Help need Naim streaming guru?!!

Recommended Posts

Hi guys

 

After decades of only vinyl use I ended up getting a NAIM NDX2 streamer. 
 

I am an absolute Luddite and have no idea about tech. Just started a Tidal trial and seem to have it hooked up via the Naim app. 
 

It actually sounds bloody marvellous straight from the box. 
 

I would love some help. If anyone is in Melbourne and is adept with streaming and knows or uses Naim can you give me a PM. 
 

🙏🏻

Hi Hugo ,

Mate Naim App is C***......I had a NAP172 and was unable to use Tidal due to Naim App very user unfriendly. Spotify works OK though. Honestly never used Tidal on Naim App It's that bad. I would recommend making playlists on actual tidal App and than They will show up in Naim App. But other than that Naim Streamers do sound good....

It looks like it’s roon ready. I’d start a trial of roon and see how you get on.

ROON through Naim is sublime, used it through the Naim app when I had the Uniti Core which was an awesome device. I didnt have any probs with that app. But as you might be suggesting, a PM and maybe a visit in these scary times...its just hard to know what someone is describing when it comes to computer stuff without sitting there beside them...

 

Yes, great stuff, your records will collect dust once you listen through Tidal Hi Fi/ROON etc. One of the best steps I have taken and it took me a long time too.

If you PM me, I’ll set up a Remote Desktop session for you to set you up over Zoom.

 

Before you do that though, Sign up for a free trial of a Roon and download it.

A big shoutout to @recur  

 

Wow. We have come a long way. To be able to use Zoom and have someone set you up remotely in real time and less than hour is incredible!

 

I’ve been a member of Sna for a decade and I have to say, that this is what it’s all about.  @recur I can’t thank you enough for all your time help and patience. 
 

For so long I have been too scared to go digital and stream as I have no idea what to do.

 

Roon is incredible and this vinyl tragic has now come of age. 
 

That wine is on the way mate 🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻

No problems mate. It’s always good to help a fellow out and get them on the good oil.

 

Also, just as a heads up, I’ve set up-sampling to DSD on all your streaming. Some people like it, some don’t. If it sounds good to your ears, all good.

 

i can always turn it off later.

 

have a great listening weekend

Great outcome. Once you get your head around Roon you will listen to so much more new music than ever before..

 

Make sure you enable Roon Radio.

For the record Tidal via the Naim app is very easy and intuitive to use. I use it every day without any issues.

The ROON DSP engine is also fun for the whole family. :D

Sounds great to me @Bunno77

 

I think it's the Naim more than anything else. I now see why people get hooked on Naim gear. Sounds like good vinyl but MM not MC.

Naim has always impressed me. Good to hear, thanks

It is a decent step up to the 555 too
