Will Nait XS or Superuniti properly drive Dali Epicon 2 ?
I will upgrade sooner or later and I want to know what to concentrate on.
I am using Nait XS with Unitiqute and Dali Opticon 2 speakers now. Love Dali sound with Naim. I listen to rock, hard rock, electronic, no audiophile recordings. Almost never loud. I play Flac files from usb stick and listen to 320kb iRadio - only 2 sources I use. I don’t use streaming option.
I want to replace Unitiqute with ND5XS and Dali Opticon 2 with Rubicon 2 or Epicon 2 (maybe get Superuniti for them) . Second hand only. I know XS will drive Rubicons but I am afraid that Epicons need much more expensive electronics - am I right? Anyway, I have a few options
1. Dali Rubicon 2 with XS + ND5XS.
2. Dali Epicon 2 with XS + ND5XS (or Superuniti).
I also owned old Dali Grand Coupe, which were fantastic, but not for rock music or poor recordings (not very dynamic with really dark sound signature). Hence my question about Epicons. Maybe cheaper Rubicons will suit my music taste better. At the moment I cannot compare them but maybe will have a chance in July. But I would really appreciate Your advice, taking into account the music I listen.
