Well, after demoing speakers and the Naim DAC, today I walked home with..........................

A black Sonos S5!!!!! Sounds fantastic for the bedroom :), plus set it up in about 10seconds. Damn Sonos is easy :)

Plus deposit paid for the REGA DAC (blind purchase better be good!!)

I know you liked the Naim DAC when you heard it the other day. I assume you didn't like it as much as £2000.

That plus it was far too revealing of the weaknesses of my R3's, also no grey snaic so was tested with HILINE which would have put the price up to £2500.

As well as the speakers @ £1500, twas far far far too much money, ideal yes, affordable no.

Got a nice ex dem pair of cans to go with my Sonos S5 and am chuffed to bits.

Dave, merry XMAS to you, no still got the old TT / CDP and pre power, however running sonos in via Beresford Caiman so am "upgrading that" as I love the sound of the Saturn and the rega DAC is an improved verion of the Saturns DAC. May even end up using the Saturn as transport. Cant see me buying another CDP now.

TB,

Looking to change my Cyrus Pre for a Naim NAC 202 in a couple of months. This will leave me DACless! I was considering the Rega DAC as a cheaper option to the Naim DAC. I will be very interested to hear how you get on with it with your pre-power...keep us updated thanks.
