Note: new V2 model now retails for $5,490 CAN
Taken on trade. Excellent physical condition, however, this unit suffers from the common Naim display problem on these units. While the display is receiving power, it is so dim that it is unreadable. It plays very well via Android and iOS apps and the customer had been using it with no difficulties. Note, the new V2 model now doesn’t even have a display as this was a common problem. So, we offer you this unit “as is” and you can save considerable money if you’re fine with a non-working display. Otherwise, you should be able to send it to the Canadian distributor and pay to get a new display installed.From Naim:
