Guessing the price range: £ 1500 - £ 5000

Loads of second hand expensive kit!

I'll raise you another zero on the highest of your guesses.

Adjusting for an extra power supply, also:

£ (2*1500) - £ (50000+5000)

It's an Abdroid app. 

 

Failing that, a UnitiLite that actually works.

I'm a little underwhelmed by the 'technology' section in the above. I was expecting to read something I wouldn't understand, but basically all they're saying is that the power supplies are big and they've put some bits of plastic (sorry, 'acrylic') between the different parts of the amps.

Oh I dunno - the volume control sounds a bit complicated...

I was impressed by the...  "Nano diamond paste between transistor and heatsink..." until I found it was available from Amazon for a tenner a tube.

Ok but can you imagine how many you'd have to try until you find the one that sounds best?

I've moved on to trying to work out why everything has to be mounted on leaf springs (lot's of projected sales in earthquake zones?) and what difference it makes to the signal if the wires are being passed through holes in an 'acrylic divide' rather than just the air inside the amp?

"The audio electronics are in the rest of each enclosure, with an illuminated 'acrylic divide' minimising electromagnetic radiation between the two sections." (Gramophone.)

Does acrylic minimise electromagnetic radiation?

I simply cannot believe it gave Naim somewhere to stick some more lights in it.
