I have had a Uniti Star for 2 years now and have thoroughly enjoyed it, but feel now might be as good a time as any to upgrade. However I have to say that I get very confused / lost within the Naim website. A “Compare” section would be very helpful …
The ability to use Roon & Qobuz (or Tidal) is essential, as perhaps 80% of my listening is via those services. Finances are inevitably constrained, so that probably means focusing on a Supernait 3 (£3.8k), an XS3 (£2.5k) or a 5SI (£1.4k); not hugely sure what the key differences are, or whether I would “need” / benefit from a getting a separate power supply - and if so, what and why? I often read others here talking about flat caps and dr’s, but have no idea what they are!
For a streamer, the ND5 XS2 (£2.5k) appeals more than the NDX 2 (£5.5k) on price, but again, other than the screen I am not really sure what the differences are. FWIW I very rarely use the remote or the screen on the Uniti Star.
Having ripped all of my CDs to FLAC with the Uniti Star I don’t think I really need a CD player, but accept that this might be a bit short sighted. (CD5si (£1.4k)).
I currently have a Rega P6 c/w Ania MC cartridge and a Rega Fono MC, but could be tempted to upgrade them. I also have a pair of KEF R5 floor speakers (c/w NACA5 cables) which I could change but even though some Focals sounded better 2 years ago, the KEFs do at least pass the aesthetics police.
My room is ~ 5m x 7m.
Any thoughts? TIA
