Hi there I am pretty confused about how i connect my Stageline to a HI CAPS and then to my Uniti 2.
I want to use the HICAPS to power the Stageline (and because there is only one DIN available for this - 5 pin Din on the Uniti2)
Which DIN plugs go where on the units ?
Thanks in anticipation of your help
As you say, normally you would power the Stageline via a SNAIC5 cable from the phono DIN socket, which also supplies power to the Stageline.
I’d suggest to use a Hicap to power the Stageline with the Uniti 2, use a DIN4 to 2xRCA cable from socket 3 of the Hicap to one of the RCA inputs (an1 - 3). The Stageline would be connected to Hicap socket 4 via a SNAIC5 cable.
Thanks James. You think this would be better than using a DIN4 to DIN5 between the HICAPS and the Uniti 2 ?
That 4-5 cable uses a DIN5 180 deg connector rather than the 240 deg version you’d need for the Uniti 2, so that unfortunately won’t work.
Have a look at the link below and you’ll see what I mean
Standard Naim Interconnects.
Interconnects carry only audio signals. Naim usually include a standard grey Interconnect in the box with sources. It is no after-thought, but rather a great sounding high performance cable that complements Naim equipment perfectly.

Thanks so much James for your expert help !
