I too was a member of the old forum, joining in 2014 after buying my first piece of Naim kit, a MuSo. This was soon followed by a SuperUniti and a UnitiQute2 (driving ProAc D20 & Neat Iota respectively).
Like many others I became afflicted with the upgrade bug! An inheritance enabled me to indulge in my (almost) forever system as per my profile. Unwilling to upset either the harmony of our lounge setup/decor or my darling wife (who prefers Radio 4 to music!), I am forever limited to a max. of 4 black boxes (3 at the moment). Neither will I ever get away with speakers bigger than the K6 (not that I can imagine ever wanting to).
My avatar is one of my own favourite photos, a female sparrow hawk lunching on a kill in my garden. My user name is an amalgam of my name (Tim) and the collar number I had for 31 years as a cop.
Although a Northener by birth, and than spending my entire working life in Essex, I am now living the retirement dream in Cornwall. When able to tear ourselves away from this wonderful county and our new friends, my wife and I love travelling, both long haul and in our motorhome.
I find myself having a love-hate relationship with the forum! I’ve had difficulty throughout my entire life being told what to do! This means I sometimes get a wee bit ticked off with those members who seem to think age and years of Naim ownership gives them the right to pronounce on the pros and cons of equipment and setup as if delivering the 10 commandments! I’m more of a believer in letting people know what works for me, and in turn sharing with their own experiences. For me ‘right’ and ‘wrong’ very rarely enter the HiFi equation.
I can’t imagine ever wanting to own anything other than Naim. I rarely visit my HiFi dealer now, as I don’t want to waste his time, so am unlikely to be exposed to many alternatives. That suits me just fine! Long live music.
