I still have to do some thinking about the amp... nothing decided yet. So you think the Brio would be enough for the BR09?I see. For the record, you don't need as much wattage as you think from your amplifier, especially if you do a lot of low level listening.
Do you already have the Bluesound/CDP/turntable/tape deck? Or which of these do you already have? Also, does your CDP have a digital output?
I do have a CDP (Marantz CD6006, with digital output yet I prefer the built-in DAC), a turntable (a freshly refurbished Thorens from the 1990s), and the Bluesound Node. Will get my hands on a vintage tape deck as well, next week.
