XPS DR

£4,399

Naim XPS DR is an external power supply for numerous Naim Classic and other sources in the Naim ranges.  XPS DR contains six separately regulated, very low noise outputs, featuring a large toroidal transformer and six power regulators. These supplies are branched and re-regulated to deliver a very low noise power supply. DR technology was developed in 2012 for the Statement pre and power project, delivering Naim Audio’s best-ever standards of stable, low-noise power.

XPS DR can be used with Naim’s CDX2 CD player, NDS, NDX and ND5 XS network players, DAC digital to analogue converter, and HDX hard-disk player/server, as well as NDX2 (but not ND5 XS2).

This product qualifies for free, remote installation by one of our technicians.

XPS DR – Upgrade your music source.
The XPS is a simple and effective upgrade to enhance the music-making ability of your Naim Audio source component. As one of our most flexible performers it can be used to upgrade our CDX2 CD player and DAC digital to analogue converter, and it is also suitable for use with our NDS, NDX and ND5 XS network players and HDX hard-disk player/server. Its large toroidal transformer features four separate windings, coupled to six low-noise regulators and benefits from Naim Audio DR voltage regulator technology.

Features

  • Four isolated transformer windings with six low-noise DR power regulators – configured as two isolated regulators for digital at +15V, isolated +/-10V for DACs and isolated +/-23V for analogue stages
  • All-new Discrete Regulator (DR) configuration, delivering Naim Audio’s best-ever standards of stable, low-noise power
  • Brushed, black-anodised aluminium chassis plus anti-vibration feet

Technology & Craft
The Naim Audio XPS is a highly sophisticated power supply with six separately regulated, very low noise outputs, featuring a toroidal transformer and six power regulators. These supplies are branched and re-regulated, some twice in the CD player.

The addition of anti-vibration, resonance-controlling feet complement the elegant cast and extruded anti-magnetic chassis protect the sensitive internal components from resonance and microphonic vibration.

The XPS 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 mechanical decoupling and internal layout. These enhancements, developed through intensive listening tests, significantly raise performance and make music even more communicative and enjoyable.

Please note: only new classic series XPS units are compatible with the NDX network player, not ‘Olive’ versions. The old ‘Olive’ XPS is still compatible with CDX and CDS model CD players, the HDX hard disk player and the DAC digital to analogue converter however.
