OK, my HIFI is out of storage after 5 years, but 5 years is a looong time and its time to look again at what I need as the world has moved on.
All my music is MP3 now served on a NAS/DLNA server.
Some of my films are digital on the same NAS/DLNA server and some are on DVD or BR discs.
So … I’m after some advice about how best to utilize what I have and possibly any new gear to provide surround sound and HIFI again.
I have the following equipment at the moment:
Mission 753 (main)
Mission M7DS (rear)
Mission M7C1 (centre)
Cyrus IIIi amp
Cyrus power amp
Yamaha DSP-E800 (only drivers rears and centre from memory)
Marantz CD-63 mk II - KI Signature
Western Digital TV Live
Panasonic DMP – BD35
Not sure if its possible to get one player for CD/DVD/Blu-ray/MP3/various digital film formats served locally or from a central DLNA server with a decent output. I’d be happy to replace the Marantz as the motor was getting worn and the Panasonic as it’s a pretty early BR player and I’m sure there are much better around now.
Finally, my old setup was a little different as I had no sub-woofer (big Missions had enough umph) and I had the Yamaha feeding into the Cyrus IIIi but there was always some miss-match or earth loop that was annoying.
I’m all ears
