This is a touch rude
It was not intended to be rude.
I was pointing out in what I hoped was an amusing way that a person would struggle to lift the amp.
Fair enough. Well, if you were being genuine I often do wonder how people get these super integrated amps into place. I struggled with my meagre 21kg Hegel.
As is calling it an air conditioning unit. It’s important that we embrace diversity. Most of the big integrated amps are rather brick-like, such as the big Vitus or the Diablo. Not everyone wants Naim Lego.
Ah - jokes are banned now, it seems.
Isnt it great to outsource the moral compass? We all can stop thinking.
61 kg. It’s not 122 lbs?
Strong friends would be less rude ?
Personally I didn’t found Jim post rude.
Will the Audionet fit into the HRS rack ?
I thought it was rude because the fella already said he had health issues which meant he can’t leave the house. That’s all.
I reckon 66kg is a two man lift…I’ve had my eye on a Pass Labs Int-250 for a while and at 47kg will plan some strong friends and strong beer for help.
It has channel separation >140 dB with 1,700VA transient power. It’s basically a S1 + dual 500’s with 700 kHz bandwidth in a single box. In the US it retails a bit under the 552 + 500 combo. Factoring in cost $10.5k savings for 1 shelf vs 4 shelves & $6k SL interconnect then it is a relative bargain.
Nope… I almost went with the Pilium super integrated that weighs 100 kg! It is probably close in sq terms but lacked a pre out and the real issue is how it the world can anybody move such a thing safely? Fortunately I have a nephew who can easily move the Humboldt into place for me but it would take at least two people to move the Pilium.
Yes but I have to get custom length columns of 15 inches. I’ve seen people put it on top shelf which I might do. The design is beautiful so it would be nice to have it more visible.
Katz, how many systems are you ending up with after this move?
Sounds amazing @Katzky2021
Look forward to seeing it setup!
Ultimately just one. Either I’m a die hard Naimophile or the Humboldt will blow my mind re what’s possible on a “reasonable” budget. I’ve been torn because I love Naim so much and couldn’t easily just abandon it. This gives me opportunity to hear both approaches at reference level.
In a previous post I indicated my daughter really loves the Naim and didn’t want me to replace it. She’s mostly talking about the speakers so those are going into storage for her once she has her own place. I’ll also maybe keep the 282 & hicap for her. However she’s only 16 so maybe keeping the 282 doesn’t make sense. The s-400s are just too good to sell for peanuts IMO. But when my daughter said they were “an important part of her childhood” I figured she’d enjoy having them in her future home.
Oh I am too but I’ll have to wait until mid/late January 2022.
Well my nephew does have a $120 gambling debt to me from when he was 12 years old. He’s supposed to work off the debt by doing chores for me. Think this will settle up his account. My niece on the other hand is $250 in debt and I had to send in a specialist last year to kidnap her doll. Unfortunately she’s now 19 and the debt is five years old and she apparently doesn’t care about the safe return of her doll she forgot existed until I sent the pics of the doll suspended above a vat of vegetable oil.
Were these poker debts?
I spent several years researching and playing poker in home games, casinos and online (as a hobby).
One of the few forms of gambling that is (over the long haul) entirely a game of skill (psychology, self-control and a bit of maths).
I notice that one of your two system descriptions now reads:
DCS Rossini + Rossini Clock → Chord Sarum T RCA → 552 → SuperLumina → 300DR → SuperLumina → S-400 + Rel G2
Does this mean you actually have a 552?
Or is it in the post?
Will you compare Rossini - 552/300 - Magico to Rossini - Humboldt - Magico?
