Default Stella Utopia Evo & Naim Statement

Any experience with above ? Auditioned the Stella as a potential replacement for my ProAc. Quite impressed but the upstream equipment were unfamiliar to me. The Stella Utopias were driven by FM pre power similar in price to the Statement. Help.

Source 3 - DCS Vivaldi + Antelope reference clock or Cybershaft Op18 (not floating my boat so far)

Source 5 - ROON ROCK with Aurender W20 as NAS & 2 units of SOTM switch with 10M input (the new frontier but still cannot beat CD for now) - ROON endpoint - Vivaldi upsampler

Amplification - Naim Statement

Speakers - ProAc Carbon 8 + JL FM113 x2 (replacement purchased - Stella Utopia EVO but due to lockdown, could be a year's wait)

Purepower 2000 x 2 (&$@#% but
sounds nice)
