Time to replace my Pure Sirocco 550 - recommendations please


Standard Member
The time has come to replace my Pure Sirocco 550. I bought it as a standalone unit and use Q-Acoustics 2010s with it.

The reasons for making the change:

1. When streaming I find it tedious to get to the album I want. It has no phone app that would make navigation easier.
2. The remote control has stopped working so it feels like now is a good time!

In order of importance these are the available sources on the Sirocco 550:

  • Integrated wi-fi streaming (vital)
  • DAB+ (vital)
  • CD (necessary for my partner)
  • Aux-In (useful)
  • Ipod dock (occasionally useful but I guess aux-in would be ok)
  • USB (unnecessary)
  • FM (unnecessary)
  • Internet radio (unnecessary)
  • Line-level inputs (unnecessary)

Maybe Bluetooth/NFC could be useful? Maybe Spotify Connect could be useful?

When streaming I'd like to be able to quickly and easily navigate to what I want to listen to.

I'd like to utilise my existing Q-Acoustics 2010 speakers.

If anyone has any recommendations under £500 please. Thanks in advance, people.

Hello iamaran,

I realize I'm replying to a 2+ year old post, but - if by any chance you still have your old Pure 550, I'd be interested in buying it. thanks, John.
