room hi-fi / home cinema speaker setup, since the new room is much bigger. Ideally I’d not buy (any/much!) more kit, but trying to keep an open mind. Suggestions on speaker...

    SonyWH-1000XM4 connecting to PC

    I bought the above headphones. My PC has an optical connection to a TEAC AI-101DA amplifier. Amp then goes to some Q Acoustics 3010 desktop speakers. So that's great. So I can use the sony headphones with the TEAC via the phones output but if I want to make calls (or webex meetings) I can't...

    Vinyl has lost its warmth and appeal with the Sony strdn1080

    Since *upgrading* my AV Receiver, my vinyl sounds flat and uninteresting. I used to have a Sony Strda2400es which had a phono stage built in and when listening to vinyl on my Audio Technica ATLP120xusb it sounded wonderful, rich and warm. I have apple tv 4k so made the big move to get a Sony...

    Hello, my setup is the next: -Samsung S10e with integrated AKM DAC -Sony WH-1000XM3 wired -Wavelett app MQA is very popular in Tidal, many albums in my library are masters. However I don't consider them to be great on my setup, some CD quality tracks tend to be better for me. I'm aware I'm not...

    Sony 46HX853 200hz & PS5

    First trip into console world with a PS5 as a present for Christmas and not quite sure how the TV Sony 46HX853 will handle it. Just been checking the specs and it delivers 200hz although how this translates into performance is unknown. The HDMI looks to deliver I think a max 1080 / 30p. I'm...

    Fiio X7 - Tidal Offline - £300 Budget

    I have been the happy owner of a Fiio X7 for a while now AM2 module, sounds (IMO) fantastic but as is well documented the UI is clunky and the battery life is getting a little restrictive! I have not had the good fortune of listening to an array of other DAP's and am interested to take...
