    Innuos Zen - new app vs Roon

    Has anyone compared the new Innuos app (with the server InnuOS 2 upgrade) with Roon? I'm a happy Roon user at the moment and would need a good reason to jump ship.

    What cable/connection to use- Macbook to DAC

    I can't seem to get a straight answer here. I'm currently using Audirvana to stream Tidal tracks from my 2019 Macbook pro to my Naim Atom. I'm using WiFi but am thinking it might be better to direct cable but can't figure out what is the best connection. Best to use the headphone jack to...

    Computer streaming to headphones

    What's a great HiFi streaming setup that doesn't take up too much room. I'm really trying to go with just a few boxes, rather than stringing together a bunch of stuff. I don't need volume- it's a small room- but want quality sound both in my phones and speakers (ideally bookshelf). I do have a...

    B&W DM601 S3 Bookshelf Speakers- New requirements for amp in family room

    Hi everyone, would appreciate some words of wisdom. I love my B&W DM601 S3 bookshelf speakers ( 8 Ohm, 25 - 100 W), currently stored in the loft. My old amp is long since dead and in reality, my requirements have changed, having a young family who wants to easily steam music (Bluetooth)...

    Question Streamer for Musical Fidelity M8 Xi

    I have a NAP 300 based Naim set up and I am fed up with the task of building a Naim 'pile 'o' boxes' thing and I am looking for a powerful alternative. I anticipate mostly listening to music from CDs stored on a NAS and from streaming services. I am contemplating buying a big integrated...

    Stereo streaming solution for a 38m2 living room?

    Hi I'm looking for a streaming solution for a 38m2 living room. It has to be wifi, not bluetooth, and I'm not interested in smart-functions. Most important is the sound quality. I would like stereo. I am looking at a stereo pair of Sonos One SL, but are there any better alternatives within a...

    Hi all, I'm new to the forum and hope to get some insights from you guys on what setup could give me my current happiness in an updated smaller and wireless package. Current setup: B&W 801 S80 Quad 99 / 909 / CDP-2 (dac) Chromecast audio and yes, Spotify. The above setup gives me really...

    Upgrade to Topping D90 DAC?

    Hi, I'm building my first hifi system, a very simple one. I just need a decent integrated amplifier and some bookshelf speakers. I use Google chromecast audio to stream Google Play Music. My Yamaha a-s701 amplifier has an internal DAC, but I'm wondering, whether the sound quality could be...

    Bluetooth receiver

    Evening guys, hope everyone is ok :) I have a relatively old Marantz Melody Maker (it’s crazy how things become obsolete). Want to add a Bluetooth receiver as Airplay is annoying and I mostly use Spotify. Anyone got any recommendations? Want one with aptx ideally. Thanks in advance!

    New Headphones V Premium Stream Quality

    I currently have a pair of Sony MDR-ZX770BN headphones and a Spotify Premium account, but I'm looking to get a better sound quality. Should I spend my hard earned money on new headphones or upgrading to Deezer HiFi/Tidal. Is it worth upgrading to FLAC/Lossless when my headphones are sub £100...

    Best way to stream Tidal to my HiFi

    I've recently invested in some Arcam kit (SA20 Amp and CDS50 CD player with streaming capabilities) and have wanted to stream Tidal (HiFi/FLAC) to it. Although Arcam have their own Music Life App which lets you do this natively from within the app, the experience is poor (app is a bit flaky...
