Available in black or silver, N1Zs has the benefit of 2 Tb of internal SSD storage, double the standard one, along with a host of other upgrades. Price is £7000 and claims are that it offers significant sonic gains over the only slightly cheaper standard version.

That did it for us, even though we’ve yet to hear it, so we’ve ordered a demo unit.

If you are seriously tempted, please get in touch. Of the 40 units made, 20 are UK-destined. As of now, seven are sold already.

Beyond the one we will get, there is already a demo unit available, so serious comparative demonstrations are a possibility.

This could be just to ticket to accompany your nice new Chord Dave, Naim NDS or Linn Klimax DS.

All of these things we have by spooky coincidence.
