It appears as though my old Teac CD player is almost kaput and I'm looking for something to replace it, actually an entire new system would be the goal here. Preferably a DAC / integrated or power / pre setup. NAS storage will be where I keep my music (FLAC or Windows lossless depending on which format actually works!) After a cursory check into some old threads on the topic, I have discovered that not since 2009 has anyone posted a thread on such a topic, so I feel that now is the time Also, hifi buzzwords change almost on a monthly basis so there's that factor (the technology is a different story?). Brands that intrigue me (but I haven't demoed) are Rega, Musical Fidelity, Audiolab, in other words, brands that are known for high quality sound with neutral-to-warm (or not?) character. TEAC is also still in the running as a possible upgrade too. Loudspeakers are a pair of KEF Q100 bookshelfs, lovely sound but they do suck power, rated at 100W RMS @ 8ohm Any thoughts, experiences with the above gear or other possible suggestions?
