I know, it must be quite galling to find that what you just bought as 'state of the art' is suddenly not, but can be improved beyond measure by spending more. Upgraditis is a terrible thing.

I see they have already changed the website for my 552.....

Wow, the Naim haters are really out in force......................
Quite the opposite. I have an xs/hicap dr and lots of other bits that have come and gone.
Just having a smile
I think the Naim S T A T E M E N T should be tested by Photonicinduction on his channel.
He might pop it though.
Wonderful perfect quadraphonic sound with distortion levels so low as to make a brave man weep.

They're not finished yet - they'll be milking this one, despite having not heard it...

Diminishing returns anyone? Just how much better is this than all those bog standard $100k amps?
I love Naim. But it is now standard procedure on the internet whenever a product is announced to decry the company for not making [INSERT PRODUCT THEY DO NOT MAKE THAT ONLY I WANT HERE]. This is a bit of a boring announcement for me tbh, since it's not something I'm ever going to buy, or even likely hear. And apparently you can get £700 speakers that are better.
They do seem quite good value compared to some of this stuff though...
Anyway, calm down. We aren't taking the #### out of your system are we?
I have a lot of appreciation for Naim (had an all Naim system for two years) and still haven't ruled out all future Naim purchases (almost bought a NaimUnitiQute last year).
But they do rather talk a lot of semi mystical 'carp' when it comes to a lot of things and they leave themselves wide open to be prodded and poked. It's part of being Naim I suppose. (Cable shakers, PRaT, wobbly mains connectors, people 'listening' to different kinds of paint etc.)
Anyway, despite the fun, neither you nor I (or anyone here i'll wager) can afford the bl###y thing so it's all a moot point.

Interestingly, you'll notice there are no 'claims' at all in the press release, least of all about how it might sound.
