Steve's History

James asked me to give a potted history of my experience with Naim. Here goes:

1987 Linn LP12 with Basik arm, Creek amp and Linn Index Speakers. The Creek amp lasted all of 6 week because I had heard the Naim Nait in the demo and just had to have it. This was my introduction to Naim.

1988 Upgraded to black Ittok LVII. Audiotech wall shelf and Sound Organisation tables.

1989 Upgraded Nait to NAC62 and NAP140

1993 Naim CDI. Although I was and still am mostly…

Festival of Sound 2012 Photos

I just want to thank everyone who supported the event. We all had the most amazing weekend and I could not be luckier to have a set of clients like you all.

You make this job an absolute pleasure.

I'd also like to thank my good friends at Naim, Doug, Mark, Jason, Steve & Trevor who did the most wonderful job from start to finish and of course my own team Henry, Mary & Debbie

Thanks again

Howard's system

My mainly NAIM system has grown from it's original, by accident entry in to NAIN land of 12s/NAP160.

This 1989 purchase of a new LP12 had blown the budget for new Arcam pre/power combo,. So we had to "make do" with the NAIM and LP12 /basic arm and cart, into AR8 speakers. Incidently these items…

Just a comment to say thanks to everyone for the fantastic demonstration today.  An excellent afternoon. In the words of young Mr Grace "You've all done very well!"

I am looking forward to the 10th birthday party.

Thanks again folks.

Festival of Sound - spaces filling fast!

Hello all, we've had a great response to the Festival of Sound, so much so that the Saturday morning session is now fully booked. We still have places on the other three sessions but don't delay as these are going fast.

We're all really looking forward to the weekend, there's nothing better than hanging out with friends old and new, listening to some splendid music on Naim's finest.

See you there.

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
