Hello everyone! I’ve been a music enthusiast since the 1970s when I used to dream about high-end audio systems (for that time, I don’t remember much except the Nakamichi 1000, but maybe it wasn’t truly high-end). I used to buy magazines to stay updated, and by the late ’70s, I had a Sansui AU 6600 amplifier paired with Goodmans speakers, a Technics turntable, Rotel tuner, and a Sony cassette deck.
In late ‘84, I was gifted a Philips CD player, and I enjoyed this setup until the ‘90s. After various upgrades (Denon, Proton, Lector, Monrio, SonusFaber, Opera), I’m now considering purchasing a new Naim Uniti Star all-in-one system because, for once, I want to treat myself. Hi-fi stores with listening rooms have practically disappeared where I live, so I’ll be buying online, relying on positive reviews.
Additionally, I have a pair of Opera 1.5 speakers that I bought used, but I don’t have their technical specs. I contacted Opera via email asking if they could send me a summary sheet in electronic format, but I didn’t receive a response. So, I’m turning to the forum for advice:
1. Does it make sense to pair the Naim Uniti Star with Opera 1.5 speakers? Do these speakers perform well with the 70+70 Naim amplifier? 2. From a sound perspective, what could be a better match? Focal Aria? I could also consider the SonusFaber Lumina III, which I can purchase locally.
Thanks for any insights
