Very smart and usable thread Ryan!

Maybe this can be put under ´important thread´
as it is a great guide for both starters and more advanced users

Thanks, I'm hoping this promotion comes with a pay rise so I can buy more kit? Big Grin

Great thread. Might be worth adding the "does a preamp improve a DS" chestnut.

RE: Top tips & upgrade advice for better sound
Our advice BEFORE you do anything else is the following:

-------- CLEAN ALL ELECTRICAL CONTACTS ---------

Something like WD-40 Specialist Electrical Contact Cleaner for a little over £5 will clean up the sound. Spray a little on the metal contacts of your cable connectors - leave them for 1 minute and clean off with a lint free cloth. Then apply a light spray to them again and fit the connectors into the relevant equipment sockets, push in & out a couple of times and wipe clean again. Do the same with power plugs & their connections into the equipment (with the power off of course!). Allow everything to dry for a couple of minutes before plugging everything back in. You WILL hear a difference if you haven't done this for 6 months or longer.
