  1. There's a full Roon core on board as well as an 8TB SD drive for local files . MQA is a given.
  2. Connection options. Can't see anything missing here.
  3. I had nothing but excellent service on a number of occasions. Looking forward to seeing the competition.
  4. I agree. I have an Octavia RS. Purchased new 3 years ago. Not one issue since. So much fun to drive and more practical than the equivalent VW. I'll probably end up keeping it for another 5 years so resale issues will probably have limited effect. Having said that if you're turning over vehicles every couple of years there might be better choices financially.
  5. My current source is a NAD 658 DAC/Streamer/Pre direct into 2 X PS Audio Mono Blocks driving a pair of Revel Salon 2 speakers. The NAD 658 is equipped with a 12V trigger which powers on the amps. This works really well. However, I've been considering upgrading the source and have been surprised by the lack of components that offer a 12V trigger. Dac/Streamer/Pre offerings from Auralic, Linn, Lumin and numerous others are all without a 12V trigger. Is there a work around or product that will power on the amps via a source without a 12V trigger installed? I'm surpri
  6. This may answer a few questions regarding Hi Res Audio streaming via Airplay 2 (and 1) If you're an audio quality nerd there's one difference between the two streams, and it's a numbers thing -- AirPlay/AirPlay 2 are stuck at CD quality (16/44) while Chromecast allows up to 24/96 streams. If squeezing the maximum amount of detail out of your hi-fi system is a priority, this may be a deciding factor. https://www.cnet.com/news/google-chromecast-vs-apple-airplay-which-is-better-for-streaming-from-your-phone/#:~:text=If you're an audio quality nerd there's one,a priority%2C
  7. I can’t see any silver in the cables you’ve photographed.
  8. It seems that Mytek are incorporating a Roon Core in their other lines as well. The new Manhattan and Brooklyn models will also have this feature. A very clever set of products from a well regarded Dac maker. Set for release later this year. I’ll be watching!
  9. I think you’re spot on, hence the reason I started this thread. Thanks to all that have contributed. The advice/feedback I’ve received has saved me $100’s possibly $1000’s in products which would have had a negligible impact correcting this issue. Additionally I’ve learnt a few things along the way. As for the sound? The Revels Sound great! Easily the best speakers I’ve owned. Could they sound better in a different room without the need for Dirac? .....probably/maybe. Either way its not an option for now. Thanks again.
  10. Sadly space is the issue here. I don’t really have much room to move. Initially I thought some absorption/reflective panels might help placed behind the speakers. However this does not appear to be a solution. I actually quite like the sound with Dirac running however chasing rainbows ? seems to be the audiophiles lot.
  11. Thanks Dave. Bit of a learning curve but I’ve got it now (I think) ? Good news is Mrs gets a new rug and I get a new house! One day. Cheers.
  12. Thanks https://www.stereo.net.au/forums/profile/108814-davewantsmoore/some pretty succinct and valuable advice there. Appreciate the feedback from yourself and https://www.stereo.net.au/forums/profile/107174-satanica/, https://www.stereo.net.au/forums/profile/105652-steffen/ https://www.stereo.net.au/forums/profile/109073-sakabatou/. Much appreciated.
  13. For the nerds! LOL Moved the speakers forward about 30cm...dip seems to have gone to below 100hz.....
  14. And they do! Remeasured with Dirac running and low and behold the 120hz dips still there. SBIR it is.
  15. Thanks Steffen, I'll remeasure with Dirac operating and see what happens.
