  1. In your situation It might be worth upgrading the DAC first. Your amp seems good but having had the M1 DAC myself (with a MF A 3.2 amp) upgrading to a Klein DAC (version 1) made a huge difference over the M1 DAC. A used Klein could set you back $400-600 (Klein I - Klein II) which would presumably cost less than an upgrade on the amp side.
  2. Wow you just reminded me I used to have the same Sony cassette deck back in the 70's. GLWTS

    Great DAC. I'm keeping mine until I go GroB (which is the only logical next step). GLWTS bargain price
  4. Can only see them due to the high quality of the pics! Amazing looking Units. The sockets on the Pre alone look in pristine condition and show what high end gear should look like. GLWTS
  5. I still remember when you could walk in to JB's and see these stacked up. Should have made an investment! GLWTS

    Yes on carpet. I've never tried it without the blocks tbh. It's not state of the art of course but in a smallish listening room the bass sounds full and pretty controlled. I use the bamboo blocks for all my components so made sense to pop one under the sub

    I have mine on an Ikea bamboo chopping block. No spikes.
  8. Nice unit. GLWTS and the 'Knife'

    Thanks mate. I will take the noise factor into play more seriously now. This would probably be more of a potential issue when listening to the Dac as opposed to 'working' but it's a good idea to get that sorted before I push the button.

    Thanks @Tweaky One use for the PC could be Cubase which requires a certain level of graphics support (Graphics card with DirectX 10 and WDDM 1.1 support ). Not sure if the i7 handles that but it certainly handles up to 4K playback. Noise definitely seems to be the enemy here, so thanks for the additional insights

    Thanks for the advice. Although I'll need the PC for running other hungry applications I may be able to dial down the specs a tad. I will have to look into the server situation as this seems a better path to go down, my only caveat is that I don't have a wifi set up and may have to do a bit of learning around networks / servers etc. I currently have over 4TB of hires files on an external HDD running on JRiver through the PC. There has been a lot of talk about a PSU for the Klein so I may look into that as it seems to be the best bang for buck improvement from all reports. I have some interfaces between the dac and the usb out so that part of the equation is fairly sorted for now. Cheers
