    My First Streaming experience.

    I found a Node 2i 2nd hand for 350 a few weeks ago!! Totally agree on the Spotify v Tidal thing - Tidal is absolutely streets ahead in SQ and well worth the extra outlay

    What's yer bits'n'bobs?

    Well, funny you should say that I tried a pair of Tung Sol 12AX7's behind and...no sound. I'm assuming a different type is required and the manual is no help, not a lot on line either........

    What's yer bits'n'bobs?

    I have put a tung sol 12AX7 in the window seat and it made a difference to the top end definitely - I have Gold Lions in my Phono pre and agree they are something special quite an upgrade. I have tone controls in all my set ups, heresy to some people but indispensable to me. My Vincent is the 1st amp I've ever bought that I've considered a keeper.

    That was the aim aesthetics and sound equally plus bang for buck (all 2nd hand apart from the schiit kit which is buttons anyway). Very minimalistic and sounds ab fab, quite stunning in fact. On the other hand my music room set up is another kettle of fish entirely - I will post pics of that shortly Thanks for your kind words newie!!

    What's yer bits'n'bobs?

    Thanks a lot - even my Wife hasn't complained about this set up so aesthetics must be spot on. I will be addressing the trunking issue now you mention it, you are right probably won't make a jot of difference but why leave things to chance eh

    What's yer bits'n'bobs?

    Thanks v much - with it being a living room system aesthetics are extremely important (hence the fact that a lot of it is hidden) Fortunately it sounds bloody marvellous too!

    NAD'S BEE, R.I.P.

    A real coincidence i just got my C320BEE out of storage this morning to replace my main amp which has developed a fault....Been really enjoying the distinctive sound all day!!! RIP Mr BEE

    I am a nad fan, what is your addiction?

    I’ve had a Nad C320BEE for years - I actually love the plain industrial look plus of course the no frills soulful depth of it. I’ve had other Nad products which I’ve liked - their CD players however sound good but are made of chocolate and matchsticks... I can’t over obsess on one brand but here’s some other mostly budget kit I like = Monitor Audio make excellent cheap speakers as do Dali - although both need decent amplification. I really like Sonos for their functionality and house sound. Arcam also, particularly their Dacs which are all sweet. Finally I have a soft spot for 1970’s Pioneer receivers which to my ears knock spots off the majority of low to mid range amps of today

    Which 70's Amp

    I have a recapped Pioneer SX790 in my vintage set up powering Ditton 33's - unbelievable sound for the money. I have a mate who swears by vintage Marantz with his 104's although I've not heard them

    Bluesound Node 2i Wi-Fi issue

    I've got it working!! I switched off firewalls on my router and it connected straight away. Thanks v much for the suggestions
  15. Has anybody had an issue connecting a Bluesound Node 2 or 2i to their Wi-Fi network? I'm having a mare with mine. It cannot see my Wi-Fi (it can see my neighbours though!!!!) I've tried manually setting up as per Bluesound website instructions and that doesn't work either. Hugely frustrating as I haven't had a single device which has been unable to connect.......
