  1. I dont have a streamer..just using my tablet..usb into eitr then eitr into dac x ( co ax input) then optical output to quad cdp..( the cdp2 and dac x dont have usb inputs) the eitr or v link enable you to use older style dacs which is brilliant as you can get a older dac cheaper and use the eitr or v link and the sound...is much better than you can imagine...yes maybe only outputting 48 kHz but it's stonking! The cdp 2, the dac x and my MF htp processor have all benefited enormously from these spdif/ usb converters...it open a whole new world of audio happy..im listening now to the dac x from eitr to cdp 2 then on to quad 909..its fab..fortunately this forum is full of hardened blatherers who scoff and then scoff some more for good measure..so you can get a eitr or a v link for not a lot of money....if they knew how good these bits of kit are? The scoffers would eat their words! Lol..
  2. If your happy then thats the important thing...eitr only uses a co ax the v link uses co ax or optical ( im a fan of optical as a cheap optical cable sounds very good indeed) it is odd how things can change the sound of a dac..the eitr going into the crystal dac on my quad cdp 2 is rather good..im now going to put it through my cyrus dac x + then into cdp 2 as a digital pre..happy days 🙂
  3. If you can find one? The eitr is astounding...my MF V link 2 is very good too but the schiit eitr is a class above it..worth looking at forums re eitr as a lot of hardened hifi buffs who scoff at things like this..buy one and happiness is found at last! I don't know how they do it...but they do it..schiit happens!
  4. No George formby..the lyrics are unacceptable..so its T Rex and The Beatles...and Carcassi too! ( low G tenor is good for classical music)
  5. My work speakers are Leema xeros..so quite small and insensitive..they need a big amp to get them going!! Guess its a hopeless situation..at least i still have my Ukulele..that's a comfort..lol
  6. So having a large speaker is of no consequence then...lol
  7. Yes she is right..go and watch some soaps with and then you can talk about your feelings! Than you can clean the house up..then you can do the garden..and when all this is done..you can ask her for some things to do...sitting around listen music by yourself? Most peculiar! 🙃
  8. The eitr has schiit 5 gen usb ( whatever that is..) but whatever it is..it grooves! One slight problem with the eitr is when tablet goes into sleep mode..the eitr doesn't and it hisses and pops a but till i press play on tablet..bit annoying.. Thankfully its not too loud..so apart from that..its a very very and very good upgrade..i think if didn't have this good schiit..i wouldnt change my usb cable..i would consider changing my dac..
  9. Different usb cables can change the sound..if it were me..i would get a schiit eitr and use it between pc and dac..this would yield a much greater improvement in the sound in my opinion..
  10. We have attic over here too...that's where the ghosts live..in the loft is where all the crap we cant fit in downstairs is! Lol
  11. My Leema xeros are 250 high and 155 wide..so nearly close! If you can squeeze them in..dont think you will find anything to fault..and the bass response is quite sufficent.. ( in fact considering how titchy these speakers are? They are astonishing! )
  12. I have stored lots of bits of hifi in my loft with no problems..
  13. If your happy..stay with what you have..grass isnt greener on the other side...its just different..whatever you get someone will probably be negative about your choice! I have been swapping bits of kit for ages and im now back at where i started! strangely my original kit is the sound I have been after for years! Duh...🙃
  14. According to the great and good here..all cables sound the same! Im going to Whisper now..they dont all sound the same..the great and good are wrong! Im cable believer and will always be..more power to your elbow Fourlegs..

    Im less convinced..you could try a eraser sponge..get it wet..sluice it about a bit on top of record.. This should dislodge any debris..then squeeze out sponge and wipe from inner to outer slowly..job done! Get a 10p record from charity shop..listen to it for a bit..hear all the pops and crackles etc..then try eraser sponge..its a eye and a ear opener! Ps my favourite rush albums is power windows!
  21. Lol..its no joke when it comes to hifi! Yes i am happy at the moment.. Yikes famous last words..
