    DAC Off Part 2: Qutest vs RME ADI-2 DAC

    The best part about buying something is the research and testing / trialing phase. BMW X3 msport .... Gives you that SUV riding position and convenience but also drives like a car ... Especially in sport mode .... Sent from my BND-L21 using Tapatalk

    New Amps to Consider

    Hi, Intrigued by your DAC ... What is the model number please ... I can't seem to find anything on line that is the Focusrite Pre 8 DAC. Cheers, Sent from my BND-L21 using Tapatalk
  7. What a great thread - and to ChemMan you definitely made the perfect choice (of course you don't need me or anyone else to tell you that). Having done through a similar speaker journey as you I can totally relate. In the end I settled for the PMCs and like you I had the option of buying a pair of KEF Ref 1s at a good price with the stands thrown in. I really wanted them to work in my room but they didn't exhibit the same magic as the PMC in my room - they looked great and they provided the KEF sound I'm familiar with as I had the ls50 but they didn't justify the price (in my room). I'm sure the KR1 are capable of sounding amazing and I so wanted them to work as I thought I was getting them for a good price. But those PMCs slot in perfectly. 5 months on I have no regrets. Enjoy.

    I Shocked myself with a Chromecast Audio

    I've been playing radio paradise FLAC through my CCA which is linked to my dac and I have to say the sound has been amazing .... Very musical ... I could easily listen for hours ..... Everything seems more open, expansive and there .... The presentation is very different to the music being played from my Nas via usb to DAC ... I prefer the CCA ....

    ATCSCM 40 v. Spendor D7

    I'm so pleased it wasn't just me then ... I demo' d the same set up at oranges and lemon and came away unimpressed, compared to the PMC 25.24, anyway. Sounds like you have the right amplification and power feeding the ATC to bring the best out of them .... Would love to hear your system. As I've said in another post, I concluded my demo with the ATC without prejudice and would demo again future. This time the PMC took the honours (asethetically too - wife's criteria).

    ATC SCM40 Speakers

    Yes - it was at O&L. Perhaps I should clarify a couple of things as my short posts may have been taken the wrong way. I preferred the PMC over the ATC during that demo .... I make my mind up pretty quickly. I'm not discrediting the ATC .... Just goes to show we don't all gravitate towards the same sound. O&L didn't rush my audition ... As I said I make my mind up quickly so cut the audition short. The facilities are great, very relaxing and friendly. Just to confirm I'm not knocking the ATC - so please do not be offended by my comments. Sent from my BND-L21 using Tapatalk
