  1. 75" - 77" would be the minimum size at 4m viewing distance. 10 years - that's a long time for a tv in this day and age. Having said that Sony are a reputable brand and "should" last that long but nothing is guaranteed. 10 years well past any statutory warrantee as well. The difference I see it will get down to picture quality and value for money. $7380 A9G 77" V's $3995 X950H (OLED V QLED) Is the picture $3385 better? Ultimately a matter for you. Both these TV's have the same features, operating system (Android tv), latest chipset and video processing. Both are designed to work with the content you're watching. Both are regarded as best in class or close to it. And the winner is........
  2. From memory the PrimaLuna Auto Bias feature will "match" the tubes for you. There is no requirement to fit "matched" sets. Finding 16 "matched" power tubes is going to be difficult and expensive. Info regarding tube matching is available on the PrimaLuna website.
  3. Tidal issues all weekend here as well. Roon is saying the feed is slow.
  4. I would imagine that would work, however Bluetooth range is rather limited and badly effected by obstructions such as walls etc. Also you can only connect to one Bluetooth device at a time. It would sound ok as long as the connection between the devices was good and the latest Bluetooth protocol (AptX HD) is supported by your speakers.
  5. As was reading your list the Bluesound Vault 2i came to my mind immediately. The BluOS is a great interface.
  6. Rather than turn this into another vinyl v's cd/streamer debate which frankly gets pretty old pretty quick I thought I'd address the OP's original question. I don't have at TT but recognise vinyl still has a place in this world, and I'm happy for those who enjoy the "process" of playing a record the sound that it brings. I ripped my CD collection some time ago and stored it on a NAS as FLAC files and later and subscribed to TIDAL, SPOTIFY and ROON (for a period). My listening is now pretty much all TIDAL/SPOTIFY. There are two main reasons - 1. I'm lazy. I can sit for hours and control the whole set up with an iPad. I can access album art, credits, lyrics etc just as I would if I had the CD in my hand (a glass of red in the other). 2. Because of the features of Tidal and Spotify and Roon I can explore musical genre and artists I would never have dreamed of before. Just tap the screen and I'm in a different musical space. It's a journey of discovery and a pleasant one. I'm often amazed at the sheer talent of musicians, vocalists and production engineers who are largely unknown (to me at least). Of course I can revisit my classics taking it a track at a time or the whole album as the mood takes me. As for the sound quality aspect of "streaming", I can't tell the difference between CD, CD stored on NAS and CD via Tidal. Spotify is a different matter. Today setting up a streaming platform is pretty easy, no special computer skills are required. However a solid internet connection would be advised. I'd highly recommend streaming, the question is, as always, how much $$$ are you prepared to spend for the convenience and the journey?
  7. Further information: PrimaLuna Dialog Premium HP Integrated With original EL34 and KT150 tubes Excellent condition - no marks, dents or scratches. Presents “as new”. Functioning perfectly Original packaging and accessories. Purchased from Melbourne dealer late 2018 - Receipt provided on purchase for warrantee purposes. There are many great reviews on this amplifier, too many to list all, here’s a sample https://www.stereophile.com/content/primaluna-dialogue-premium-hp-integrated-amplifier https://upscaleaudio.com/products/primaluna-dialogue-premium-hp-integrated-amplifier Paired with the right speakers this could be the end game tube amplification for some. The 8 X KT150 tubes included in this sale cost $1100 alone - they’re only a few months old and have had little use. Indeed the amplifier itself has had little use. Would suit a new buyer. The 2 front driver tubes have also been upgraded to the highly regarded Genalex Gold Lion 12AU7’s Complete package. Photos: Note: grill cover is unmarked. Unfortunately some dust shows in some photos. Photo of cover included after I wiped it. Bugger!
  8. Yes I agree, usually you only hear the negative or problems often from users with very convoluted setups or extreme usage. I've used Room before with a Bluesound Node 2 and had very few problems. I found Roon pretty cool to use.
  9. Hi C658 owners, I've been thinking of getting a Roon subscription. Can anyone comment on how Roon and the C658/BlueOS get along? I've read Tidal MQA and Hi Res files are problematic. Does anyone have actual experience they can share? Cheers
  10. There’s no digital out on the NAD c658 so the Gieseler wouldn’t be much use.
