    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.
