What we Say:

The Naim Audio XPS DR is the top Naim power supply in the Classic range. The Naim  philosophy is   to spend the money on things that give the best performance. It is this approach that gives the Naim XPS DR such a high level of performance.

Inside the Naim Audio XPS DR power supply there is a lot going on. Naim  use a massive toroidal transformer which is more in line with what you expect in a large power amplifier.

The transformer has multiple windings that split the supply to feed the six separate DR regulators. These feed  separate sections of the source component that the XPS is powering. It will work with the NDX2, NDS, NDX and NAC-N 272. No other company takes such an approach to power supply design.

This attention to detail is what gives the Naim range such a distinctive dynamic sound. The Naim XPS DR is the top model in the Naim Classic power supply range.

All Naim products are hand made in their facility in Salisbury.

Overview

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 NDSNDX and ND5 XS network players and HDXhard-disk player/server. Its large toroidal transformer features six separately regulated, low-noise outputs 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.

A technical white paper on the Naim Audio Discrete Regulator technology is available here.

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. Please consult your Naim Audio retailer if you are unsure of compatibility.
