    Hi Simon , I have been told just that , on the prowl for the right preamp now , though I must say that theyíre impressive with just an iPad up their Ar..

    Whilst the buyer was clearly showing his ignorance on these speakers, a Bluetooth adaptor could usefully be used to make the link between old tech and new tech. Whilst obviously not 'hifi' a Bluetooth connection can be surprisingly good. Logitech do one (with outputs of both RCA and spdif) with good reviews. Plenty of others as well.

    About 3 years ago I needed to make a cable free connection between an iPad and an 'old' system and used a cheap August Bluetooth adaptor. I was surprised how good things sounded.

    On another note I believe MK is the city furthest away from a sea port. Or am I getting my pub facts all wrong?

    You are correct about MKís location.
    I have considered the Bluetooth idea and I may well go ahead and try it.
    I demonstrated the M2ís to another enthusiast at the weekend , he was shocked when the hairs on the back of his neck stood to the occasion... with an iPad up their arse !!
    Wish I had never sold my caiman as I reckon thatíll do them justice

    Several years ago (early 90s) a mate at work was returning to the USA offered me his pristine hifi system for about £500 comprising Meridian actives (piano black finish), about 1,000 lps, a preamp and a TT. I declined due to space considerations. One of my biggest mistakes.

    Can't recall what the preamp and TT were but they were quality items.
