I have been using my system now for two and a half years:


  • Meridian 818v3 reference
  • Bowers 800D (3)
  • Classe mono amps
  • Roon (recently upgraded to 1.7)
  • Tidal stream through Roon
  • Sarum T cables
  • MAC Laptop as Roon core (OS: Yosemite 10.10.5)


Everything has been working fine until a couple of weeks ago.  I have noticed a considerable drop in sound quality, and I am struggling to understand where on my system I am getting the issue.  To date I have:


1 - Tried playing through one amp and one speaker.  It seems to be the same on both which rules out an Amp/Speaker issue

2 - I streamed directly from Tidal on my laptop through USB to the 818v3 and still get the same issue

3 - I have rolled back the Roon software to 1.6 and 1.5 and go the same issue.


This leads me to the 818v3 being the problem?  I have reset to factory settings just incase there are some rogue filters, but its still the same problem.  


Anybody got any advice?
