its great when I'm working 60 hours a week. Don't have time to futz around with the stereo.
yestrday - decided the stereo didn't aesthetically appealing on the fraim. Most pics show the naim gear edges all the way to the front and tried to do the same.
30 minutes later - system sounds super bright. Unbearably so. Maybe not bright / certainly noisy.
Hmm / maybe the cable dressing got messed up? Residual mucrophonics?
last night tried to fix the cabling as best as I could. No help.
maybe I've gotten used to the Harbeth sound and kudos too bright?
went to bed early.
this am - system still not recovered. Still too bright sounding.
Pushed the 552 about 1/2 - 1 an inch in towards the back.
system is singing again.
at times like this, I wonder why I bother with Naim. Sell the lot of go back to a nait 5.
who am I kidding. I have no delusions of being able to downsize. Still - 300 to 250 probably worth it - If it takes away some setup stuff. Next step 500?
