  1. evening does anyone know where to source 1/8inch thick foam/sponge to replace the sponge on the earpiece of the Ergo2? DIY rather than the monstrous precide price. liam
  2. Interesting - recently got a SMSL B1 off amazon https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B06VVL4WHL/ref=asc_df_B06VVL4WHL58142109/?tag=googshopuk-21&creative=22146&creativeASIN=B06VVL4WHL&linkCode=df0&hvadid=310815861304&hvpos=1o2&hvnetw=g&hvrand=17938876890957767216&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvqmt=&hvdev=c&hvdvcmdl=&hvlocint=&hvlocphy=9046422&hvtargid=pla-358823242304
  3. afternoon anyone had any experience of this Re Bluetooth -> coax out ? liam
  4. evening settling onto the idea of an asynch usb ->spdif coax convertor to feed my Sonance Dac [found out y'day of the death of David Pritchard of Net-Audio fame - RIP] what does the panel think of this bit of kit, not that they are sold new at moment! cheers Liam
  5. ah ha the DAC only takes 16bit at 44.1k
  6. evening - i posted this incorrectly on 2 channel! i have a macbook pro 2010 [USB-2] that id like to get a usb->spdif convertor to hook up to DAC im in the sub £50 market ! ive seen a few - the Fanmusic FM6011 and the Phiree U2S and a few others its all a bit confusing!!!!! varying chipsets, no power/battery power etc etc i only need spdif-coax output, but plainly USB-2 input, have the panel any advice/suggestions of models etc please Liam

  8. good afternoon im looking for a dvd player that is a good cd player [if that aint an oxymoron] or has the necessary attributes to be such, with a vga output/s-video/rca/coax [and maybe hdmi output] i know it'll be a vintage one - what flavours etc does the panel recommend? liam
  9. good afternoon im looking for a bit of advice from the wise - i have a BB PB 64Gb, i have been using a SBT into a NetAudio Sonance DAC via BNC coax. having just bought a desktop charger for the PB i wondered if there is a way to use this instead of the SBT, or am i barking up a non existant tree ? DLNA file sharing etc etc Liam
  10. have you a link to the HP microserver ?
  11. sorry yes a SSD as replacment hard drive for the laptop i was wondering about a smallish SSD internal - really for OS etc on laptop - then a USB hard drive disc and somehow NASing it ! [if this is possible]
  12. good afternoon i have a SBT - and am looking into a NAS though am somewhat ignorant of what to look for can anyone offer guidance as to what to look for re specs and whats a good 'un at various price points? i have an old fujitsu amilo 1718 laptop that needs a new hard drive this has sort of triggered this line of thought, i have been wondering about these SSD thingies...... liam
  13. thats interesting hector - i cant hear the starck in my room ! but it is quite a way from the speakers and listening position
  14. ive gone down the SBT - 180 quid pixmania route - and a Lacie starck external 2TB hard drive 100 quid - very neat, looks the part job done music is on itunes upstairs on laptop - loaded and downloaded onto HDD then fat32 format onto lacie -> transfer every month or so [ back up on another external hdd] safe as houses, and most formats catered for.
