Been offered a 170i for £80. At the mo am using a apple dock. Is it worth it.
Also would the m1 dac be a good match for this if i bought it?
If not whats a good match for the 170i
The Wadia have some very interesting, proprietary, technology.
Think this was Wadia's cheapest ever item at around £350? If it's in good nick, working as expected, then I'd be over it like a rash. Apparently excellent from memory.
Onkyo TX-8050 / Tannoy Revolution DC4 / Marantz SA7001-KI / Apple TV 3 / Sony PS3 320Gb / Denon DVD-3930
Looks brand new with all connections. so you think i should consider it?
Well, at the very worst, you can sell it on for a profit. I'd go for it, but don't let that sway you.
Go for it. I pair mine with M1 DAC with excellent results.

Heard it with a Stax SR 007 and some alien looking dac costing 1000 pounds.....just after I heard some Avantgarde Uno's with an AR setup. Detail levels and realsim were within 95% of the AR setup.

absolutely a good deal, provided the item's not worn badly. i used much less expensive solution to a dac and the change in sound already a good leap.
Poor people get boring, too.
