    Default Information regarding digital amplifier

    Just wondering if anyone has any experience of this product. The reason being* that I am considering replacing my system with a simpler didigtal solution. In simple terms, retain my Apple airport, add this amplifier and possibly a music server whatever that may be. Although I may retain the CD player and use coax connection leaving RCAís for Apple.

    The reality being* that I donít really have the time anymore for Lp listening and the system is just not getting* used so a few hundred lps possibly 500 may be getting sold with Tt etc. And an amplifier.

    The nuforce seemed to fit the bill in usability and available at respasonable cost. I may rip all my cds again to flac ,currently Apple lossless so CD player may be redundant as well.

    Any suggestions will be appreciated.

    I'm not aware of any digital Hi-Fi amps.

    Unless you mean an amp with built in DAC. Not an idea I particularly like, as the DAC part will be 'old hat' long before the amplifier section ceases to be useful.

    Class D amplifiers like the Nuforce are analogue devices.

    Well amp purchased as it was a good deal and less money than I have spent on a cable in the past.
    So partly reference I think guy Hayton thread re JRiver. What is in non techie terms the most straight forward way of ripping cds to flac. Predominantly JRiver and dBpower amp are there in the conversation but from a practical point is there a faster way of actually ripping cds or is the simple solution a pc with a large amount of RAM?
    I have a Samsung laptop which has windows pro and little 3lse on it as I use it primarily for work emails that’s about it.

    Lyngdorf ?
    Current kit :
    Music libray (FLAC) on IMac or streamed via Qobuz. Fed wirelessly to Raspberry Pi and into Lyngdorf digital bi-amplification. This handles room correction and an active crossover to a pair of Lyngdorf corner woofers and modified Final electrostatics.

    Red marks comment so I can convert Apple lossless to flac. That would be a sim0ler solution.

    yup, just use jriver or another.. db is quicker i think.... will do bulk conversions.. remember to keep a copy of the current rips first so if anything goes wrong you still have them.
