cheers will be interesting to compare it with my old CD and tuner I've been listening to the last few days. I won't be getting anything like the best out of it with my amp and speakers so doubt it will be long before the itch returns!

Thanks all for your input. Got everything rigged up and it's a revelation. Love the sound and the convenience of streaming. Listening to all my old favourites and I've never heard them sound this good before, and finding some new stuff too. I'm using the pre-amp out on the Naim into the Power Amp Direct on the Technics amp so making use of the pre amp and have the convenience of being able to use the volume remote. It means I've got two volume controls in use but it's fine for now.

Yay. It's a steal for the price you got it at, enjoy.

It's putting a big grin on my face for sure, a massive step up in SQ. And yet I keep wondering how it would sound with a dedicated power amp... I'd forgotten how this game works, there's always a weak link! And how expensive it is 🤣

OK so the bug's definitely got me. Just bought a Naim 250DR power amp to accompany the streamer.

My Monitor Audio BR2 are suddenly looking very out of their depth 😁

Hahahaha :)) enjoy

When you decide on speakers (which will be tricky), also factor in the cost of a pair of Witch Hat Phantom speaker cable, they're brilliant and made for Naim.
