Naim Audio HICAP Mk2 Power Supply
Ultra-low noise preamplifier and electronic crossover power supply.
Huge toroidal transformer and smoothing capacitors provide exceptional dynamic stability.
Each of the power outputs on the HiCap use Naim's specially designed discrete regualtors for optimum performance. The design can be used to power all of the Naim phono stage preamplifier, active crossovers and preamplifiers except the NAC 552 and NAC 252. In the case of the NAC 282 preamplifier a second HiCap may be used, bringing further improvements.
The addition of anti-vibration, resonance-controlling feet complement the elegant new cast and extruded anti-magnetic chassis to protect the sensitive internal components from resonance and microphonic vibration.
Naim Discrete Regulator
The HiCap 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 wire routing, mechanical decoupling and internal layout. These improvements, developed through intensive listening tests, significantly raise performance and make music even more communicative and enjoyable.
