Naim has confirmed its existence. Will be shown at The Bristol show but not played.
So they have announced its existence because of a leak in the US, saying that it is planned for release "this year" - I don't think that I will hold my breath based on recent evidence

It’s going to have to be something special to improve upon the sound of the existing NDS. I assume Naim is not just releasing it for connectivity benefits. I wonder how many power supply options it will have?

I would expect it to significantly improve on the NDS (which ...... No that's mean so I won't say it). It looks as though a 555PS would be a minimum requirement. I do like the look but it is not on my wish list.

Sorry I haven't been about much lately. A combination of work and family issues keeping me very busy. So bacck I come and I've missed much of the action it seems! :(

Oh dear some dealers just can't keep their mouths shut it seems!! :shock:

Anyway, the new 555 Naim streamer is some way off I believe, so yes don't hold your breath as you may turn Blue!

As for the other side (of the border so to speak) another dealer leaked the new products for the LP12 which have been on the cards for a while actually and no Boron cantilevers Chris although it has been suggested.............

The new Lingo 4 and Urika 2 will ship to the UK next week I hope as I have pencilled in Saturday 24th to have an open day to show them - Please keep an eye on our news page and I'll post here once I'm certain I will have stock - No waiting for months on this, just days or maybe a week I hope.

The Lingo looks very keenly priced at about £100.00 more than the Lingo 3 as it also includes the new motor!!

As for the Urika 2, well I have complained as it could have been called a Ureka E (Exakt) or D (Digital) as 2 implies Urika one is obsolete and it's most certainly not. I expect to sell far more Urika 1s than Urika 2s although the option is nice for DS/DSM and Exakt owners, so panic Mr Mainwearing :lol:

Bye for now,

Peter

I did a comparison recently between an NDS and a Linn KDS/3 and the NDS wasn’t really up to it. For anyone who loves the sound of their LP12, I’d be surprised if they preferred the NDS.

I’m not sure that I would get a pass for the 24th as well :wink:

Indeed! Assuming that Urika E is a no-brainer upgrade for my LP12/Exakt Akubarik system, I'm hoping that there will be p/ex or other second hand market value for my Urika I + Chord Sarum Super Arays. :roll:

I can see a very buoyant trade in market in Urika 1 for those wanting to follow the Exakt route.
Check out the quality dealers and remember due to the location of the devices it's more than likely they will be in very good condition.

I know, I know. Mrs O is getting fed up already :roll:

Now, if I buy a S/H Urika, that means I have saved some money, therefore the KEEL will also be discounted (man math at work)
