Re: Round whatever: What record am I listening to?

I bought this album off the back of hearing a track on a freebie CD with Uncut magazine at the time. I must confess that said track apart (can't remember which one) I couldn't stand the rest of the album one bit and ultimately gave it away. Am I right in thinking there is one track at the end that c...

Re: Cubette Mk 2 Review

I'm really pleased with my MkII Cubette's. A steal for the price, I bought a pair of "B" stock so an even bigger steal!

Re: What part of your system is weakest.

To be fair that's a really old Beresford, his original DAC I believe? The latest Caiman SEG's are much better IMO, however my 2nd hand Yiang Sheng DAC-01 that I bought off another forum for £90 sees off the Caiman quite comfortably. Top class build and a very fine headphone amp as well.

Re: What part of your system is weakest.

Presumably the SSP is between the pre and A30? What about connecting your source to the pre,would you say a step up in cable is beneficial too?

I'm a A20/P20 starter system user who's moving up to an A30.

Re: Device for hires audio streaming/playback

Never used or have any knowledge of Pi's. Personally I use, and have done for years, a Squeezebox Touch. Now discontinued but still available on Ebay and suchlike, I love mine. I use it for internet radio and streaming from my Synology NAS. I have it feeding a DAC but to be honest the DAC in the Squ...

I've got Peter Hook's 'Unknown Pleasures' book about life in Joy Division lined up for my holiday next week.
Barny and Hooky were in my class at secondary school, I don't think anyone had an inkling what lay ahead for that pair :grin:
