SNAIC 4 cables are used in an all Naim hifi system, to join a preamp to a power amplifier, where the system has no power supply, an active crossover to a power amplifier, a power supply to a power amp, a power supply to a power supply, a NAT 101 tuner to a SNAPS and an early NAT 01 tuner to a NAPST.
Please note: although these SNAIC 4 cables look like they could be used to join Quad equipment together, or Quad to Naim equipment, they are not compatible with Quad equipment and damage can occur if so connected.
Cables to join the 4 pin DIN output sockets on some sources such as the Naim Uniti, StageLine and power supplies including TeddyPardo, to the normal 5 pin DIN inputs on preamps and integrated amps.
To join the 4 pin DIN output socket on a Naim or TeddyPardo power supply, Stageline or DAC v1 to a non-Naim preamp or power amp fitted with phono input sockets or a source fitted with phono/RCA output sockets such as a preamp, streaming device or CD Player to a Naim power amp with 4 pin DIN input socket.
SNAIC 5 cables are fitted with special horseshoe shaped 5 pin DIN plugs and are used in a Naim system to join a power supply including TeddyPardo, to either a preamp, CD Player, Active Crossover or a StageLine. They can also be used to join some Naim preamps to a StageLine.
Cables to join all hifi sources to high end Naim power amps, fitted with one or two 3 pin female XLR input socket.
Les Wolstenholme of Avondale Audio has devised a great way to improve the sound of a Naim system by separating the audio from the power lines. All that's required are specially wired cables to join the preamp to the power supply and the preamp to the power amp.
The cables in this section allow a Naim Nait integrated amplifier to be connected to an external bass management system or other processor. It allows the preamplifer and power amplifier sections of an integrated amplifier to be separated, without the use of an external power supply.
These cables are used to join a Naim or TeddyPardo power supply to a Headline headphone amp.
In a Naim system, these cables are used to join a CD Player or tuner, to a preamp or integrated. This section also contains the special Uniti gain reversed cable, for use with the AV2 processor to a preamp or integrated.
Cables to connect any hifi source, including record and play devices, fitted with phono/RCA sockets to a 5 pin DIN input socket on a Naim preamp or intergrated amplifier.
- or - to join a Naim CD player or tuner to any make of preamp, intergrated or power amplifier with phono/RCA input sockets.
Cables to join the 5 pin DIN tape recorder socket on a Naim preamp or intergrated, to a tape recorder or other recording device for simultaneous record and replay, fitted with phono/RCA or jack input and output sockets.
Modern digital sources such as a CD Player or a media streamer etc. sometimes overload early Naim preamps, making the volume control very coarse to operate. These cables feature attenuation to reduce the output level of the source. Naim recommend 6dB but 10, 15 and 18dB is also available.
To join a source fitted with a 3.5mm jack output socket, such as a portable player, iPod, computer etc. to a Naim preamp, fitted with a 5 pin DIN input socket.
Please Note: - These cables are directional - they take the audio signal FROM the 3.5mm Jack TO the 5 pin DIN plug.
Some high end hi-fi equipment and most professional equipment is fitted with XLR output connectors.
A wide selection of XLR cables is offered here for use with such sources allowing them to be connected to Naim pre-amps.
This section contains cables to join the 5 pin DIN tape output socket of a Naim preamp or integrated to a variety of recording devices, and headphone amps.
For connecting a variety of sources to the BNC, turntable and CD inputs on Naim preamps.
Cables for joining professional equipment fitted with 6.3mm output jack sockets to a Naim preamp or intergrated, fitted with a 5 pin DIN input socket.
Link plugs are used with Naim preamps and the integrated NAIT 5 to allow them to be used with a power amp and no power supply.
They are supplied fitted at the factory but are sometimes missing if the equipment is sold second hand.
They are available in both the earlier push button latching style and the later ring locking style.
