    That's pretty good per hour, do they do amplifier servicing as well?

    That's a disappointment, Naim. Ovator 800. They better be active for that money.

    You could get a nice pair of DSP8000 for £30k. Unfortunately I don't have the room.............

    They must be immense, that NACA5 looks like bell-wire.

    I'll have a pair of the ones that didn't take 5 years to make, if they sound significantly better than the S-4/600's, I think I could scrape together about £1200.00 for a pair ;)

    Problem is I suspect, is you will need the thick end of around £75K of black boxes to make them work :rolleyes:

    It looks a messy solution and typical of Naim --- "with vision" not in my book.

    Three pairs of NACA per speaker! Does that mean 6 or 3 power amps plus active crossovers etc etc etc.

    Cheers,

    Given the second hand price of 400 and 600's I imagine the demand for these will be slight. Only for those who currently have 555 everything and sime must have the matching set.


    Nice bass drivers though!
