Naim has announced the addition of a new multi-rail, slimline power supply in its XS Series: the XP5 XS. The XP5 XS, which comes complete with Naim’s Burndy interconnect, is the ideal partner for extracting even greater performance from the ND5 XS network player and Naim DAC. This versatile product is also compatible with the NDX network player, CDX2 (models with and without S/PDIF), CDX, CDS2 and CDS3 CD players as well as the HDX hard disk player / server.
Power supplies have always been a significant part of the Naim product catalogue. Almost from the beginning of the brand it was recognised that adding a better power supply could increase the performance of a Naim preamplifier. This philosophy has been extended over time to include CD players, DACs and now network players.
XP5 XS sits below the XPS and 555 PS supplies in the performance hierarchy but still delivers superb value for money. The XP5 XS contains a custom-designed toroidal transformer, multiple-regulated outputs via its Burndy sockets and new low-capacitance, ceramic heat-sinks. $2795
