For about a year I have been very happily using a Linn Klimax DS/1 Renew, and very good it is too.
However, I do love the audio qualities of my Deco Audio upgraded Audionote 2.1 DAC, R2R NOS.
I have been keeping my eye open for a 2nd hand dCS Network Bridge, but they are like hen’s teeth.
When I saw Meridian were bringing out a streamer it peaked my interest as they have an excellent pedigree in this area, and for £800!
I have the box on loan for a week and it arrived today, a utilitarian device - which doesn’t bother me at all.
Initial setup is done by Bluetooth. It can then be streamed to via WiFi, LAN or Bluetooth.
- My old Xperia could load up the Meridian app but didn’t find the 210, my daughter’s newer phone did; and
- To use Kazoo I needed to set it up in Bubbleupnp.
Now streaming NAS and Qobuz via the 210 & Audionote.
George is popping over next Thursday with his dCS NB which should be interesting.
I’ll post some thoughts and observations over the next few days.
