Naim Audio HiCap-DR Power Supply
The only people skeptical of power upgrades are the ones who haven't heard them. Improving the power supply to your audio system brings the most noticeable, fundamental, exciting improvements over any other incremental upgrade. (A big jump in speaker quality is obviously going to bring a lot more.)
Naim offers a flexible (and yes, sometimes complicated) upgrade path through nearly every level of component with its range of power supplies.
Each of the power outputs on the HiCap use Naim Audio's specially designed discrete regulators for optimum performance. The design can be used to power all of the Naim Audio 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 complements the elegant new cast and extruded anti-magnetic chassis to protect the sensitive internal components from resonance and microphonic vibration.
The HiCap was updated in 2012 as a result of a two-year project to develop a new discrete regulator (DR) for Naim Audio power supplies. The new Naim Audio DR now features, alongside improvements to the wire routing, mechanical decoupling, and internal layout. These enhancements, developed through intensive listening tests, significantly raise performance, and make music even more communicative and enjoyable.
