@rantan its just got to be better than road noise.

LOL.

In my case it is a close run thing. I am actually not sure which is preferable.🤣

Sounds like you need one of those fancy silent electric cars and a custom dynaudio car kit.

I've got an electric car and the acoustics of the inside of a car are no better than a dunny so I only listen to background music even with an allegedly good hi-fi and no engine noise.

When I come to Melbourne this year, you will need a good talking to😀

 

(It wasn't only Noddy who was naughty)

It's proof of manhood to have lots of buttons. How else can you distinguish yourself from all the audio girlymen

For playing records:

 

1 - Press 'LP' button on remote. (This turns on the controller with the correct input selected, and turns on the speakers)

 

For playing streamy stuff:

 

1 - Press 'Aux' button on remote. (This turns on the controller with the correct input selected, and turns on the speakers)

2 - Press On button on Control:10

3 - Press to select album

4 - Press 'Play All Tracks'

 

Cheers,

Jason

Press "Play Music" on Harmony remote

Press Play to start 

 

Looking at investing in Sonos for multi room and family friendliness so the process may change soon

Turn phono pre, turn speedbox on, turn 3 amps on (bass, mis and high)

For the car, ignition on and I just enjoy the mid engine noise of the MG F :)

Pretty much the same as Jone5y,

 

1. Press ‘music’ on harmony remote

2. Open music app (Spotify or NAS music file for local files)

3. Press play

 

Added steps for vinyl

1. Turn on pre

2. Select output

3. Turn on TT

4. Place record

5. Place stylus

6. Press start

 

Digital it’s a lot more skipping and searching once I have started. With vinyl I play a side beginning to end every time so it more efficient on that side of listening ☺️

Approximately 90% of my music listening, which is most of the time I’m home, is streamed from Apple Music via an Apple TV 4 these days.  My usual preamp has inbuilt DAC and HDMI input.  Pressing the menu button on my Apple remote turns to preamp and screen on, and the preamp trigger out daisychains to the power amps.  So one button, then press play - all with the one remote.  The source and preamp DAC aren’t the final word in Audiophile sound, but the amps, speakers, and subs are excellent and so the overall result is still very good along with exposure to an enormous range of music at my fingertips.

 

For critical listening I use a better source (and, for digital, DAC) and preamp, but the difference is not THAT big and the convenience and range far poorer.  A noticeable difference, of course, but no so much as to make my day-to-day listening solution insufficient to bring enjoyment.

I leave Turntable power supply and pump,  phono stage, Tablet and DAC on.

Otherwise,

1) Preamp

2) left Monoblok

3) right Monoblok

Leave for an hour, then listen. Turntable only.

Cold weather, play an album side, then listen.
