The pursuit of good sound has resulted in many changes to my 2-channel system over the years. Simple curiosity (e.g., loudspeaker designs, amplifier topologies) has been a big factor in a majority of these changes. Presently the system looks like this:
I got rid of my well-appointed Mac mini and took a chance on this streamer. Never looked back.
No introduction needed. Used with Apple’s Lightning to USB Adapter & Deezer HiFi.
This little device reclocks and regenerates the USB stream from the iPhone 6. It works wonders for the iDevice.
Passive switch box with 4 inputs and 2 outputs.
A Chi-fi tubed integrated wonder of an amp. Sounds a whole lot better than it’s price suggests.
Louis Chochos high-efficiency single driver design in EKO Ash Tweed. Coherent. Fast. Addicting.
Isolation stands for the loudspeakers. They work.
Surge protection. No MOVs.
Racking. It’s nice.
Yes, of course.
Located on an Oyen Digital MiniPro hard drive attached via USB to an Apple AirPort Extreme. I use wifi to stream music sources to the Node 2.
