Bought my Anthem Receiver from them, no problems at all.
No doubt great speakers so therefore hot.I dont have any experience of Nintronics,anybody care to advise?.That website doesn't inspire confidence when considering spending £1000.Assuming decent amplifier would these be a worthwhile step above my Acoutic Energy AE1 actives?.
I think it is the pair as showing half price but worth double checking before buying!.
Maybe if you move out the Mrs, space will become available;)

Chord Electronics 2Qute DAC now £499 @ Nintronics£499£99950% off
After some deals that have gone down very coldly :) I am hoping this is a good one!!! 500 notes discount has to be worth some heat. Description from site: The new 2Qute is a com… Read more
I’d love to, but I’ve bought some sennheiser hd800 headphones. So that side of it will have to wait.
Try one for yourself... Its not just about the DAC chip used but how it is integrated which can make all the difference... Plus these are FPGA chips specifically programmed to do the job in hand by Rob Watts who is very well recognised when it comes to DAC technology.
The mojo was given more of a warmer character by Rob Watts as it was aimed at portable headphones etc and not as detail..I didnt listen to the 2Qute but Qutest and Hugo 2 are very similar but the Qutest suited my system as I don't use headphones and saved me some money
So probably not worth the change then?
Yes you’re correct I’m wrong. Was another model. Still the Burr DAC chips feature in some of the finest DACs made. Thanks for the correction

They can sound harsh with the wrong music. I know, I have B&Ws (I have had 10 pairs actually) but would buy another pair. It's nothing to do with MP3s (a decent quality MP3 does still sound good), it's to do with bad recordings/mastering/mixing. With nice sounding stuff (not subjective music taste, as in stuff that's not rubbish with respect to its sound quality) they are great. It's a compliment to the speakers if they show a recording for what it really is, unfortunately that sometimes makes good songs difficult to listen to if you like non-audiophile stuff. They do tend to measure bright though too, which doesn't help with the wrong room/gear/not set up right.
The CM series has a warmer sound than the rest of them (hence why I don't like the CMs). A lot of it is what you're used to and what you pair them with.
Lighten up young man and listen to some calming music it was a joke, oh and I guarantee i would call you a liar in person and that's no lie!
For some I agree.My friend has the older 802 and they are a little bright but as I mentioned I did not feel this was the case when I heard the cm5. I think off the end of an Arcam amp. “Higher in frequency, there is a slight lack of energy just below the crossover point; all things being equal, this would lend the B&W a rather laid-back quality.” from the stereophile review which was positive overall... measurements backed up the more laid-back signature I heard it seems. Everyone’s ears are different otherwise there would just be one brand so don’t go knocking things just because they are not to your tastes. What speakers do you have out of interest
Thanks, mine have silver tweeters but I think you're right that they might be more AV than true audio, I didn't do much research when I bought them

Arcam solo soundbar plus - £199 @ Nintronics£199
Was speaking with the the guys at Nintronics and saw they had reducded down the price of the Arcam solo bar to £199. Apparently it’s the last couple they have and they going cheap … Read more
Been using it on/off now for just over a week using features on both the remote and the app and all is good so far. Will definitely need a sub at some point but I'm in no hurry, it is very good as it stands.
If you could update this thread with your findings, it would be useful for my sanity at least. (y) 🏻 Paul
I was concerned regarding the comments about Bluetooth but I have been using it for the better part of a day and had zero issues. I must be one of the lucky ones! Specifically, I have been using my S8+ Android phone as the remote. Also, I was playing music through it for about 3 hours today via Google Music. Superb reproduction.
That’ll explain why Nintronics was selling half a dozen of this soundbar with the bluetooth module removed for £99 on eBay.
Right, set it up using the included mic for calibration and it is certainly weaker than the 107 where bass is concerned. Drax in GOTG2 is not as deep as the 107 for example. However, It is better I feel in detail. Background sounds in films seem more pronounced. Plus I can add a sub at a later date anyway which would be better than both soundbars on their own anyway. Cheers.

Dont want to ruin your vinyl collection . SME MODEL 30/12 GOLD TURNTABLE @ Nintronics£45,853.20
Why risk ruining your vinyl collection with a sub £20 player . What price can you put on your vinyl collection .
Can you return it for a refund? They may have extended returns policy over Christmas , like Argos. Just say it was a gift.
OOS at Tesco, ALDI and Morrisons. Quick search, then Asked for a price match at John Lewis - after consulting the manager they said I would have to apply online using their form. Unfortunately their "price match" form cant handle more than £9999.99! So missed out due to their cr4ppy website limitations. John Lewis need to up their game.
Just looked at several sites and no mention of built in pre-amp and in fact 2 reviews told of connecting to external pre-amp and amp, so don't know where you are getting your info from, certainly not SME who don't mention pre-amp.
Oh yes you do. It has a pre-amp built in,plus the whole set up is crucial to the tone and overall sound quality. Why else would anyone buy one. Looking for a decent dansette deck now.
Thanks OP, bought a few as stocking fillers for next year

Arcam solo movie £799 @ Nintronics£799
had mine arrive today and so far its been a vast improvement to my system. highly recommend.
If you are looking to use it for stereo use, then I would recommend buying a stereo system to do that. These AV systems are designed for a different use case. As for Bi-amping/Bi-wiring, IMHO it doesnt add any value but you can make your own mind up. Arcam do make excellent stereo and AV systems but do tend to run hot (the chassis gets warm when the sytem is in use). I am not sure if this system suffers from this issue as well.
Depends how you look at it, yes no atmos but prob not that important to some and no 4k / 4k pass through prob bigger issue, however if you look at it in straight stereo use, using rear channels to biamp your fronts (need to check you can/could on old one) you have a great stereo set up. Cd/Bluetooth/upnp network/dab radio you would struggle to get better and neater setup for £799 Also if you wanted to run as 3.1 setup so not using rears again great option better than just a soundbar, if you have 4k uhd player nearly all have seperate audio out so can utilise all features. The interface is a bit slow and clunky
Pretty crap system feature wise when compared to the slim Marantz range. And it's not going to have the same oomph as a full sized Marantz, Pioneer Elite or Yamaha Aventage.
old school tech
No Atmos or HDMI 2.0/HDCP 2.2 with this so whilst its a good product, its nowhere near the latest technology. More details on this can be found here. Just my 2p worth.

Tannoy DC8 speakers 40% OFF £1499.00 @ Nintronics£1,499

Do you actually understand what you wrote. You just compared earphones to speakers! Heat on the discount by the way!
And who in their mind buys a Ferrari when a Nissan Micra will get you from a to b as well.... all those rich people could save loads of money.... just a minute - they don't need too.. maybe that's why they buy expensive speakers.. Ferraris etc
Should be flames knock knock knocking at the door. Surely people voting cold simply because of the price... which I don't get. This is a good discount regardless of price point it's a deal.
Yeah a £1 headphone vs a speaker, it'll be better no doubt! :D
Get a pair of earphones from Poundland for just, you guessed it, one of your English £s. The quality will probably be just as good.
