Let's take the Emotiva XPA-2/200, combined with say the Wyred4Sound DAC2 DSD, and compare it to the Naim SuperNait.

The former would cost about $2300 and the latter $5000.

How would they compare sonically?

How do EMO products compare sonically in general to NAIM?

Or should I not even be asking...

Current HiFi: Dynaudio Focus 260 | Meridian Direct DAC | NAIM SuperNait 2
Cables: Chord Cobra VEE3 RCA>DIN | Tellurium Q Black 3M

Past HiFi: Dynaudio Excite X16 | Dynaudio Focus 160 | Harman Kardon HK3490 | NAIM XS2 (70w)

You may hear a difference in pre amps. If you were not aware of which amp was being used I have serious doubts that you could distinguish one from the other.

I guess I am crazy.

No real feedback...and a "BEWARE of Emotiva" thread at the top.

read the beware of emotiva thread. It's one complaint about an amp getting broken because it was shipped to somewhere in europe. its mostly full of people saying how they love emotiva.

If you are in the USA, take a Emotiva for a spin, do not like it send it back.

Who needs 4K?... just go see your optometrist.
