Ah right – I was reading the review on the site, and couldn't see the reference. Wasn't aware it had been added to the print version, but then I have been away for a couple of weeks Cool

Personally, I'd be thinking Neat Motive range or PMC DB1i or GB1i as good matches for the UL, along with the Tannoys mentioned in the review.

Lame excuse, Mr. Everard.  Wink

I would certainly say PMC, although Neats not had personal experience. Then again, is it wise to go against popular consent?

RE: Speakers for Unitilite

I use our UnitiLite with both the PMC 21's and 23's which both sound fantastic but also the Rega RS3's and RS5's sound brilliant.

Both PMC and Rega are great choices but they both offer very different presentations so I would definately hunt out your nearest dealer for a demo.

Paul you have had a few weeks to listen to the unitilite...how does it stack up against a Rega Brio r/Apollor r/DAC purely on SQ -

RE: Speakers for Unitilite

I have contacted 2 dealers for a demo on the Rega RS3, but they have not come back to me. Same problem with the PMC's. I am based in Essex. Does nobody want my ££££ I thought they would be keen for the business.

Question on the PMC'S , would I get the best from the 21/ 23 with the unitilite??

cheers

RE: Speakers for Unitilite

did you actually speak to the dealers? or was it by email? sometimes email isnt the best form of contact!

I spoke to DougBrady about demoing a unitilite, they were bending over backwards to book a demo!

Nope, lost me completely. But back on topic, have reviewed the UL for a future issue of Gramophone, and had good results with both the Neat Iotas and the GB1s. It even drove the OB1s and Wharfedale Dentons rather well...

FWIW I think the UL is an enormous bargain when compared to the NU2: if I was in the market for an all-in-one streaming system right now, I know which one I'd buy.

Hi,

 

I used to have an original Uniti with some Neat Petite speakers. It was a great combo, when I was fortunate to be able to afford upgrades I stuck with Naim/Neat. Try to demo as much as you can because it all comes down to what you like best. Good luck, let us know how you get on.

I am from Essex and if you can venture into Suffolk (like I did) you could try signals who stock naim, rega, pmc and neat!

I found them very knowledgeable and honest and good with home demos.
