I've got a supernait2 as my first Naim product as It was the first one meeting my needs that for a long time I couldn't explain in words! I have always been looking to what I' ve found to be defined as "attack, transient attack and crispy edge midrange" that naim seem to have a strong degree!!
so here is my question:
how do you think this characteristic interface and interact with the definitions of a warm sound vs cold sound....and the same with less or more harmonics and detail??
I mean the sound with good transient attack like "grainy" textured midrange (in a good sense) and that "pops" almost scratchy but that I prefer....it's like having a more drier mids....but I perceive more PRESENCE at the same time.....what I do not get is that usually what is defined as a warm sound had all of these things rounded off a bit like some saturation with softer edges....so does what I mean goes in a "colder" sound direction??
I really need to make this clear cause noone seems to get what I am looking for when buying new stuff and expecially on the net I've made a lot of mistakes getting wrong equipment!!
Same goes for detail and harmonics....can they live with all this or it is something where one excludes the other??
and finally...after many euros spent....I think you are right that naim stuff pairs with naim stuff and nothin else as the balance is soo sensitive that even a small change can bring it in a totally different direction!
thanx in advance to all of you!
