Hi, first post on here so hello to you all, hope you’re having a decent Xmas despite the current situation. I’m looking for a bit of advice and info. I have a home loan over the hols of a Bartok, the none headphone model. Arrived yesterday by DPD, guess giving all the delivery drivers Xmas boxes paid off
I have a nice vinyl setup, do any of you use an ADC to feed the Bartok and remove the need for a Pre Amp? If so what do you use hardware/cabling wise?
I have initially set things up as simply as possible Bartok to Power Amps to Speakers until I get it warmed up and used to the interface/options. Have updated to latest firmware and playing from ROON. First Head to Head will be against bare Vega G2 this morning.
If you use a Pre Amp, what models are in favour? I only need 2 XLR in but 3 would be nice.
Phono stage - Luxman EQ-500 XLR out (can use RCA)
Streamer - Auralic Aries G2/Vega G2/Leo GX
Pre/DSP - Lyngdorf TDAI-3400
Power - Bel Canto Ref 600M x 2
Spkrs - Martin Logan ESL11a
