  1. As an alternative how about a Bluesound vault 2i. Store the music on its built in hard drive and connect the wireless speakers via bluetooth. https://www.sevenoakssoundandvision.co.uk/p-41631-bluesound-vault-2i-hi-res-music-server-cd-ripper.aspx It was easy to set and and transfer files to or rip them directly into the hardrive.
  2. Changed my mind and gone for a secondhand Fuji x pro2 from park Cameras
  3. I am looking at purchasing a compact Leica. Anyone got one for sale -max £750? I like the D- Lux typ 109 and seen a couple for sale in London Red dot Leica shop, but thought i would try you guys first.
  4. it was not easy to access the harddrive as some of the screws are partially hidden. new drive needs formatting to EXT4 and then it is recognised. all worked well after that. careful with reassembly as sata lead got caught up 1st time i tried.
  5. all sorted with a new SSD drive all working well.
  6. I have the H6 and you could try Icon audio amps as they work very well for me.
  7. I contacted them a while back - basically said the same and I am left with trying to do it myself as its out of warranty.
  8. Has anyone got experience at updating the hard drive to an ssd as the current one is noisy? i have opened it up and removed 5 screws from the board but there must be some hidden fixings as i cannot get it out to gain access the the hard drive. Any help would be appreciated.
  9. Cheers. This looks like any easy way forward.
  10. Question My Bluesound 2 vault has got Bluetooth input (accepts and plays music from my phone - not the best quality) but not Bluetooth output - cannot play music to Bluetooth speaker (vault 2i does have this option). What would be the easiest and cheap way to enable this as it is only for easy background listing in another room to the vault ? The vault has digital, coax and phono outputs.
  11. Odd looking stands https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/yamaha-NS-1000m-stands-solid-wood-original/183890792868?hash=item2ad0bed1a4:g:NH8AAOSwljJdMcoT
