    Im using Musical Fidelity AMS 35i (class A) driving KEF Reference 3. I have’nt heard your Tannoys so audition is a must.

    Cd player advice

    Pp dont get me wrong. The Qutest is a very good dac. Superbly detailed but not as bright as other Chord dacs Ive tried and heard. The EMC 1up just got “more meat on the bones” Imo.

    Pp ..I had my Qutest dac and Aries mini (Tidal)for a few weeks now. And I must admit my EMC 1UP sound better IMO.

    Musical Fidelity M3si - any experience?

    I have’nt heard the M3si but the M6si is very good. I still prefer my AMS 35i though.

    System matching conundrum

    The EMC 1UP is one of the best cdp I’ve heard and I still own. It’s quite heavy at 20 kgs.

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

    I asked cause Im using usb from my Aries mini and the supplied usb cable sounds unpleasant to me. It sounds edgy, too bright and thin. Luckily I have a spare old but well made Chord silverplus usb and the music came back to life. I don’t even care much about others saying all usb sounds the same. I can’t exlpain why but I trust my ears. Thanks Nativebon.

    Top 3 changes to your system in 2018

    My KEF speakers which were bought a couple of months ago. Also with the addition of Isotek Evo3 Aquarius mains conditioner.
  15. I have for sale my Chord Chordette Gem usb and bluetooth (aptx) dac. In very good condition and works perfectly with only couple of very very tiny marks on it and works perfectly. I bought it new from AudioT Swansea few years ago. No original box but will be packed securely. Selling due to upgrade. Looking for £275 (UK) only. Cash on collection from Swansea or can post. Thanks.
