True - actually a new 272 might tempt people to skip the Nova- it certainly would apply in my case. The new entry level Naims have a simialr look ad feel and with the white lighting echo the Statement. Maybe a 272 mk 2 in the same mould with screen, new streaming platform and DR power supply for 5k? Is there a Naim suggestion thread? Could be quite useful for Naim to get the 'Voice of the Customer'
