  1. Hi guys, Looking to put together a system consisting of the following... -Elac Navis ARB-51 powered speakers -Innuos Zenith MK2 server & Phoenix USB re-clocker (controlled via Orange Squeeze app) -Chord Qutest DAC Question is, because the Elac's and Qutest don't have volume control, and the Elac's require a variable output source, can I control the volume using the orange Squeeze app? Kind regards,
  2. Sorry, somehow missed this post. I tried Roon briefly, before I bought the Zenith, using a laptop, but for me, I couldn't justify the price of Roon.
  3. Ha! That feeling of receiving a new toy to play with never goes away! Totally different systems but more sparkle and energy is what I noticed out of the box too. Enjoy the music!
  4. I've never listened to my KEF's via wireless so can't comment there, but the difference between streaming natively via the KEF app and my Innuos setup really is night and day.
  5. Thought I'd revive this thread by describing the improvements that adding an Innuos Phoenix has done to my LS50's and MK2 Zenith server setup. The improvement is not subtle. Soundstage has improved by quite some margin, instruments now seem to have their own space; the noise floor has dropped as I'm hearing things which I've never heard before; timing has improved (feets tapping a lot more!); The top end has a lovely shimmer to it. Yes it's expensive, but having listened to it for a few weeks now, I can say it's the best upgrade I've made. Definitely worth a look for anyone that has the KEFs but is looking to improve the sound even further.
  6. I've had the Phoenix for the last couple of weeks now and it's as good as all the reviews and early adopters have described. I'm using mine with KEF LS50 active speakers and a MK2 Zenith and the improvement is not subtle.

  9. Congrats on the purchases Hiker! Did you try the Zenith with an without the Phoenix during your demo? If so what improvements did the Phoenix bring? I've got a Phoenix on order which, fingers crossed, should be arriving at the end of the week!
  10. John Darko has had a Phoenix in for review since April (based on his Instagram account). A review should be on his YouTube account in the next couple of weeks.
  11. Looking forward to trying the Phoenix with my MK2 Zenith and Active KEF LS50 speaker's. Should hopefully have one for home demo in a couple of weeks. Yes the Phoenix costs more than the KEF's, but if the improvements are worth it, I'll gladly take it!

  13. New update released today...
  14. I'm afraid they'll have to go back for repair. I had exactly the same issue across all inputs. Turns out it was one of the components that connects the left to right speaker that was faulty. To be fair to KEF, they fixed and returned my speakers within a week and they've been fine ever since. I'm in the UK.
