  1. Linn Sneaky Music DS streamer. Mint condition. £499. This super little streamer enabled me to enjoy Qobuz HD without the hassle of my previous Squeezebox. Easily controlled from an iPad with your choice of Linn’s latest app, or its earlier Kazoo app (as well as several other options that I don’t use, such as Lumin’s). Enjoy internet radio, Tidal, Qobuz, podcasts, ‘listen again’ radio, Calm Radio, attach your NAS, etc. The Sneaky will replay up to 24-bit 192kHz sample rate. This compact unit can be hidden away if you wish. Apart from the Linn badge that illuminates in blue, there is no display. Linn do not fit wireless internals as they prefer Ethernet connections. Can be used simply as a streamer (as I do), or there’s an onboard 20 watt per channel (4 ohms) stereo amp so it can directly drive a pair of speakers too. All Linn streamers now have the added optional benefit of Sound Optimisation. This optimises your speakers for your room, and requires no subscription or microphone. More details here:- This model was made in October 2014 and I bought it about two years ago from a Professor in Devon. (He was upgrading to Dcs and Innuos devices). I’ve not used it for about six months, having bought Linn’s even better Akurate streamer last year. The intention was to use the Sneaky in my study, but that looks unlikely now. So it’s time for someone else to enjoy it. Full Linn Sneaky spec here:- Details of inputs and outputs, etc are here:- I have all the original packaging so I can safely post it within the UK. (Located near Abergavenny, but will only demo or offer for collection post lockdown.) At the time of writing a similar but earlier model is on EBay for £549. Wam price before eBay gets it £499, plus postage at cost.

  4. From original klimax upgrade.... Fantastic streamer the only one I've owned to rival my vinyl source... But getting rid of 2nd system now so only keeping upgraded one...

  6.  PIONEER N-50A network music player / streamer with dac inputs - UPGRADED. These are excellent streamers with Plenty reviews online. This one has had the following upgrades applied making it even better: 1) Soundcoat dampening applied to the chassis to reduce resonance. 2) IEC input is silver plated and cryogenicallytreated. 3) internal mains fuses are by Wilband Acoustics. These fuses have a silver plated copper element and the housing is filled with ceramic material for mechanical stability. I had to import these from the Netherlands as not sold locally (made in Germany). 4) couple power supply caps upgraded - seen in photos. 5) Output capacitors upgrades to Mundorf E-cap. This made the staging deeper, more details are heard and more ‘air’ around the instruments. Three other electrolytic caps on the output analogue board also upgraded to Elna Cerafine’s. Sounds great. In good condition and comes in original box, has the remote and original packaging. £255 incl UK post.

  10. Hi, I am looking for advice on streaming and next steps for my hi fi. I currently have Rega P3 with Linn Adikt MM cartridge and Neo PSU, Linn Classik as a CD player, Linn Katan speakers all through Moon 240i integrated amp with in built DAC. I am currently playing my i tunes and tidal on my i pad connected through the Moon DAC using the USB B cable rather than the MP in socket at the front. The amp tells me I am getting 44.1 kHz playback and it sounds really good. I plan to buy a streamer and am not sure about my next step. I know if I but the Moon Neo Mind I connect it to the internet initially wired and it then operates wirelessly, it seems a good solution yet expensive at £1700. I have seen Linn Majik DS used around £850 and if I could play this wirelessly it would seem a good bet, is it similar to the Moon in that it needs only an initial wired connection, or does this need to be maintained. The other question I have is whether the cheaper Arcam airplay around £400 would work wirelessly and provide good sound quality ? All advice welcomed kind regards Peter

  16. I'd be grateful for further input from experienced wammers who have already been generous and patient... After a super-helpful conversation I landed on a Bluesound Node 2 as my new DAC/Streamer solution - and I couldn't be happier. My next project had dual purposes: do something about my complete and embarrassing lack of backup of my NAS take advantage of that backup to access my whole music collection in my northern man-cave in Kendal (and at Kegworth and ...) I bought myself a 3TB WD My Passport HDD drive. After a typically helpful Wam conversation (seriously!)... ... I spent an enjoyable, informative and scary morning with generous Dave (slavedata) looking at Pi-based solutions and have <whimpers pathetically> probably ruled that out. The most obvious solution is a second Bluesound Node 2. Formatting the HDD: Bluesound Node 2 can read (only) FAT32 and NTFS so I'll go with FAT32 (exFAT is equally platform-agnostic and doesn't have the 4GB file size limit but that is hardly a real world constraint for a music collection. Have I got this right? Connecting the HDD: If I buy a second Bluesound Node 2 it will live in Kendal; but the external drive (HDD) will regularly travel between there and the midlands for the purpose of backing up my NAS. I have read a couple of confusing threads on the generally excellent Bluesound support site which seemed to mix up USB memory sticks and external drives, and implid that I may have to reindex every time I plug the HDD into the Node 2; and/or that if I plug the same HDD into the router then I won't. That was the point at which I stopped reading and came to the wam... Reindexing doesn't take forever and isn't a showstopper but if I can just plug-and-play then obviously I'd rather do so. How shoud I be connecting my external drive/HDD to th Bluesound Node 2? Direct to USB port? Or via router? All advice much appreciated. Many thanks, Nigel
  17. Latest RealReview from David Ayers Sometimes in life you don’t get what you expect, and so it was when I agreed to review the SOtM sMS-200ultra network player. What I expected was a drop in replacement for my Pioneer N50a player, which is a decent midrange streamer and is why I jumped at the chance to review something rather more upmarket. What I got was what is more commonly known as a renderer, which means when I opened up the box and examined the contents, instead of the expected RCA outputs, what I actually saw was a single USB out. After initial exclamations of, “what the heck have I got myself into”, I spent considerable time researching this and similar products, the most well known of these being the Microrendu. So, if like me you don’t know what this type of product is meant to do, let me explain. Basically it is a small computer running software to allow your current DAC to connect to your network, and save having a laptop etc. sat on your rack. What separates this from a regular mini computer is the attention given to inputs and especially the USB output, in terms of the quality of the USB signal and also the noise in the connection. It also supplied very clean power allowing portable DACs to be used as well as mains powered ones. To get sound out, you must attach a separate USB DAC. The software called Eunhasu comes preloaded, and fires up automatically when powered up. Access to this software is through a web interface via your browser. It has a number of options available, and I will explain those later. On the rear panel there is a socket for the supplied wall-wart power supply, an ethernet port, two USB ports for attaching hard drives or flash drives, and finally the high grade USB output. A reset button and micro SD card port are also positioned here, the former for emergencies, the latter to hold the software that runs the whole box. An upgrade linear power supply is available, but this was not supplied for the review. The unit itself is small and slim, and sits on four tiny clear bouncy feet. I didn’t use any special isolation during my time with the 200ultra. The options to connect in the software include Roon Ready, Squeezelite, DLNA, and the popular HQ Player NAA. Somewhat overwhelmed with options, I decided to not use the HQ Player NAA for any of the review, as it isn’t integral to the use of the unit, and those who love it will already know what it does. So, now for the problem, as a user of an all-in-one streamer solution, how was I to review this. Here at home I have the aforementioned Pioneer N50A, which can also be used as a USB DAC, the very competitively priced Meridian Explorer 2 DAC, and a Native Instruments Audio Kontrol 1, which I use as an ADC to digitize my LPs. With this lineup I was concerned that the 200ultra would not be given a fair trial. With that in mind I also arranged with a fellow Wammer who lives 400yds from me that we would also audition the 200ultra in his system with his Stello Eximus DAC. More on that later. Connecting up the unit was simple enough, power, Ethernet, and Meridian DAC in the back, with my existing QED cable to go from the DAC to my Musical Fidelity M3i integrated amp. I switched on and watched the various colours glow on the from switch as the system booted. I already have Jriver all set up on my laptop to feed my Pioneer, so I used the web interface to activate the DLNA software, set Jriver to stream via DLNA to the player using the “Audiophile 24 bit” configuration and pressed play… A word about the Meridian DAC, now I bought this with the express purpose of investigating MQA from Tidal. As such, I normally plug it straight into my laptop, and thence to my system. I would categorise the DAC as being good value for money at £129, but a bit rough and ready. Back to the plot, first track up was David Bowie’s ‘Oh, You Pretty Things’ from Hunky Dory, in FLAC at 24/192. I was amazed, as in mouth open disbelief. This isn’t a rough and ready DAC, it’s actually remarkably capable, but fed from a laptop it has no chance to show it’s true colours. The clean power and digital signal from the 200ultra lets this little DAC fly, with quite remarkable results. Yes I gained the usual clichés like extra detail and control, but what was truly surprising was the gains that I got in dynamic tension, and the flow and ebb of every song that I played. It should be noted that with the Eunhasu’s implementation of DLNA, it relies on the server sending the information, it cannot be used to pull the files for playing. Now with my Pioneer, this approach is a problem, as it doesn’t support gapless in this mode, but I’m happy to report that all albums that I listened to (and there were many) played gaplessly without any hiccoughs. Next up I set up Squeezelite to catalogue my music collection, all of which is held on two NAS boxes on my network. This it did very swiftly, and using the Logitech Media Server web page, or alternatively the LMS app on my phone, I was soon able to play any album that I wished. I did feel that the sound quality was marginally softened compared to the DLNA option, but it was slight. I also used the Tidal integration option within LMS which worked but had one fatal flaw, which was that any MQA album I tried failed to illuminate the MQA light on the DAC. Clearly something isn’t bit perfect with this implementation, and searching the internet showed that I was not alone with this issue. Obviously the 200ultra is not to blame for this. Wishing to test out MQA via the 200ultra, I opted for the Roon 30 trial, as Roon has Tidal integration built in. I can confirm that MQA albums played from Tidal through Roon and the 200ultra will pass through to the DAC bit perfect and the light illuminates appropriately. In fact I had excellent results using this option. I briefly tried the 200ultra with my Pioneer N50A streamer, which also has a USB input, but I wasn’t particularly happy with the results. I’m not sure why, but I preferred the sound of the streamer’s internal access to DNLA than via the 200ultra and the USB input. Is this because the Pioneer isn’t optimized for USB? To be fair, this wasn’t really a test of how the 200ultra would be used normally. OK, so with these trials under my belt, I needed to find out how the 200ultra would fare with an upmarket stand-alone DAC. Fortunately for me, I have a friend and fellow Wammer 400 yards up the road from me, who happens to have a Stello Eximus DAC which he feeds directly from a laptop. A quick message, and I was off up the road clutching the 200ultra and my laptop with Roon installed under my arm. Now the Stello is an excellent DAC which I have heard before in his system, and really enjoyed. It is mains powered, and I wasn’t expecting the same sort of improvement that I heard with the little USB powered Meridian. I was wrong. One listen of ‘Déjà vu’ from Roger Water’s Is This the Life We Really Want’ album from Tidal via Roon was all both of us needed to be convinced of the clear superiority of the sound emanating from the speakers. Put simply, it was clearer, more defined and very much more dramatic. My friend’s immediate reaction was, ‘I have to investigate these types of interface’. So in summary, the sMS-200ultra is an expensive piece of kit that clearly delivers the goods. If you are looking to add networking capability to an existing DAC, then it should definitely be on your must hear list. Distributed in the UK by:
  18. Has anyone got or had a Sneaky? I am looking for a streamer, willing to spend £1k if its the right thing for me and a good deal (asking too much?) I have tried a few cheaper devices but have not settled with. I have a few Linn products and have been happy with them, so assuming theor streamers are good as well? Will not be using the inbuilt amp, will be feeding into a Meridian 501 pre amp / two Linn LK 140 power amps and pair of Castle Knight 5 floorstanders. Looking for at least the sound performance of my Karik / Numeric CD player. What about the app.. can anyone comment on this also Ta
  19. Hi Here I go..... Bought end of 2014, currently in perfect used condition For sales is my Cyrus Anniversary system (less the Cd Player), for you who don't know what the Anniversary system is, it's basically Cyrus Signature range with few upgraded parts, and a higher quality paint finish. So, what's for sale? New Price - Cyrus X300 Signature £2895 - Cyrus X300 Signature £2895 - Cyrus DAC XP Signature £2995 - Cyrus PSX-R2 £745 - Cyrus Stream X Signature £1395 - Cyrus Hark II Stand £600 - Black Rhodium Cratos Power Leads x 5 £750 No cables included, I'm keeping them for my next system Total New cost £12,275, Selling for? see below I don't have the CD player anymore, I sold it a few years back to fund my TT. If you really need a Cd player Cyrus signature going on Ebay for £1000, or If you already have Cd signature and also phono signature and the rest of your system is not signature, then this would be perfect. Here is a link to the review, Selling for??? I am open to sensible offers, I am not willing to sell any item individually. PM if interested

  23. We have just released a new review of Linn's newest top streamer the Klimax DSM Mk3.

Not only is this a good review of the design of the streamer but also a comprehensive subjective review. I managed to hear the streamer in a shop for a few hours and it was impressive and far better than what it replaced. Want to know more then go here:

  25. We are pleased to announce that Elite Audio is now the official UK distributor of SOtM products. The Korean brand have a passion for excellent sound quality with their name literally standing for "Soul Of the Music™". The components created by SOtM are some of the most outstanding in the world, with the company already boasting a few Blue Moon awards. From Headphone amps to power supplies, SOtM have certainly made a name for themselves in the audiophile world. Elite Audio currently have a selection of SOtM products in stock, including a couple of the brand's Blue Moon winning components. sMS-200 Mini Network Player (RRP: £449) Most recently awarded the prestigious Blue Moon award was the sMS-200 mini network player. This Blue Moon was no ordinary Blue Moon however, as the sMS-200 was given the Blue Moon Realization award for its excellent value. SOtM developed this component with their own technology, focusing on creating the best sound from a network player. The ARM processor board is its most impressive feature and combines SOtM's own expertise and technology. The sMS-200 is compatible with several software programmes including Roon Ready, MPD, DLNA and SqueezeLite. Frederic Beudot of 6moons said "...the sMS-200 easily takes the top spot in my list of recommended file players and walks away with a well-deserved value award". This award-winning streamer is now available for pre-order, with 12 months of Roon Ready free for the first five pre-orders. sDP-1000EX DAC & Pre-Amp (RRP: £3,495) One of SOtM's more high-end products is the sDP-1000EX and combines a whole host of audio features. Not only is this component a DAC it is also a pre-amplifier, has a USB audio function which supports DSD playback, a high-performance clock circuit and a battery power supply. Back in 2013 the sDP-1000EX's predecessor (the sDP-1000) received the Blue Moon award. With a few minor improvements to enhance the sound quality and detail even further, the sDP-1000EX takes the award-winning component even further. Srajan Ebaen awarded the sDP-1000 with the Blue Moon Award and pointed out just how excellent a DAC it was for those looking to downsize their set-up; "If I were to simplify my hifi life, stick with the sound quality I've grown accustomed to from owning the Hex and Vega and not suddenly played a very different money game, the SOtM sDP-1000 really would be my first choice!" To view the full range of SOtM products we have in stock, please visit the product page. To find out more about SOtM, please visit their website. Elite Audio also offer an excellent 30-day, no risk trial on selected products allowing you to try out audio components at home with your own system.
