    The Beoplay A2 connects via Bluetooth (lossy) and i imagine a line in. The H9s connect again via bluetooth (lossy) and line in. Andy_js is correct in that you would be wasting your money as both products above particularly the A2 are not Hi-Fidelity devices and dont have stereo separation (A2). Most of the money of the H9s goes to materials and Noise cancellation. A phone will suffice but If you have an iphone the problem is confounded by the fact iphones dont support Bluetooth APxt which has supperier

    For sure Some vinyl produced in the last 20 years have been pressed from digital sources. However A few niche record labels like the ones I posted are re-issuing vinyl sourced from analogue master tapes. These companies pride themselves on pure analogue releases and are marketing their records based on having no digitisation throughout the process. https://www.musicmattersjazz.com/the-sound-s/45.htm I just realised the solutions to my problem may potentially lie with older speakers assuming they

    To clarify the question of listening to re-issues. These are NOT digitised version of the originals releases. In my posts you will see I named all the studios that re-issue from ORIGINAL master tapes and create ANALOGUE vinyls. These releases are considered equal and with the new SRX vinyl material being used to again produce ANALOGUE vinyl from ANALOGUE masters the noise floor is lowered. https://www.musicmattersjazz.com/the-sound-s/45.htm - Have a read for the doubters out there http://www.bluenote

    [quote user="BEOVOX141"] [quote user="Epsilon20"]It just wanted a chance to experience analogue sound[/quote] Then as said several times, the 50 is NOT your choice! And its NOT about how or where you do digital conversion or what nots! The 50 processes the signal in ways you cannot do in an analog system, and thus the sound will NEVER have the properties of analog sound! Its a bit like asking for the CRT TV experience on an OLED screen, No matter how gorgeous the OLED technology

    MM - I did originally try and get a Beogram Turntable for 3 months looking on ebay, speaking to dealers and private sellers but i there were so many models in various conditions so couldnt decide on which one to get. Plus there was a concern that i would struggle (have to pay an arm and a leg) to get replacement styluses and cartridges for these vintage and/older models. I then went the opposite direction to look at Pro-ject and Rega turntables and they were perfectly good but didnt like any other

    The word "Audiophile" seems to be an emotive word for some as it brings up thoughts of non B&O fans lambasting our tastes in loud speakers. Personally I I would never get a set of speakers that required a rack with amps, pre-amps, power conditioners, mono amp for each left/right speaker as honestly it would look a mess and want speakers that fit into my life not the other way round. And yes you would be continuously trying to balance the Hifi racks if I chose different components from

    Thats a fair question MM but I only went looking for specs to learn about the speakers that stand proudly in my living room. Normally when you buy non B&O speakers accompanied by amps its about the specs your getting for the money. The 50s are a premium speaker but they are sold on the basis of ease of use, musicality, the mechanics of the rising tweeters and design. I actually want to know whats under the hood after paying the asking price. In my case I was going to start a new hobby collecting

    Don't get me wrong the way B&O have balanced the tweeters, power application and design are top notch. BUT the DAC and ADC are quite old and outdated. The 50s Analogue inputs which also include the power link connector uses a Texas Instruments PCM4220 Analogue to Digital converter. The Digital to analogue converter, which I now question what the purpose is since its a digital speaker is the the Burr-Brown 1798 DAC which is a 15 year old DAC. Texas Instruments bought Burr-Brown http://www
