RE: Speakers for Unitilite

Hi ambrose

yes went very well down at signals, very helpful and a great guy. 

Only listened to 2 sets in the end the rega rs3 and the PMC 23's. they did have the rs5. But they were a little to deep for where I am going to put them.

Both sounded great I must say. I've decided to go for the rs3's as I couldn't really justify the extra £1300 for the PMC's. after chatting to the guy on streaming I might put the extra money I would have spent on the pmc towards the unitiserve. He talked about backing this up as well so just wondering if anyone out there could recommend a back up source if I decide to purchase the unitiserve??

What are your thoughts on my choice on the rs3 ????

one other thing the guy gave me a demo on high def music he had played through the unitilite. WOW is all I can say unbelievable quality.

You answered your own question? You demoed! You liked!

The RS3 are lovely musical speakers!

Buy them in Piano Gloss

RE: Speakers for Unitilite

Hi there,

Glad you got on ok. A bit strange when you are used to high street shops but actually you get a much better service there and they do try to find a solution that suits / works rather than what you will buy.

I haven't heard the RS3 but have the rs1 and they were very talented speakers. I got to hear some hires (presumed) stuff which surprised my how much bottom end they could produce with great source.

Sure the rs3 are a great partner for the unitilite.

I might have gone down unitilite route if I had the choice when I was looking or possibly all rega. But happy with what I have all the same. maybe look at neat petite in the future if i have the cash.

The PMC are probably more talented than Unitilite can fully flatter. Not necessary a bad thing ( i had spendor s5e with a nait 3 a few years back) but perhaps extra cash is better served elsewhere???

Did you see what was in the main listening room? I can't help but look, like being in  a candy shop Smile They had the Kudos Titan last time and was lucky to have a listen whilst I waited!! Just amazing life like and  spellbinding.

Cheers for update and enjoy

Ambrose

I also had a listen of the titans, wow what a set up. Some serous £££££ there. 13k just on the speakers.

RE: Speakers for Unitilite

Hi all

just to let you know connected the unitilite up this afternoon along with the rega rs3's in the living room. Had a few hours listening and I am very impressed with sound and performance. I've not received the unitiserve yet, this should be here next weekend (ripping cd's over Xmas looks like).

managed to get it all working via the iPad/iPhone though. I didn't realise how many Internet radio stations there are. 

Looking forward to playing stacks of music over the coming weeks.

Hi 

We'll a week in with the unitilite and the CD player has decided to pack up. Very disappointed considering how much this thing costs. I think I read on one post someone has had the same problem. I also picked up the unitiserve today and was speaking with the guy and he mentioned naim rushed a lot of these through production. No problems on changing for another, just thought I would mention it as some of you may have the same issues. 

Cheers.

That was mine and it packed up on the 2nd CD. Tried it a few times and played it eventually. Third CD fine but 4th, 5th and 6th wouldm't play at all. Day 2 and none of the CDs would work. Day 3 and they all played fine, even a CD-r. Yesterday it skipped on certain tracks and today it is playing fine. The next day for returns in 3rd January, so I can drop it back to the shop on the 2nd. 

When it does work, it is awesome. However, at  £1,485, it is an expensive clock when it doesn't!

Assume this is a sw problem. The sw today can be very complex, and without proper testing can be caotic.

Sorry to hear it. I've been told that similar problems exist with some - perhaps all - of the ULs that were sold in Singapore. Maybe Naim's renowned quality control is slipping? I certainly think it isn't as good as it used to be.

Agreed, at £1400 I expected better, but replacement will be on its way. CD does work just odd occasion coming up disc error. Sounds bloody good though. Loving the Rega RS'3s.
