Great stuff Dan. I love how different the people of this community are in every way. Your system provides you joy. That's what counts. I think you'll find many others just like you here, but they don't comment that much for obvious reasons. 


I'm vert jealous of you seeing Portishead in Blackburn in 1997!


Thanks Chris! I must admit I was a bit embarrassed... especially about the Wave Radio!

Nothing to be embarassed about. I had a Squeezebox Boom that I enjoyed listening to for years. It wasn't my main system, but it fit my needs in my kitchen and was fun to listen to while cooking and cleaning. I'd still be using it if it hadn't bit the dust. 

Main listening (small home office):

Main setup: Surge protector +_iFi  AC iPurifiers >Isol-8 Mini sub Axis Power Conditioning+Isolation>QuietPC Low Noise Server>Roon (Audiolense DRC)>Stack Audio Link II>Kii Control>Kii Three >GIK Room Treatments.

Secondary Listening: Server with Audiolense RC>RPi4 or analog>Matrix Element i Streamer/DAC (XLR)+Schiit Freya>Kii Three .

Bedroom: SBTouch to Cambridge Soundworks Desktop Setup.
Living Room/Kitchen: RPi 3B+ running RoPieee to a pair of Morel Hogtalare. 

All absolute statements about audio are false :)

If you can hear the music, you can listen through any medium.  At some point I think the majority will have had worse equipment.  I know I did.
