  1. Well that was my point with the topic - what is next better than the Node as a streamer - I have a Yamaha AS3000 amp I’m not looking to move on so it’s about what’s the next level up without spending thousands. Also I would like a screen of some sort !! [emoji6] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Excellent condition Unitiqute 2 with bluetooth module. All in great condition with original box. Only point to note is small bit of wire visible on Bluetooth aerial but all works as it should. £670 plus postage. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  3. I owned the Atom for a bit and was disappointed. I loved the interface but sound was a bit flat compared to what I expected. The Node sounds a lot better through a dac to my ears but of course the Atom is an all in one unit and very convenient. I would like to hear the NAD. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  4. Multi room not really a requirement for me. Yep Naim used or Cambridge Audio streamers seem to be a next step up without breaking the bank. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  5. Thanks for the info [emoji106] That 851n looks the part ! Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  6. Good points to be fair - but the Cambridge players seem to have managed to create good sounding players with good apps and a screen. Hence my interest [emoji3] Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  7. Can i ask which external DAC you used with the CXN and how the 851 compared with that set up? Im thinking of trying a CXN paired with a 2qute rather than my Node. I like the screen! Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  8. Ah, didnt realise the Node needs 2A, thanks for clarifying. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  9. Heres an interesting LPS from Topping suitable for the Node and it has 3 outputs. Unfortunately delivery not till August.

  10. Yep is would be good once we out of lockdown if Keith arranged a blind testing of some equipment to see if we can tell the difference between the sound of hi fi equipment and while he measures the items and tells us which is better. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Has anyone on this site ever met Keith ? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. He wont answer Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  13. The problem with replying to you Keith is you don’t get a sensible reply back - only another reiteration of how you must know the measurements of your equipment and cognitive bias means you can’t possibly know if your equipment is better than any other equipment - it’s condescending bollocks Keith!

  14. [emoji14] All sorts of responses possible here - but I agree. Enjoying music is not about measurements ffs! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. I agree .. he never normally says anything to add to the conversation and to be honest it’s a mystery to me why he bothers .. it can’t be doing his reputation much good Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  16. Ah cheers Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  17. Do you mean a Qutest? Any pics ? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  18. Keith I wish your continual unwanted (seems the consensus) banging on about cognitive bias was in my imagination ! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  19. Its five to ten [emoji3] Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  20. Hi Keith, can i ask why is it you keep raising the subject of cognitive bias in other people’s threads ? It seems it keeps diverting the chat away from the OP purpose ? (This was about recommending an analogue interconnect. ) Would you agree or not? Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  21. Ok, so no obvious upgrade from the Node in terms of streaming in sensible money .. ? I wondered what the Naim dedicated streamers sound like in comparison. They can be bought from around £1k second hand. Any thoughts? Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  22. Anyone got one surplus to requirements?.. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  23. I wondered if anyone has tried the latest Brennan CD storage and player ... looks pretty handy but wonder how it sounds from its optical into a proper hifi ... ? https://www.brennan.co.uk/itemcontent.php/content/features Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  24. Interesting .. why do you prefer the RME DAC over the Qutest ? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  25. Reduced to £699 inc postage Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
