I have the opportunity to purchase a Nap250 in a marketplace.
I’m curious about the differences I might experience when I replace the Nap180 with the Nap250 (Olive)
The Nap250 have been recently serviced. (2023)
Currently, my system is set up as follows:
Main System: NAC82 / NAP180 with Hi-Cap
(Nac: Serviced in 2020, Nap: Serviced in 2022)
Streamer: NDX 2 with an external XPS power supply
Speakers: Rogers LS5/9 connected with 5m Van-Damme cables.
My current concern is that I feel a slight lack of bass in some songs, and occasionally, the high-frequency range can be fatiguing to my ears. The condition of all my equipment and speakers is excellent.
I look forward to hearing about your experiences and advice.
The 250 is a wonderful upgrade over the 180. The sound will be bigger, fuller, with more drive and better control over the speakers. Just better all round. The olive 250 is a wonderful thing and the fact it’s recently serviced - presumably kept as original and not ‘improved’ with different caps etc - makes it a great buy.
Actually- I had borrowed "A5 Cables (4.5m pair) " from my friend and used it for about 1months. To be honest, from my perspective, I didn’t think it achieved the goals I had in mind. However, by chance, when I tried using (the cable I am currently using) I found it more satisfying according to my standards. But regarding to this posting . I guess that’s just human nature, always wanting to find something better …!
