  1. Looks by the reviews that the Audia Flight keeps up with the Simaudio 600i. So it would destroy the Peachtree easily. 100 quality watts and a 520VA toroidal transformer. Yum, yum.

  6. Item: FS: CYRUS 8 DAC INTEGRATED AMPLIFIER Location: Melbourne Price: $800 Item Condition: Very good Reason for selling: NLR Payment Method: Pickup only - Cash Extra Info: Purchased from SNA recently as a possible replacement for my dad's non-working Cambridge amp. We ended up fixing the Cambridge ourselves so this one is no longer required. I am the second owner. Originally purchased from Carlton Audio Visual in Melbourne. 5 stars from Whathifi: http://www.whathifi.com/cyrus/8-dac/review I had it paired with an Apple Airport Express and some Rega Kytes and did not miss my reference system while I had it running. I think that is high praise. I would keep it for a second system if I had the space. Pictures:

  8. What @SteveC said. Also I don't get the volume control thing. You don't really want digital attenuation do you? (excuse ignorance if I have missed something). The 'use exclusive mode' and 'force volume' make it a WASAPI output which would be what you want? Don't forget to make green (tick) all the boxes in the Tidal desktop app where the Meridian appears under settings/streaming:
  9. Is the internal dac in the D1 not up to the task? Was going to try one myself to replace studio computer and bryston dac.
  10. Not sure what kind of crazy is going on at Exposure but the 'D' denomination at the end of the new model is not a DAC. It is just a 'direct' fixed volume av input. Why would you put a D at the end for that? Looks like the class a one is an absolute bargain.
  11. For better or for worse, looks like it's class D (icepower) http://www.peachtreeaudio.com/nova150-amplifier-with-dac.html
  12. Read post no. 3 https://www.audioaficionado.org/showthread.php?t=38312 Looks like you already know the answer.
  13. I agree with everyone else making 'room' comments. No way do those speakers suit that sized room. If anything you should be thinking of moving smaller, not larger. With your current speakers I hope you have massive, massive bass traps and significant room treatment coverage. Otherwise it is very likely you are not getting the bass you want because of the room mode suck-outs. Those 800s need a room at least twice the size of your room. I run Dyn c1 bookshelves in a properly treated room the same size as yours. Even the c1s need more space. If you can, try to get a listen to your current speakers at a dealer with a large (at least twice yours), properly treated room with music that you think is lacking bass. Just trying to save you from chasing your tail.
