Sorry I didn't Catch your NAIM

Long time stalker of these parts but as this poster has not been featured in the thread so far, I thought I would share another piece of classic Naim advertising. It's part of a pair (the other one i have is "I'm Sorry....), both got many years ago when putting together my CB/Olive system.

These are from my ' 85 calendar i still own along with 250 chocolate box.

I also came along with this one on Tom Tom Audio pages

I' m pretty much sure he's Alex Montenegro. An Anglo Italian  guy . He was a huge Linn- Naim enthusiast who also wrote many brilliant reviews for Italian magazine Superstereo. I kenw him at Milan Audio Fair in Sept. ' 84

Presumably,  Naim will own the copyright to these images so they should listen to their customers and make them available in their merchandise section on their site. After all, their official repair centres are happy enough to take our money to have kit of the same vintage repaired or overhauled so why not a poster from the same vintage?

Better still, how about a free poster or T shirt dished out by said centre as a Naim 'Thank you' for spending your money with them and keeping the vintage kit alive and well... A small price surely, for loyal support of the brand.

Brilliant idea, plus add a free black box of one's choice

Alex worked for naim for a couple years in an export role, he did a great job.

Hi Paul,

He was really a nice guy, i met him in Milan at my very beginning of  my Naim adventure with a 42/110 combo

He also had a close relationship with Mr. Antonio Trebbi of Audiotech and Vanino Spinelli of Audiograffiti.

Have you an idea where is living or doing now ?

Hi Paul,

Very nice memories for me too ! The early days at Milano fairs wth Audiotech crew and you at Milan Top Audio.

I still remember the preview in 1987 of Nac 52 and a teaser preview of the Aro tonearm at Top Audio hotel in '88

Regards

Roberto

Adam,
I don’t think Tony’s attempt to help someone out for something that is clearly not an equipment sale required a response of that tone or condissention.

Thanks Dupree. Sorry I can't help you. I will buy both of them myself.

Looks like there should be another rule made. Would have been better if he had stopped your post in the first place.

Hello Dupree.

I only bought one so there is another for sale.

Still think THIS is the coolest poster ever made - not only by Naim, but in general - thanks to Doug Graham, I beleve I got the last one and its in my office - and will never leave

The 3 short slogans says everything....

  • He paid the price for the music he loved
  • Now its your turn
  • Perfecting never came cheap

Naim maybe missing out on a marketing incentive here. Maybe a large limited edition hardback book with an historical account of Naim Audio advertising posters used the on dealers walls, magazines, hifi shows, carrier bag, bus shelters etc, and perhaps a re-issue of 'popular' poster sizes reproductions for modern wall art.

I've always had a particular liking for the NAC 72 in the fish tank poster, and also the high resolution Aro, can't seem to find a picture of either to post here and don't suppose they're available to buy any more. Although not sure they'd look right in my domestic setting - don't want to make my cosy home music room to look like a 1990s hifi shop, and besides; i have the real components to gawp at and admire anytime i feel the need...

Do like the idea of a large [ 300x500mm ] naim advertising poster book though; a hard back triptych black cover with olive green spine, chrome bumper edging, and an olive style naim audio cut-out logo : )

Debs

 

Great idea Debs! I just ran across an original print of the 72 in the fish tank  listed on the bay and managed to win the auction...It should be a great addition to my collection. Nicely framed they look great and I think the Aro looks especially classy in a nice black frame with heavy matting- would look great in your room!

ATB,

Mark
