some people don't like Mercesdes, some people don't like apple, some people don't like Toyota. It's just opinion at the end of the day.

I loved Dave when I auditioned it, and loved it more when it came to my home. 2 years on, I love listening to music on it. Oh one thing...

feeling-Zen makes a very valid point.... I guess the only way to know for sure is to hear them side by side.

Bob to be fair, you were running your previous 282 with a non Naim PSU, so that is not the Naim intended sound. I can't see how it is...

Theres something very right about the ND555 apparent from the first note, similar to CD555 The NDS for me never has this quality.

I’m a big fan of chord DACS but I’m tempted by this particular Ndac and Ndx On their way out or not they still sound FANTASTIC
