Hi – I am looking for some advice regarding upgrading from an already good system (to my ears) in order to incorporate a far better level of streaming. My amp is a Rega Elicit-r and speakers PMC Twenty.23's; turntable is a Rega P25/Creek phono stage. I no longer have a CD player in my main system. Currently I stream from a NAS and access internet sources via a Raumfeld Connector - this seems to produce good results via ethernet connection but I am sure that my carefully archived (to 24 bit flac files) vast collection of LPs and also many CDs could sound a lot better. I am drawn to the Naim NAC-N 172 XS for it's streaming facilities and flexibility of inputs/well sorted app. but unsure whether a Naim NAP 155 XS - which appears to be the natural partner - is the best choice for power. Would moving up to NAP 200 DR (or at a push) a 250 DR give me tangible benefits? My Rega amp is fast, musical and powerful with detail that I love from all sources and I do not want to lose these attributes.
Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.
