I’ve searched quite a few threads and there seems to be more discussion on the 600 and 800 Ovators.
I’ve come across a pair of S400 for a good price and considering upgrading my Kef 104.2 Raymond Cooke editions. I’ve used these speakers with various naim amps from a Nait 3, SN, 250, etc, to my current SuperUniti and I’ve been pleased with them.
My listening room is medium size and the speakers are positioned around a fire place and the rear wall has an L shape to it. The left speaker has plenty of space behind and on the sides but the right speaker will need to be about 8 inches, less if possible, from the wall (rear) with plenty of clearance on the sides.
The Kef’s sound great, soundstage, depth, presentation, are all good. But they’re quite old now and I’d like to find a replacement.
The S-400 doesn’t seem to get much love here but I’d like to hear some impressions b/c I’ve never owned a Naim speaker and not sure what to expect. From my reading it sounds like the 400 is more forgiving of room dynamics than it’s bigger siblings but I’m not certain. Thanks in advance.
