  1. Looking for a good condition pair of the latest Quad Classics - bit of a long shot but please let me know ! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. I had the Denafrips Ares II and have compared with the Chord 2Qute and RME ADI. There’s not a huge difference in the sound of these DACs in my view. I compared also against the SMSL M400 and felt that was a step above all of these in terms of producing a more natural full bodied sound. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Have you thought about a Quad Artera Play + . Streamer DAC CD player and preamp, might work well with your 909. I recently bought the Solus Play and it sounds great particularly for the price. Natural and full bodied. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Yep there is a slight gap in continuous tracks - doesn’t bother me. I guess It might be an issue for people who mainly listen to classical music. The app itself is pretty good and it sounds very good, not quite as good as my Moon streamer but not a lot in it. It’s a great all in one unit. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. I would also consider a used Moon 180 streamer. The interface is as good if not better than the Node (i have them both). Less features than the Node but with a good power supply sounds better. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  6. Sorry folks now sold Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Downsizing and have decided to sell my fantastic Yamaha amp. Its in wonderful condition with only a tiny blemish on the top plate i can see. A couple of small marks on the remote also but otherwise all good. Comes with all original packaging and its ready to be shipped. £2250 plus postage. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  8. Hi folks This excellent DAC is in unmarked as new condition. Remote never used. In my opinion its a step above Chord, Denafrips, RME models about the same price if you are looking for a non digital natural and full midband. Has various digital filters and Bluetooth also. I have moved to an all in one system with DAC built in to reduce boxes. Bought on Amazon for over £700 in September- yours for £600 inc postage. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk

  10. No free level, but often 3 months trials come along for £3 or similar. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  11. I agree - everything Quad I have heard has been very very good. The Solus Play sounds better to my ears than most of the much more expensive kit I have had at home. It’s more music than hifi to my ears. I used to have the ELS 2805 electrostatics but they were just too big for my room but can see myself trying ELS 57 some time.

  12. Anyone tried the new Solus Play yet? I have one on trial and its an excellent piece of kit. I am streaming via a Moon 180 but the internal streamer is pretty good also. Very natural and balanced sound and really enjoying it so far. Its also very easy to use and - and looks [emoji41] cool. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  13. Oh no .. without doubt a huge figure in hi fi .. so sad. RIP Tim and condolences to his poor family Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. [emoji106] Great album as well Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  15. Ah ok so wouldn’t be a good choice for a high end DAC for my streamer ?? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
