  1. Yes of course. The Musical Fidelity Nu Vista I mentioned in a previous post would be excellent (like the Nu Vista M3 I experienced in the UK) but the new models are so pricey, I think about $16K
  2. This is it. I think this would work: https://www.jaycar.com.au/speaker-high-level-to-line-level-converter/p/AA0482
  3. No sub at the moment, but I've had a B&W in the past and it needed a pre out to work. There is a device you can get that attaches to the speaker terminals and has a pair of RCA outputs, but I don't know what they're called.
  4. Yes, you're right, but I'm stuck with them. What's that saying about being able to choose your friends.....?
  5. Hell. Why would a company like Marantz not put pre-outs in their higher end amplifiers?
  6. No it's working, but it's in New Zealand and has been appropriated by relatives, so I need something new, but not a universal player.
  7. But just looking at the Marantz higher end amps and neither appears to have a pre out for connecting a powered subwoofer. Could this be right or have I got it wrong? https://www.qualifi.com.au/product/Marantz/PM-KI Ruby/70108 https://www.qualifi.com.au/product/Marantz/PM10s1/60220
  8. Looks like I'll have to seriously revise my budget. Why is quality audio so expensive?
  9. Friends in the UK have a Nu Vista (M3) integrated. I've heard it and it's sensational, but it harks back to the early 2000s There's a new model, but very pricey.
  10. So is Marantz that much better than Pioneer? Just asking because I'll also need a new amp (preferably integrated) so maybe a Marantz bundle might be the go?
  11. Here it is RRP $8,490. Then there is Marantz flagship SACD player SA10s1 at $10,510. WOW!!!
  12. It looks very interesting Ian, but the Price: £3,500 would be a bit of a hurdle. I'll have a hunt around for the Australian Marantz site and the local price. Thanks.
  13. I'm currently looking around for a new SACD player. I have been using an Oppo 105, but I no longer need a universal player, so I thought maybe a player in this price range ($3.5K) would be suitable. Listen to mostly jazz, vocal, classical and world music. Any other suggestion greatly appreciated.
