Re: Chord Qutest

Now thats very interesting, i was in a Hi fi shop recently and the guy was raving about the dac in the ndx2 One of the things that puts me off Naim is that you are paying for a supposedly very good DAC in their streamers (and CDP) when I already have one! Don't get me started on the weird cabling.....

Re: Advice on pricing - VABBG

I would advertise these separately. I think you are limiting your market.

Choice and taste is a wonderful thing in hi-fi. When I sell my Mono X, I would not want to sell them only to people who like Wilson Benesch.

This probably explains why Naim recommends changing the caps every ten years even if Naim rarely uses half-size boxes.

Re: Boris

With this in mind I see no other option but another general election as we get close to the crunch time.... I still don't think any Tory will vote for general election that they will lose. I do think MPs will vote against no deal. Is it possible that Boris will call an election just before 31st to ...

Re: Serious speaker help!

Even if I risk offending the many PMC owners here, I have spent a day listening to various PMC speakers at a dealer in Hull and then gone home and decided that the bass was great but where was the mid-range compared with my Wilson Benesch. I would consider going further up the Dali range if you like...

Re: Spending a pleasant afternoon with mates.

My DAC is probably better than Cyrus DACXP Sig and I have best power amps Cyrus have ever made. Of course CD is limited and my speakers might be better.
