Yep … I’ve recently done exactly that!
I wonder if in the future, Naim might not bother with screens … just like my ND5XS2
Unfortunately, the green display gave up on my first generation ND5XS (extremely dim and unreadable). Seems like the colour screens have their issues too
With the new ND5XS2, I definitely don’t miss the screen and the Naim App works great for settings etc.
Considering that I’m using it with the original Hugo, there seemed little point going for the NDX2… a screen “version” to use solely as a ‘transport’ wasn’t for me and not much point paying for something I didn’t need (colour screen … at more than double the price!)
The option for adding an external PSU didn’t influence me either.
When I’m ready to upgrade, I’m sure Naim will have released a newer model to add to their range of products… which incorporates their latest ‘know how’
