Notes:

 

First of all, thanks to KC for some of the wonderful photos below.  The shots in daylight ambient light are great, with a lovely mood, which we cannot duplicate with our flash.  Just add an artist's easel and some paints, and it can pass of as an artist's studio :)  At any rate, KC is himself an artist in photography.

 

This system is located in a room of wooden walls and floor, with an arched ceiling similar to what we find in attics.  It consists of the top of the line Naim Audio system, except for the speakers and analog system, which are otherwise just as capable.  With the Neat Ultimatum MF9 loudspeakers in the system, a more balanced sonic presentation is achieved, a departure from the all-out attack of the Naim speakers they replace.  The top Naim system certainly is one of the systems that can bring out the best that the Neat Ultimatum MF9 speakers are capable of.  To cut to the chase, this is certainly a reference system for Naim Audio users, and in particular those who prefer a different presentation from Naim's own speakers.

 

In Naim circles, a common phrase heard is that "it's what the musicians are doing that matters most, and not where they are".  We agree to this wholeheartedly, but it also doesn't hurt if one knows where they are, in addition to hearing their instruments in higher timbral fidelity :)  It would be great when the musician will not wonder why his carefully tuned guitar or piano was sounding different in a recording ...
