    In the simplist way, how would you describe the sound from the A22? Thanks.

    Funny, just thinking that last night. :D

    I should really have learnt by now that there is no short cut or temp solutions. You only end up spending more in the long run. :rolleyes:

    Anyway, where are those pics?

    Good point! Give me a moment.

    In the meantime there could be a interesting conversation developing here if you are interested!

    Glad to see such a neat set up. :smashin:

    Thanks for the pics. But no DVD5?:smile:

    For me to 'go Naim' would cost £2200(AV2) + £2500(DVD5) approx = £4700 or so. Take off money from the sale of my current kit and a haggled discount say, I'd still have to generate £3200 or so. Whereas a brand spanking new or mint dem A22 + Dave would be £1000 approx with about £200 towards it = £800. Hence the interest.

    As much as I'd love the Naim rig to use with my ATC speakers, is it really worth £2400 more? And before you ask, if I went Naim, I'd do the whole hog and not match an Arcam DV27 with the AV2. It's a 'mental' thing. :rolleyes:

    Thx mate but it'll be packed up soon and maybe put into storage as we've moving over to your side of the world beginning of August :eek:

    DVD5? It isn't even out yet and already there's a huge debate on the Naim form :boring:

    £3200 is a lot of money but I think you could be pretty confident of covering off HT and musical duties in the one hit. Unless you have a freakin big TV in between them? If you do you may as well forget decent audio IMHO.
