Re: New Portable Digital Player QA361

Thanks Pearse, I'm looking forward for the test! ;-)

Thing that got me the most with the QA361 is that you connected directly to the amps (no preamp), same as I use my Wadia DAC.
Plus, there is no PC, or PC tweaking, no USB chain.......can't be simpler!

Re: New Portable Digital Player QA361

A quick report on analogue out which for me is the greatest attribute of this unit. No sign of the silver wired 3.5mm to RCA cable so far so I ordered a cheap cable off Amazon and got it last week https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B015PZ7QO2/ref=ppx_od_dt_b_asin_title_o00_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 I ...

Re: WANTED - Budget amplifier for Quad ESL 57s

Unfortunately my Quad dreams lie in smouldering ruins. All was fine until I showed my wife what ESL 57s actually look like........ Gutted to miss the opportunity to own such a wonderful set of speakers but grateful to Tony for being so understanding. You should show her how the double stack look, t...

Re: Computer Audio Blasphemy, nige tries Another SD Card Player

According to this mega thread linked below, the only SLC storage that sounded much better than the rest should be 4GB Panasonic micro SDHC card http://www.usaudiomart.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=1172 Since not all SLC chips are created equal, we better identify those NAND chips with ChipGenius before...

Re: MQN

I had to reinstall the 2012 server on my SATA DOM and now I can't get MQn to play!
I keep getting this message (see picture):

Then yesterday put on music i knew well and it sounded so much better so not sure what is going on yet given my AC supply seems to be...

Re: It didn't explode....... YET (aka niges amp)

Add to this the sound was astonishing and before i went down and listened to the amp close up I was trying to figure out if i changed anything and realized I added an SLC SD card at the weekend and I was playing music off this. Pearse, are you saying that the SLC SD Card sound better than your SLC ...
