My Naim journey began at the age of fifteen  nearly forty years ago when the Hifi bug bit. Then as schoolboy it was a "BUSH" separates system with Wharfdale Dovedales,  and 'Beatles' & 'Stones' vinyl as de-rigeur. Never reaching the giddy heights of some salaries & with a blossoming young family I was introduced to NAIM by a work  colleague (bachelor) who had an amazing NAIM setup feeding a pair of (small bungalow) speakers. A setup I could only dream about purchasing. Then over the years gradual changes piece by piece including an enforced CD player when my Thorens Player bit the dust, ending up with a 'CYRUS'. 'ARCAM' arrangement fed by 'MERIDIAN' 200 front end.

Common sense eventually arrived in 2006 when a thoughtful burglar removed my kit & the insurance provider re-introduced me to NAIM. From basic NAIT 5si to a full XS system, now including network player & 'Michell' Gyrodek / SME 3009 (my pride & joy). Now out of work & on a modest company pension upgrades are more difficult although I have managed an ex-demo 202, & am awaiting a NAP 200, currently on order. Apart from possible Power supply options I believe this will be the end of my hardware upgrades, and any future funds being devoted to software. My wife has been fully supportive over these years, but now I accept there is a life outside my listening room, and variety hopefully will be the spice in my life.

Munich High End 2017

Munich in the spring is always a pleasant place to be, albeit not so much so in the upper reaches of the MOC exhibition centre that houses the High End show. There the temperature can reach tropical levels with humidity to match, but this didn't stop our intrepid reporter from fighting his way through the madding crowd to see…See More
