I currently own a Marantz MCR-603 with Monitor Audio RX1 speakers. Out of curiousity, I asked my local dealer for a home demo of the Naim UnitiLite. Firstly, I must say that in terms of the user experience the Lite is really great, especially the streaming function. The MCR603 feels very cumbersome now in comparison. One thing that surprised me about the Lite is how controlled the bass is almost to the point of some upbeat music such as commercial pop sounding a little flat. I would probably increase the bass for certain genres of music if the UnitiLite had tone control (which it doesn't). Is this down to the RX1s or is it typical of the Naim sound? Also, does the UnitiQute have a similar sound? I must say that the Naim sounds great with slower and acoustic tracks.
