I've got an Arcam Alpha 8 Amplifier, and a couple of old 80's wooden speakers - I think they are Technics from memory.
I like the sound, but as housing has got more and more expensive in London, I've found myself squeezed into smaller and smaller spaces.
I was having a bit of a re-arrange last night, and I wondered if technology had got to the point where I could get the same, or greater sound quality, from a smaller set up?
I had a look at the Sonos 5, and although it seemed cool, it looked like it was primarily for playing music from phones and other similar devices - which isn't quite how I use my existing sound system. It also seemed a bit proprietary, which I was a bit cautious of. Especially as it's quite pricey!
At the moment, my primary input to my sound system is a pair of stereo cables from the back of a sound card (Soundblaster ZXR), but I have on occasion run audio from the TV and other devices through it too.
I think what I'm saying is that it would be great to have the option of using it wirelessly with my phone (Android), but that's not my primary objective.
What I really want to do it set myself free of the 3 fairly large pieces of kit, and the lengthy speaker cables that have to be tucked away and are irritating to move around.
Does anyone have any suggestions? Am I misinterpreting the Sonos? Are there Sonos equivalents out there that might better fit my needs?
Would really appreciate any advice anyone has - I haven't really been following this stuff for a while, and it all feels a bit alien now!
