Recently did a complete overhaul of the 2nd system in my TV/florida room. For 16 years, I had a Musical Fidelity XA-1 integrated and KEF Q15.2 speakers. It was good. This new system blows it away. Simple, but significant (and inexpensive).
I purchased the IDA-8 used for $625, and I got the Dentons new for $400. Probably another $200 in value cables.
I use both digital ins on the IDA-8: TV and Sonos Connect. I listen to 100% streaming via Deezer Premium (16bit FLAC). Very happy with the new system.
Thanks for the comments, Scott. I spent a lot of time researching to put this together.
I was really close to just getting the Kef LS50 wireless, but they were basically $1000 more than this system, they only have 1 digital in, and I had to admit to myself that I wanted the flexibility to tinker down the road. So my goal when building this system was to create something pleasing that was $1000 less than the LS50w.
The LS50's do have the built in DSP, but I have miniDSP already if I want to go that route. And, I can always upgrade the Dentons to the passive LS50's.
This system probably doesn't match the LS50w in sonic quality, but I think I made good compromises.
I'm loving the Nuprime. I needed something small for the location. My first class D amp and I'm very impressed.
