Hi all, So I have been running the below for as long as i can remember in my study, and have been happy so far. However, I have now moved into a bigger room and have access to a pair of Krix Equinox, So have retired the Cambridge S30s.. Now the problem arises, that King Rex can sometimes struggle with the occasional times I like to listen away from the PC at louder volume levels.. Cambridge S30 KingRex T AMP/PSU Asus STX/PC My question is which of the following would you suggest to replace the King Rex with? and what would be a good sonic fit for the Krix (I will miss the King Rex NAD 3020 Denon PMA 30 Yamaha WXA- 50 As you can see I am looking for a small desktop style amplifier. The Yamaha is the current pick due to price and features, it also gets good reviews over on ASR.. Thanks for your time Dan

I'm tossing up between these 4 turntables and can't find a whole lot of info on them? I'm a newbie so would greatly appreciate any advice
Hello everyone! A little while back I purchased a pair of Kanto YU6 Active Speakers + a Kanto Subwoofer and found the sound quality to be quite decent. I'd like to take my system to the next level with a preamp, in order to bypass the speaker's phono stage and give myself additional features such as a DAC, networking options, optical inputs etc. I was also thinking that the preamp would be a long term investment e.g. pair it with another component such as the RA-1572 Integrated Amplifier and a new set of better speakers (down the line). So it boils down to this: For the time being, is it a silly idea to pair an active pair of speakers with a Preamp? Would I be better off selling my active speakers and just getting an Integrated Amp + passive speakers? Thoughts?
I am seeking advice on whether or not to get better power cables. Nothing in my system has a ground pin: Preamp: Arcam SR250 Monitors: Acoustic Energy AE1 Active Subs: B&W DB4S DAC: Allo DigiOne Power conditioner: iFi PowerStation Mains Power: Dedicated 20amp line Interconnects: Mix of Wireworld Luna 7s and Blue Jeans. Everything except the Allo is powered using standard three pin IEC-13 plugs. Therefore I have a floating ground setup which is apparently good? Is there an advantage in upgrading to better quality EGM power cables? I assume the EMI/RFI screening would help the interconnects as they are not balanced?
I have my CD player hooked up to my integrated amplifier - works great. I'd like to add a DVD player & TV into the system. As I don't have a AV receiver, and only a 2.0 speaker setup, I would like to see if I can stick with my integrated amp. In order to have the sound from the DVD player go through the amp, and the picture go to the TV, is a HDMI splitter the item I need?
