Right out of the box without trying different options it might sound just 'blah'.

I am still pretty impressed by the NAD after two years of ownership.  It continues to feed my NAD to the Stax SR009 + BHSE system.  Gotta love the perfect volume control.  I think I may be able do better soundwise but I'm going to miss out on its SACD via HDMI feature as well as the perfect digital attenuation.

I feel like contributing to this thread, in my system lowering the volume definitely robes the music of DR and bass slam. 

I try to keep it at 0 db or lower it as little as possible (Yamaha A-S2100 is quite sensitive as XLR is tuned at 2.8 V).  Perhaps others might leverage this info.

Does anyone know how to connect Raspberry Pi 2B to M51 via i2s?

 

I'm thinking of welding HDMI cable to Raspberry Pi's pin, 

 

Not sure if this will work..

Can anybody recommend a good power chord upgrade for the M51 ?

What's wrong with the original one and how (in which ways) another one could deliver any improvements?  
I'm just interested :normal_smile :

As if anyone could tell power cords apart in a double blinded ABX test.
BS.
