NAC 272 vs NAC 32.5 + ND5

Which will sound better a new ND5XS2 fed into my NAC 32.5 +SNAPS or a new NAC 272. Sources are Tidal and my NAS. Speakers are active ATC SCM 20T or Spendor A6 via NAP 160.

If, when you say “new NAC 272” you mean a possible replacement for the old model, it doesn’t exist, so nobody can tell you. If you’re talking about the old model, my money would be on the ND5XS2/32.5 although powering the 272 with an XPS should close the gap. There’s no substitute for a proper demo, though.

There’s only one way to find out and that’s hear for yourself.
