Naim Hi line vs Chord Sarum T

analogmusic posted:

anyway - I guess I'm being only a bit (!) annoying. Some people here spent many thousands on Chord cables and it must be annoying to hear my views. But then they would have made the comparisons and spent the money wisely.

and still there is the debate - like 282 vs 252 -- it shall continue.... 

 

Amusing/annoying depending on my mood, but nothing to do with whatever I've spent on Chord cables .

Just to add to Richards post above, bear in mind that I found the standard lavender grey Naim I/c to be preferable to the Hi-Line between phono stage/PSU and preamp. Of course that was with a Prefix, so maybe now I have a Superline I should try again...

If I'm not mistaken, the Hi-Line, was introduced over an decade ago. The reason for it's introduction, was to improve on mechanical isolation. One thing for sure, Naim doesn't introduce a new product, without doing its homework. 

Hence, ten years later, the SL technologies.

Naim joins in with the posh expensive Cables!

Can't speak from experience, but I would imagine, a company thar focuses primarily on cables, might do a better job than a company that is noted for its Amps!

TT ~ Linn

Amps ~ Naim

Speakers~ Wilson

Cables~ Nordest, etc.... Chord...

Just saying!

 

Pioneers of the World of Audio!

PS. Cables has vastly improved over the last decade!

Maybe CHORDS entry, or middle of the road cables, might out perform Naim's Hi-Line!

Remember when it was suggested not to tighten Naim's Din!

Mechanical Isolation, shortly Naim's Hi-Line was introduced!

Thank you, for all your help.

I am still not shure, if the Chord Sarum T is better or only different to the Hi line, esp. the bass,

which (to me) seem deeper and with more punch on my system, while details and the highs are much more refined

in my system. This was comparing Hi line 5pin din to RCA Chord Sarum T on my NDS.

The Sarum T DIN to DIN interconnect is a massive upgrade from Hi-Line.

What you maybe experiencing is the degraded sonic quality of using RCA type connecters on Naim components.
