Augmenting the relative components in a Naim system with an additional power supply brings tangible improvements to the overall music performance: complex passages become easier to follow and dynamic shading becomes even more finely gradated and faster. As a result music becomes more involving and satisfying. This upgrade path is convenient and flexible because most of our supplies will power a varied selection of components.
The ultra-low noise 555 PS was originally designed to power the CD555 CD player but is also backwards- compatible with the CDS3 and CDX2 players. It can further be used to enhance the performance of the Naim HDX hard disk player and Naim DAC.
Within the supply’s low resonance case with isolating feet there is a transformer that is 40 per cent larger than that in the XPS with five secondary windings outputting seven regulated power supplies including a separate one for the CD555 clock circuitry. The 555 PS also has separate dedicated analogue and digital output sockets (Burndy) to minimise high frequency noise modulation of the analogue supplies.
