    I hear he's flogged all his tat and gone for one of these new-fangled all in ones:



    With its own dinky speakers. Thanks to modern technology they are designed to sound best sat on the floor behind the couch, possibly with a vase full of flowers on them.

    Made me giggle 'dat.
    Might even sound half decent given a (re)listen!

    Remember coming home from school going to my mates house and playing Kings of the Wild Frontier on the radiogram whilst his folks weren't home!)
    Sounded terrific!

    No, it would be shockingly poor - but we knew no better back then and thankfully good music does not need hi-fidelity in order to work its magic.

    That music centre certainly brings back some great memories.

    Older cousin had the exact same one that he got from the catalogue

    He added an additonal pair of speakers, Wharfedale Dovedales I think they were.

    That thing sounded sweet to my ears back in the late '70's - happy days and looked damn nice too, I loved it

    ....or you could have had a Hacker, with (matching front) extension amp to make it stereo.
    Much sought after nowadays!

    Note the sliders! My first amp had those -forget (at the moment!) the name. (It WAS 1970!)

    Enjoyed my M2Tech Young Dac for a good few years, was an upgrade to my Rega dac I had at the time.
    Before that it was a couple of Stan Beresford dacs.

    Sold the Young here and bought a PS Audio Directstream, great sounding bit of kit and unusual in that it runs from an FPGA, not a traditional Dac chip.
    As such, its software programmable and its creator Ted Smith writes new improved firmware which PS Audio gives away for free.


    All the connections you could ever need, including a direct ethernet input, which lets you use it as a streamer for Roon, Spotify etc.
    Pretty cool.


    Big deal for me here was I had fitted an i2s output board to my Oppo 203, which lets me use the dac's best sounding connection.
    Here's me testing the output into the dac - all good.


    With the free software upgrades which get more and more out the dacs hardware this one will see me out, no desire to change love how it sounds.

    Nice looking DAC but it does annoy me when DACs only have one example of each type of digital input.
    I want multiple co-ax and TOSLINK inputs!! What's so hard about that?
