  1. I have to take back my last comments. Just connected up a PrimaLuna Evo 100 preamp to the S300. On comparing the Bluesound Node 2i to my Qutest, no comparison, Qutest has so much more detail now. I learned not to voice results based on small sample counts.
  2. Notable only when the files are MQA in comparison to my Chord Qutest the 2i was brought out more detail with the set up Im using at the moment. Your right, listening environment, position and that annoying ring from industrial deafness changes perspective.
  3. Using Tidal I found the an improvement in sound quality from from my PC
  4. Hello mff, I have tried speakers in front of the whiteboards then moved them back then moved them in front of the white boards and moved them back. Still im open to rip thing out like the kitchen sink and reposition, trying to avoid time consuming moves until I have tried multiple options Went to SWAMP today and picked up $900 of sound treatment panels/bass traps and speaker isolation pads...only just started placing them around in and can hear reasonable improvements already. There should be a new preamp turn Wednesday, PrimaLuna EVO 100, keen to have the space sorted beforehan

  9. Thanks, that makes more sence, I'll look into it.
  10. That choice is easy, anything with alcohol from 1pm onwards, sleep/pass out, wake up at 11am Also not wearing anything blue or green when walking in the city after an old firm game Actually not wearing blue or green at anytime walking through the city unless your really angry, full of meth and carrying a Stanley knife Grew up by Hampden Park, find football boring as and the neds even more so, but do enjoy the architecture in Glasgow Thanks
  11. Thanks Pete, I have been considering putting in some type of sound treatment, just not sure as to what. There are a lot of hard surfaces, I did hang a few curtains/materials up and noticed a difference. I have moved this room around that many times, and brought the speakers forward, in, out.... As you suggested I will go with sound treatment....Any suggestions? Thanks for the compliment on the space, it was intended to be located on a rural block of land and be able to be fully locked up...Land isn't that easy to find when you start looking and considering tra
  12. Hey, See images below of space and setup. Missing... The sound quality that I get from Tidal is good but CD quality or slightly better, the detail isn't there. Spoke with local HIFI shop re options and they suggested I try a streamer with MQA ie Bluesound Node 2i, so I went that way. If I can get more detail from the MQA unpacking then its worth the $900. I'm told it wont completely unpack the format but should sound much better. Also realise that there are limits to what you can achieve with said products. Stuart
  13. Thanks. It was suggested that MQA decoding would improve the sound quality as the Qutest wont decode MQA .......will see when iinet puts the in VDSL2 in 2 days? Not quite sure what you mean by reclocking (with quiet DC Power). I built the PC 8 months ago and has a Corsair HX750 power supply, Ryzen 9 3900X CPU, in a BeQuiet case. I may be missing a step? Was hoping not to replace the speakers just yet, also find it hard to audition in the shop with other gear and its going to sound different again in my office. Office is two converted (by me) 20ft h
  14. Hello All, Growing up in Glasgow in the 80s most people that cared had good/reasonable stereos, turntables were the source and you bought what you could get new or used with the aim for better sound. Now in Australia building a simple system, finding a lot of conflicting information re components and matching, the usual expensive and unhelpful bias from dealers and websites. At the moment listening goes PC with Tidal Chord Qutest Cambridge CXA 80 (used as pre amp) Cambridge CXC for CD PS Audio Stellar S300 power amp B&W 703 S2
