system chain
« on: 6 Aug 2019, 06:30 pm »
 I am asking for advice. I just received King STM. For a little background Ive had 2 stereo receivers, and recently an av by Denon. Im a music guy 1st. In my system I have an Oppo 103D with DACs  RC to Balanced to my King which in turn drives my Buchardt 400s. I am seeking advice on maybe a RCA switch or Preamp. I have an 1970s Technics 1700 turntable, a sonos Connect. Also Im thinking about a sub in near future. I would appreciate any suggestions.

Congratulations! Welcome to the family! I have had the STM with the 48v power supply for over a month now and ma LOVING it! Bets two channel amp I have ever owned. I also have his DAC DAC HS1. And I use a Yamaha WXC-C50 with GREAT results. It has multiple options including a subwoofer output. I use it as volume control as well.

By the way, I bet those Buchardt's sound AMAZING with the STM! What a killer combo! Step up to the Oppo 105D though if you're a music guy first. I owned one and it was spectacular! Balanced out too.

Anyone ever use a Sonic Euphoria PLC? (auto-transformer passive)

I think its important to have an idea of where you want to end up and then start thinking about how to build the chain that gets you the sound you are looking for.  Examples:  Is a remote important?  If so, just for volume or is remote switching important?  Are you willing to upgrade other components in your system, there is a pretty big difference between the Oppo 103D and more recent DACs that can cost from a little to a lot...are you willing to add a DAC to the chain and bypass the 103 DAC?

In the mean time, for just basic switching...check this out....
