Eltax are looking great, but in germany I can’t find any shop to buy from.
A silly question, I think, but I do have to ask: all of those speakers offer 2 connectors, Cinch/RCA red and white. The DAC offers white und red connectors, too, but only two of them, not 4 connectors for 2 speakers.
With a risk to commit a blasphemy and swear in church !
Edifier (Chinese made) NO high end speaker ! but is given good criticism , my plan is to buy a pair of Studio 1600 TIII 2.0 as garage speakers (active speakers) for under 100 Euro
I´ve bought Eltax Monitor iii, which are looking great…
Now there is only one question left:
As I want to connect those speakers to my raspberry pi 3 running volume 2, I´ve bought a PiFi DAC+ from AliExpress. At the moment it is shipping for approx. 2-3 weeks.
Meanwhile I´d like to think about how to connect the speakers… I want to build one headless RPi-Volumio for my Marantz SR-5010 A/V-receiver, one with touch screen for my working place as an internet radio und one for my hobby room…
So, at the moment I am thinking about this hardware configuration:
Marantz room: RPI Zero with Hifiberry mini DAC
hobby room: RPI Zero with Pimoroni piHat Beat with buttons (what do you think?) aka Pirate Radio
working place: RPi3 with 7" touch screen PiFi DAC+ and Eltax Monitor iii
Does the Hifiberry mini DAC with PiZero offer good quality a speed ?
What kind of amplifier do I need to put between the Eltax and the RPI3 with PiFi DAC ? I am looking for a possibility to connect them. And, what would you recommend as an amp ? Or does an Hifiberry amp DAC offer sufficient power for connecting the eltax to the RPi3/Volumio ?
Pioneer SP-BS22 (about 130$) - it’s like Porta Pro among the bookshelf speakers if you know what I mean. They will deliver 100% guarantied fun to their owner. I owned them but now gone on the next level with Wharfedale Denton 80th Anniversary Edition.
I’d say warm and enveloping; depending upon the music, of course. Eva Cassidy is crystal clear, Pearl Jam forceful, Prodigy wide ranging and orchestral/choir all around you. At all volumes (from nearfield listening to party time) reproduction is sublime, for the price. They are extremely well built and finished. It’ll be a fair while until I need to upgrade, I think.
