Equipment: macbook air(solely dedicated to audio) audioquest dragonfly kimber cable 8TC Richard Gray power conditioner Dynaco ST-70 Angrstrom Image speakers Looking to upgrade from the dragonfly. I know there's lots of options and i'm learning about 'synergy' between equipment. Considering what i've got are there rec's for a dac in the $300- 500 range? I tend to buy used equipment (usually pretty good at weeding out the riff raff. . .ha!) With that said, i can be swayed to buy new if with something like a DAC it's not with the risk used. All suggestions and references welcomed. Thank you!
Hello. I am new to the forum. I just picked up the Rotel and I am quite impressed. I was wandering if anyone else is using this DAC. It substantially betters the Schiit Bifrost I had prior. I am also looking for tweaks and USB cables. I currently have an Audioquest Carbon but the difference is negligible vs my Media bridge cable. Upgrades I am considering are the Totaldac USB cable/filter or IFI USB power. I am currently running channel d pure music from a 2009 Mac book pro. thanks in advance!
Hello, I'd love to know what, if anything, I could do to improve the audio quality of my setup. Not that it doesn't satisfy currently, but, you know, with the addiction and all...I'm just curious if there are any obvious places where I could look to improve. What could my upgrade path look like? Here's how I listen to music: 1) Rip the CD to FLAC using Max 2) Put the files on an off the shelf Buffalo something or other wireless NAS that has DLNA built in 3) Connect the NAS to an airport extreme 4) Connect a separate airport express to my Marantz SR7005 via LAN (The Marantz reads the NAS off the network) 5) Take the digital optical out of the Marantz into a Rega DAC 6) Rega DAC RCA out to a Primaluna Dialogue Two integrated tube amp 7) Out to a pair of Quad 22L2 floor standers and a pair of REL R205 subs Any weak points in the system? I'm not really looking to swap out speakers, I'm more thinking about the source and signal path. Are there better ways of doing this? My computer and NAS are in a different room and I need to keep it that way. I don't know much about digital audio...I always thought it's ones and zeros, sound is either all there or not, but apparently there's other factors at play... Any suggestions? Thanks a million!
