Many thanks to Simon and his “13th Note HiFi Reviews” blog. Great reviews on so many products and precious personal advices. I was thinking about changing my streamer since mine, a Bluesound Node2 doesn’t lead to the CD-like quality I am seeking at the moment. And he gave me a very simple and costless recommendation : loading FLAC files on the Node2 to check if this is the Tidal/Qobuz signal is or not involved in current results. Simon gave me many other details about DAC rankings, wires and so on… A precious support for a Hi-Fi newbie like the one I am

The 13th Note HiFi Reviews website is a breath of fresh air for anyone looking for guidance and sensible advice with anything to do with HiFi. Simon’s reviews are completely unbiased, easy to follow and understand, as well as being somewhat light hearted. No complicated phrases or snake oil. He is exteremely helpful and genuinely wants to help. If he was a HiFi retailer he would stand head and shoulders above the rest. Well done Simon!!
