I have recently begun to download hi-res. music from the net with some success. But I have the problem that my computer and hi-fi are three rooms apart. The latter consists of a Quad 66/ 606 amplifier set and a Quad CDP2 CD player. I also have a Cambridge BD650 for playing SACD, Bluray and DVD discs for large works recorded in uncompressed formats.
The experiment I tried with a Squeezebox failed because the wi-fi would not connect owing to the distance between the electronics. So I am now contemplating buying a Naim NDX into which I can put the signal from a disc made in the computer or, perhaps better, a hard disc drive carried from the computer to the hi-fi.
I would like advice on how then to play back the music. If I put it from the NDX through the 66/606 it would presumably degrade the signal as they are quite an old combination now. Should I buy a Naim integrated amplifier to do that? Or is there another, preferably cheaper method?
Any advice would be most welcome!
