IMO...I feel the Naim is just mid (not mid hi) SES. Maybe it's because it's fans always say it's got toe tapping P.I.A.K. hence exaggerated resale value. Got meh?  ??? To be honest... I can't say with any certainty that I could identify piak even if I stepped on it. Musicality... emo... etc etc ... yes.

System setup comprising of Source, amp and speakers and accessories:

< 3k = Low SES
3k < 8k = Below average SES
8k-20k = Average SES
20k-50k = Above average SES
Above 50k = High SES

Brand doesn't matter.

Who cares about SES if a cheap FM radio already sounds good enough in some instances.

Lets say if that cheap radio sounds the same or better than Naim, then we double confirmed can rank Naim at even lower SES liao, like what 1 bro here has suggested.

All cscbb had been saying is anyone who is higher SES (got play expensive hifi) wan is having good life so shouldn't be complaining at all despite of all the obvious corruption, nepotism, uncaring, vindictive and greedy government, incompetence, and poor social injustice prevailing in our society.

Agree?
