Located at a tranquil private residence in East Coast, this home stereo system setup finds itself blending effortlessly into our client's modern decor. Our client and his wife, both avid music lovers with varied musical taste, wanted a music system that could recapture anything from the energetic syncopation of jazz drums to the synth heavy chords of Van Halen's "Jump". Initially unsure if the system would work in their space, we arranged for a home demonstration to help them decide. Delighted by what they heard (and saw), the system quickly found itself a home.
In this setup we matched the Naim 272 streaming pre-amp with the Naim NAP-300 DR power-amp to provide enough control and power to drive Focal's Scala Utopia V2. This three box setup utilizes Naim Audio's streaming expertise with Tidal, Spotify, Internet Radio and uPnP functionality for seamless access to our client's music library. With each device cleverly position side-by-side within the console, the entire setup subtly complemented the decor, creating the perfect example of a sound system co-existing with interior design.
