Hey everyone - as a Naim guy stepping into Arcam gear, I have a puzzling question. I love my Naim Nait 5i and CD5i setup but thought I would up my HT solution and so picked up an Arcam AVR-350. I've been playing with it for the past few days and trying to see if I can do away with my Naim setup and just live with the Arcam receiver partnered with my CD5i. Sounds sensible right? Well, my CD5i doesn't seem to gel with the AVR-350 quite like it does with my Nait 5i and I can't really figure out why. I suspect that the analog outputs are inferior to the din output on the actual CD5i but the funny thing is, while I've been trying to get things to sound "right", I've been listening to my Toshiba HD DVD player via digital coax to the Arcam and discovered that I actual prefer this setup to my Naim CD player / Arcam setup. The soundstage is wider, deeper and everything has more impact and slam. I guess this is due to the excellent DAC in the Arcam. My question is - does this scenario sound right? Should the HD DVD player / Arcam AVR-350 pairing sound better than my $2000 CDN Naim CD5i hooked up to my Arcam in analog direct? All opinions appreciated.
