Hi All First post and Im sooooo excited! A bit about me. I used to be really into Hifi up until about 15 years ago but kids, career and life got me side tracked. So I have about 15 years of catching to do. I have been reading this forum and watching heaps of youtube in the last 2 months in order to catch up. Although its been invaluable, experience is often the best teacher. I have a dilemma. I like the convenience of integrated, but would always go for sound quality over all other criteria. Im thinking of upgrading my lower end old NAD power amp and Rotel pre-amp. There is a great looking Auralic Polaris for sale which is a great all in one solution imo. The alternative might be Schiit Vidar, Schiit Freya with Schiit Modi 3 (which I have). The Schiit Modi 3 is pretty good but nothing amazing in my experience compared to whats in my old Rotel pre. Is Schiit over hyped or am I expecting too much for a cheap component? Does anyone have any experience with comparing something like the Auralic Polaris to something like the Schiit pre/power amp? Can a Schiit Vidar/Freya/Modi compete with the Auralic in sound quality? The Auralic would most probably have a much better DAC than the Schiit Modi 3 I guess, but what would it be comparable too? Are amplifier Class A/B (Schiit) vs Class D (Auralic etc) sound signatures relevant? Im looking for smooth highs (not to forward) and plenty slam in the bass. The amplifier is to drive some Martin Logan Motion 35x and / or Monitor Audio Silver 8 Floor stand speaker. I may change to Buchardt s400 / Kef R3 in the future. Source will be streaming TIDAL. So many questions I know but it would be great if some one could guide me. Thanks a lot
Hi all, The current setup is NAIM Nait driving two B&W CM9 floorstanders and NAD T762 (soon to be replaced) driving the center and surrounds ( B&W) Oppo 105D being used as a pre amp, connected to NAIM via balanced o/p for music (CD, SACD, Bluray etc) Need a streamer to be used with NAIM ( maybe via 105D ) Thinking about getting an Auralic Aries or NAD C658 (with Dirac) as the streamer. Leaning more towards the C658 as Auralic don't have much of a presence here in Oz? ( for after sales issues) What are your thoughts? Cheers.
