    Default Hi from Sintra-Portugal

    Hi there

    New to the forum but been a member of numerous other hi-fi forums for ages using the same nick.

    I'm a Music lover and a Linn/Naim guy since the early 80's having owned several combinations over the years but I learned where to stop when you reach the point where you must spend thousands in order to improve the kit you've already have.

    I'm a firm believer that the most important factor in getting audio nirvana is your listening room. If you don't have that sorted out, forget it. No matter how expensive your system is, you will only get a fraction of its potential if you don't take this into consideration. I don't waste any money on the so called room audio enhancements accessories but just plain everyday furniture like rugs, curtains, picture frames, a settee and so forth. Also, speaker placement is of the upmost importance and no way I put my racks between them but on a side wall instead. A dedicated radial spur with its own earthig is also a must.

    My humble system consists of a black fluted Linn LP12/Cirkus/Ekos/ESCO Troika, Mogami T-Cable, Kore, Lingo, solid base kit resting on an original Sound Organization table, Naim 72 with NA 323K boards, HiCap, NAP180 placed on a DIY project based on the HI-FI Racks one into Neat Mystique2's speakers with Naim NAC A5 (2x4M) cables.

    I know there's plenty of room for some serious upgrades but I live in the real world and this kit gives me tremendous pleasure where I can simply forget about the hi-fi and concentrate on the Music. Maybe a NAP 250 will come in the near future plus a Beresford Caiman SEG dac with Dorado PS to replace the Naim cd3.5 I've just sold.

    Cheers,

    Pedro

    Welcome to AoS Pedro.

    Agree - the listening room is the most important part of the system to get 'right'.

    What are your tastes in music?
