What else would one expect from a good Naim system ?  Emphasis on good as there are some that are unremarkable too, one of the quirks of Naim systems.  IMHO, these can be sensitive to setup and matching, where even 2 similar systems can sound different.


At only 10 hours of play, 90 more hours to go, the addition of the Jan Allaerts MC1B resulted in a significant increase in detail.


Quote from DNC - "Tons of low level resolution and articulation ... The cartridge is particularly strong with vocals, voices seemed to stand out even more from the surroundings ... Bass articulation is superb ... The MC1B managed to address the pitch problem of the LP12 matched with the former cartridge ..."


If you've heard the Naim DBL speakers sounding like bad PA speakers before - think again, not with the Jan Allaerts MC1B in tow.


It was a night of mostly heavy metal for us.  Listening to Metallica's covers of Black Sabbath and Mercyful Fate, the system majored in outstanding, dazzling bass definition and rendition, one of the best we've heard.  Balance and timbre were topnotch, where instruments and voices on complex passages were clearly delineated, while keeping the musical flow intact.  The grip on rapid  driving bass lines was superlative, and delivered with the speed and bite that good Naim systems are uniquely capable of.  The massive 15-inch woofers of the DBLs with their foam surrounds definitely help, and transient recovery and attack  were first-rate.  IMHO, there really is nothing like a good floorstander for scale.
