In praise of ND555

Posted by: Jonas Olofsson on 12 January 2019

6 months later, almost 25 years after buying my first CDI-72-140, I have to say that the ND555 is a true game changer. I have owned or used more or less everything built by Naim (almost but not all) and the pleasure this device have give me so far is...outstanding! 

Its like the first CDS, or 52, or SBL active, its just a great piece of audio equipment. 

I listened more now then ever, the and chose live recordings, which I always hated, as much as possible. Itís like that article I read from Malcolm Steward many moons ago when he wanted nothing but the actual artist to enter his room, saying that he just heard himself playing. 

Itís now possible thanks to ND555.

Interesting, it takes me back to earlier years with my Arcam transport into Deltec dac, with NAC62/90.... it was great for itís time. Then I heard the CDS, and the the ND555 does the same.

The ND555 is very special indeed.

The musical enjoyment that the ND555 is capable of is truly astonishing a remarkable achievement indeed.
