Absolutely agree with Stuart on the virtues of the 252 with vinyl. Having run my RP8 / Aria through the 272 - where it never quite...

Gavin, Enjoy your trip to Chepstow and collecting the SL2s. We look forward to hearing how you get on with the set up. As you know there...

They looked in superb condition. You will love them. Have a go at the set up following Richard’s excellent instructions.

Congratulations Gavin. Are you purchasing that Maple pair that was for sale on EBay - in Chepstow?

At Bristol Jason’s view was that the NDX2 would get pretty close to the NDS. That said I’m not sure if that was meant with or without PS...

Those with or aspiring to own a NDS should not lose heart in the midst of all of this ND555 hyperbole. It is always the same with a new...

I recall Jason from Naim saying, at the Bristol show, that the NDX2 will not be far off the NDS. I took that as an indication that the...

You wouldn’t become legally embroiled with Naim in any event. Your sales contract is with your dealer so that is where you should turn...

Kahn, they definitely sounded better with the grills on but, that said, I only tried it once and they looked a bit crap with no grills...

Kahn, I’d strongly recommend getting a new set. They were designed to be played with the grills on, they sound better with them on and...

If you afford it go for the DR now. That way you will not need to be without music for 4-6 weeks while Naim upgrade it and it will be...

If you have the glass shelves then Tom Tom sell the fraim cups and balls which you could use to support the glass.

Fab. Enjoy. They are phenomenal speakers, especially with a 300😃

Great news! How was the set up?

Kahn, Where are you getting these SL2s from - a dealer or a private individual? Taking delivery of one speaker but not the other at the...

Are those the pair that Rob (Mort2k) is selling? look forward to hearing how you get on

Kahn, Tom Tom agreed to manufacture a run of these SL2s replica grills after the original stock of Naim grills ran out. Yes they are...

Hi Phil, I’m interested in your observations on having the Rp10 PS hooked up to the non dedicated mains; if that is what you were...

Kahn, If you’ve got a good deal lined up for these rosewood SL2s and you reckon you can rearrange your room to accommodate them then...

If you can’t get the SL2s in optimal position; hard up against a solid masonry wall with space to breath then I wouldn’t go for them.

Kahn, If you chose the SL2s which, if the set up arrangements are optimal as others have described, they will certainly outperform the...

I recall hearing the Contour 20s on the end of a NDS, 252, 300 set up at the Bristol show last year. Absolutely stunning. Great purchase....

Re: CDS3
Well it’s up to you. You are being given sensible advice here as to how to get your CDS3 serviced. If you’ve made your mind up that you...

Re: CDS3
It wouldn’t be for free. I’d expect the dealer to add a modest margin on the service cost that Naim charges it.

Re: CDS3
It’s the dealer’s role to act as the interface between Naim and its end users. That is why Naim appointed the dealer. The dealer is...

Re: CDS3
It would need to go through your dealer back to Naim. They don’t have customers sending kit direct. Great purchase BTW. You won’t regret...

It does Nigel and the uplift in SQ was obviously dramatic when I switched them round😂

That was my view too Nigel. However I did read a previous post (I think @Graham H ) from a couple of years back where he was installing...

That has been my general experience as well. The 24 bit downloads I have don’t really sound any different on my 272 based system to...

The best upgrade would be to lose the “power bar” and plug your Powerlines directly into unswitched wall sockets with dedicated mains.
S3

Reply by S3

It's a tight fit but just ok... Thanks Nigel for the advice on required distances.....

Reply by S3

The fact that (at least as of this time last year) Naim still used the SL2s to voice its electronics says it all for me....

Good for you Bert. I’m sure it will be worth every penny (or Euro) and I’m looking forward to hearing all about it when it lands.

I may be wrong but have a feeling that, for statement, Naim deliver and install themselves. I recall Jason Gould telling me about a...

Agreed. You don’t need a cardboard strip to position the grill with a small gap. As long as it’s not touching the lower cabinet gap size...

I believe HH has bought a pair and a couple of other members did too. Feedback was excellent but I’m sure Nigel will be along to confirm.
S3

Reply by S3

That was certainly my understanding. SL is manufactured by a third party to Naim specs.

.....Or I thought I was! As you all know the 555 doesn’t come with a Burndy so I had to order a new SXPS with it back in early March. My...

I’ve been close to going back to CD; the quality of players on the used market - like the fabulous CDS3 for under £2k - is so tempting.
