With the children getting older, not only do I have some residual income, but I have also started to rekindle my love for music. For functionality, I connected a Sonos Connect to my Technics 1500SL turntable which went into a Vincent PHO-701 tube pre-amp. The Connect then linked to two Sonos 3s I had in each corner of the room. However, the music bug has bit and I have just bought a new Naim Uniti Nova with Neat speakers. However, setting this system up has been a negotiation between my wife and I, so compromises have to be made!
Basically, if I wanted to position the Naim near the turntable, I would need to have in excess on 17 metres of speaker cable for each speaker to have them in the position I/we want. This cable would then need to run along the skirting boards and around the door farmers etc, and this was something I was not too keen on. The other option is that I somehow stream the music from the turntable to the Naim. I don’t really want to do down the Bluetooth route, even with the aptX HD available as I feel there would be a compromise with high-res. Ideally, I’d like to transmit over Wi-Fi so that higher resolution formats can be transmitted. From extensive research I have found that using two Sonos Connects (one connected to the turntable, the other to the Naim) would be my best bet. However, i wanted to know of others knew of a better system. From what I can understand the Connect may not transmit in high-res and I wondered if there were alternative out there?
Thanks for any help,
