Set-up and installation
We streamed primarily through the Ida-8’s built-in dac. We connect our Sonnet Hermes to the Ida-8 via a Ricable Magnus coaxial cable. In fact, with the matching NuPrime Stream 9, you can put together a compact and affordable system to listen to hours of carefree music. We tested mainly with the Vienna Acoustics Haydn Jubilee but also with the Bowers and Wilkins 606S2, Q Acoustics 3030i and Elac Carina BS 243.3 it went fine. As mentioned, this is not a difficult partner for speakers.
The test system
