>I think a lot of Naim's good reputation is due to nationalism.

No, I am British and cannot stand the sound of Naim kit. However the people that do are not lying, it just has a sound they like which seems to be half decent bass, poor midrange and an abysmal treble performance.

As you know naim users talk a lot about prat= pace ,rhythm and timing which is their holy grail.Everything else doesn,t really matter to them.
In truth Naim does this well and with certain type of music conveys the rhythmic qualities very well.However some would say that this effect is overdone and makes other type of music too aggressive.
I think the new breed of naim amps are probably better.
However a good amp should do everything well.
You should hear the timing of my set amp- now that is something that I expected I would miss but it is better than ever.
