Looking for some advice on the next step.
Fallen out of love with my uniti Star since a house move (new build) and change of listening room. I now predominantly listen at low volumes and feel it is lacking (narrow soundstage and low powered bass) and am not sure if it’s a function of speakers/star or simply down to the room. The system certainly sounds much better when cranked up, but, alas not possible most of the time.
Room is approximately 3m x 4m.
Up to £3k to spend before any trade ins, and prepared to spend a bit of time and money over the next few years adding or tweaking.
Couple of assumptions on future system, mainly Naim based and vast majority of listening will be digital/streaming.
Current system - Uniti star with B&W CM9 s2, 3m Nac a5, currently using chord odyssey 2.
Several options present themselves either immediately or in due course.
1- replace speakers to something more suitable for the room. Suggestions welcome.
2- buy used 250 dr and pre amp from the star until it can be traded in against ‘new 272’ if and when……
3- as above but spend a couple of years saving for suitable pre amp and ND5 XS2 or NDX 2
4- Supernait 3 and NDX 2
6- Room treatment of some description.
If it helps with any suggestions I also have in the loft
Luxman m-100 amp recently re-capped
Nakamichi CA5e ii pre amp
Cambridge Azur 740 CD player with option to use the onboard DAC for 2 digital inputs.
All suggestions appreciated and welcome.
