An oldie I know, I borrowed one a while ago from SO and liked it, but it wouldn't actually work with the soundcard I was trying to use it with! I've seen a few going really cheap though, does anyone know if one would work with an Airport Express? ...

Like many people I have no desire or justifiable requirement for the HDX. I am sure it sounds wonderful, however it clearly only covers the needs of the minority. I realy believe Naim are completly missing a trick, why would anyone (other than a...

How would I load a track thatís only available via download onto an HDX? Do I need to burn it to CD and then load it that way? Also I have a few CDs that are only available as MP3s. Is it possible to load them onto an HDX from the CD drive? If I did...

Well, the title pretty much states the topic. I have a SB3 that up until now I've been using it only for Radio. So now its time to start ripping my cds. From past threads Dave Deaver has said that Naim has come up with a better way to rip. I can't...

An interesting development occurred yesterday in relation to music downloads and servers. The band Nine Inch Nails released their new album yesterday and it is free and available only via download (for now). The interesting thing, especially in light...

A friend of mine sent me this link. HD tracks Looks like you need to register to get the free AIFF, FLAC, or 320kbps MP3.Since this is funded by Chesky guys, I don't know about the musical contents, however. They promise 96/24 files in the...

So we have this fantastic sounding (we hope) ripping, storage and playback device. Can we access content stored on the HDX through a network ? You have said that you have licensed Apple files but what exactly are the formats that you have licensed ?...

HiI don't particularly like the sound of iTunes tracks going through my set (no DAC) but they have some great iTunes exclusive collections and live sets. These are not available to buy on CD or anywhere else, hence I am looking to gain better sound...

Talking to another forum member, we discussed some concerns about storing music on hard disk, particular if the disk was formatted as a FAT disk like it is on some Windows devices (and indeed my trusty old Yamaha HD-CDR 1300). Firstly, how does the...

To those much more in the know than myself...As the 555PS has two outputs for the CD555, I was curious as to whether - if it were powering the CDS3 - it could also power the HDX??Id be grateful for your help as my 'ambition' might then span to having...

Just read the blurb on the Naim website; at what level of Naim CDP hierarchy is the CD playback? I assume the hard drive replay can't be any better than this? With/without a 555PS to power it?Neil

Hi there,Could you tell me if the HDX is shipping at present ? and if not the first shipment date ?I am assuming that dealers will be receiving units before customers for demo, when would a dealer expect to receive their demo unit ?Thanks,Roy.

Naim have opted for a 'one box' solution with the HDX.Linn have provided an end point to turn a provided stream into music.It seems to me that the advantages of the Naim route include:Simplicity from a user perspective; andControl of what is fed into...

Hello:How does the HDX compare to cdx2 bare. Also, how does it compare to CDS3 if we add a power supply to HDX?
