    Looks like you moved the proarts to the speaker tops. Any issues with vibrations?

    How is the wifi connection to the Vena, especially when pumping lossless stuff to it? Or perhaps you are using USB from your laptop?

    not moved them Ed; they have been there for quite a while. Quad doesnt have wifi; just bluetooth. so an hd transmitter or usb, coax or tos. Thought it had wifi but i was wrong. not tried bluetooth as of yet, but its just a receiver. cd quality tho; will get to it.lol

    early days Gary. its different. will give it time, and also want to get cables made when up to it, so i can hear its power amp section properly. no rush tho, and as a pre its very good. very handy too. Along with the little lappy im using for music it makes for a nice setup(its got little on it bar the music progran). hard to beat my power amps tho, even if im the only one that thinks so i believe a couple of valve monos would be ideal tbh. my speakers are very neutral so will like a bit of valve. unlikely to find any in my price range tho.

    OK the psu is back from Alan, s ministries. Had to do some alterations to the earthing arrangements of deck and arm to suit new amp. Not a beautiful bit of work but all I can manage. Nearly collapsed lol.

    Anyway the mm stage of the quad vena2, is very good. This is great news as I can keep box count down.

    Very pleased with the Vena's inbuilt phono stage. quiet and good gain; detailed and a good soundstage. Not saying its better than the Emotiva, as of yet but I would safely say i doubt i will miss it much if at all. Great score that; a £200 plus phono stage in the integrated just makes it even better vfm.

    A big thanks again to Alan(Firebottle) for fixing up my psu. its much smoother and speed doesnt jump about etc. Better connection of the din too...Top Man.
    Also to Hi Fi Dave for the Vena. Quick and excellent service as you would expect

    Great news Grant - really glad that worked out well

    Still musing wether to upgrade mine ... but a few more variables to consider that the new model still doesn't cover in my case

    Have you had a chance to try the Nuraphones with the upgraded HP output yet?

    That is another variable that might just swing it for me..

    (the Nuraphones are bloody fantastic BTW - thanks again for the code for those )
