I have purchased them, they are just like the originals, it wouldn't surprise me if Tom Tom sourced them from the same place as naim. mario

Re: ND555
Question is, will the 555PS power the new nd555 or will there be another power supply? Mario.

The ARO is not rocket science, its main design feature is SIMPLICITY! It is very well thought out, very well made and works beautifully.

many will say 500 passive will beat 3 x 250 active, I would have to hear the comparison to believe it, I think active is a different...

Hi Jon, When you have a 300, getting two more is a real stretch so rather than miss the opportunity of active operation, get another 2 x...

Hi there Zoot, I have had NBL's active with 2 x 250 DR's and a standard 300 on the tweeters. I now have these amplifiers on DBL's and I...
