Also Lyngdorf tdai 2170 has the roomp perfect i think.
What do you think of this all-in-one?
Could Nad m10 be a valid alternative?
Question: why do you think that atom headphone edition is better than atom classic? What are the differences? Considering I never use the headphone.
I thought nova was superior then the atom also for dac, circuits and other components, not only for the power.
Are you sure that atom + nap200 will be better than nova? What's the benefit of this solution compared to the nova?
I considerer an used nova around 2700-3000£. Nap200 used around 850£ + atom headphone edition (only new) around 2400£ = the same price of a used nova.
Is it possible to connect atom classic (used ) with the nap200? (also used)
In this case the total price will be less than nova (used)
It's another good solution but is it possible to play the music without switch the amplifier (trigger)?
How can I connect all these devices in order to make easy and direct listening to music or watch a movie (arc)?
1. I haven't heard the Lyngdorf, but yes, of course, they're both perfectly valid options. I prefer Naim to Nad, which is enough for me to change the speakers if they're a bad match with the way they're positioned in the room so that they wouldn't require fiddling with DSP (room correction stuff).
I also forgot to add Hegel H190 (or 120 if the 190 is too dear) to that list. It's very, very good.
But as I say, you have to audition.
2. I'm not sure it's better, I only suggested it because the headphone Atom doesn't have a power section, which you wouldn't be using if you used it in conjunction with a Nap200. If, on the other hand, it would be easier to get a normal Atom on the sh market, it probably would be just as good. Hell, you could even try it on it's own and then add a Nap 200. But yes, imo the 200 is better than what's inside the Nova - just know that the Nova is ALREADY very good.
3. If it's not an all-in-one or separates from the same brand that have some sort of trigger connector or link or something, you'd probably have to switch the input manually or via the app on the source device. Think of the streamer as the hub of the thing, since everything will be going out of it, you'd only be changing sources on the streamer. If it's a streaming pre into a power amp, you'd also be controlilng the volume via that app, if it's a normal streamer, you'd be using the remote of the integrated to control the volume. It's not as inconvenient as it sounds, but this is probably how it would work. It depends on the specific setup.
