  1. Did you get the BluOS module for the C388? If you did you'd definitely be well set up. Enjoy.
  2. @Indie Hi-Fi Any news on the MAY consignment to AU?
  3. I just read two reviews on the ELAC Adante AF-61 Floorstanding One says they lack bass the other suggests plenty of bass? Nothing much is cut and dry in this hobby when it comes to reviews. https://www.stereophile.com/content/elac-adante-af-61-loudspeaker https://www.theabsolutesound.com/articles/elac-adante-af-61vr-loudspeaker
  4. There's a discussion on ASR regarding this point. https://www.audiosciencereview.com/forum/index.php?threads/youtube-the-big-measurement-listening-mistake-some-hi-fi-reviewers-make-soundstage-real-hi-fi.25185/ There's both + and - either way.
  5. I took possession of my Aries G2.1 over the weekend. Very happy with the unit. Sounds great out if the box, easy to set up (Apple user) and seriously solid build. Can't comment on a comparison to the G1 however this will probably be the end game streamer for me so I justified the cost increase.
  6. I've probably been to every Hi Fi store in Melbourne at some point over the years, and bought stuff from most of them. CAV used to be one of my go too places despite the cramped showroom space. The service there has always been attentive. However a while ago I stumbled upon Geoff from Hey Now Hi Fi and haven't looked back. Great guy to deal with and his store/office/apartment in St Kilda is a pleasure plus it's on the way home from work. 🙂
  7. Thanks @tarkus Looks like a work around that could do the job! I'll give it a go asap.
  8. Thanks for the suggestion. I'll check it out. The other option I'm considering is a PS Audio BHK Pre-Amp (with triggers) - this would open up the streamer/DAC options considerably.
  9. @Boxa Thanks for the heads up. I had seen these. However I’m not sure they suit my application. Used as described the product would power on the source from the amps. My amps don’t have a remote and are close to floor level (inconvenient). I’m trying to get the the source to power the amps on via the source remote. Maybe I’m wrong but I don’t think it would achieve what I’m after. cheers.
  10. You can’t stream Hi Res wirelessly to any DAC/Streamer. Unlike Roon, Tidal, Qubuz. The limitations of Airplay 2 make Apple High Res a fail IMO. It’s either a stuff up or a bit of marketing hype (Apple tend not to stuff up). Having said that Apple’s move to lossless is to be applauded.
  11. I've been looking at one of these as an upgrade from the NAD C658. Quite a but over the OP's budget I know. https://www.heynowhifi.com.au/collections/avm/products/avm-ovation-sd-8-3-sd-6-3-streaming-preamplifier I would certainly have settled for a Lumin T2 or Auralic Vega 2.1 however no 12v trigger on those models rules them out for me.
  12. Hey there Adrian, I’m still enjoying your “old” Salons very much! These things must be remarkable. They look stunning. GLWTS.
