THERE’S a tribe that roams across the swamplands on the fringes of the Hi-Fi kingdom, desperately looking for a way out of the labyrinth in which they’ve been trapped for decades. While their travails are of a serious nature, the rest of the audiophile community mirthfully refers to them as …the Damned In Naim hell. DIN issues, for short.
Well, in rides a knight on a shiny steed to the rescue – the Chord Company (the cable one, not electronics) has produced a survival guide for these Naim people. It comes in a free, downloadable six-page PDF package, and helps Naim users connect with the rest of the world.
“With thousands of Naim Audio devices in circulation around the world, Chord Company has produced an invaluable in-depth guide to DIN connectivity, to help Naim users get the best out of their investment.
“Chord Company DIN Connections provides helpful information on all aspects of DIN (Deutsches Institut für Normung) cabling, including a DIN model breakdown for all budgets, plus a guide to DIN history and upgrading.”
The guide has a comprehensive DIN “cable combinations” chart, plus a compatibility table, matching Naim equipment to a wide variety of Chord Company cable solutions and accessories. Users of legacy Quad equipment will also find this guide very useful.
“It includes details of further upgrades for Naim users, including our recently introduced Burndy power/signal interconnect cables, plus the new Chord Company Bridge, a high-quality British designed and engineered shorting plug, created to reduce high-frequency noise interference in equipment with unused power supply upgrade ports.”
