Anyone here using NAIM amplification? XS? XS2? 5i? SN1? SN2?
If so, what DAC are you pairing with it?
XS2 + aging modded Eastern Electric Minimax. Have bought and sold Ciunas and Yulong DA8. I could have lived with either but in the end decided to keep the Minimax.
I'm still searching for a worthy replacement. Trying to put more meat on the bones for classical music.
Will try and borrow Naim DAC V1 and Hegel HD25. These two are way over what I want to spend on a DAC so they would have to deliver big time.
After reading a few positive reviews I'm considering the Arcam irDAC as an inexpensive non ESS alternative. But its wall wart power supply leaves me skeptical.
