Got them for around $50 a pair, good working condition! Gonna change the grill cloth because of a couple of holes.

That is quite cheap in my opinion. Grill cloth is the one that starts to wear of pretty soon.

(sorry for my bad english)
Hello everybody
we love music and we (my wife and me) had an huge collection buyed FLAC and highres alac files

I have an R Pi2 b and use an Creative SoundblasterX G5 USB highres DAC with integraded headphone amplifier on the USB port. it works fine! (Rune reconized the G5 out of the box)

But today i have ordered an PiFi DAC+ (hifiberry clone) for the Pi2. i think thats better for highres audio files because it`s not USB.
The hifi setup i use is an yamaha AX 497 stereo amplifier (2010) without any digital connection, but the golden "cd/dvd" rca connectors says enough :P
The speakers are: setting A: JBL-LX2 2way(1996) and setting B: B&W DM302 (1995) 2way.


I was collecting (saving) money for an "yamaha network streamer" until i re-discover the Rpi2 :mrgreen:

I hope that the PiFi DAC+ don`t disappoint me and my wife ;)

My hifi system, compared to some featured, seems very mediocre by comparison: Denon RCD-M35DAB amplifier and Denon ported speakers. In my 10ft x 12ft lounge, it's perfect for me :D

Do you think a set up like that excels in smaller spaces?

If this was a question for me - yes it does - it's a smaller space to fill with sound so no need for a huge amplifier and speaker system to alter the air in the room when a smaller modest system works best and also looks good.

My next system will also be Denon but with digital inputs so I can upgrade my Pi to Digital outs and let the Denon do the converting.
