Amp/DAC combo. Nice.


I have one connected to Wharfedale Diamond 9.0s and works a charm with digital inputs. i'm using USB but also has co-ax and toslink so perfect for a Chromecast Audio and BubbleupNP/Foobar2000, Weakness is that there arn't any analogue inputs or headphone out but for less than £60 a steal. So for less than £200 you could have the 220s, the VX2 a Chromecast Audio, which in my opinion offers a solution rivaling if not beating a Sonos system, espicially if you own your own media.

Otherwise a shame but you'll find some other speakers soon and they will be worth the wait


I made a rough cardboard model with the dimensions from Tannoy's website and unfortunately we didn't think they'd look right, the TV stand is in the corner so if you can imagine there's only a "triangle" space for the speakers and although I'm OK for depth, these are too wide

I actually bought some Denon bookshelf speakers for a bargain £40 from Amazon this week intended for my rears but they don't have a way to attach them to stands so I may swap my stuff around and try the Denons at the front just placed on my TV stand, and move my current fronts (Boston Acoustic A23) onto some speaker stands and use them as rears.

I just purchased monitor audio silver speakers and my God the difference between them and my old Kef q7 speakers is night and day.




I don't think it's the same thing. They're completely different speakers. The Silvers do have really good bass response for their size. I found their soundstage to be less than I wanted. They're great for bass heavy music.

Cabinet size usually makes a difference to sound.

I also love the look of floorstanders and have heard they're a nicer sounding quality than book shelves, I missed out on the recent mx3i missions at £150 so am tempted by these.I realise I'm ranting here just hoping someone who knows more than me passes by with their thoughts and/or conversation !

As long as the power supply is of high quality you're good to go - and PiDACs with decent chips start at a fiver.

​I should add as well that this is a very cheap way to get into tweaking, as you can buy boards with every chipsets under the sun from China for next to nothing, and swapping them doesn't even need driver configs.

Only problem comes when you want to add other digital sources. Then you need a proper DAC - but just buy a decent S/H one for that.

I own a high end DAC a Chord Qute EX and a £12 PhatDac from PiMoroni easily competes with it. I personally would NOT buy this DAC, you can do just as well and dare I say it better than this DAC for peanuts. All you need is a Rasp Pi, a casing and a PhatDAC, it's all on here, for less than £50 you can thrash the pants off this deal >https://shop.pimoroni.com/products/phat-dac?utm_medium=cpc&utm_source=googlepla&variant=10458523655&gclid=EAIaIQobChMI2o7Y2_qF1gIVyrftCh2utQMsEAQYASABEgLVg_D_BwEOne caveat!

A good DAC shouldn't colour at all.

​In practice they all do though.

There really shouldn't be a need for expensive DAC units any more however. The chipsets cost only a few pounds, and unlike the earlier DAC chips do not need expensive buffering amplification or high end power supplies to run at their best.

That said this unit will almost certainly sound better than the DAC in a typical AV amplifier or Blu-ray/DVD unit, and massively better than the nasty DACs in a lot of phones. I still wouldn't pay more than 50 quid for a Chinese-built DAC with a good chip though.

Tda1541A S1 for me though the digital filter SA7220 is not good with poor stopband attenuation. This is a 16bit setup. Unfortunately there aren't really many digital filters that will work with that chip.I ditched the separate DAC as although you have separate power supplies the system clock is recovered from the source. It really needs to be generated at the DAC and sent back to the source.

I would have to listen to this Cambridge Audio DAC. Modern DAC's have come a long way though and are cheap or you can go the other way to something like Chord with their FPGA where they build custom DAC's.

Could anyone from personal experience recommend a review site they trust?


I wouldn't recommend trusting any of them. The lure of kick-backs is such that I'd be dubious toward the word of any reviewer.

Personally, I think you're better off crowdsourcing for opinions. Wordy and objective user reviews are a handy source of info (obviously, skip the 5/5 "I just bought this and WOW!" ones), as are enthusiast forum threads. Spend a good hour or so reading up on your intended purchase, and overall, you'll get a good insight into the pro's and cons of each device, its pitfalls and quirks (which are often something that a lone reviewer will just miss altogether, whether they're being paid for the review or not), and how it differs from comparable products. Do keep in mind though that audio is a subjective thing, and if you buy something which really doesn't fit your tastes, there are return policies and regulations which can enable you to pick something else.

it was an Equatech 10metre £10 cable from Home Bargains the cable was an 8mm version, not the more usual 5mm, i posted the deal because i definitely saw a difference when i plugged it into the sky box and also the PS4 and samsung 6500, though not true in the technics freeview HDD. my cables were Philips or Belkin £4 cables and have stuck with them because i believed no difference would be found. what is strange is how we all become so fixed in an interpretation of what we consider to be the truth. when i posted the deal offering a first hand description of what i found it was not liked because it goes against common and "proper" knowledge.
I do not discount john bentleys interpretation, that may have been true of what they found, it does not mean that all cables will always be the same forever.

The cables themselves are called 48G, they're designed to accommodate all the extra bandwidth of the higher resolutions and Dynamic HDR. The connectors (or rather what can travel to and from them) on devices that can handle that bandwidth are HDMI 2.1, not the cables. Whilst typically they're designed for HDMI 2.1,they're not labelled as such. It may seem pedantic, but one of the big drawbacks of consumers getting confused over cables and connectors is that cable manufactures rush to label cables with the new HDMI upgrade version and charge a premium for that label. It's unlikely they will be widespread confusion with the 48G cables, as most of us won't need them for a while, but you can bet that once HDMI 2.1 is common with devices the cable manufacturers will begin to sell HDMI 2.1 cables!

The standard speed cables are rated up to 1080i, but many of them can handle 1080p, the high speed cables can usually handle pretty much anything but they're not guaranteed to cope with the extra bandwidth of UHD BDs higher bitrates. So your short cable might work fine, but anything longer may struggle, so if you're running cables through walls or have extra long lengths you'll want to look for premium high speed and like the other cables they're available with and without Ethernet.There is a 48GB cable, but the ones listed above are fine for the average consumer, there isn't any need to pay vast sums for cables, especially if they're certified as there will be zero difference in picture quality, but some cables with have a better build quality, which is useful for long runs, flexibility and if you're unplugging them frequently. The rule of thumb is try your current cable first if you have a UHD BD player or 4k device, but if you're going through walls invest in a certified cable for peace of mind. You don't want to be going back in if you're cables can't handle the bandwidth.There are no HDMI 1.4, 2.0, 2.1 cables, the numbers refer to the connections on your television and devices



Aren't 48G cables technically HDMI 2.1 cables? They're not required for basic usage, but they're needed for the higher end specification it offers. The connector specification isn't changing though you're right there.

I agree, a poor quality cable will impact on the picture quality, I have had some odd problems caused by a poor HDMI cable. However it is really snake oil if your paying a lot for a cable. Agree that UHD will need better quality cables as they are moving and the word is moving a lot more data hence the need for a cable that can handle it. Nothing wrong with having one or two decent cables about that you trust to help with fault finding..... :-)

To be fair, once I mentioned the date on the email the store manager was pretty good about and organised for me to shipped one at the agreed price from the warehouse. So no complaints overall.

Only issue now is that I've realised that the unit can't handle the latest 4k specs, so isn't playing nice with my Xbox. But the work around is using optical out and plug the Xbox direct into the TV. Once 4K media becomes mainstream I may need to upgrade, but this is a good wee starter unit.

I need some advice. I am new to the whole world of surround sound and have recently bough myself a 55k tv and would like to get a good performing 5.1 system. I have bought this deal, so thank you @Bobbajob

I have seen another system, the Logitech Z906, which I originally bought for £134 on an amazon warehouse deal and am going to send this back in light of buying this system.

Which is better? from the sound quality vs price point? the Yamaha looks a lot nicer and can upgrade later down the line. which would you pick? I am a complete newbie to surround sound, so your advice is much welcomed.
