==================================================Enjoy the fruits of your hard work, I know the wait was long but it will all pay off, am sure about it
You have been 'Naimed'
========================================================What's in a naim? Well, it's a naim I'd be very, very happy to see on my shelf Congratulations!
Congratulations!. Is this that gear famous for its PRAT? I've always wanted to hear it for that reason.==================================================
The NACA5 cables are a visual treat and am sure add to the value if the sound. I am not going to bother with experimenting with speaker cables now.
Hope to have answered all questions / information requested.
Yes Gobble, it is that gear.Congratulations!. Is this that gear famous for its PRAT? I've always wanted to hear it for that reason.
Congrats mpw!! This amp should keep you happy for a long time. Same goes to your speakers, very good combination overall. Your Marantz CDP is nice. However a good Naim CDP will take you higher in the Naim game. There is something about the way they play music together, especially connected with their DIN interconnects and proprietary power cords. Music sounds unstoppable.
However you are better off skipping their entry level CDP the CD5i, the CD5x/xs is where the fun begins in a big way. Anyway, these days CD players are going out of usage very fast so you may actually end up buying their Network players.
Coming over to the subject of warm up, I have tried it many times with all my Naim gears. Naim says 48 hours of warm up is required to get them sound their best and they are absolutely correct. The sound is so much more alive after about 2 days of warm up (just switched on), after that experience when you try listen to it cold you can immediately recognize the loss of life and excitement in sound. It is very obvious. Do not worry about Spikes and voltage disturbance in general because they designed to be very robust and well protected. Only thing you may need to worry is thunder strikes.
Yes Gobble, it is that gear.
