I have a stellar S300 which I am in love with. It powers Dynaudio Focus 160s in a fairly small room 12x10 ish…
It’s fed a tidal lossless signal through chromecast audio - Schitt modi 2 uber - schiit saga preamp - stellar - dynaudios.
I just yesterday took delivery of a Naim 5i-2 integrated amp. Same audio feed from the chromecast and schiit dac, but obviously skipping the preamp and going straight to the integrated.
The power is obviously much less, but i’m really really enjoying the sound - i mean immensely like it’s the best i’ve ever heard in any of my small systems.
Is pairing a Naim preamp with my stellar S300 a bad idea? Should I pony up for a PS Audio preamp? Please advise!
Thanks so much.
