WTD - Power amp for Naim Atom

Recommended Posts

I'd like to try a bigger power amp with my Naim Uniti Atom, a Naim would be the obvious choise but in theory any amp capable of working well with my PMC FB!+ speakers would be OK might work, prefer collection, cash payment, I'm in Belper. 

Around £1000, maybe a bit more for the right amp.....

I have a MF M3si listed here for sale if thats of interest in a trade deal?

Thanks

Paul

It'd be worth you trading up to a Star or Nova to avoid the need for interconnects and have a better user experience (one box).

Maybe but there's a heck of a price differential between an Atom and a Nova, a resellable power amp is a good compromise for me

Incase you're not aware when matching pre and power amps impedance matching is very important the output and input impedance of the pre /power should be a good match there's lot's online about it and a quick google should tell you all you need to know.

I wouldn't spend £750 on a Nap 155. A Nap 200 would be a much better starting point.

Thanks for the info gents....think 200 would be the minimum if its a Naim. been looking at some Chinese Naim clone Looky-likeys at a 1/10th of the price - maybe worth a punt?

Have you tried the Atom into a line in on your MF? Might give you an idea how it might work with a MF power amp?
