I would arrange a demo to compare the two before parting with cash
Good call, Frank. The Brio-R was really good, but different, and not necessarily better than the Mira-R.
At the end of the demo, here's what i did:
I told the dealer I'm trading in the Mira3 and the Rega Dac for the Nait XS and the Saturn and got a fairly good deal.
I later called him to hold off on the Saturn to give me a few days to mull over the source. He was happy to give me a Saturn for a home demo once my Nait XS comes in.
Still not quite sure what I want to do about the source.
I know one of the members is using a Saturn + Rega DAC with the Nait XS. I'm not sure I want to go that route. At that price point, I'm almost at what the Naim DAC will cost, and I could just use my squeezebox since the Naim apparently has a pretty good buffer to get rid of any jitter introduced by the sb. Anyway, way too much money...
Any suggestions that make long term sense?
One option is the Saturn today, with the Naim Dac in a few years when i win the lottery.
