  1. As I posted on the MQA Fraud thread, I have just shifted my Qobuz account library from the UK to Oz and have shut down my Tidal account (shifting all Tidal tracks to my Oz Qobuz account as well) No dramas, all sounds good, either via Auralic LDS or Roon.
  2. Well, I've voted with my feet. I have had a Qobuz account based int he UK, but haven't really loaded up, with most of my streaming files on Tidal. Signed up to Qobuz in Oz last week and have swapped all of my streaming content on Qobuz UK and Tidal across to my Oz Qobuz account and have stopped Tidal. Sounds great in my Auralic/ME/MAgnepan system.
  3. I similarly object to DRM by stealth, can’t fully utilise MQA without appropriate MQA capable gear from which MQA extracts a licence fee
  4. For me, hi-res Qobuz for me is better than MQA Tidal, and don’t want to pay twice
  5. Not sure what your Roon issue is. I don’t have much in the way of playlists, but I have no problem with Roon dealing with all of local file content (NAS) and both Tidal and Qobuz
  6. Excellent! I will have to swap over my UK account!
  7. That’s a great journey, thanks for sharing. I trust my Auralic Vega G2.1 would fit in that list somewhere 🤣🤣
  8. As an Auralic user, I would obviously recommend the Auralic route, the Altair G1 would be an excellent solution at that price point. However there are other products at or less than your budget, Matrix Audio and Lumin (which you have mentioned), come to mind. I guess you need to weigh up the benefits of a one box solution vs perhaps a bit more flexibility. The Altair has no digital out for example, so you can’t plug it into an upgraded DAC down the track. However, it’s still a one box solution that’s excellent at that price point. It’s an interesting topic for me. I decided to get
  9. @Mjj understand the dilemma not being able to audition Maggie’s. Unfortunately I moved to Adelaide at the start of this year, otherwise I would have offered a listen if my 3.7iR’s. I am sure that @andyr will help you out. There are others as well. Good luck, just be warned, there’s no turning back
  10. I had some 1600 Superslims for many years. They were excellent, but they’re getting on a bit now, would have to be wary of used market methinks. Reference series might be a better bet, and I believe are better speakers. My story is probably not much help, but I sold the Superslims about four years ago and went with a pair of Magnepan MG3.7i’s, absolutely fantastic speakers, I would go the Maggies over the Ambience every time tbh. Detail, holographic, ok bottom end, superb with vocals and acoustic music (but I play everything)
  11. RME ADI-2 DAC fs would fit the bill, a great DAC at that price point.
  12. I had to use a VPN to sign up to pay my subscription via UK Qobuz. But streaming doesn’t need the VPN will switch to an Oz subscription when it’s available
  13. Depends on what breaking the bank might mean for you. Having had an Auralic Aries G2.1 for a couple of months now, I would certainly recommend that as a streaming/ digital transport solution. Also agree with the other suggestions from @BugPowderDust
