  1. Try the Oppo sonica dac. The Dave was brought to my room at Scalford, to compare with it, and to my ears there was not alot of difference, apart from a few grand in price.

  6. Having done 5 Scalfords I can assure you it is hard work,, great fun, and very worthwhile. I know this is not Scalford, but I think that will work in our favour as Wammers, we will not be trying to sell anything, just offer advice and smile See you there.

  8. DIY compact, active floorstanders

    Hi Robert, how is this project going? I built some 2 way active speakers last year, using the Behringer DCX2496 xover, and two of their A500 amps. The cabinets are large stand mounts, as I was planning on going 3way, and building a bass cabinet to use as a stand. But they have blown me away as far as SQ, and the bass is more than enough for my small room. I have set the gain for my tweeter at -6db, as for hiss, yes I do have some when no music is playing, but it is not audible when playing music. I did a thread on it in the DIY section. Look forward to hearing how you get on, there will be no turning back once you go active!
  9. Yes I agree, I have an original B&W, although it's an EMI early pressing, plus a red dragon copy which I picked up for 20p at a car boot sale, which personally was 20p too much . I have never been a fan, I think it's the annoying verbal introductions that grate with me
