Power Supply for Naim CDX2, DAC, HDX, NDX, ND5XS (Includes interconnect)


 


The importance of power supplies has been at the heart of Naim philosophy for over twenty five years. Naim research proved that divorcing the main power supply from a CD player was wholly beneficial, whereas the more common arrangement of housing the converter circuitry in a separate box caused many problems.


Timing, dynamic range and clarity all significantly improve by adding an XPS to a CDX2. Complex passages become more understandable, bringing far more involvement and enjoyment from the music.

Full Description

The XPS is a simple and effective upgrade to enhance the music-making ability of your Naim source component. As one of our most flexible performers it can be used to upgrade our CDX2 CD player and DAC digital to analogue converter, and it is also suitable for use with our NDS, NDX and ND5 XS network players and HDX hard-disk player/server. Its large toroidal transformer features six separately regulated, low-noise outputs and benefits from Naim DR voltage regulator technology.

Features

    Six separately regulated low-noise outputs plus six power regulators
    All-new Discrete Regulator (DR) configuration, delivering Naim’s best-ever standards of stable, low-noise power
    Brushed, black-anodised aluminium chassis plus anti-vibration feet


 Technology & Craft

The Naim XPS is a highly sophisticated power supply with six separately regulated, very low noise outputs, featuring a toroidal transformer and six power regulators. These supplies are branched and re-regulated, some twice in the CD player.

The addition of anti-vibration, resonance-controlling feet complement the elegant cast and extruded anti-magnetic chassis protect the sensitive internal components from resonance and microphonic vibration.

The XPS was updated in 2012 as a result of a two year project to develop a new discrete regulator (DR) for Naim power supplies. The new Naim DR now features, alongside improvements to the mechanical decoupling and internal layout. These enhancements, developed through intensive listening tests, significantly raise performance and make music even more communicative and enjoyable.


Please note: only new classic series XPS units are compatible with the NDX network player, not ‘Olive’ versions. The old ‘Olive’ XPS is still compatible with CDX and CDS model CD players, the HDX hard disk player and the DAC digital to analogue converter however. Please contact us if you are unsure of compatibility.
