Naim, Nola, and Nordost, Or: Pace, Rhythm, and Timing
There sure is a lot of drinking going on at this show, I thought to myself.
Inside one of these rooms, I found a little rock’n’roll system of Nola Micro Grand loudspeakers ($15,200/pair); Naim HDX server ($8150), XPS power supply ($5000), NAC 252 preamplifier ($9250), NAP 250 power amplifier ($5750), all on Naim equipment racks; Clearaudio Performance turntable ($2800) with Talisman moving-coil phono cartridge ($1750); and Nordost Frey speaker cables ($2699/2m pair) and interconnects ($1099/1m pair).
This system smelled like red wine and 1980s nostalgia. There was a lot of dancing going on in here.
