Who. Why.

What the hell?

New house or something? Naim dealer makes money after all. Not in my ballpark.

I was getting at the one woman, one stereo thing. But then again, it's possibly just the one stereo. Full stop.

 

You never know, his circumstances may have changed and it was her or the stereo.

 

This is of course baseless speculation for those of us who have a bit much time on our hands.

This is so far outside my sphere of comprehension that I will not make any comment.

Sing it out loud, everybody:

 

C-H-O-I-C-E

Find out what it means to me!

 

Obviously, if you have tons of money to spend on hifi gear then all power to you... at some point on the wealth scale $100K or more must be a small enough portion of your income for it not to be insane!

Demonstrates brand commitment/loyalty, but.... damn it's ugly ;)

Too many boxes for me, but if he's happy, all is good!

I would have thought the P7 would be way out of it's league in that system. :confused:

I'm more interested in philosophical approach than in the $$$.

 

Committing entirely to one brand offers synergy, where the manuf has done much of the matching legwork & an easy solution.

 

However, there is the school of thought that there's potential advantage in not repeating the same style (biases/flavour/distortions) of component twice in one system.

 

Yes the P7 doesn't seem to have the presence to take charge of such a behemoth of a system ;)

Intrigued that "active" speakers need 3 ordinary amps too

I assume "active" only means not using crossovers, rather than really self powered

 

You sure need a lot of boxes to build a top end Naim system, would be interesting to hear it

My view of it is that Active means amps directly connected to spkr drivers - which means that the xover/filtering ends up in front of the amps. It's a trade-off, going one way or the other.

There are a couple of pieces from different series in that system.

 

No wonder he's selling !

I think this system is a complete success for Naim. They modularise their offerings, and create a cult like community, and the many modules means you can keep drip feeding your habit... ultimately spending very large amounts of money.

 

Perhaps he has realised what has happened and is going to "KISS" it goodbye (if you get what I mean)

I wonder what he is going to replace it with. Home theatre perhaps? You can buy a 5 speakers system with a subwoofer, 500 watts etc. etc. for less than $500.

Gotcha

 

I was thinking of something like Quad 11L or 12L active speakers which include builtin amps for each driver. Ditto the active ATCs.

Carry over from the old Linn/Naim days of humming to the tune ?

Never liked Naim or Linn's approach of a thousand different add-on upgrades to each component - it's like the Readers Digest of Hi-Fi...
