The Magnum Dynalab 809t Internet tuner allow you to create and organize your favorite list of stations via an Internet Radio Portal website. The Frontier Silicon radio portal is an Internet network provider that supplies over 24,000 stations (and growing) from all over the world. Users are able to "browse" stations by genre, station, and country.
This feature allows you to have a full list of the stations you listen to regularly on one page instead of having to search each time. Some stations come in sounding better than other stations. You should try to select Internet stations that are using 192k or higher for the best sound quality (you should test this). Stations using lower numbers (such as 48k, 64k, etc) do not sound as good. The portal allows you to select music type (classical, jazz, etc) by speed.
As per Magnum Dynalab instructions, the setup for the Frontier Silicon radio portal is free and very easy to use. The portal provides an excellent search capability to help you identify the Internet stations you want to listen to. You build your list on the computer and select the stations you want to listen to on the Internet tuner. This is an excellent feature and makes the Internet radio selection process much easier. New stations can be easily added or deleted using the Frontier Silicon radio portal. See
The Frontier Silicon interface allows you to use your computer to setup your stations, which then will be displayed on your 809t Internet tuner. In addition, you also can select and add to your account any Internet station if you know the URL. It is much easier to use your computer to create your list of stations and then access them from your 809t. See their manual for instructions for setting up the portal:
The Magnum Dynalab 809t supports both Wi-Fi and wired connections. For music streaming from the 809t, I strongly suggest you use a wired connection for the best results (my opinion). You might want to test both option and then decide.
As an option, you can also plug a CD player into the 809t's COAX 75 ohms input and use its DAC and not the one in your CD player. You might need a Neutrik Transformer to convert your source output to the 809t's COAX 75 ohms input. SEE:
I suggest you run balanced cables from the MD 809t to your Mcintosh MA 7900 amplifier.
As posted above, please contact Magnum Dynalab about installing the special caps on your 809t tuner. Ask them to explain the benefits and the costs, etc.
