QUAD 34 and Network Streamer query

7 posts in this topic

Hi everyone, I have a QUAD 34/405 combo and am currently using the phone stage, cd and tuner inputs. I want to add a network streamer is it possible to use the "tape" input for a streamer? I assume if it's OK I will need a streamer with a build in DAC, my thoughts are possibly a Cambridge Audio CXN. Any other suggestions would be welcome, if new I don't really want to spend more than about £700, happy to look at second-hand. Will be used mainly for Spotify Premium or maybe TIDAL.

Thanks, Robin

hi Fanta, absolutely you can. I use the 34s tape input for my squeezebox touch and it works very well with the added benefit that you can adjust the input sensitivity using the supplied 'flags'.

Hi graham, need to update my profile, the Tannoys were fairly modern, well early 2000's. They have now been replaced by a pair of Spendor S3/5r bookshelf speakers, sound really nice with the Quads, am really happy with them. Robin

hi robin, that should sound excellent, 3/5s and their derivatives sound great with the 405. If ever I need to relocate to a room too small for my tannoy Eatons, I think the graham audio/chartwell 3/5 will be my no. 1 choice.

happy listening !
