I’ve demo’d the old one, and, as much as not I’m really a fan of Naim, it did sound really impressive for a small, 1 box wonder. Whether it’s £1000 worth of “impressiveness“ is up to the individual I guess.......my kids both agree it‘s worth it though!I'll start of by saying I've never heard one of these but....can a single speaker ever sound 'right'?
I know it's in a much lower league but I tried a single Sonos One and having the sound come from a single point source just sounded odd. When I added a second speaker it sounded right/more realistic.
As I said, I haven't heard one but I can't understand how the sound quality from a single speaker can be worth close to £1000.
