Yea i did look at that and is definitely an option although it would be a bonus to have CD player capabilities tbh! Any thoughts on how the 6000a play streaming functionality compares with the bluesound?

I've not had direct experience of it, but when I bought the bluesound that was the main reason for choosing it over the audiolab equivalent streamer. I read several reviews that it was clunky and not as well put together. That was over a year ago so it may have improved since.

Would you recommend the bluesound? Do you know if it works well with qobuz?

PC as a source is pretty darn clunky. Just use a dedicated audio media streamer. I use older system, Synology NAS with LMS and Squeezeboxes. Works well. It's a bit obselete now, but it's cheap like £50 a player, so multi room can be done cheaply.

Ive not used qobuz but the tidal interface is really good. I would recommend. I've got a few devices for multiroom functionality.

I also use a Logitech squeezebox with a which is a lower cost option with squeezer (the app interface) in another setup. It's getting on a bit but works okay.

In the case of the PC the flow would be;
  • PC (graphics card HD audio) to TV via HDMI
  • TV to integrated amp via optical (for music) and TV to AVR via HDMI (for movies/games)

In the case of the external HDD the flow would be;
  • HDD to TV via USB
  • TV to integrated amp via optical cable

For everything else (blu ray drive, PS4...etc) it would be;
  • Source to AVR via HDMI
  • AVR to integrated amp via pre-outs/RCA for audio
  • AVR to TV via HDMI for picture

Wouldn't it go PC -> HDMI -> AVR -> HDMI -> TV?
