Happy 5th birthday

I bought my 272 five years ago today, on 31 July 2015, together with its friend, a 250DR. They made themselves at home with my PMC twenty.23s and Quadraspire SVT. Since then it’s been joined by a 555PS, a 300DR, SL2s, a Fraim, SL cables and a MusicWorks mains block. To stop it getting lonely it now has two playmates: a Rega Planar 6 and a Naim NAT05.

It’s given me countless hours of pleasure listening to music over those five years.

So happy birthday to you, 272.

(and before anyone says ‘272 fanboy’ etc., say what you like, I don’t care!)


i like particulary the disclosure … :wink:

272 fanboy! :rofl::crazy_face:


It’s a stereo, not your child, 272 fanboy :sunglasses::joy::joy:.


Happy birthday to it HH, nice. Mine is similar but omits the tt and tuner and did have PMC 23s but now survives on ATC SCM40s, and the 272 dates from May 2018 so is only a toddler by comparison.

Top to bottom:
Hidden: Morganas, Phantoms, 2 x Powerlines.
It’s a tremendous 4 box system.


But does it keep you awake at night Nigel :grinning:

Should be due for a service soon.

Fanboy or Fanboi ? :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

Fanbwa? :grinning:

Or should it be hyphenated; Fan-boy?

The possibilities are endless!

272 - the magic disruptor and the ’ugly duckling’ of the Naim range.

Congrats, HH - will you be going out for a curry to celebrate?

Too warm for curry. I’ve bought a recording of Angela Hewitt playing Messiaen as a little present for it.

Surely not! It’s not exactly cool on the sub-continent. 1.4 billion Indians can’t be wrong :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

Congratulations! May you have many, many more happy years together!


Will it be starting school in September?


It’s home schooled. I wouldn’t want it to catch a nasty virus.


Congrats! It’s always great to find a piece of gear you love that just makes you want to buy more music. I feel the same way about my LP12 that was adopted.

A fish head curry is an excellent choice in hot weather​:yum: Peter Swain @Cymbiosis likes it​:grin::sunglasses:
Happy 5th birthday to your 272🎂!!!
