  1. Just read other post - comment deleted - apologies! (Free bump)

  3. Out of interest what makes you move onto the Vega? Sent from my BND-L21 using Tapatalk
  4. Thanks for posting your thoughts ... A very entertaining read. Can I ask ... Is the listening experience more relaxing with the new node ... Ie less edgy or digital sounding .... Can you listen for a long time before fatigue sets in. I wonder how the modded node compares to the Auralic aries, innuos zen or other streamers up to £1800?? (More if a rhetorical question) .....

  5. Eeekk.. just seen this flash up on my phone. Will have a read later .... Currently in a meeting with a bunch of actuaries discussing financial modelling in insurance .... Haven't a clue what they're talking about .... (And it's my meeting). Cheers, Sent from my BND-L21 using Tapatalk

    Amazon HD

    I'm currently streaming Spotify and Amazon hd through a CCA via optical .... The CCA is temporary whilst I source a suitable streamer. Whilst AHD sounds more resolute / cleaner / slightly harder edged than Spotify, I have to say I prefer Spotify for sound quality. It's more easeful, less glarey and I can listen for longer - there's more of a softer edge but this helps mitigate the slight headaches than can occur when listening to higher resolution music ..... I accept the results may be different if I used a better steamer ..... Sent from my BND-L21 using Tapatalk
  8. Cool - thanks for the update. That is annoying but so long as it's solid and the case will cover any 'imperfections'. Look forward to the updated (pictures are welcome too ) [emoji4] Sent from my BND-L21 using Tapatalk
  9. Cool - don't think I can wait until next week :-) This will provide great insight ... Thank you, Nigel. Sent from my BND-L21 using Tapatalk
  10. Has anyone heard of and / or listened to the minidsp shd? Might be just what I'm looking for .... It's a network streamer which uses Volumino and without a DAC. The plus side is that it has room correction built in Dirac. They do a big brother version with a built in DAC .... Sent from my BND-L21 using Tapatalk
  11. Hi TheFlash - any news on your modded node? Sent from my BND-L21 using Tapatalk

  13. I may have got my darko reviews mixed up so apologies. I believe he compares a bunch of streamers, including the BSN, with the Auralic G1, in which he makes the 'muddy' reference .... Or words to that effect. Sent from my BND-L21 using Tapatalk
  14. I'm ruling out based on 2 assumptions: 'new models therefore newer tech and there 'improved sound' or better RF shielding (whichever way you wish to view it). And based on Darkos review of the zen and G1 .... He described the bsn as muddy compared to the zen .... I appreciate this is just an opinion etc etc .... It's just where I choose to start. If the shortlist doesn't impress I may check out the node .... Sent from my BND-L21 using Tapatalk
