Default My new "New Summa" speakers

Just for sharing with everyone here.
I've enjoyed 5 years Abbey before moving to Summa.
As I live in Switzerland, I could not listen to it before buying ... and twice, I have not been disappointed.
The New Summa (NS15) is a great speaker !
Not the same shock as listening to the Abbey for the first time, but a clear upgrade, and well worth it.
Imaging seems to me being more stable (more rock solid), and adding more depth for a better 3D scene. The sound also seem breathing better, with clearer ambience noises, and
timbers defined in a better way, everything cleaner, hearing deeper into music.
Apart from music, it was also a real pleasure as Earl Geddes offers a first class support.
About sources, there is an external HDD connected to a Wandboard quad --> NanoDigi --> HifiMeDIY DDX320 amps and NanoDigi --> HiFiMeDIY DAC --> Rythmik servo subwoofers.

Soon, I'll try John Kenny Ciunas instead of Wandboard for feeding the NanoDigi.

Darn those are beauties!
I wish I could listen to them!
BTW about the wandboard which OS/app are you using? Is it headless?

Default OS used on Wandboard

Hi Nikitas,
I use a XBMC running on Yocto. I've found the images there : Yet another yocto image | Stephan's blog
It works with a head, the HDMI connecting the Wandboard to my LCD screen can be seen. As Yocto is a linux distro, it may be used headless (command line), but I hane not tried it.
You're welcome for a listening cession if you come in Switzerland.
Alain

Thank you for the invitation!
I was using a wandboard the same way but I dropped it , I found it very annoying that I had to turn the tv on every time.
Thankfully, I have a synology nas, which after the last update can be used as a streamer too, providing usb output.
