  1. I use the mConnect every day with the 400 and it seems to work pretty well. I prefer the Auralic lightning app and probably need a better streamer for my Gato 150, which is running off the firestick with Tidal.
  2. What are the dimensions please?
  3. I was listening to them again the other night and I really do think they are brilliant speakers for their price point and for higher.
  4. Just read this review and they have a good write up https://www.stereophile.com/floorloudspeakers/550/index.html

    Second Systems

    I think it is good to try something different, albeit my main system is also Gato. If there is a sound you like build upon it.

    Thanks and it works well, as I spend an hour or two in the kitchen/dining area every day. Unfortunately, my cooking still sucks.....as my daughters know only too well

    Second Systems

    My second system is the Gato 400s with network player and Wilson Benesch Discovery speakers and this is for the kitchen. My third system for upstairs is Arcam movie amplifier with Kef ls50 speakers. At the office I have a Soneteer Orton mark 4 with Sotm DAC and Audiosmile Kensal speakers with super tweeters. I suffer from tinnitus so like to have music on.
  8. If anyone is ever down in SW London I will be happy to demonstrate the difference between the Gato 150 and the Gato 400 through my Audio Physic Codex speakers. I like the Gato amplifiers for their sound and the 150 is very good with the Auralic Vega. I keep being drawn to the Vitus that is advertised .....but need a lottery win
  9. Great speakers and I bought a pair back at Christmas. Good luck with the sale
  10. The Gato 150 AE is epic and I am thoroughly enjoying it and happy to demo if you are ever in SW London. There should be a button on the back for either Bluetooth connection or the Wifi streamer. Gato have their instruction manuals on their website and it is straightforward. I am using the MControl app on my Gato 400 and it works well.
  11. Thanks for the replies and it sounds like Vitus, just have to create a reason for a new system. Like the idea of Luxman, but like bass. At the moment am running Gato 400 and the 150 Anniversary Edition, which is very good.
  12. Have been gazing fondly at the classifieds and was wondering if anyone has had a chance to listen to two or even three of these amplifiers and what is the difference? Do they have a house sound? Thanks
  13. Having just bought the Gato 150 AE and the 400 network player, I am still very impressed and given the price drop is there anything which can compete?
  14. I am interested and will pm. Thanks
  15. Thanks and I actually need a stand, please may you confirm the dimensions. Thanks
