Enjoying my Nait Xs 3 thanks to you guys

Thanks to this community, I could solf the speaker hum I had after changing my Denon PMA 2000E for a Nait XS3. Turns out the Marantz streamer needed grounding. Now a verry happy first time Naïm user.
Thanks for having me!

Beautiful set up by the way

Welcome to the board and enjoy your beautiful setup. I previously owned the XS2 and I wish I would have kept it as it performed so damn well. The siren song of upgradeitis caught me.

Thanks. Unfortunately upgradeitis comes with the hobby. Already looking for ways to improve, without breaking the bank😁

Don’t be in a massive rush to make changes and certainly not to do too many back to back. What you have is a very capable and enjoyable system.
A typical path forwards is adding a HiCap DR and a move to a Supernait.
Obvious considerations beyond that may also include a dedicated rack, be that Naim’s Fraim or other similar options, then you have Naim Powerline cords and of course making optimisations to your AC power arrangements in particular having a dedicated supply for your system.
Lots of options and wherever you take your system you’re in a good place to enjoy what you have and improve upon that as time and funds allow.

Marcusman,
:grinning:
Generally ProAcs are easy to drive, I listen relatively low volume too (ave. 55 Dbs) so never strained (= lots of headroom).
Working from home has never been so enjoyable!
Famous last words but no upgradeitis just enjoying the tunes - long may it last.

Yeah I love my ProAc’s as well. Free words of wisdom from Mr.M above. Don’t be in a rush to make changes…

See if a full Powerline is available in your area. The best upgrade on a pound per sound basis i.e it is highly cost effective

Thanks Ian,
That is going to be my next upgrade.
Only mot sure if the amp is the first kit to receive it.
As I understand it is beter to do the source first.

That’s a can of worms in itself.

Hope all goes to plan

An opportunity for some fun experimentation - just buy one and try it on various parts of your system. If you hear a difference, great, keep it there. If not, no harm done!
