  • Sorry, should have said I'm Dave.

    Sounds as if it should be good! Not that I have any up-to-date knowledge about analogue. Oops! 
  • Hello how long have you had the beasty?
  • Have you gone all Rabbie Burns on us, Col?

    Hello,

    I've been into Hifi for 10 years now always upgrading into Naim equipment. I listen all types of music but classic and opera, especially pop rock, accoustic and jazz.

    My home system is:
    HiFI: NAC 252-supercap2/Nap 300/ CDS3-XPS2/ module Viard silver HD / B&W 802N/ cables HP MPC Abyss evo/ barrette QB8 + Frey2 + red dawns

    HC: Lexicon MC12B V.EQ/ Nap V175/ BD Yamaha 1067S/ Velodyne DD15

    I am now into upgrading my speaker cables. I am into several paths TQ green, UB or EWA LS25. Been told TQ green had been designed specially for naim so looks like best option but LS25 is quite tempting.
  • Hi Shawn!
    Welcome.
    Dave (Uglymusic) will be glad to have another jazzer on the team!
    Never tried TQ Green myself, but others here have (I think), tho possibly not with Naim. Plenty of Wonfor acolytes on the forum. :-)

    Hello I am new here my cousin Colin I said I should visit, so HI all.
  • Hi June.
    You’re very welcome. :-)
    I see a little info about your cables from your FS post. What else is going on in your kit...?
    (I’m assuming you’re a member of the (Colin) Wonfor clan...)
  • Hi Doc,

  • I have a Red Claymore, Inca Tech made only a few, they are with Red Diamonds and a  Red Dais, in my reading room here in the Lakes.

    Another Claymore owner! Now I'm really feeling in the minority :-)

    Hi All, Ben joined us on The Audio Standard a few days ago, so I thought it only polite to reciprocate.  I've been a music lover since my teens and now have the system of my early dreams, including a great room to put it in.  I'm also a founder administrator of The Audio Standard forum.

    I'll do the sig thing in a moment so that you can see what I'm using.  Looking forward to joining in.

    Martin, Hi.
    Lovely to see you here.
    Make yourself at home. :-)
    Looking at your sig’, you’ve got your sources base covered. Dave (Uglymusic) will be pleased to see another Pi here.
    I’ve liked the Usher speakers i’ve heard, but haven’t ever been able to spend much time with them. What would you say are the things you like most about them?
  • The Ushers, where to start?  Unless I hit the lottery, they're pretty much my final speakers.  Big and heavy, they do everything at least to a good standard and many things, like scale, magnificently.  The beryllium midrange and tweeters have great detail, but are not harsh.  Twin 11" Kevlar woofers per side give a sense of structure to the sound, and are fast enough to keep up with the other drivers.  I don't need a sub with these speakers, they do organ pedals very nicely and move serious air on music like Yello.

    More than anything, they are musical and get out of the way, not imparting tonal aberrations or failing on imaging.  I love that I can just sit and fall into the music, which is probably the best thing I can say about them.
  • Hi Martin

    And welcome to Chews. All RPi users are extra welcome here, where these days I need some moral support :-)

    An SACD player is one of those things I from time to time think about. Do you get much use from it?
  • I've moved the ensuing discussion to the Digital section.

    Hi
    I followed a link from Colin onto this site and it seems quite friendly 
    I have Open Baffles that I made myself and at present use a PC for play back 
    Amps are a mixture of active (bass) and direct digital (mid/treble)
    I also have a T/T but not in use at present 
    John
    Those open baffle speakers John has, are so so good, I heard them last year in a less than ideal location for them, but they sang so well.
  • OK guys he is a spy , all hide quick,------------------------------ Hi Paul have fun
  • Hah! John's here, too. Hi John!
