  7. You could try a Denon. We have the DRA-N5 which runs Spotify, Bluetooth, airplay, internet radio and has a sub output. We run them into Q Acoustics 3020 speakers and an old Yamaha sub. Not high end hifi, but still enjoyable.

    Acoustic Solid TT Questions

    I previously owned an AS turntable. To deal with the arm mount you could get an internal collar made to reduce the diameter of the hole , made up from a local engineering shop. There should already be a grub screw and this will then need to be a bit longer to insert through the collar to hold the arm in place. As for the belt, the local distributor is Absolute Hiend and Boris should be able to obtain a belt for you.
  9. Yes it is a wonderful detailed, neutral and powerful amp. The phono stage in it is excellent too and was better (wider, more detailed, faster) than two separate phono stages I had with price tags over $1.5k.
  10. As a previous owner of a Glider I agree 100 ohms was too low and flattened the sound. I found 470 as the sweet spot.

    Dynaudio Audience vs DM ranges Speakers

    Hi. The Audience is superior, it's the earlier version of the Excite. I've had the DM2/6 and the audience 52 bookshelf variety. I don't know a lot about the technical differences but I felt the Audience sounded more refined than the DM especially in the top end and it cast a better image.
