    Hello all! I could use some direction with a next step for my audio setup. I have a Fosi V3 (which I like), driving two JBL Northridge E20s (which I also like). What I would like to do is add Bluetooth. I know one option is to sell the V3 and buy another chip amp with bluetooth. However, I...

    Replacing a tired Marantz CD6000OSE

    Hello, my 21 year old Marantz cd player is starting to behave funny: some disks won't play, the tray door won't open half the time. I though that maybe it's time to look for a replacement. And that is where things got a bit complicated. First I thought of using a cheap DVD player as a...

    4K BD-Player to replace PS5 and CD-Player

    So currently I'm thinking of replacing my PS5 and my CD-Player (Marantz CD5005) with an 4K BD-Player. The reason is that I don't really play anything on my PS5 anymore (nether really did much) and that the disk drive is pretty loud playing movies. So it's currently only a loud BD-Player and...

    Anyone find it far more rewarding listening to real physical CDs on a CD player, rather than using FLACs? And why do you find this?

    I've spent the last couple of years ripping a lot more of my CDs (around another 1000 classical and jazz CDs) to FLAC. However, I sometimes wonder why I bother. I've re-discovered in the last months that is it far more enjoyable to just play the original CDs on a CD player, than sending them...

    Review and Measurements of ONKYO DV-SP503E universal player (2005)

    ONKYO DV-SP503E universal player I bought this universal player in 2005 and it is still working. It is based on cheap TI PCM1742 D/A converter. It works now only with original CDs (does not read CD-R well), reads DVD and DVD-A and has troubles with SACD. So I restricted my CD measurements to...
