I've just invested in a Synology DS213+ NAS to store my vast digital library of MP3, WAV and FLAC files and I'm now looking onto the next stage of my setup which is a HiFi to do it all justice.
I'm hoping you guys will be able to help steer me in the right direction based on my limited knowledge and musical tastes.
I think I'm right in assuming I will require a streamer rather than a DAC as I don't want to have to switch my PC on to access the files and the models I've looked at based on What HiFi reviews seem to be the Marantz NA7004 and Pioneer N50.
For an amp I was considering the Marantz PM6004, Rotel RA10 or maybe even a Roksan Kandy K2 if I can cobble the extra money, if people think it will benefit my setup.
Speaker wise I'm really in the dark at the moment but I like my bassy music predominantly, but at the same time I do listen to a wide variety of music and so wouldn't want some of my other tracks to be drowned in bass.
I was wondering therefore-
1) Does anybody have either of these streamers and can comment?
2) What amplifier would you guys recommend?
3) What speakers would match?
4) Is it ok to mix my setup or would the Streamer and Amp be better suited from the same manufacturer?
any help would be much appreciated please.
