    Re: New! SUPERNAIT 3

    Thanks Joe! I was in the "lets keep the box count low" camp for many years with Naim and enjoyed their integrated amps. Then one day I decided to try their separates, just to see how "the other half" lives. Progressed from 252/SuperCap and the 250DR power amp, quickly to the 300DR power amp, and now the preamp will be their best (save the Statement), the 552. 552/300 should be nice! The good thing about Naim is that there IS a market for used equipment.

    Not familiar with Naim but is that banana connections for the speakers only?

    Yes, but it’s not as bad as you think. The only thing I hate is the speaker inputs cross the wires behind the amp. It just makes cable management a little tougher.

    The black anodized cases work perfectly for me. Horses for courses as the Brits say!

    Banana connections for speakers, and DIN for the rest. You get used to it

    I keep my stack off to the side -- not between the speakers -- so the placement of the speaker connections at the back of the amp is irrelevant. I just prefer this arrangement to the 'stuff between the speakers look' that is pretty prevalent. The Brits all seem to be of the view that its best to avoid the stack between the speakers.

    I stick with Naim cables and interconnects, so it's easy. But there are plenty of DIN interconnects from other brands.
