… and another question. This one looks like it’s made with the same material as my nait 5si, but I’ve seen pictures on the internet where the same material as the xs3 is used. Are there different versions?
We recently purchased a mint 2011 nDAC from a trusted dealer. They said it didn’t need a service as it was operating flawlessly and quoted naim timelines as in post above.
However we chose to have it serviced both for peace of mind and because we’ll now get (hopefully) many years of uninterrupted listening from it. A Band 7 service is not cheap now though, nearly as much as the unit itself!
naim confirmed at service that unit was in perfect condition but did replace power supply capacitors.
1000 euro is 850 GBP which is a fair price for a mint unit.
