I am currently in a major purge mode not only on the audio equipment side but in life in general So naturally, I’m also looking at my current system and am asking myself how I can simplify it further without a major investment and without loosing quality.
Currently, I am listening on a pair of Harbeth C7ES-3 speakers, which I love, using a LFD Zero MKIII LE amp and a Lumin D2 streamer. 95% of my listening is through the D2 using Roon. The rest is a vinyl player hooked up to the LFD’s phono stage. It’s a beautiful sounding system and works without a hitch.
Nevertheless, with Devialet prices especially on the used market becoming more acceptable, I am contemplating to go for a used D120 and get rid of my LFD and Lumin. Literally just one box plus my Harbeths. I’d be very interested to hear some opinions about that idea from other members.
While I’ve read up on the various problems people are having with Devialet and Roon, it seems that AIR on a 120 is working really well and most problems are with the new CI boards. For me, it won’t make much of a difference if streaming is via AIR or RAAT as I almost never pair the main system with my other players in the house.
Looking forward to hear from you.
