  1. Upgrading to ND5XS with Masterclass amp... 2019 model, perfect condition, original box with paperwork, remote and powering lite lead. £2950. Base in York, but willing to travel 100 miles to deliver (free if asking price paid) Cheers, Richard.
  2. Good working order, serviced and capacitors replaced by Naim in Salisbury around ten years ago, little-used since then. Bought new in 1984. Holden & Fisher transformer. Some slight marks to edge of case, and in centre - shown in photos. PM me for more pics. £360
  3. SOLD Naim V1 DAC/Pre/Headphone amp in excellent condition, with remote, boxed. £700 RRP £1499
  4. Hello. As the title suggests I am wanting to go for a naim pre-amp. Ideally a Nac 72 but open to other suggestions / offers. I do have a Naim Nait 3 integrated in fantastic condition that was recently recapped & serviced at Naim, that I will be selling on or trading.
  5. You may have seen that I've been running SBLs aktiv with a Linn ADSM/Exaktbox digital crossover & DAC/2 x Naim 250s and loving the transformation which I described as having seven league boots on compared to my Naim Snaxo active . But when a pair of SL2s came up at the right price it was an opportunity too good to be missed. I picked them a couple of weeks ago I installed them using the same digital crossover as I'd used with the SBLS (after all Naim used the same Snaxo for SBLs & SL2s) They sounded great, more bass control, more separation around vocals & cymbals. If SBLs are like your young mate who is larger than life & great fun to be around, the SL2s are the person they've matured into. Something a bit more rounded, not quite so in your face, having bags of authority & still great fun to hang out with. And they look great so added WAF, not that I have a W whose A I have to F The filters/digital crossovers for my SBLs were created for me by Neill Hallworth / @sunbeamgls of www.speakerfilters.com and when he heard that I'd got the SL2s, he offered to come & create some dedicated bespoke filters rather than just using the SBL ones. He advised me that, although the drivers were very similar (my SBLs were Mk 1) they would have different impedances, the cabinet volumes would be different, there would be phase difference etc etc and he was confident that he would be able to extract more performance from them. So yesterday Neill called with his majik box of triks. The first step was to take electrical diver measurements which, together with some base crossover information from Naim, were then plugged into exakt design to create an initial filter. Before loading that into my Exaktbox, we reset the speakers to passive & took a frequency response scan as a reference point. V1 of the filters was a good starting point although, as with the passive crossover, there was a big dip at 560hz (which I'd read about in a review being down to a diaphragm resonance) with a hump either side but high frequency roll off better controlled. So Neil lowered the bass/mid roll off point, added a boost at the dip point and a couple of cuts either side to smooth out the humps. With this iteration the dip was significantly reduced & the whole frequency response was much flatter. Being a non -ported design, the bass starts to roll off at about 120hz so lastly Neil added a subtle lift from this point down. So how do they sound now. Well I wasn't ready for or, expecting the magnitude of the improvement. All the strengths of musicality & PRaT are there in spades but now hi hats really shimmered, recording venue acoustics were tangible, bass lines are so solid, the space around instruments & performers improved, the decay on notes seemed to hang in the air. Boundary speakers are not renowned for their imaging but this has tightened up so that you can place individual performers, or even where the cymbals in the drum kit, are. The mid range has a much smoother integration. The slight mid/high frequency brightness had been tamed & the somewhat bass light presentation was gone leaving me wondering if I would still need my sub. (I have still got it in the system but I've dialled it down about 30% :)) The end result is so impressive, I've done no work today, I've been sat here listening to track after track. A big thank you to Neil - another awesome job. If you want to come & have a listen to Exaktly what SL2s Aktiv should sound like, (Birmingham, West Midlands) or to have a chat, just get in touch - you will be very welcome - just be prepared to radically rethink what Aktiv can do for you

  11. i have for sale a NAC92 which is actually a converted NAIT3 pre amp and NAP90 power including the Naim connecting cable. pre is fitted with MC ‘K' phono boards. the conversion from integrated to power is an official mod as there were blank link plugs with ‘refer to manual’ on the rear as the nac92 was just the pre-amp part of a nait (apologies to Naim aficionados who know all this already) both are VGC but the NAP90 has a few scratches on the top casing, the NAC92 is very good apart from one scratch that is only visible if you get the light at the right angle, i have tried to show this in the pics. also included is a Musical Fidelity V-DAC II and a Russ Andrews power pack II with kimber cable. again in VGC, plus a Din to phono VanDamme Studio blue cable to connect dac to pre amp. everything works as it should, no noisy pots or other issues. £375 for the lot collected from SE London. i don’t have boxes but happy to post at cost with carrier of your choice but insist on insuring it and not using Hermes (too many lost parcels) happy to do a demo.
  12. UPDATED 27 Oct - to offer for sale at £1500 £1250 I'm retiring and going travelling whilst I'm still young enough (55) to enjoy it so I'm selling my complete stack rather than put it in storage for 5-10 years I can pretty much find the going price for the usual stuff like the Supernait, CD3.5, Flatcap, Stageline N, DTC etc but struggling to identify a fair price for the LP12 & Armageddon, the answer seems to be "how long is a piece of string?" It's a tidy deck fitted with a Cirkus bearing & sub-chassis, Rega RB301 arm and low hours Dynavector DV-10X5 cartridge. The only faults I can see are some micro abrasions on the lid, a small blemish to the front RH corner of the deck and the olive light doesn't come on the PSU. Coincidentally, it's exactly 8 years ago today that Cymbiosis serviced it and fitted the Cirkus bits. Any advice on how to price or input is much appreciated. Thanks Mark
  13. FS: Naim CD3.5 £275 (£450 with FlatCap) Working down the stack now as more items come up for sale. This time it's Naim's ever-popular workhorse of a CD Player, my CD3.5. It will come packed in the original box with Remote Control, Manual & spare puck. The spare puck comes with a health warning though as I can't remember if it was a faulty one that I replaced a couple of years ago. I can't test it though as all the CDs went out the door last week It's in cracking condition and is up for sale alongside my FlatCap (£225) of the same same generation. I'd be happy with £450 for the CD3.5 and Flatcap if you wanted them as a pair. Collection from near Banbury preferred but willing to post at Buyer's expense and risk. Thanks Mark
  14. FS: 3 x Naim cables as below: Black SNAIC4 (NA-0054) - £55 SOLD Black SNAIC5 (NA52) - £55 SOLD Grey Naim Interconnect (NA34) - £40 Collection near Banbury or will post Thanks Mark
  15. FS: NACA5 (white 2x4m) with Naim Plugs & Banana c/w 4 x Naim plug spares £125 ONO The title pretty much says it all, 2 x 4m lengths of white NACA5 with Naim plugs soldered on one end and banana plugs on the other. There are also 4 x spare Naim plugs Collection from near Banbury preferred but will ship at Buyer's cost. Thanks Mark
  16. FS: Naim Stageline N £245 with 5/4 interconnect Suitable for MM or, as I have been using it, good for a high output MC cartridge such as the Dynavector 10X5. An immaculate little box and comes with a 5/4 interconnect that I used to connect to my Supernait (that's also for sale here) but it really came alive when I lit it up with a Teddy Pardo Dual TeddyCap (another item for sale here) Collection from Banbury preferred but happy to ship at Buyer's cost and risk. Thanks Mark
  17. FS: Naim Flatcap £225 Along with my CD3.5 here I'm selling my Flatcap with SNAIC5. Although they are listed separately, I would be happy to sell them as a pair for £50 cheaper at £450. The FlatCap is in very good condition, comes with the manual and is packed in the original box. Collection from near Banbury is preferred but willing to send at buyer's cost & risk. Thanks Mark
  18. FS: Supernait £1100 The big sell off continues... I bought this amp on first listen and have loved it since for its clarity with any source and excellent DAC. But if you’re reading this, I don’t need to tell you any of that. It’s been on the same shelf since I bought it and is in excellent condition with very few minor cosmetic scratches. Supplied in original box with manual and remote control. Collection from Banbury much preferred but could ship at buyers cost and risk. Mark
  19. Good Morning All, I realise SQ is a subjective thing but I'm wondering which Burndy cable is people on this site believe is 'best', a Naim original or one from Witch Hat or Terry Pardo? Regards Richard
  20. I'm looking for a Burndy cable to fit between a Supercap and an SNAXO 3-6 - too much to hope somebody just happens to have one lying around???? Regards Richard
  21. Fellow Listeners, I'm source hunting and had an interesting demo today with the chance to listen to the: 1. new NAD C658 https://nadelectronics.com/product/c-658-bluos-streaming-dac/ 2. Naim ND5 XS2 https://www.naimaudio.com/product/nd5-xs-2 3. Chord Qutest with Sbooster external power supply (300 euro) and my Bluesound Node 2. Speakers were new model Dynaudio Confidence 20s and amp was a Hegel 190. I probably should have chosen the ATC SCM 40 (Closer in style to my Spendor), but the 20s were already set up and I didn't want to trouble the fellow. As I onlyy use Tidal, that's all we used, though he did use it through Roon. I wonder if that influences sound? Briefly, The NAD is more of the Node2. Similar "house sound" with more of everything. More air, more detail, nice weight. The Naim is crisper, more articulate and offered a slightly brighter profile. On the Naim instruments are easier to pick out, but it lacks the rich tonal quality and weight of the NAD and Node on solo piano, Brad Mehldau's Day is Done, "Martha My Dear." On Steely Dan's Gaucho I preferred the Naim -- everything is organized and the individual instruments are separate and together. It was easy to listen to the "whole" and pick out instruments if you wanted to listen to the nuances. Rapid and light percussion work on a cymbal was also preferable on the Naim, it has nice timing I suppose. The Qutest through the Node2 was almost a pleasant mix of the two. I've demoed it once before at home, but what it brought to the table today was more noticeable. I did not find it analytical, it had the requisite details and weight as well as sonic authenticity. The Qutest was quite fluid. One track we used for all set ups, including the Node2 by itself, was "Kingdom" off of Calle Rasmussen's One. The tune is over nine minutes in length and broken up into three parts. It had everything required for a nice analysis. I'm not sure anyone of them was better than the other, in that it was more about presentation of the music and how one might personally prefer it. What can I say, I error on the side of subjectivism. The new Auralic Altair G1 Streaming DAC had not arrived in the shop yet, but he said it will arrive in September so I'll be back for so more comparison shopping then. I've heard heard the Linn Akurate DSM/3 used only as a source. If I go with a Linn it will be a used one. Budget is about 3k.

  25. Hi I currently have an aging system comprised of Rotel 991 SA CD player Naim nac72/hicap/nap140 amp mission 773 speakers Android TV with Spotify premium connected to a Cheap £100 Topping DAC via Toslink Synology NAS I’ve been amazed at how good the optically linked TV can sound with Spotify at 320kbpm and wondered if addding a better DAC might improve things further ? The bit I don’t understand is what difference does it make changing the source of the digital information entering the DAC. Would I benefit from a better source than the TV ? If so what would you recommend and why? Btw - budget ~ £700 Many thanks
