Hello all, new here (and new to the Naim world in general)!
I have admired Naim from afar for years, but I finally acquired a modest group with a CB 32.5/250/SNAPS, plus a 110 that I might eventually utilize for a second setup. LPs make up most of my listening, but I do occasionally play a CD. What’s a relatively affordable, reliable, and maintainable CD deck that matches well with the older gear? Thanks!
A Naim Cdi would be a great match for the ‘period’ of equipment that you have, but it may be difficult to track one down with the transport mech intact. A chat with some established Naim dealers may yield something.
The equipment that you have bought may benefit from a trip back to Salisbury for service/re-cap, unless this has been done recently.
Get a Naim CD3. It’s great fun snd perfect for a CB system. The CDM9/44 is one of the best and most reliable mechs ever made and easily replaced if need be. Best of all, CD3s are plentiful and comparatively cheap for a Naim CD player.
And, here’s the classics all lined out. Silly question perhaps: can one run a 250 and 110 at the same time from the SNAPS, no crossover involved? I have two sets of speakers in different rooms, would like to use both from the same source. I see the bi-amp configuration noted on the SNAPS, but I want to make sure that means what I think it means, not for an active setup.
