In the latest series of Unforgotten (ITV) one of the characters had a 272 on display in his London home’s office. Couldn’t see anything...

Re: NDS
It is. Can’t stop listening to it. The 252 has brought it to life 😃

Re: NDS
Slightly bizarrely my 2018 model was running v4.5. I upgraded to 4.6 and didn’t notice any negative impact. Regards David

Re: NDS
So I powered down, removed the NDS burndies, gave them their massage, cleaned the glass shelves etc and reconnected. It’s different.

Re: NDS
The system sounds very good indeed. I’m just curious as to why my RP8 sounds more involving than the NDS/555 which, until the ND555 came...

Thanks all. HH - With the 272 there was no significant difference between RP8 and the streamer but I view that as more a consequence of...

I found the 272 preamp really held back what my RP8 was capable of even with a 555DR powering it. Replacing the 272 with a 252 I’ve gone...

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

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?

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...

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...

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 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.

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