Hi I am new to the forum and am looking for some advice in respect of moving my system into the digital streaming age. I currently have two aging systems in different rooms. The first in the lounge comprises a Linn Classik (amplifier/CD/tuner) powering Focal Chorus speakers. The second system in the spare room is a Linn Sondek (currently at the dealer having a Lingo 4 upgrade) partnered with Naim 42/110 and Arcam delta CD player. The dealer is recommending replacing the Linn Classik with a either Naim Uniti Atom adding an Innuos Zen Mini to rip/ play the CD collection or alternatively purchasing the cheapest Naim streamer to feed the 42/110 combo relocated to the lounge (which would be serviced by Naim) again alongside the Innuos Zen Mini. What are people’s thoughts on these systems?
Additionally, I should add that to position the Zen Mini next to either system I would need to use powerline adapters for an internet connection though the dealer seems keen to position it near the router attached to the network but this would mean it being in the hall next to the telephone which seems counterintuitive to me. Again any thoughts? Will it actually work?
