Stereo Starter Kit

Selling as a combined kit only.

I think this is a really great setup for someone starting out in stereo.
Covers the analog and digital space.

1. Speakers - Castle Knight 2's
2. Amplifier - NAD 3020i
3. Turntable - NAD 5020A (AT95)
4. Raspberry Pi 3, Kali Reclocker, Allo Piano    2.1 DAC and case

Allo Piano 2.1

All immaculate condition.

Prefer local sale

Will install Volumio or Max2Play for the buyer of this set on a 16GB SD card for the Pi, Kali Reclocker and Allo 2.1 dac. Will include 6 LP'S of your choosing from my unsorted pile. Any support / advise after the fact with the Pi setup included.

The Allo 2.1 DAC allows for normal left and right speakers as well as connection for a Subwoofer.

Absolutely No profit being made here. Would love this set to be taken by someone starting out.

By starter kit I don't mean this is low grade stuff. Have enjoyed the 3020i and Castle Knights so much. However very low mileage on the castles.

Will throw in 4 meters of speaker cable.

Take it home, set it up and away you go.

Last option.

I have a pair of Acoustic Research AR38'S that have had the drivers and tweeters replaced (Not Original) Cabinets are perfect. Connectors at the back need some work. They sound great to be honest. Take these instead of the Castles with the bundle for R5200.

A bit off topic, but how well does something like that raspberry pi DAC compare to full sized commercial DACs?

I am rather into micro computers, so have quite a few pies and arduinos lying around. Maybe a Pie DAC is something to look into...
I now own HD598's HD650's... Which automatically qualifies everything I have to say audio-wise. :D

Give it a go!! Personally can't justify 5000 up for a dac but I really enjoy my modest setups
