Over-nite Sensation is a Zappa album, Dina-Moe Humm is a typically tasteful Zappa song about a relationship from that album, so FZ is telling me he listened to a FZ album this morning.
i understand, somedays you can feel that you have to listen to an artist specially…
For Zappa, i prefer the debut 70’s albums with George Duke and jean luc ponty. More jazz fusion like…
As the great Vulcan philosopher once said: fascinating!
from display issue to naim audio priority to Franz Zappa…what’s next? Fascinating have you said?
Room correction for the Nova
Why not use the Roon DSP. You might like Roon as well.
I do use Roon, thanks…I’d love for the Nova to have a more robust room correction though, perhaps a USB microphone that analyzed speaker placement and frequency distortion
@Simon-in-Suffolk has done that using REW. He is very interested in what Roon can do and may have found a way to produce a room correction filter for Roon from the REW data. I expect he will respond and tell you more.
@Innocent_Bystander has recently posted on his use of REW to get the best speaker position. Clearly DSP correction is best used once the basic speaker/room synergy is worked out.
I love the design of his gear. Beautifully done.
…so do we see some new stuff in may @ highend fair in munich?
Nobody will know for sure, but I don’t expect this … 3 new streamers have been put on the market recently with still some issues to solve in the Uniti Series … hope Naim will sort this out before jumping into something new …
How about DIN5>XLR single and dual Super Lumina I/Cs to go straight from the new streamers to 250, 300 or 500? Isn’t it what the new Volume Mode function of the App is calling for?
I agree with @Spacin007 about room correction. Surprised naim haven’t already done this given their ‘sound first’ philosophy.
It could be that is exactly the reason they haven’t come out with it yet…
A question I ask myself: if so many people wish for so many new products, how is it that a Nait 1 or 2 still sell at ridiculous prices?
Look at what Linn are doing with their new streamer. NAD, a very forward-thinking company, have just introduced the M10 Masters all-in-one with built-in Dirac room correction. I’m still amazed at the SQ improvement from my little Sonos One with TruePlay enabled. I think naim are falling behind the curve here unless they have something up their sleeve.
It may not be the same people or for the same systems, Max. I can confirm that I never bid or discussed the possible aquisition of a Nait 1 over the last 30 years even though I now regret to have gone A&R60 with my Kan 1 in 1983.
Naim said that they looked at this during the development if the 272, and decided against it on sound quality reasons. I agree that it can have its place, but the Naim approach has always been that soynd quality trumps all other considerations. There are ways of introducing it into a Naim system - the Roon DSP for example does it quite well, but even then there is a SQ penalty to pay.
A very strong penalty in my experience. I had great fun playing with it, but even more fun listening to music after I turned room correction off!
In the end I think the UMik-1 is best for verifying speaker placement and room treatments, rather than for mucking with the data stream…
