Receiver controlled by Andriod 2017-08-05 22:50:34 I have a fairly old setup now. Cambridge A500 amp, p500 amp (bi-amped speakers), DAB tuner, DAC magic (inputs DAB tuner, notebook and bluetooth receiver), mm cartridge amp, Creek headphone amp, bluetooth receiver takes Andriod phone output to DAC . All these could be replaced.To be kept, Mission floor standing speakers, Rega Planer 3 turntable and Sennheiser RS 180 headphones (at present plugged into Creek, plugged into A500).Firstly my ears are very old so not looking to improve sound; say just similar what I have got.Music mainly jazz and classical with a lot of the latter from Radio 3. Have 4000+ tracks (mainly FLAC) on micro sd card in phone and same on notebook (used less these days than phone; being digital same quality when hits DAC?).A lot of listening now is via headphones, not in same room as hifi; Sennheiser Kleer works well for this. However phone to DAC magic, via bluetooth receiver, does not work from "headphone" room; Sennheiser phones do and very well, unlike Sennheiser direct into phone, ugh! The fact that the phone/tablet has to remain in the hifi room is the main failing of my present system.Looking to be able to have a setup where I sit in "headphone" room and have my Andriod phone or tablet app controlling hifi so I can select either BBC radio app or my micro sd card and all other receiver controls. A receiver remote is no good because it has no screen and probably would not work in the headphone room either; I could not see the list of programmes available or select to track/album on the sd card.I see that there are now receivers with memory stick USB input, DAC and wifi built in (WAPs/homehubs so whole house has good wifi so could hard wire receiver to router) and even bi- amping.I have no use for a tv; if I want that I join my wife in her cinema room. Have been thinking of something like Spotify but I rarely buy much these days. Perhaps the odd CD or mp3 download.Budget say <£500I guess the phone/tablet app will drive the choice as much as the receiver facilities?Any advice please?
