    Naim DAC

    All Naim products are single ended and the DAC is equipped with a set of DIN and RCA analogue outputs.

    Finally heard the DAC at the Rocky Show. It's very nice.

    Oh dear. A poor Nait 3.

    Oh dear. Does the Uniti have a digital input? I am leery of All-in-One type of unit ( for one thing I would think it's noisy ) but at least it should retain the Naim voicing.

    I haven't dealt with a Uniti, but was it at least on par with Nait5i-2/CDi-2 ?

    Naim DAC

    Just to get a taste of a Naim DAC, you can try a DAC that's in the SuperNait. Altho, I assume a stand alone unit would be even better considering the price. I preferred it over the Lavry DA10. ( playing HDX ripped files via an HDX )

    Naim DAC

    A NAP 300 is a dual mono inside, IIRC. So you get ch1. ch2. XLR for each channel.

    Naim power amps from NAP 250 and up always have had XLR outs to the power amp.

    well, it's a wrong source for a NAHA for sure because the set up didn't work.

    DeJanM, Nice to see you again. GS1000. I had a brief listen and didn't much care for what it did. Not sure if it's worth the extra over the RS1 to be honest. I actually prefer the 325i over them. :x NAHA/NAPSC does work with the RS1, but I highly recommend getting the HC2 for the pair. (...

    That's a very nice set you have. Btw, transparency issue is somewhat misleading as it improves with the source and PSU upgrade amongst other things! I do wish they will come up with a Reference Series NAHA someday. ( the one with floating brass circuit board )

    The best PSU you can use with a NAHA is a SuperCap2. A better supply certainly gives a good performance boost but maybe depends on the 'fones you use. Whilst I heard a goodness of a SC2 with a RS1, I would have had a hard time justifying 6k on it. Switching 'fones to AT W5k, I still miss...

    A NAHA doesn't work that well with AKG K501. :x

    It would be interesting to see how you get on with the G1000. Which I have not tried it with mine but I loved the RS1 with a Krell kps25s.

    The voltage on the PSU was 240V already?

    Thanks. One more question. What phonostage do you use and what loading are you using? ( I assume the loading doesn't change after the mod? )

    Koetsu would be a 180 degree change from Lyra is! I was also interested in MC Bee as well to see if there is any resemblance to the Miyabi but then I think the weight of the cartridge is too light for the ARO to work properly. ( IIRC, MC Bee is less than 5g ) What does the modification of...

    Have you tried a Zu 103 version? I never had a reported tracking problem on stock 103s, either.

    Brought down the Sondek in the main rig over the Holidays. It was a great fun! With an Akiva/ARO. With a Miyabi/47 I couldn't give it a proper support for the Sondek, but it sounded great. Currently, I've been using a Phonosophie No.3/ARO in my office for a change. Since I use a...
