As the main Star Wars saga concludes, I came across this blast from the past (see photo which for some reason has rotated 90deg).
This was very much in keeping with the cheeky Linn & Naim marketing at the time but timeless in its message nonetheless.
The main difference for mine is that the Source these days starts at the mastering/file quality, pre the turntable / CD player.

This is in excellent condition with no visible marks. Manufactured in 2015, it has the latest software installed and is Roon ready, as well as being able to stream music from Spotify or a network server.
It has the remote etc as well as the original packing so easy to ship.
Very easy to set up, I just plugged in the ethernet cable and it worked from the get-go.
Bought this last week from a fellow SNA member. Just wanted to try it while waiting for a component I have on back order.

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
