  1. Only a brief listen in John Lewis. Sounded as good as a Muso in the same store. Difficult to tell otherwise. It's one of the few speakers out there that has all my downsizing wish lists (except HDMI input) rolled into one product. Thinking about one / a pair for myself.
  2. I would recommend a pair of wireless active streaming speakers with the possibility of room correction / room tuning. The Technics Ottava SC50 springs to mind. You can buy one to use standalone or two as a stereo pair. It has an optical input to connect to a TV as well. Best of all it was a £600 speaker at launch but you can find them for about £260 new or even less.
  3. I have Pioneer RM-05 that support balanced XLR and unbalanced RCA. £156 each @ https://www.bax-shop.co.uk/studio-monitor/pioneer-rm-05-coaxial-monitor
  4. I also added a startup script to the Roomplayer to go straight into squeezeplayer mode I created a file called S99squeezelite.sh in the folder /etc/init.d In this file I added the instructions to start squeezelite My S99squeezelite.sh file has these instructions (where "XXX" is the name you want to give the Roomplayer) pactl suspend-sink 0 1 mount -o remount,exec /media/usb0 cd /media/usb0 ./squeezelite-armv6hf -o default -n "XXX" -a 80:32:32:1 -d all=info -V Digital -X echo "Squeezelite for Simple Audio Roomplayer"
  5. I've changed the file /etc/usbmount/usbmount.conf to make the USB executable (the USB drive is where I have squeezelite) Using an editor like vi, you can change the mount options like so ... change noexec to exec) MOUNTOPTIONS="sync,exec,nodev,noatime,nodiratime"
  6. Sorry @Man in a van, @bencat ... only just seen this thread a few days late and read the above ... yep, those were my instructions from 2017! Not much has changed since then - I have made one change to an existing file on the Roomplayer and added another startup file. Not sure if you are aware, but other than the two files mentioned above, I keep all the software on a USB drive plugged into the back of the Roomplayer, hence the reason you see the /media/usb0 script references. It makes it easier to update the software on a separate computer, then plug it back into the Roomplayer. I'll try and post the details of the files I modded .. I wrote it down somewhere .. if not, I'll drag them off the device ..
  7. I've added Custom URLs to Tune-in where I've had issues with streams not being available in the UK. If you log into TuneIn and add the URL as a favourite, won't it be picked up in BluOS on your Node?
  8. Another option ... used ... Monitor Audio Mass satellites. The shape would also work well in the space in your cabinet.
  9. Not heard but I was always tempted to get a pair of the Elipson Ms. Review here: https://www.avforums.com/reviews/elipson-planet-m-speakers-planet-subwoofer-review.292
  10. It would bother me if it cost a lot of money. There are some finishes that I won't touch with a barge pole because they mark so easily ... anything gloss black plastic or lacquered black gloss ...
  11. £1495 ... wonder how much you are really saving if it only takes 30 mins to put together. https://www.stereonet.co.uk/reviews/falcon-acoustics-imf100-loudspeaker-kit-review
  12. Does this help? https://soundiiz.com/
