Hi folks, 

 

My setup is a Yamaha WXAD-10 (Steamer) to Rega Brio R (50 watts) to Focal Aria 906 bookshelf speakers. 

 

Firstly I like the sound, but am I under cooking it with the Rega Brio, should I upgrade to the Elex R (90 watts) for example? The music I play is generally on the quieter side of things, acoustic, jazz, etc. 

 

The Yamaha streamer serves me well, its the base model in the Yamaha range. I am not convinced that upgrading to a Bluesound Node, for example, would have major improvement in sound, noting I am playing Spotify. 

 

Any thoughts? 

 

Thanks in advance. 

 

Cheers, 

 

Jol

In theory probably yes moving further up the model range and cost.

 

Also depends on how you listen and your ability to discern differences in sound quality.

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.

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.
