Cheaper Snaic Alternative

Finally after weeks of should I or shouldnt I. I have took the plunge and purchased a Naim Hicap DR for use with my Nait XS2 integrated.

This has used up a nice chunk of my current funds and have now realised I also need the 4 pin Din cable.
Does this absolutely have to be the naim Snaic 4 Pin or are there cheaper alternatives?.

An alternative would just be short term with the idea of eventually purchasing a cable of the naim variety. When funds and my wife recover.

Second hand for about 50 gbp.

Cant find any at the moment second hand.

Try the pink place.

Please note forum rules with regard to discussion of unauthorised modifications to Naim equipment (which includes Fake SNAICs).

If you can’t afford a new SNAIC then look for secondhand. Be careful not to buy a fake SNAIC - at best performance will not be as Naim intended and at worst they may damage your equipment.

Thanks Richard.
I would prefer the real thing, so will hold out for a ex demo/used snaic.

Maybe try someone like TomTom?


Persevere… :slightly_smiling_face:

TomTom is a good shout TBC. Any Naim dealer offering classic and above kit (check Naim website) are likely to be able to help. It’s a small and robust enough item to post cheaply, so any dealer Nationwide is a possible source for you.

ebay for ÂŁ26, at the moment.

oh just checked… that’s not NAIM brand.

Thanks for trying.

There is a grey 4 pin snaic.
Is there a difference between the grey and the black, soundwise?

I can still see a genuine SNAIC4 available at a decent price. Worth checking the usual places…

Can only find the older grey snaic?

The black SNAIC is better sounding.

Very fishy. I think we’re looking in different places…
I’m going to stop looking at the classifieds as this can rapidly lead into temptation and I really don’t need a pair of Impulse H2 speakers :thinking:


Round about 100 for a pre loved black snaic

Got a cable ordered for now. Going to wait for the right deal to come along on an ex demo/Pre Owned Snaic 4

Seems a bit high…? I bought a used Black SNAIC-4, this year, for around GB£65-00, all inc.
