    Sure is.

    As someone who has owned NAIM and likes a lot of what they do, their prices though have gone into Crazy-Town the last couple of years. Enough to keep me from buying them and spending elsewhere.

    We were told about this change coming years ago. No more goofy naim only connections. Proper XLR and rca now. This is the Focal influence and making NAIM more universally attractive.

    No worries. Thank you for sharing. Couldn’t resist asking. Can’t wait to hear more about it and whether there is a Superline evolution/replacement in the works.

    Re: Sexy! !

    Not sexy to my eyes. More like a Christmas cracker - wide at each end and pinched in at the middle! And far too costly too. Still no AES/ EBU input and, by comparison with its competition a very small LED screen. Although Naim still offers power amps for this device to feed, power amps seem to be a dying breed with far more exceptionally good integrateds or integrateds with DACs becoming available.
    Sources - NAD M50.2 (streamer, CD player, CD ripper, hard drive music store)
    Amplification - NAD M33 all-in-one, NAD M12 preamp
    Speakers - Avantgarde Duo XD, Avantgarde Duo (2006) - both aesthetically modified
