Børresen 01 monitor loudspeakers, Aavik U-380 integrated amplifier, Naim CD5XS (as transport), D-TC Supreme Power Box and Power Distribution, Ansuz DTC Supreme cables
The all-one-family of Børresen loudspeakers, Aavik electronics, and Ansuz cabling, distributed by Gated HiFi and displayed by Chicago dealer NextLevel HiFi, was having a really rough time of it until their new Aavik U-380 integrated amplifier ($39,000) showed up. It was several days late. RMAF had been chosen for its Global Debut, so everyone was on pins and needles until the arrival of this 300-watt-into-8-ohms, Class-D baby, which includes separate DACs for PCM and DSD, four clocks and four power supplies, separate volume controls for each input, and optional dual phono stages claimed to have “the lowest noise floor on the planet.”
The Aavik U-380 was paired with a Naim CD5XS ($3995) used solely as a transport, Børresen 01 loudspeakers with D-TC Supreme Resonance Control ($32,500), D-TC Supreme Power Box ($14,400) and Supreme Power Distribution ($38,000), and Ansuz DTC Supreme cabling.… Read the full article

We must journey back to 1983 to locate the original model: a shoebox-sized chassis that could be fed via Naim’s own DIN-socketed line-level inputs or an RCA-socketed MM phono input. Loudspeaker output power was rated at a mere 13wpc but to this day it remains a deceptively punchy performer.
When the V3 NAIT rolled off the production line ten years later, the original’s (and NAIT 2’s) ‘chrome bumper’ look had been swapped out for ‘olive’, the power output nudged to 30wpc and the chassis widened to full-width (but with a lower roof).… Read the full article
‘Mu-so 2nd Generation evolves the iconic styling of its predecessor, but under its luxury aluminium casing are game- changing performance, feature and functionality upgrades,’ said George Poutakidis of BusiSoft AV, which distributes Naim in Australia. ‘From high-resolution streaming to multi-room music to TV sound; you’ve never heard it so good from an all-in-one wireless system.’
The main control knob now has 15 touch-sensitive buttons, more attractive lighting and a proximity sensor that wakes the Mu-so whenever you approach it.… Read the full article
