    Cheers Alan/Marco,

    I was using phone to type and with predictive text and fat fingers it all went a bit nonsensical!

    Thanks for the correction.😄

    The two I use are both from Flasback's Premiere range and are custom in that they have non-standard terminations (Flashback are happy to customise a cable at minimal extra cost). A metre cable of Premiere is about £43.00 but most of their cables are half that price. Flashback are particularly good if you are looking for Naim or Quad leads but can do pretty much anything.

    I don't remember exactly - there were a couple of DIN plug terminated leads for Quad equipment and an attenuating lead for use with CD players. I'll look at the Flashback site to remind me and get back to you.
    Have you listened to this month's choice in the Album Club?

    I use a Witch Hat Audio 'HatPin' (HP5) Snaic replacement between my Naim pre-amp and my modified Naim Hi-Cap power supply - works very well and sounds noticeably more open than Naim's Black Snaic - cost is £119.99.

    Ryan Sound Labs make superb replacement boards that massively upgrade the internals of Naim 'shoe box' pre-amps - prices vary depending on the variations chosen (can also add remote volume control). Avondale Audio and Neil Jadman also make alternative board replacements that are different but also work well.

    Lossless streaming.

    My own experience with downloading started with Audiogalaxy in 1998, taking 5 minutes to download each song, listening to it though computer speakers. It wasn't HiFi, but it was revolutionary for music discovery.

    As time went on I got a HagUSB, which was the first time that computer audio started to get close to using CD transports. More time goes on, we now have broadband, lossless streaming, and asynchronous USB - my Halide Bridge finally made me stop using mechanical transports. Finally, computer audio can get *better* results than using a CD transport.

    Now, I spend £30 a month for unlimited streaming of millions of songs rather than spending my time skint and in record stores! Nowadays, I slowly build & rebuild a core collection of higher quality physical media, which has suddenly become a lot cheaper on CD.
