  1. Looking for an affordable SW in a 2ch music system, currently using Castle stand mount speakers. Looking for good music integration rather than effects. castle compact has hi-level inputs but little info online.

  5. Thanks for your prompt reply and comments. I’ll investigate the replacement POT idea, once I’ve defined How much it Really bothers me. 😊 Also I’ might give the jumper a go before spending any money. I had wondered if you were just putting a block of resistance in one place that enables the POT to not need add as much resistance at its end. I’ll check the schematics, I can certainly see a problem if the input voltages are dropped but if the Added jumper resistance is “close” to the POT Electrically. Hope my non-expert comments make sense
  6. That was my thinking, initially, then I discovered my preamp POT has some channel imbalance at low listening volume (I have sleeping toddlers). The channel imbalance goes away after 8pm on the dial. Looking online some have suggested that using 80% of the resistance on offer from the POT by using it at the low end of the dial may not be good for the sound- Better in the mid to high region. I’m not using MC/MM source but a streamer (analog in) and is never played past 10am on the dial.
  7. I have an option with my Pre-amp (jumpers inside) to reduce the input level and hence have the volume POT operating say between 12 and 2 o’clock instead of 8-10am position. Considering that at max the POT should not be impacting the signal much at all has anyone found that organising listening levels at the mid or upper range of the Volume POT better for Sound quality at comparable volumes??
  8. Good comment. Perhaps it should be Aprat... apparentPRaT
  9. Thanks Irek, That’s the direction I was thinking, the same track I mentioned the bass line was much more engaging and easier to follow.
  10. I wonder if they are just “fast” amps. Leading to a better perceived timing since the time to amplify say the first sound of a drum being hit is faster and the timing cue would be taken from when the drum is first hit not later during the loudest part of the drum beat??
  11. I did an a/b betweeen a Mark Levinsen No.27 and a NAP250 from around the same era. Played “invisible man” by Queen. Drum roll at the beginning sounded definitely “faster” and more realistic, the ML sluggish by comparison. Speakers are jamo c807 which are pretty laid back (sadly). But the Naim particularly has “lifted” them. I had a friend there he agreed and said, “I wouldn’t have believed it unless Id heard it”. I’ve had the ML for several months and within days of getting the Naim I noticed my wife uncharacteristically singing along, even to Bohemian Rhapsody.
  12. Hi Anyone used a Naim pre-Amp with a non-Naim power amp? Main Question: Is the Naim character still evident? Here's some bold statements I love the Pace, Rhythm, and Timing that you get with early Naim gear, but would love more soundstage and detail that seems to be offered by other brands. I was thinking my NAC62 coupled with a NordOne Power Amp, which I am told reflects rather closely what the pre-amp supplies (good or bad). Any thoughts??

  14. Item:NAC32.5 Price Range:Neg Item Condition: Used even Not working or damaged Extra Info:I can organise shipping. I am not a dealer but need a Pre-amp and PSU to go with my newly bought NAP250 CB. Exciting stuff! Please don't forget to report your post as FOUND when possible. (You can now delete this text).
