  1. I haven’t compared bluetooth versions, but when I looked into buying the bludento reciever, reviewers etc suggested the better Bluetooth codec helps music quality and signal strength. If your source device doesn’t support aptX codec then the Bluetooth receiver reverts to lower quality so the signal quality is limited by your source. I use iOS devices which sends an AAC signal to my bludento and to my ears it sounds as good as a cable connection.
  2. I bought a Bludento BLT HD Bluetooth receiver from amazon and it’s great. It supports aptXHD if your computer sends that? Otherwise it reverts to the standard Bluetooth signal. Has a good dac in it too.
  3. I was also looking for a Bluetooth receiver so decided to try the Bludento BLT-HD, after reading this thread. I have just hooked it up directly to my Rega brio amp and playing music from a little Cayin DAP and have to say that I am very happy. For $120 au its a great way to get Bluetooth into my system.
  4. I'm wondering if anyone on this thread can direct me to a good version of Amazing Grace. Sadly my father died recently and he had a wish to have amazing grace at his funeral. I'm looking for an instrumental version as well as one with lyrics

  16. This may be a silly question? I have an RCA cable coming out of my amp that I sometimes plug into a portable dac . When the cable is unused (i.e. not connect to the dac) I don't unplug it from he amp ( its too hard to get behind the amp in my cabinet) and just leave the cable in my cabinet with the RCA connectors not plugged into anything. Is this bad practice and are there covers for rca plugs when your not using them? I know there are covers for the rca outputs at the amp itself but what about covers for the end of a cable plugged into the amp?
  17. How about the yamaha np s303? It pretty much does what the wxc50 does but has a screen and looks more like a conventional hifi component. Cost around $700
  18. Would the Yamaha wxc50 work for you? Cost is around $400 and you can put your files on a Usb directly into the device. You do have to control it from a phone, tablet or computer though. I haven't got one but considering to get one.
  19. I don't believe it has usb output. Just usb input. I too would like that as an option.
  20. Well, the player is now randomly skipping, warmed up or not. It's under warranty, so I'll send it back to the service agent again to look it over. I feel your pain Anne Marie Robertson, Rega are not generous with returns and will only do returns within 14days of purchase, thereafter it must be sent to a service agent for repair.
  21. I have a Rega apollo R CD player that is relatively new and of late it is skipping and sometimes not initialising cds. It has been serviced and the laser was replaced. It worked fine for a few months and now it's skipping again. What I have noticed is that it only happens when the player is first turned on and not warmed up. If I power it up and wait for about 30mins it seems to works fine, but if I play a cd straight up it will inevitably skip and not read discs. Not always but often. Has anyone else come across this issue and/or shed some light on possible causes?
