This is my first post – no doubt there is some discussion of this on your site. But there are 100’s of posts and I’ve had trouble locating one string that answers my questions.
I apologize if these issues have already been addressed and if so would appreciate it if you would direct me to the location on your site…
I just bought an XS-2 integrated. My speakers are Harbeth P3ESR monitors. I’ve had the Naim a couple of days – have left it on 24x7.
I’m very much disappointed with the sound.
It lacks bass, is “squeezed” --the opposite of airy and engaging, has little soundstage, is hard/harsh in the treble. It’s better at higher than lower volumes but I tend to listen at low volume.
Does this sound like a problem with “burn in?” If so, might you have any tips about the best way to accelerate the time it takes before it will perform as expected. Is it better to play certain sorts of music/sources/volumes and etc.?
I can return the unit to the store I bought it at for. refund within the next few weeks. What would you recommend?
I’d appreciate any feedback you can offer me,
