Not sure really. Although I've spent many years listening to pretty much just CD, albeit through not brilliant equipment, I am not really a big fan of it. I really miss playing vinyl and tape.

I must have a masochistic streak, I seem to enjoy faffing about with stuff, rather than taking the easy option :grin:.

I'll probably just get myself to Richer Sounds eventually and listen to a few of their offerings around the £200-300 level. I want to get the analogue side sorted first. I'm not in any rush for the moment, just researching the options.

Oh, and thanks for the welcome messages :greetings-waveyellow:

Hey William,

I use a 15 year old Cambridge Audio CD5 which i bought new from Richer Sounds. With an AP20 it does everything i want.

Maybe worth checking out some of CA's current CD players.

Not a sales pitch: but I have found CD more enjoyable since using NVA amp's, not sure if it is because of the passive pre or whatever.
CD still second to my vinyl, but I can listen to a whole album now without wincing!

By the way, welcome to the forum.

Welcome to the forum. You might wish to consider ripping your CD collection to FLAC and getting a decent DAC which will not cost the earth. I found that ripped CDs and streams sounded better than my CD player, but I did not have NVA amplification at the time.

Sonore microRendu/McRU PS, Chord Mojo, NVA P50SA, NVA A80sMk2, NVA Cube 3s, NVA LS6, NVA TIS mk2, NVA SSP mk2, Rega Planar 3, Denon DL-110 cartridge, NVA Phono 1, NVA BMU, Grado SR 325e headphones.

Hi to everyone,

My name is Norbert and I'm from Austria.
I've been into this audio hobby for a long time (more than 40 years) mainly to enjoy listening to various kinds of music. As I haven't learned to play an instrument (besides playing air guitar every now and then), listening to music via a dedicated system has become a hobby over the years.

I didn't know about this forum until some weeks ago and honestly have to say, I'm not into forums so much (not enough spare time, I guess and too much into my beloved music ;-)) but around a year ago I had a very positive experience with one of RD's products (the NVA LS6 ls cable) and so I came across this forum.

As it looks to me on a first glance, there is a lot going on here with regard to our hobby! :-)
Nice to meet you!
Norbert

Nice to meet you too Norbert.

What equipment have you got ? Just being nosey :liar:

I suppose some of us spend too much time on forums :shhh: so i guess we are honoured to have you if you don't have too much spare time.

Lots going on here, no slurping, shilling or :Bllocks: though :grin: :grin: :grin: :grin: :grin:
