    This proves I'm not an audiophile.

    @plasticpenguin I’d suggest that you avoid any coverage of the Munich Hi-End show as that will make you feel even more out of touch!

    KEF LS50 and Arcam Alpha 10 - New Amp Required - Need help!

    It’s probably been two decades, but if my memory serves me correctly, I wouldn’t have described the Arcam Alpha 10 as being “warm”.

    What's yer bits'n'bobs ?

    @newlash09 looking forward to your opinions on this. A few years back I was looking at Esoteric CD players, transports and DAC’s (the older X, P and D ranges) but was apprehensive about owners conflicting reports on noise from the CD mechanism/transport.

    The Arcam Owners Club

    If you are just using it for CD’s it shouldn’t really matter as both options support 2 channel PCM. Selecting Bitstream means that the DVD player will output the various multichannel standards (Dolby Digital, DTS) depending on what content is on the disc you are playing. Selecting Stereo PCM will down mix any multichannel discs to 2 channel PCM.
