NDX2 screen

My new NDX2 was delivered yesterday. It’s a fantastic unit and a significant upgrade from the NDX. However, I was surprised at the quality of the screen: it’s not very bright and it appears that it has been fitted too firmly - there seems to be quite a bit of ‘blooming’…is this normal?!


Did you take off the screen protector?

Yes I did.

No ideas after the clear film removal? I would call the dealer if you do not think it is right. I am fortunate that mine is just a few miles down the road and hope you resolve the issue without to much hassle.

Thanks, yeah the dealer said they’ll get Naim to replace it. Not what you expect from a £5k product though , one wonders how this managed to get past QC . I’ve waited months for it too, bit frustrating. On the plus side it sounds great , a big improvement on the NDX

After waiting months I would be miffed too like all things this should have been picked up at QC speak to your dealer ask for a replacement but hang onto the faulty unit until the new one arrives.

Yes, that’s what I’ll be doing. The dealer has been really good about it . And this wasn’t meant to be a Naim bashing post , the ndx2 has surpassed my expectations in terms of SQ, it’s a truly brilliant streamer. I would actually prefer it if there wasn’t a screen but it’s not cheap and should be perfect.

My ride with the NDX 2 was also a little turbulent, my unit broke in less than an year, out of the box the front metal plate was not pristine even I accepted the small defect.

Contacted Naim in march and no reply at least until today. Only a confirmation that the email was received.

The unit was sent to the dealer and is now going for a repair that could take months.

I love the NDX 2, but I Am kind of disappointed with quality control, silence of Naim support, and an out of the box not prestige unit on a sealed box.

But sometimes quality control fails for sure, I do not think things like this are so common.
