Any help for a newbie? Yamaha A-S500?
After many years in the wilderness (That is, my office with my desktop and speakers), the time has come to put a decent sound together in my lounge.
It's my first foray into any serious audio since I was a kid with a Marantz seperates system, so i'll be starting out at the budget end of the market.
I'm considering a Yamaha A-S500 paired with some Monitor Audio BX2's. It is as recommended by what hi-fi and appears to be largely agreed with.
My music library is all on my desktop, in aforementioned office, so the next problem is how best to connect this to the amp?
I've seen that there is Apples' Airport Express system, would this work as a wireless solution?
Also, when I play music out of itunes through the hooked up speakers it sounds ok. However, when I play through Traktor Pro via my Numark Omni Control it sounds much much richer and heavier. Does this just mean that the soundcard in the Omni Control is better than the one in my desktop pc? If so, should I get a better soundcard put in the desktop to improve the source?
Any advice would be very much appreciated....??
