Listening now. Yes those scuff marks are real but inaudible.
worth the wait?
Nothing is worth THAT wait . . . it’s just a record!
It was more about holding Naim accountable for what they promised.
But what about that big dog hair? That disc looks a bit… bargain bin.
NB I did not clean it. I usually clean new LPs with my Auto Desk machine but lately it’s been unnecessary; I’ve bought a spate of new vinyl that arrives pristine. Obviously not this.
No hairs; I think it’s a scuff you see. It’s actually quite scuffed but it plays very well/quiet.
That does look pretty second hand. It does seem a shame it wasn’t handled well, in all senses of the word.
Oh I dont know where that came from – our dog is white but he doesnt shed and I can’t find it now that the record’s been played. EDIT Looks like our dog’s hair.
It does sound lovely and my wife and I are enjoying the music.
For all that’s been said, this turntable with my SuperLine/SuperCapDR makes very lovely music.
Awesome! Love the music from True Stereo!
It was still there and I have banished it from the castle grounds!
OMG - it looks like US Customs played frisbee with it!
It was well-packaged, but just in a black paper sleeve. I’ve dry brushed the small bits off…and am storing in the MoFi sleeves I always use. It plays great.
Haven’t we seen this before - New from Naim – Solstice Special Edition turntable thread
Naim couldn’t provide a proper poly sleeve. How cheap-ass of them. Acoustic Sounds sells them (same as the MoFi ones) in 500 packs for $136.
What a slap in the face to have your LTD edition 16K deck iced with that.
Just clean it up best as and stick it in the box.
Why just stick it in the box? It sounds lovely.
You moaned about the condition I just agreed.
The visuals are moan-worthy…but because it sounds great I’m not compelled to squirrel it away
