    Hard to find Hifi?

    Yes, that's their address. The goldnote I want seems to be the same price everywhere, but as I'm based in Dubai I just wanted to check HTFH were reliable (or Jordan for that matter)

    Hard to find Hifi?

    Morning All, Anyone used Hard to find hifi? I'm after a Gold Note ph-10 and there aren't many dealers. Good or bad experiences? Thanks

    Triangle signature theta

    Demo'd their bigger brother, the Alphas, on the end of my Bryston kit (which is pretty neutral). The result was ear-bleedingly bright - not my cup of tea at all. Thetas could balance out on the end of your valve amp though. I wouldn't drive that distance if you're after a warm overall sound.

    My new profile pic says it all

    With people offering hugs, I'm beginning to see the usefulness of profile pictures after all!

    My new profile pic says it all

    I really don't understand the logic in blocking access to this site until one adds a profile pic. Didn't bother visiting for a few days thinking it must have been a management decision made after a few too many beers the night before and would be quickly reversed. No sign of sanity prevailing so I went ahead and complied, under protest in typically British fashion.

    Some advice please

    Tested Flac up to 24/192. Sounds great

    Some advice please

    The hard drive feeding my 203 has about 1.2 TB of movies and music on it so I know 'width' isn't an issue (oo-er)! I understood some devices have an issue with file depth, i.e. too many folder layers. If you have your files organised in a somewhat sensible fashion I'm sure every thing will be fine. Obviously make back ups though! I'll have a look at playing some Flac files later just to check it's ok with that format too.

    I just use the 203's DAC, but tbh it's just plugged into a small Yamaha unit for 2.1 in the kids room so not too worried about quality

    Some advice please

    I'm using a 2TB WD hard drive plugged into the back of an Oppo 203. Absolutely no problems after 6 months with movies or music (although haven't experimented much with formats). Don't see why the 205 would be any different. Cheers

    Physically small power amp - suggestions please

    I have one of these which is worth a look.... https://www.bursonaudio.com/products/timekeeper/ Very solid build, Class AB, the 80w drives my stubborn KEF ls50's well, and its comfortably in budget. Think they do them in black now too if thats your preference.
