    Does it sound as good as it looks ?

    Are those Naim interconnects required with their electronics ?

    What brand rack is that?

    It sounds better than it looks! Yes, the NAIM cables are included/required. Rack is the NAIMFRAME.

    Re: Full NAIM system

    Looking good.

    Most Naim people will tell you to put the 552 on the second shelf, assuming the interconnects reach.

    Re: Full NAIM system

    I think Naim was being very insensitive with the appearance of this system. This looks like a rack of servers in a computer room/datacenter. All that's missing is some yellow/red lights. What I/T person wants to come home from work and stare at the same crap they have been looking at for the last 12 hours? Im sure its beautiful to everybody else thou
