Lol whats the dear oh dear for i appreciate any advice given but if your a bit cheesed off with my posts why answer. Anyway whats wrong with the solo neo plus power amp the unit dows have pre outs and ive read that the naim uniti plus power amp is good upgrade dont see the solo neo being an different thanks for advice tho
The Solo is a very capable unit. I've not heard the Neo but have heard the original Solo. The Neo retails at around £1300, the Uniti is between £2300- £2990 approx. The Solo, whether the original or the Neo, has the guts (amplification and CDP) of the Arcam entry-level A18 and CD17 and it's just tweaked a little. The FMJ P38 was designed to go with A38, top of the range. So it should sound fine and be a real decent upgrade to a standalone Neo.
Considering the A18 retails around £600 mark, adding a P38 maybe an overkill. But this is guesswork.
We can only offer advice, so take in your Audiolabs (might seem a lot of faffing but it'll be worth it) and comparing it other combos you suggested.
BTW, what sources do you use?
