    Default Hi from Wisconsin

    Hello. I've been pretty obsessed with music my whole life and have recently started to get interested in making it sound a little nicer.

    I have a very modest setup but want to continue making some upgrades. I mostly stream from Bandcamp and have a decent vinyl collection.

    Here is the rundown of my current setup:
    Turntable - Sony ps-lx250h
    Receiver - Sony str-d460z
    Bookshelf speakers - micca - mb42x
    Sub - Dayton audio - SUB-800

    I use a Etekcity Wireless Bluetooth 4.0 Receiver Audio Adapter to hook up any devices for streaming.

    I also own:
    Receiver - Harmon/Kardon 730
    Turntable - Pioneer pl-516

    I want to get my Pioneer turntable running next. It needs some attention but is in very good shape. I would also like to do a side by side comparison of my receivers. The Harmon/Kardon does have some issues with some of the inputs.

    Also I am wondering if a DAC would help between the Bluetooth adapter and the receiver.

    That's my story. Looking forward to learning more.

    Hi Nathan. Welcome to AOS.

    If you want opinions, just find the right section and ask away. The 'Digital Expressions' area is the place if you want advice on DAC's.
