Statement - A Club Member Takes a Listen

Last Friday, I had the pleasure of being one of the first people in the UK to experience the Statement at the Bristol Show. Following a few introductory words from Doug and Steve from Naim we were treated to around 20 minutes of aural delights from the new amplifiers driving a pair of Focal Grand Utopia EMs. I have to admit that the Focals are not to my personal taste, however they are hugely capable speakers that revealed the Statements' full capabilities. Wow!! It's hard to describe what… Continue

Rega

Rega’s Phil Freeman told me that they were trying to stop visitors from taking the system too seriously this year. His reasoning being that trying to appreciate its finer points in a hotel room with high ambient noise is akin to test driving a Ferrari in a car park.

Saturnalia

I have been listening to Rega’s Saturn-R CD player/DAC for the purpose of a review in a certain audio journal and the experience has been so thrilling that I thought I’d share my impressions. To be honest I don’t know how they do it, how can you make a CD player that’s so engaging and exciting at such a reasonable price (£1,598).

First impressions: ND5 XS 2, NDX 2, ND 555

Naim has given its Classic series streamers a radical shake up, bringing them up to speed with the all the features that have been developed in the ten years since the original NDS was launched. Three new models will be coming in the summer and I have had the opportunity to get a good idea of what engineers Roy George and…See More
