  1. Post some photos and then we can tell you more.
  2. It is actually better that many others have. It is good as you have it. There is one possible further step you may have to follow. Firstly: A variation is that you could just have it on the SSD, but that would remove the convenience as well as the backup the NAS provides More importantly, and that is a an issue we all have to consider: What is your offsite backup?

  3. No worries Daz - to me it makes sense. I may be wrong, but as far as I understood you had an Offramp 4. Unfortunately in Computer/digital audio things have moved on since that was released, e.g. Offramp 5 and also Sotm, Rendu and many other products.
  4. This is tongue in cheek, but so say you 😆 Wish I can get so simple.
  5. Excellent post! I have read that some people can hear the difference between WAV and FLAC, but I can't. When I started with computer based music I went the FLAC way as it required less storage. Now people argue that storage is cheap, but the main issue for me against WAV is the metadata issue as you have said. I use FLAC at compression 5.
  6. No idea re linux, but I use DBPoweramp - can do ripping and batchconverting into various formats at the same time. So I have 3 libraries: wav, flac and MP3. The latter is used to make cd's and usb drives for car use.
  7. Welcome I like being used, but that means you have to know what to look for. Buying at HN means you can pay it off. I hope that there are members here that knows the different sets of speakers and give better advice. I personally either like 2 (2.1) channel or 5.1 My advice is to go to the shops e.g. HN JB HiFi people selling stuff and listen to what you can afford. Buy what you like.

  9. Welcome I like your "handle", that is how I felt when I thought about all the options. Post some info please, as in budget, what you want to buy, what music you like, the size of your room, etc.
  10. Hi Peter I have the older "brother": the Auralic Aries Femto, and it has beaten many alternatives. As I have mentioned, if you are Ok with the spending it is all good. I have to apologise, I did not mention that the Auralic products only work with Apple products. (Not sure if it is impossible to control via Android or if there are work arounds).
  11. psycho acoustics 😈 Joking - enjoy the journey, and thank you very much for sharing. I have learned a lot via your posts and love your photos.
  12. The Altair G1 is better. No offence, but based on personal experience ( and on forums, feedback, etc.) Cambridge Audio is Mid Fi. Auralic is Hi Fi. The question/problem is the price difference between the Cambridge Audio and the Auralic. The age old issue of diminishing returns. I would suggest that the G1 would be about 20% better.
