  1. I'm loving my Yamaha RN-602. Has all the features you need, just can't comment on how it stacks against your Onkyo
  2. Further information: Was bought for my aged mum a couple of years ago. She barely used them and then bought BT headphones and a smart TV 🤷‍♂️ Fantastic condition, just a little dusty from disuse. Great for non technical users who can't navigate menus. I'd rather they had some use before they end up in the tip. Photos:
  3. Item: Integrated Amp with phono Price Range: Up to $150 Item Condition: New or Used Extra Info: Trying to setup a basic system to get my friend into HiFi. I have an old Akai AP-B20C and Wharfedale Delta 90 3ways, just need an amp with phono to get the juices flowing. He's out of quarantine on Sunday so I'm hoping for a local pickup.
  4. Anyone got thoughts on how these would compare to my Kef 104aB? Especially interested in your opinion if you can justify why I should have both sets of speakers.
  5. Yeah, unfortunately I'm not keen on paying YT for what I got for free from Google Music.
  6. @Bunno77 Any ads? Are you subscribed?
  7. Beautiful bit of gear here. Perfect starter amp at a fantastic price.
  8. Hi All, With Google Music discontinued, I've decided to go the pi server route. It's all a wonderful new world to explore and learn, however I'm keen to get some shortcuts from you wise chaps. I'd like to set up a pi4 at my work desk. With a DAC, remote, and maybe a touchscreen. Any circuit boards/HATs/cases that would be recommended here?
  9. @ollie_08 That would be helpful if the services were comparable or if YTM even remotely fit my requirements. As it is, I'm planning to go off line and run an m2 stick with NAS backup to move my library around and add to it.
  10. @hazzac181 While the uploads haven't changed, enough has that it is not suitable for me anymore. #1 is that I can't play music on my phone with the screen off or if I'm using another app. For the rest: https://www.androidpolice.com/2020/06/08/google-play-music-to-youtube-music-making-the-switch/
  11. I picked up an AKGY50BT a few years ago on clearance for $150. It's still my measure for all other headfi. Sound, build, fit, battery, features, ease of use are all fantastic. I prefer them for casual use over my focal elegia. Close second would be my new Noble Audio Falcon TWS. Great bit of kit for reasonable price. Just wish they fit my ears a little better.
  12. @Cardiiiii True, I hadn't considered it because I hate Apple. Might have to take another look
  13. That's kind of why I'm against the NAS. Maintaining a Raid configuration to prevent data loss when hard drives fail, and backing it up to the cloud is too much time and effort for me.
  14. @JukKluk2 I'd rather not invest in NAS hardware and redundant backup drives and the time to maintain them, when I can use a cloud based service instead. I guess I was hoping there was another google music service that allows me to upload my own music files, organises them and does album covers etc and is free. Damn, google music was good.
  15. Also The Record Store and Mittagong Antiques had a few bins with a reasonable range of rock and classical
  16. I haver plenty of vinyl, and far more music uploaded to Google music. With YT Music taking over soon, I'm not happy with the offering. My general plan is to get a DAP and rotate music on it. I'm just wondering if there is another cloud upload solution similar to Google Music, or if I need to use Google Drive maybe? Or do I need to go down the route of multiple hdds and backups in the home... My main objective is to not subscribe for a music service to listen to my own files.
