Although certain Naim amplifiers provide a very adequate power supply to the partnering pre-amplifier, the use of a separate Naim ultra-low noise power supply brings substantially improved musicality to the whole system. Simply being separate from the amplifiers ensures correct earthing and hum-free operation, while the large toroidal transformer and generous high quality smoothing capacitors provide exceptional dynamic stability.
Each of the power outputs use specially selected regulators for optimum performance. The Hi-Cap can be used to power all of the Naim phono stages, active crossovers and pre-amplifiers except the NAC 552 and NAC 252; in the case of the NAC 282 pre-amplifier a second Hi-Cap may be used, bringing further improvements.
The addition of anti-vibration, resonance-controlling feet compliment the elegant new cast and extruded anti-magnetic chassis to protect the sensitive internal components from resonance and microphonic vibration.
The audible benefits from adding a Hi-Cap are fundamental to the music: improving timing, dynamic range, clarity and order. Particularly complex music becomes both easier to understand and listen to. Inclusion of a Hi-Cap offers the additional benefit of allowing the pre-amplifier to be left switched on constantly, independently of the power amplifier, keeping the unit's complex circuitry fully stabilised at all times.

The new Naim Hi-Cap sets free the musicality and dynamic range of a hi-fi system, making an incredibly effective upgrade to a pre-amplifier, power amplifier combination.
