  1. Hi all, My AKG k450 headphones just broke, so I want to replace them. I mostly use them with my phone. It has a headphone jack so I can do wired or wireless. I guess I want them lightweight. I don't like in-ear, but also not overly large. Anyone have any suggestions around $150? Cheers.

  3. Mate, you might want to check out Fiio range. The K3 is a bit over budget but the old e10k sounds good and you can also plug headphones in. You can find them pretty cheap. I have one which I used to run with Audioengine active speakers. Sounds pretty good for what it is.
  4. I have used Definitive Technology subs for a while. The smallest one is pretty good value, and they are quite musical.
  5. Mate, I had Audioengine active speakers for a while and they were really good. You would be looking at their second from top range new or their top range second hand. I think they sound pretty good and are pretty easy to setup too.
  6. Further information: I recently won this turntable in a competition at the Melbourne HiFi Show. I entered thinking the prize was some speakers, but was blown away to realise it was this turntable. Unfortunately, all my music is digital and I cannot afford to get into vinyl at the moment. I only just collected the prize and it remains unopened, packaged as collected from the fine people at Carlton Audio-Visual. Its listed price is $12,999.

  7. With the Chromecast there are two options: 1) optical out which bypasses the DAC and so requires a DAC, or 2) use the Chromecast DAC with results in an analogue signal meaning you now cannot use a DAC and the signal simply needs amplification. In either case, there can be only one DAC in the chain. I hope that helps.
  8. Hi all, At the moment, I have a Klein DAC III feeding a Primaluna Prologue Premium preamp feeding a Musical Fidelity A5CR power amp into Audio Physic Classic 30s. I have a definite technology Supercube 3 subwoofer and want to attach it to the system. What is the best way to do this? The preamp does not have a pre-out. Do I have to run speaker cables in parallel from the preamp, or is there a neater solution? Cheers,
  9. Thanks for all the suggestions. And I can confirm that the Chromecast Audio does output a digital signal if you use a mini toslink cable. Also, I use a Klein III with optical inputs rather than the usb input, so it works fine.
  10. @bob_m_54 Can you explain how to put moode on it? Do I have to reformat it?
  11. @firedog I tried a Just Boom raspberry pi player. It was basically a kit, already setup. However, I could not get it to work with Google Play Music plus the app was not great from the phone.
  12. Thanks for these suggestions, @firedog. Some of these don't seem compatible with chromecast (I use google play music and tidal); but some seem definitely worth a look. I tried the raspberry pi option but could not get it to worth effectively. This is definitely my lack of expertise.
  13. I heard they only have Apple support. No android. Is that true?
  14. Hi all, I have been using a Google Chromecast Audio to stream music from Tidal, Google Play Music and a Vortexbox. I stream it to a Klein 3 Dac and Primaluna Prologue Premium Preamp. I am happy with the DAC and preamp and don't intend to upgrade. At least for the moment. The Chromecast works fine especially for how much it costs. The only problem is the well-documented hiss when you change tracks. Can anyone recommend an upgrade for the streamer? I don't need any other functionality, just streaming from these sources. Cheers
  15. I used to have a setup of Cabasse Bora speakers and a Primaluna Prologue classic integrated amp. They are high efficiency speakers, but also threeway standmount. They throw a huge sound, and go really well with tubes. I found the combination really good. My current was a major step up in order to best it. You can definitely find that amp for below $1500, and those speakers you can get for around $1700 secondhand.
