  1. Hi, I upgraded from using Audirvana on a Macbook Air, I haven't had any experience with the famous Node2i. The most obvious improvement was a real lowering of the noise floor. Instruments seemed to have more 'space' to 'flesh out' and the decay became a tad more natural. Improvements in overall dynamics were less pronounced, but still apparent. But in all honesty, I couldn't speculate on how it compares with the Node2i.
  2. Hi Con, I haven't come across NB Cables before, so thanks for the suggestion. Considering some of the other advice, I think I will be increasing my budget beyond entry level upgrades like NB. I'll revise my original post now to include a price range and required length. Thanks again for reaching out. Hi Init, thanks for the link to Cullen range. Looks like Mick (075Congo) seconds your suggestion so I'll have a good look at them. It is a little more than I was hoping to spend but might be worth trying to get my hands on a set to try them out. Thanks Mick, looks lik
  3. Hi gents, thanks for the comments and suggestions. This was very much my thinking, but I was interested to see if someone would come out of the woodwork with a great matching budget cable, one can only dream ! I'll be increasing my budget and checking out some reviews of midrange cables. Thanks again for the suggestions
  4. Thanks so much for the vote of confidence re Mogami, Dan. Will definitely keep it on the list.
  5. Hi Bill, I have your boutique copper cables on the short list already ! Thanks for reaching out.
  6. Hi all, I am running a Halcro MC20 with one of Chris Daly's passive preamps. I get a lovely full sound running balanced between the 2, but am using a very basic XLR cable. I'm looking for suggestions on an upgrade. Cables need to be minimum 2.5m, 3m would be perfect. In price range $200-500. I prefer copper to silver in my limited experience. Thanks all, David
  7. Very glad to hear the pricing will be coming back It's a great feature
  8. Hi Bodge, I sent you a PM earlier; please check the time stamps ! Sorry Naggots !
  9. Trusted seller (and good guy all ‘round!), buy with confidence. GLWS
  10. Really enjoying the podcast you sad bastards, keep it up! An episode on matching components - impedance etc, wouldn't go a miss
  11. Seems like you wondered onto the Penrose Staircase hahaha. I'm still looking for a door..
  12. Hahahaha, I had exactly the same thing! Literally swapped DACs and seconds later started skipping...
  13. Hahahaha, enjoy it while it lasts! In a few days you'll be reassessing cables or power, surely ! ?
  14. Hi Ravin, Welcome to the SF family ! I recently purchased a pair of old Concertino's to do up a small listening room for my old man.. I was blown away by the musical nature of the speaker and impressed by the bass range running off a Marantz PM500. Best listening was near field as well, without much toe-in. I do notice the lack of 'air' in recordings though, while they are super sweet, they are perhaps not the most revealing speaker.
  15. That makes me hopeful, thanks DSD! It wouldn't be an issue, but I can't find this album anywhere else haha
  16. Glad to hear I wasn't the only one! This started Saturday afternoon for me and was still an issue as late as 7pm Sunday last night. I haven't tried today though, so I am taking all of your words for it that it will be working when I get home for a listen! Does anyone know if there an official Tidal news page I can check for known issues next time?
  17. Hi Rich, thanks for the message! I'll inbox you now
  18. Item: opera consonance ella baby power cord Price Range: 120 Item Condition: New or Used Extra Info: tried one, now need one, haha
  19. Hi all, I am looking for a network streamer in $1-2k price range that has a USB output and full function Tidal integration. I am currently running a Macbook Air and Audirvana with USB output to DAC. I use the Audirvana Remote on iPhone and iPad, as it lets me search for songs from my HD and the Tidal library together, from my couch. In the Audirvana Remote app, I can add to Tidal favourites, read artist information and browse new albums and playlists. The DAC matches the sample rate from Audirvana, so it changes to 24/96 by itself when I select an MQA track in Tidal.
