    This is just to share a set up that sounds sweet. I'm no audiophile, but I like when music is just spot on.

    The iPod Classic Gen3/4 DAC performance is well known, but when you pair it with a tube amp it adds a little bit of magic. It's like the soft focus in a 70s movie love story, but in a good way. Someone like Joss Stone benefits in particular. I also like the silence between tracks, which is probably thanks to the Wireless' amplifiers.

    I know this sort of defeats the "no wires" approach of the Wireless, but all the bits are fag-packet sized, so you are still "kitchen friendly". Also, the Bravo v2 glow is a bit of a showpiece.

    I have compared the same tracks on Spotify Premium, and the iPod/Bravo wins hands down. YMMV

    (all the tracks are 256 encodes, lossless might yield even better results)
