I've experimented with, and owned, numerous amplifiers over the years, including other NAIM gear, and most recently AUDIOLAB. I have much exposure to NAIM gear through a retail store I have a privileged relationship with.

The NAIT 5i-2 is so far removed from the competition that there is no comparison at all. I've trialled the Rega amps extensively, and owned, very, very briefly, an exposure 3030. None of these other amps project music in terms of depth, spread, timing , and cohesiveness in the way the NAIM does. I can pick the NAIM in a blind test with any ancillary equipment.

NAIMs ability to drive complex loads is a function of superb power supply design, and 1 NAIM WATT is worth 10 of anybody elses. See what it can deliver into a 4 ohm load. Most of all, listen to the music, and try it with TOTEM Dreamcatchers ( amazing) Mites, Arros or Rainmakers. Satisfaction in a small room, for sure.
