    Re: Naim nd555

    I would love to hear a full Naim setup sometime. A taste from my Supernait 2 is pretty awesome. I can only imagine what the 500 series setup would sound like.

    Re: Naim nd555

    With Naim's one day sale a month or so ago, I bought a ND555 and 552 preamp. Just got them last week and installed them this last weekend. Out of the box, they sound pretty amazing. Can't wait to get a few weeks break in on them. Sounding great on the Magico M2s.

    Let's see -- you could go to AXPONA 2020 outside of Chicago. Or there are a few dealers with Naim setups in listening rooms. My dealer who also is outside of Chicago, for one. And somewhere in NYC??

    ND555/500DR power supply also got an absolute rave review in HiFi Critic by Martin Colloms. I think the review is on Naim's website. One of the highest rated DACs ever. Martin uses Magico S5 MKII.

    Re: Naim nd555

    I went back to Naim recently and that included replacing a Lumin X1 with Naim ND555/555PS. I felt the X1 was better than the Aurender N10/Chord Dave it replaced. It's difficult to say how much impact the Naim streamer/DAC has in my system because I've changed so much of it but I believe it's really special and I'd recommend it over the X1. Certainly in a Naim system it's a no brainer.

    Re: Naim nd555

    I only wish I were anywhere near ready to make that kind of investment. I promised Mike that I’d come down and visit. I’ll see what happens next year. I know Tom had a great time listening to all his toys.
