  1. I always suggest that with any new speakers, you go easy on them for the first 48 hours. Pushing up to 75% volume on any amp could be enough to damage even the most resilient speakers, just because the volume dial can go up that high, doesn't mean it should.
  2. I believe Exogal have a dedicated power amp on the way designed specifically for the Comet DAC, could be worth looking at that? Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  3. I think you'll actually find it's ELAC having a laugh. Synergy is generally very good when it comes to price parity (by the time you take into account conversion, shipping, GST), but with these new Andrew Jones designed ranges, ELAC are proving to be less flexible.

  4. To be honest, this is the least of my concerns. All of them have been pretty average in that regard. My concern is more around how debilitating the tech glitches are in how they take away from the story/characters etc.
  5. Maybe, in order for this topic to remain relevant with previous and now replacement models, we could get the name changed to The Official NAD Direct Digital Owners Thread ?
  6. And so it will play, but it doesn't have any analog outputs, so it can't serve as a DAC. It provides digital output only. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  7. The AES is there because it is a digital transport only, and doesn't have a DAC. NAD have a product that is essentially a scaled down M50.2 without a CD drive and 2TB HDD, the Bluesound Node 2 and it's $999. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  8. Yeah, keep me posted with your thoughts. I loved 2 & 3, 1 was good, but I didn't like it as much as the others. Been a fan of Bioware stuff since KOTOR, so hoping they get on top of this quick.
  9. I have to admit, with the barrage of average reviews doing the rounds, I'm feeling like I'm going to hold off until they have released patches to deal with technical issues. Shame, I was looking forward to it.
  10. I'll be getting onto this when I finish Horizon: Zero Dawn. Nothing Bioware has made in recent memory has disappointed me so far, so I'm definitely down.
  11. Looks awesome too!
  12. Off topic, but I actually worked for quite some time with Ash from Stylus, top bloke and killer afro! GLWTS
  13. Not exactly a glowing review, particularly with regards to sound.
  14. I have found the majority of masters on Tidal are typically better sounding than their CD quality equivilant, even running via a non-MQA DAC.
  15. Haha! It really had so much potential.
