    Can't say I've really been into this for a while, but it was good to listen to my KEF M400s today. They really show how musical things can be.

    Yeah I was into the high end sound for awhile...then I had kids. Haven’t used any of it since and sold most of it away to fund camera equipment for the business.

    I copied all my CDs to my PC and listen to them on my devices via Apple Match.

    Great sound is extra engaging. When I'm in FL I miss it, and I return home to hear balance, detail, and dynamics again and it's like having a gourmet meal after weeks of crummy fast food.

I'll hook up an optical cable directly from the PS4 to the receiver and see if that helps.
    This was the answer. All good now.

    Yeah I love the hifi sound but no real opportunities to immerse myself with 2 kids running around all the time.

    You don't want to listen to children's songs in HiFi?

    Anyone familiar with modern high end components? Specifically the modern replacement for the CD player: the HD music streaming.

    I used to have:
    2 Floorstander Speakers
    1 CD Player
    1 Preamp/Processor
    1 2 Channel Amp

    But nowadays I have read the best sound comes from HD Audio streaming services over the old CD. So what piece of equipment replaces the CD player and gets the HD Audio stream into Pre Amp/Processor?

    That looks like it focuses on more on the app side from a computer. I'm looking for more of stand alone components that would sit with the other stereo components.
