  1. I’ve always fancied a Roksan Caspian amp having a Kandy as my first upgrade way back. Just throwing this in but what about a nice pair of Totem Arro’s? Slimline and other half friendly which should allow for some decent cabling. Could be nice! Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  2. Yes agree for what the mojo is it punches above weight! I’ll take a look at some options including the Oppo’s. Does anyone like Pioneer headphones here? I also like the look of Meze and Focal. Thoughts for around $1k? I’ll use the momentum’s for the commute whoever that starts up again![emoji848] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Hi guys. I’m currently using a very simple combo of a Mojo with the Sennheiser’s hooked up to an iPad for listening to music either via YouTube or Deezer. Would you say an upgrade of headphones is my logical best step or headphone amp? I listen to mainly DJ sets and electronica. Thanks! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Great options. Would a supernait 3 go well with 52SEs & Contour S1.4s? I remember when looking to upgrade from A Cyrus DAC-XP/Mono X200 Sig combo, my dealer told me I should go for a Naim 272/250 combo. He reckons that would be terrific with the S1.4s. I am going to get another demo of Naim. I know it’s an agile sound which I like. It’s probably going to be a lot more of an investment though[emoji848] Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  5. Morning boys! Thoughts on this combo? The other thing I like the look of is a Primare i35. https://www.audiogon.com/listings/lisa777g-electrocompaniet-integrated-amp-solid-state With..... https://www.audiogon.com/listings/lisa7b9a-electrocompaniet-ampliwire-ii-stereo-power-amplifier-solid-state Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. Yep Lurch, definitely a Node 2i and for sure I’m going to check the class A options you have all suggested- Nord, Ncore, Belles, Sugden etc. all look interesting slightly left field options which I love the thought of. Not ruling Bel Canto out either. SS wise I’ll put Leema on my shortlist. Has anyone had experience with a Krell and thoughts with Dynaudio? Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  7. The Moon 340i was so effortless with the 1.4s I miss that combo. You’re right they do love multichannel here. I’ve had advice on getting one of the new NAD T778 multi channel receivers that has a built in bluesound streaming unit. Apparently sonically it’s quite capable with music. The thought had crossed my mind to go for one of those and maybe find an older S300 integrated for 2 channel as liked their industrial looks with loads of current. Then it comes back to if it ain’t broke and I like the balance, get another Moon or Leema or Supernait 3 and a better streamer and job done. I know they can dig the depths of these speakers which do need a better amp than I first thought. Hope I’m not boring you guys with these thoughts! Just entering the fun part of exploring all options and very much appreciate your input!! Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  8. Brilliant thanks very much for this! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Hi there. I’m in the process of rebuilding my system and in the process of buying an integrated amplifier. I want to digitally connect a Sonos Connect to the amp and hook to some Dynaudio Contour S1.4s. The Mojo has a coax and an optical connection. Can I use that to connect my Sonos Connect streamer? I want to avoid the outlay of buying a separate DAC at the moment. Thanks! Iain Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  10. It’s a great option Plasticpenguin! I very nearly bought a new one of these 2 years ago but went for the Moon as was intending to go for a Moon mind streamer but never did. The thought of buying the Arcam for $800 all in made me think it’s a bargain and save me a grand but...as I will need a DAC that’s making me rethink what to go for. I am not wanting to go down the power amp monos route- I’ve done it before and prefer with these speakers to put a nice integrated on them that I can easily hook a streamer on to. I’d be up for the Leema, just need to get New Year out of the way and get the funds together. Cheers for the advice! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Agreed. They are a challenge to drive well. Believe adding a P38 Rayo this would improve things. I wasn’t thinking of buying a separate DAV at the minute to get things up and running. Hmmm... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Here’s a question- I have a Chord Mojo. Can I use that as a DAC to start with and connect the Sonos/Arcam to that? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. Think I e come up against a stumbling block...just realised the Arcam hasn’t got an inbuilt DAC which in need to hook the Sonos up to digitally. This makes a huge difference to the sound as we know the Sonos itself is not a great sounding piece of kit. It might be best to look for an amp with this built in. Thoughts?

  14. OK chaps, I’m considering putting an offer in for A38 Arcam (thank you Hifinut). QQ can I hook my Chord Mojo up to it to listen to headphones as a starting point? If so, how do I do that (which connection from Arcam amp to Chord and is it digital?). Cheers for all your help so far! Iain Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  15. OK I’m going to try that. They look nice and I like the idea of a class A powered set up[emoji106] thank you! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
