Alrite - I am looking at Music streamers, in particular the
- Cambridge Audio Stream Magic 6
- Pioneer N-50
- Rotel RT12
Does anyone have any experience / views on these units?
I've got some Cambridge Audio 5.1 speakers, they're flipping brilliant. No idea about the streamers tho, I'm no audiophile so I just stream music to my AV amp.
If you get asked about bi-amping, don't punch your interlocutor in the face.
Ta for the replies.... I am interested in how people get on with them on a day to day basis, as opposed to the magazine 30 minute tests
My hifi speakers are bi-wired but only because, when I bought the system 10 years ago, it was just regarded as the thing to do at he price point I was at.
Haven't got a clue if it would sound the same without bi-wiring and cba to find out as I'm happy with the way it sounds now
Any will do the job fine - the music will likely be compressed so it will be a poor quality sound anyway.
Was looking at buying very similar setup based around the stream Magic but read lots of compatibility issues. In the end I've just ordered a Naim Unitilite. All in one system from a well respected brand for only a tiny bit more than I was going to spend on separates. Also a really good app for controlling the Naim via Ipad and an android app is in development.
When I went for a demo I was blown away by the sound quality.
What really gets on my tits is the different sound levels between tracks
And the amount of drop outs I get if streaming via Apple TV ..
