First a cd5x with your nait and see what you think.
Then do the same 122x 150x at home with your cd5
I use the 5x with the 122x 150x FC 2X AND SBLs and they sound great.
I had the chance to listen to a full X series kit, it's truly wonderful at what it does, and I'm happy to ear from you that it sound great fronted by a pair of SBLs, which I own too.
My plan is probably to end up with a CDX2, 122x, 150x, Flatcap2 (for both the 122x and Headline) and... keeping the Nait 2 as a "Stageline" and "emergency" amplifier.
I'm very curious about what a CD5i could do with a 122x and 150x. The CD5i is simply doing it for me for almost 2 years now, and keeping me confortably waiting for better when the savings will allow it.
I know, I know, there's many things to try out and do. But now I'm looking for your impressions with a CD5i with a better Naim amplification than a Nait (and don't say Supernait!
). The CD5i is really something to hear with my Headline and Grado RS-1, if I could come closer to that kind of experience more with my speakers listening, I would be more than the happy man that I'm actually.
Many thanks for your inputs, Munch, Berlinants and Longmanjon, really appreciated.
