    That is impressive, thanks Mike. What Naim integrated is equivalent to the NAD M33?

    Mikeís certainly the pro. Iím happy to talk Naim from the owner perspective. Iíve owned only Naim electronics since 2011 moving up the ladder from a Nait preamp to the 500 level system I have now.

    I just did a year subscription to Qobuz to add to what Tidal offers. Comparing it seems Qobuz sounds more ďsmoothĒ than Tidal. Anyone else hear a difference?

    I would say maybe late next year, but thatís just a guess. Yes, you would be surprised by the 590. Remember, its rated at 30 watts/channel but measures closer to 95. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk Pro

    Your characterization of the 802-D3s was what I recall from some years ago at a dealer with a sub-optimal setup. I wanted to buy but couldn't based on what I heard. The new ones sound promising.
