I have NDS (2018) and 555DR with 252 / 300DR into SL2. Also a RP8 / Aria as my “other” source. The difference in musical involvement between RP8 and the NDS is significant. I’m trying to work out why the NDS isn’t doing it for me to the extent that I’m considering just running the RP8 and possibly buying a NAT01 instead of the NDS / 555. The only thing I can think of is the interconnect from NDS into the 252. It’s the standard Naim one but surely that was designed to have the NDS sounding as Naim intended without “needing” to buy another interconnect for goodness knows what cost? And yes I have removed all 4 transit bolts from the NDS.
Anyone else experienced similar?
