My first post, so hope I’m asking in the correct category.
I’m been looking at buying a small hifi setup and have had my eyes on all in ones namely - Denon DM41 or Marantz MCR611 or Onkyo N775. However with each of them I feel like I’m compromising on one thing or another.
I came across Paul’s very informative video’s on YouTube a while ago and learnt of the brand.
I also recalled the Sprout, then today found that there’s an updated Sprout with some nice looking specs.
So I’ve decided to enter the world of real hifi, spend a little more and get the Sprout, and see how sound differs with an Amp from a premium brand - very excited!
Anyhow, what I’d like to ask is what suggestions do members here have - I want the Sprout amp, but would also like a CD player, Airplay (for playing music from my Laptop) and Chromecast (for playing music from Soundcloud). I know it has Bluetooth but I prefer to be able to use my phone when its playing music.
I’m kind of going over my budget so i’ll probably buy things gradually with the priority being network audio (Chromecast) then CD, then Airplay.
Are there are devices that work well with the Sprout, has anyone found something with all 3 in one, or even all network in one?
Any guidance/suggestions appreciated.
