I can’t give any input on the NDAC side I’m afraid, but I can say I use an ND555 into 52/SCap/135s into B&W804S.I find it a superb combination, really musical and involving. I did do a home demo between ND555 and NDX2/555PSDR and there was a significant difference, so the olives were not a bottleneck.
But - remember me…
What about the Phonosophie TT?
Will it be beaten by the ND555 - this would be a bit bad, as I have bought so much vinyl
BY the way - I should post a picture of the original advertisement of P3 I bought on eBay
I recently added a subwoofer to complement my SBLs. I was worried about losing a sound that I love, but you and I have compared notes in the past about the often light bass of the SBLs and this really works well with the subs crossover and gain turned down to almost the minimum position. I have not lost, but gained details and soundstage and retain the detailed, clear and dynamic sound the SBLs give. I’d try that before changing speakers altogether.
Thanks a lot
Tried it in the past - have a Linn Sizmik here (for surround) and also a chord cable especially made for connecting the sub. Never gained a good result in the past.
Bass came a bit back when recapped and adding XPS to CDX… and XPS to NDAC
Drago, I used to own cds2/01/52/135s - all Olive
I then got rid of cds2/01 and replaced to single source ndx2/555psdr. This source was great with the Olive amps.
Over past year I upgraded in the following order:
52 to 552dr
135s to 500 dr
Ndx2/555psdr to nd555. This last was most impressive of the conversion to 500 series
So yes, the nd555 would be great with the Olive 52/135s
Source first is truth
Go for it
