Looking on the Naim forum it seems to be 5 years in the UK if you register.
Well it's a good job you checked otherwise I might not have remembered that I registered my entire Naim system for the 5 year extended warranty.

Mrs. P has just come out with a good idea regards the CDP, but I'll let you know if or when it goes back to Naim.
It doesn't matter to me whether it's contingent on your CD5i going back to Naim (or not), the forum is always in need of reading about a good idea whomever it comes from.
Spill the beans.
She won't mind.
If I recall correctly, she had the idea to get an all-in-one once. That was an excellent idea!
Marantz M-CR603 + AirPlay • Rega R3 loudspeakers • iPhone 5 • iMac • Apple Airport Extreme 802.11n • Apple iPad Mini • Panasonic TX-L32D25B • Sony BDP-S390 • Ruark Audio R1 Deluxe • Humax HDR-Fox T2
FWIW. My dealer says the new Rega amp is a giant killer.
Did he say which giants were notched on the casework?
Thats is a rather liberal view of it.
After 6 months you have to prove it is faulty and you can claim upto 6 years from purchase, that does not mean everything will be expected to laste 6 years.
And its the retailer not the manufacturer you have to claim off.
However, the Elicit was connected to PMC 23s and it sounded pretty darn good.
once over that £1k mark amps start to sound very good - apparentyl! Bet theres not a lot in it tbh PP, when i demoed the Nait XS2 I couldnt tell them apart, the Elicit R won on matching my other gear & phono stage
Also, TBF to me and the brief dem this afternoon, I've not heard the Leema with such high calibre speakers, so my view really holds no real substance. It's just comment based my initial impression.
I've always held the belief that once you cross the £1000 threshold amps do usually jump up another notch or two.
What would say or guess, Steve, you wouldn't be disappointed if you had the Leema - and it would've saved a fair few quid to boot.

I'm not being surreptitious, just undecided about CDPs. All I will say at this stage is my CDP over the past year has been played less and less. Once I've got a firm idea settled I'll spill the orange pulses.
Really so the £1,000 ones are so much better than £999 ones, amazing what £1 can do.
You have spat feathers over the idea of 'digiboxes' so many times in the past that I can only assume the 'idea' is to sell the CD player and invest in a better turntable and more LPs.
I really can't see you going for any DAC / streamer / network solution.
Another guess at the 'big idea' is a good quality multi-format player like an Oppo or CA 651BD or somesuch. (But that, again, is too digital for you.)
No, none of those.
Okay, once I get the Naim back sell it and just buy a darn good TT. The CDs can be played thru the DVD-R - not as good quality as a dedicated CDP but isn't miles away either. But I am feeling lower than a snakes at the mo (only got Leema back a few weeks ago and mow the CDP), hence why I was reluctant to make snap judgement.
I reckon I would be mighty impressed with the Leema PP - you cant buy them amy more can you?

I think a CD player not reading tracks and skipping would not be too difficult to prove as a fault, also the CD player cost around a grand and should be fairly expected to last much longer than a much lower priced offering, as it would be deemed to be a premium product.
I got my washing machine repaired for nothing and it was well beyond its '1 year standard guarantee' and it was cheap tat. I simply argued that it was not of sufficient quality, which for anyone with any basic engineering knowledge could see for themselves.
The question is only wether or not a dodgy pickup is deemed fair wear and tear, and after spending the best part of a thousand pounds on a CD player, I'd be arguing not.

Well it was one of them...

Only s/hand sadly. But at around £600 for a £1300 amp is nothing less than a no brainer. Look at the spec sheet the Leema is a match for the Elicit, plus a switchable phono stage. Not sure about the SQ between the two, can't imagine, however, there's a huge difference.
Hands up on that one - a little deflated at the moment. Once Tuesday comes they'll give me the full gen and then I can start thinking seriously and see if the TT option is viable for my needs.
