  1. Parasound Halo/Hint 6 Integrated. Plinius Hautonga Integrated Accuphase E-460 or 470 used if you can locate one. Electrocompaniet Integrated new or used. Dream amp...Gryphon Diablo 120 or better still 300. My preference is from bottom up. Good luck with your search.
  2. You sure? https://www.bluesound.com/products/node/ The NODE 2i has enhanced dual band Wi-Fi which provides best-in-class performance even in crowded airspace. With state-of-the-art Bluetooth® aptX® HD, the NODE 2i can easily support 24-bit streaming directly from your phone or tablet, as well as transmit studio-quality music to Bluetooth headphones and speakers. High-end DAC technology built into every Bluesound Player allows the NODE 2i to decode and stream MQA files in all their lossless glory.
  3. For picture quality, me thinks Sony has a very slight edge due to their processor. For day to day usability LG Web OS is the best out there - just try their magic remote in shops like JB or HN.
  4. When you work in IT, standardisation and adhering well practised industrial protocols it the way to go. IMHO.
  5. Well, I just replaced my ISP router/wireless modem thingy with Ubiquiti systems. The new systems consist of Edge Router, PoE switch and a wireless ap (access point). My NBN lead point sits in my garage and currently where the wireless ac is. We get somewhere between 3 to 4 bars on our tablets and Macbook pro up on the third flood townhouse - that is passing two concrete walls. To give you an idea, here is an Iphone 7 wireless signal strength: Setting up is not that hard for the wireless AC (just set network name/pw). But the Edge Router does take some Googling, thanks to our funcky NBN systems mandated by Malcom But once setup, you don't ever need to touch it. Ubiquiti stuff is build solid for mid to large size networks. In the future I planned to integrate a couple of PoE security cams. The entire systems allow me to scale up and have reliability which my ISP router couldn't provide.
  6. Noice👌, very noice 👌 👍.. Buy it with the upmost confidence, a true gentleman to deal it. GLWTS, Chupa
  7. Do explore what you ears preferred as much as possible. As @buddyev has mentioned (and I do concur with the man - has great taste in music ) you do need an gutsy amp to drive the B&W 8 series. If an integrated with a inbuilt DAC is a must, what's a better time to try Hegel with 7 days return policy. https://www.stereo.net.au/news/hegel-launches-7-day-home-trial-program-in-australia
  8. 2.1 yeah, not many amps with that feature. Parasound integrated as @att23 has mentioned. As long as the amp has pre-out you should be good to go. Eg. Hegel 390 or 590. The other integrated amp with sub outs that I can think of is the rather pricey Gryphon Diablo 300.
  9. From the top of head, try Parasound Integrated or Hegel Integrated. For for seconds try the classifieds section. Both have AV bypass of memory serves me right.
  10. You shoukd wait for the revised Contour 60i. https://www.dynaudio.com/home-audio/contour-i/contour-60i
  11. So, I looked at the pricing and it is clear as mud. Correct me if I am wrong. Two options: USD $9.99/mth (billed annually, that would come to USD $119.88/year) USD 699.99 (so call lifetime billing) Can someone please explain to me what is "lifetime billing"? Here is the interesting blurb on "switching to lifetime billing": You can choose to switch to lifetime billing at any time. Just visit your account page and select the lifetime billing option. If you switch during your trial, you will be billed $699.99 when your trial ends. If you switch during the first 30 days after a charge for a yearly subscription, you will only pay the difference, $580.11. At any other time, you will pay the full $699.99 and no full or partial refunds will be granted for prior payments. What does lifetime billing entitles you to? Life time of bills from Roon? Or one time only payment for a lifetime subscription? What about future upgrades? Does it cost me extra?
