Melco/Exogal/Vitus/Estelon system

At this moment, I see streaming from a music library like the Melco as being at its most successful when run alongside a quality CD player and not as a replacement. Access to hi-res files through the N1Z is great, if you like hi-res. Personally I am intrigued with certain recordings but until I can get the music I want to listen to in high-res formats, it is no more than that.

The Exogal is remarkable value for money and could quite happily sit at the hub of many a high-end digital system.  The Vitus and the Estelons are truly superb too but when together they make a system that perfectly fits the Kog ethos of ultimate musicality and where the musicians and their music are the stars, then that’s what system building is really all about.
