Chord Co moves the goal posts

At the Bristol show earlier this year I got an idea of what Nigel Finn at the Chord Company had been up to with the new Sarum Super ARAY cables, it was enough to lure me to Amesbury to hear more precisely what he has been up to. Sarum Super ARAY replaces Sarum Tuned ARAY at the top of Chord’s current cable range, it is an…See More

"One of each, then when no one buys the orange one you've got a decent pair of speakers at home that also look swank"

Making a (Naim) Statement

Last month I went over to Salisbury for the launch of the NAC-N 272, Naim’s latest preamplifier/streamer. While at the factory Naim showed myself and some other journalists the production area for the Statement NAC S1 preamplifier and NAP S1 power amplifiers, Naim’s most ambitious electronics to date.This is a jig for holding…See More

"Thanks Jason, it certainly looks like  everyone's been busy..except the hot dog vendors. I spotted this wonderful comment on the Naim forum about how a room should be run at a hi fi show:- "At my first Bristol show sometime in the…"

Dave Burke commented on Jason's blog post The Statement effect
"I am so jealous... I've only heard the Statement at Bristol and it sounded pretty fine there, but to hear under more flexible circumstances with my own musical choices would be a real treat. Hopefully some day soon... Dave."

"Jason, lucky you! Great to see your write up and to hear from someone who has had a real "hands-on" opportunity with the Statement. Many thanks. Scott."

The Statement effect

I have heard the Naim Statement at two shows now but the opportunity came up to listen to it in a more relaxed environment so naturally I jumped at the chance. The fact that I could play some of my own music was the icing on the audio cake. Statement was sitting between an NDS with twin power supplies and an imposing pair of…See More

Giant slayers from Southend

If either of the new Rega turntables cost 10x what they do the hi-fi world would be thronging with their praises. As it is the entry level nature of Rega’s best known turntables and the relative affordability of the RP8 and RP10 mean that they have not been taken as seriously as they deserve.Both are built on a skeletal foam cored chassis that is lighter and stiffer than any turntable has ever been. This is virtually ultimate realisation of Roy Gandy’s theories about turntable design and…See More

Bristol Sound & Vision 2017

Posted on February 28, 2017 at 11:30 0 Comments

For the 2017 Sound and Vision show Bristol City Council put on its own show of road works and Hurricane Doris had managed to block off the usual access road to the Marriott Hotel, so it was a wonder anyone managed to set up at all. But it takes more than that to stop the dedicated and the halls…

Focal at High End 2015

Posted on May 20, 2015 at 11:41 2 Comments

There was quite a large price and performance gap between Focal’s Electra Be and Utopia ranges, but not anymore, at the Munich High End show they unveiled Sopra, Italian for ‘above’. Sopra consists of a bookshelf No.1 and the No.2 floorstanding models, both built around the same core design. The cone drivers…

Naim at High End 2015

Posted on May 19, 2015 at 11:30 0 Comments

Naim’s display at the High End show in Munich focussed on its NAP power amplifiers, most of which have benefitted from Statement tech trickledown. This comes in the form of the NA009 transistor developed for the range topping S1 mono power amps, which is quite a serious slice of silicon. Naim’s engineers took a…
