Musical Fidelity X150 or Naim NAIT 5i ?

What is the best choice amplifier between these two new products.

I look for refine high frequencies, good timing and hi-fi reproduction.

I search a good match with a my pair of Quad 12 L.

Thanks for your recommendations.

I haven't heard them with Quad 12L. However with B&W 805 speaker, MF X-150 is quite disappointing. In short, thin sound, shallow stage depth, width is okay, detail is there, musicallity is not at the level of fidelity etc.

The Naim Nait 5i does not fully impressed me neither, but it was good, actually, it was very good with all sorts of music.

By the way, MF x-150 was partnered with x-ray v3, nait 5i was with Naim CD5i.

My recommendation for potential Nait5i buyer ? Yes, go ahead try and buy, if it is your taste.

Recommendation for MF X-150 ? Well, you should audition other systems, like Naim, YBA, Creek, Exposure, Classe, and including even cheaper system (such as Nad and Cambridge). Oh, you should listen other musical fidelity amps too.
