    Crossover upgrade, when?

    Haha, maybe mate. If they have electrolytic caps in the crossover then I would change them 100%. If not then probably not although the choice is of course yours

    Surprised they use electrolytic caps. Have you checked?
  3. @shawnwes it'll need some signal running through it before critical listening. Especially those inductors

    @christosd your Ayon is further up the food chain by a model I think so who knows but worked a treat for me. The CD07 is my first Ayon product but I like it a lot. In time I may look at something better than the F1 but won’t be anytime soon as I have to spend some $$ on the vinyl rig 😉

    The Singxer F1 has arrived and I had a listen for a couple of hours tonight. The difference is not small, in fact its huge. Dead quite and a big improvement in SQ. Everything snapped into focus, dynamics are there etc. For the price it's a real bargain in this instance. I think any similar device would have done the same thing so this is not a plug for Singxer products. Thanks for all the advice and particularly to @Nada and @katattack74, you guys hit the nail on the head!

    The gods are smiling as a Singxer F1 just popped up in the Classifieds which I managed to grab. Maybe not the final solution but will give an indication, at the very least, I'm hoping of SPDIF sounding better with the Ayon. Will report back in a few days

    Yeah, it is a pity but I appreciate the idea. Thanks for your advice.

    SUN Audio SV-2A3 SET Valve Amp - new build

    Great thread. I'll be watching with interest. I heard your amp at TD19's a couple of years ago. Sounded very nice 2A3's are wonderful valves and if you can find a good used U52 rectifier the changes are dramatic

    Next Steps... Cartridge?

    @Tait0 did you notice the Ortonfon Cadenza Red in the classifieds a while back. Just a heads up

    Indeed I have. I'm leaning towards spdif and an Audiophileo. Will be a little while until I can afford one though. Something similar may pop up in the classifieds in the mean time.

    Thanks for your input. Hopefully I can borrow one and see if it makes a difference. Close to CD quality would be fine with me. It's a cracking CD player and I love the Ayon sound.

    There is USB noise at times which is a problem. Dunno why it's intermittent. Basically everything sound-wise is worse via USB. Loss of dynamics, sound stage, separation, leading edge etc. The Ayon does have a SPDIF input as well
