No Tony, currently only one 500 but I may have an opportunity to get a second, and hence my question: better 2x 500s vs. 1 x 500 DRed

Let us know how it goes when the power distributor arrives; rather interested.

a Metronome C8+ DAC (+ streamer) may be taking the place of my beloved NDS + 555PS DR

Yes Finkfan, thanks. I was in fact thinking of their RCA/RCA version as I may be using a non Naim source.

It would appear that Naim do not service their passive crossovers.
