RE: Ready for the Streamers?

If you go with a Uniti 2 it has 70 watts available but have a look at the link below, a 1 box solution in the similar price range but better spec and more watts on tap and good supply of them aswell nearly doubling when halving the load. Not sure on the possible combination with ProAc though, demo would be needed.

It does look a very nice bit of kit and different versions are available if your not keen on the brushed ally look, personnelly all "hi-fi" should be  Smile

UK distributer for the T+A ~ E Music Series Receiver are Acoustic Brands Ltd [ABL] They distribute to a few retailers around the UK, the link below points to them, hope there's one near you ESP, if not may be worth a day out, the snippets of reviews if found on-line are very favorable  Cool

RE: Ready for the Streamers?

Grrrr!  I have begun to discover why streaming from my laptop is not going to be an option if I store my music files on its capacious drive.  I have Western Digital external drives x2 (older 1Tb Elements models) and a 2012 vintage My Book Essentials.  All work fine thus far.  However...the nifty s/w that goes with this last item is a problem; in monitoring the laptop it seems rather too keen on accessing the hard drive...a lot!  This is causing repeated interruptions in the music as I listen.

I disabled Windows Defender (when I realised it was duplicating the efforts of my main security suite) and then Roxio's drive monitoring services plus WD's programs.  Solves the problem every time.  But what a faff!?!

If these services interfere with discs outside the laptop I am going to be rather miffed!
