    I'm tempted to get a Audionote Jinro next, always fancied one, couldn't afford to buy a new one and would take some serious saving of the old pennies to get one

    Assume you'll keep the DAC / transport though due to SACD limited catalogue? Am not even convinced it's a better format than good redbook / CD, and then at the contentious 24bit / 96kHz (I think the masterings are different in themselves to 16/44.1) you're hitting the same measurements as SACD albeit with heavier handed methods than massive oversampling of SACD / DSD.

    Sell almost all my hifi. Just put down a deposit for a Devialet ex-demo from a main dealer (40% discount), will be upgraded to the new 250 Pro and there is a free UnPnP/DNLA upgrade for 2016 upgrade orders. Going to the store to sort that tomorrow.

    So will be able to sell monoblocks, phono amp, passive pre-amp, DAC, streamer, its external PSU and loads of cables. Thats 7 boxes to get rid of, replaced by a wedge of aluminium. That will leave me with a turntable, its external 33/45 power supply and a P3 power plant. With a bit of luck the whole thing will be a cash neutral change.

    That's the same ploy me and my brothers would use to get our dad to upgrade the telly too. Good to see some things never change. He never needed much convincing either.

    She's priceless. With a Devialet she might be able to use it, it frustrates her she doesn't know how the hifi works as she always likes to have music on in the house, or R4.
