    I have newly-acquired Khorns, and FedEx has en route a custom-built ST-70 crawling toward me. Laptop to Schiit Modi is my primary source. An old Lexicon DC-1 is my Preamp. My taste in music is broad, jazz, blues, rock/progrock, classical, bluegrass, country old and new - not a lot I don't like. And hi, all.

    New here and finding the software running this site very, very confusing. When attempting to fill my profile a home page address is damanded. I have no home page address and no intention of acquiring one so cannot register my profile. I'm also wondering why when I open a thread the oldest posts are listed and there doesn't appear to be any method I can find that alters this to open threads with the latest posts.

    Welcome :)

    Don't worry about adding a homepage, the profile section is primarily full of optional fields - most people leave them empty. As you click on each forum section on the homepage, it should list all threads in order of last post date - so the newest are at the top. If you click the "new posts" button in the top right corner of each page, it should show you any new and unread threads.

    Hi

    I've just joined the forum

    I like music to be challenging like in Wire magazine.

    When I'm feeling lazy I'll listen to more top twenty stuff like Carly Rae Jepsonon

    Recently I've been listening to Charles Lloyd, Trish Clowes and Australian psych jazz band Tangents.

    Hi,

    I am Chris, running a Cambridge Audio cxc transport, REGA DAC, Chinese Little Dot MKIV valve preamp and a QUAD 99 power amp into Q Acoustics speakers.

    Took a while to get this balanced with the right cabling. I like all music except Reggae and Country (no offence!). Not into streaming yet - I do play lossless files from my PC sometimes but I prefer CDs somehow.

    About 18 years ago I went digital-only and am not finding it bad at all really.

    Hi. Welcome.

    I just I would share some thoughts on DACs. I have only had 3 but my latest is a real gem. I hardly believed at first a DAC could make such a difference. I started with the CA DacMagic and was happy for a while until a friend brought his Music Fidelity DAC round - there was a difference which I hadn't expected. So, I bought one too. Now I have a second hand REGA DAC and this has transformed things. REGA has a newer one now, mine is the old one. I think your ears get trained when you get into all this stuff cos I really don't think I would have cared 2 years ago. I won't be swapping out the Rega for a while. As much as people always say: go and get a demo - it is difficult to tell in a demo situation what is best. I have to wait a week to attune to it. I either like it and keep it or go back to the old stuff with a sigh of relief. I hear a lot of good things about Roksan gear.

    Hi I'm new too.

    While on the subject of dacs, I've mostly used the Cambridge Audio Streamagic 6 in recent times.

    But a spanner in the works has arrived in the form of a Marantz Cd273 with the 16bit tda 1541 giving me a bolder and crisper sound, not lacking subtlety though.

    Currently listening to the Monkees, Miles Davis KOB, Lydian Collective (who?) Vinho do Porto etc etc.

    The rest of my kit is dominated by Naim 282 / 250 with Rogers LS4A speakers.

    So a bit of old and new. It makes for great music and enjoyment. Which is what it is all about, I think.
