This might have been asked before but I can't find a definitive answer.  Other than the agent, are there any recommendations for someone who can recap a CB series ?

At the risk of losing my Naim dealership... go listen to the Lumin D2.

Seems a waste of using a good streamer to play MP3

Don't think so. The front-panel USB port is for USB Flash with structured content, not streams. RTM

Sounds like the whole idea of high fidelity escapes some people.

Not all music made of high fidelity. There is a thing called musical.

Yes you can enjoy music from even a Bluetooth wireless speaker.

But if you are trying to achieve high fidelity with a good quality streamer, you should judge it on its ability to reproduce high quality sources.

If I evaluated every system using a lossy Bluetooth as my source, I wouldn’t bother getting past my phone and a pair of cheap IEMs.

Where can I find DIN cables for Naim CDS3 in Singapore? I am looking to upgrade from my Chord Cobra cable.
