Another approach would be KEF LS50 wireless / active. You'd need a phono stage but that's about it.
Oof, just been reading about those! That looks like a great solution.
Yeah, I'd go down that route/something similar.
Glad to see this thread exists, as I've just become a card-carrier.
I've just inherited my Dad's Sansui AU717 and my Grandpa's Sony PS-LX5 turntable, and I've paired it with some Kef IQ5s and a Yamaha Music Cast.
Sadly, the turntable isn't behaving well, anyone got a recommendation for a repair?
Yo! How's it going dude?
You still dishing out hugs?
I'm good man. Long time! You still near the Electric Shaver building? Still dishing them out. Life sucks without hugs.
Nah, I'm in Marylebone now - moved away from the previous role 😁
Glad to still hear you're on board the hug train, are there still SE drinks to deal them out?
Hello @se1derful - I still reminisce on the time that I missed the last train home and you graciously took me in for the night. I must have been like ... 18 then. Sccaaaarrry.
Aren't you still 18?!
Sadly SEs is dead.
Long live SEs.
We should try do a one night revival.
Keep your eyes on the thread.
I am twenty six :-( Having an existential crisis over here.
Fuuuuuuuck! That must make me...thirty three!
Good memories (if a little hazy) from those, what are you up to at the moment? Saw from another thread you were in NYC?
What's even more wild is that means you had that swag flat at the age of 25.
Yep, working at a school in NYC. Still working in IT. Sometimes ride a bike!
What are you up to? If you're at liberty to tell me publicly, that is!
Still got it too, couldn't resist keeping the bike storage (a shade under 10 at the moment).
I'm working in tea at the moment, still in e-commerce, much less exciting than my last job for sure.
How you finding NYC? I always fancied a punt living there, but could never stomach the insurance/health/tax stuff.
The Sansui in all it's glory
Bought a spare chromecast audio as they've stopped making them. Haven't tried the Yamaha you're using @se1derful , how do you like it? I'm in the same boat, old hifi rig(s) that I've added a streaming device to.
No kids yet then.
lol. pretty, but very poke-able.
It seems pretty good to me, and easily able to hear the difference between FLAC/Spotify/Qobuz variants of the same song, so I know it's not all bollocks.
However, it's expensive compared to a Chromecast, and the method for finding/playing FLAC files via the Yamaha app on my NAS is fucking awful. Going to experiment with Twonky later to see if it's better.
The Spotify/Qobuz/Tidal integrations are pretty much flawless, and you can turn it on remotely, which is awesome.
I am going to shift this PS Audio Sprout100 if anyone is interested. Cheap!
