    Why not take it back, surely you have 14/30 days to return?

    Good suggestion. As there’s nothing wrong with it, I wasn’t sure if I could return. I also didn’t really want to inconvenience the retailer with returning as they’ve been very helpful / demonstrating speakers and spent time helping me. They are also an hours drive away!

    If there’s no interest, I’ll consider returning it next Saturday as a contingency plan.

    Agreed, it’s a great piece of kit, good streaming, Roon support, A/B amplification and AirPlay 2 support on the roadmap!

    That all said, my primary requirement was for an AirPlay 2 / Roon music streamer for my living room, but as I’m already using a Yamaha RXV3060 amplifier and 5.2.4 speakers so it felt a bit better overkill to have a second amplifier with dedicated speakers, so I’m looking at lower cost streamers to use as a source for my AV amplifier instead!

    Just in case it's of interest to anyone, I'm happy to accept £1,650 (the rationale being that I'd need to sell it for £1,900 including fees on the other site to get £1,650 and the recent sales appear to be around the £1,750 mark).

    The above offer is only available until 8pm on Thursday 1st February, as it's scheduled to be sold by 8pm on Friday on the other site it's listed on.

    Jesus, take it back, u have a legal right too, all dealers are gunna be accommodating and demo stuff, it’s how they get sales, they expect stuff to be returned a percentage of the time, to lose out that much money for the sake of an hours drive is simply ludicrous. U could have couriered it back even and saved a fortune on what ur selling it for!

    And remember your price is only a £100 less than Analogue Seduction are selling it at and any buyer of yours would loose the warranty as it is not transferable. I am in the market for one of these but I would want a much lower price if I was taking the risk of buying without warranty otherwise I would prefer to pay the full price.

    It hasn't yet been registered and I'd provide proof of purchase for the warranty.

    I'd be happy to accept £1,600, but that's really as low as I'd be willing to go.

    Hi Ian,

    It doesn’t, but it can be fitted for £150 I believe?

    Thanks for the quick reply.
    It would have been quite a bonus if the HDMI board was fitted.
    Would love to take a punt on this but I've got to resist, as Ive way to much gear in the house.

    :) good advise!

    I'm actually getting inclined in that direction (albeit I'd use it in a different room to my living room) as it integrates so well with Roon and will have Airplay 2!

    The issue I've had till now has been trying to integrate it with my AV amplifier as my speakers aren't full range and I need to use a subwoofer and I couldn't see a way of getting it working...

    How do you find the Naim Atom with the Kef LS50 speakers?

    I presumed this sold on eBay last night? Was quite tempted, but not 100% sure... Kind of wished I gone for it now! :)

    Yes and no, the auction ended, I'm currently in discussion with the buyer around price / logistics for collection, etc. To be honest, once eBay fees (16%) are factored, etc. I'm beginning to wonder if it makes more sense to keep it for a while longer as it's a really nice bit of kit!

    If you're interested, I can keep you posted on if the sale goes through if you like?
