Naim NAC 282 Preamplifier (Power Supply Sold Separately)

This pre-amp needs two power sources. The digital and control circuits are powered by an INCLUDED NAPSC. The audio circuits of the preamp need an external power supply (sold separately), such as the  FlatCap XS, HiCap, or SuperCap. Alternatively, some Naim power amps (the NAP 155 XS and NAP 200) can power these audio circuits. 

So for example, you have a Naim 155 XS or Naim NAP 200, you don't need to buy anything else--the NAC 282 is powered by the included NAPSC + the NAP 200 (using the current interconnect).

If you have any other power amp, you will need to buy the NAC 282 AND a Naim external power supply such as the FlatCap XS, HiCap, or SuperCap. 

Step up from the NAC 202 and you arrive at the outstanding NAC 282, which includes the NAPSC power supply unit optionally available on its sibling. The NAPSC independently powers the NAC 282’s digital and control circuits, leaving its audio circuits to either the power supply of a NAC 155 XS or NAP 200 power amplifier, or to one of Naim's standalone FlatCap XS, HiCap or SuperCap power supplies. The result is even greater transparency and superior musicality plus, of course, all the flexibility you’d expect from a Naim preamplifiers.
