Would I be better running the rp10 through the 552 and forget about the Rega aria?

You need to have a listen ... then YOU can decide, as opposed to others making the decision for you.
You simply cannot come to a proper informed decision by just seeking opinions and without an actual audition.
What they like may not be in your best interests and not to your personal taste ... but it's your money and your choice.
So I do this how? There is no Naim/Rega dealer within 7 hours of my house. Sure in a perfect world I would have my dealer bring over half his shop to demo at my home. Problem is, the dealer lives half way across the USA. No dealer will be able to duplicate my exact situation. That’s why I’m asking these questions, hoping that a person/expert could help me make an informed decision. I can’t miss 2 days of work, fly across the country, spend 2 nights in a hotel, etc., that cost me as much as an rp10.
