Prompted by my friends on here, I'm starting to think a bit more outside the box and I am seriously considering doing this in stages now and going for a Naim Nait 5i amp. This would mean using it with my Marantz CD63SE for a while and ideally with the Quad 11Ls for quite some time, so I would be interested in hearing how people think this might work out? My plan for the CD player would be to eventually buy a Rega Apollo. The other options I am considering are the XTZ A100 D3 and C100 amp/CD player, the Rega Apollo/Brio 3 combination (initially with the Quads but eventually with Rega RS1s), or the Audio Analogue Crescendo amp with the 11Ls and then, later on, the matching CD player. Any thoughts or other ideas gratefully received.
