I picked up a naim 122x, 150x and a fc2x. When the cap and 150 are both pugged in everything works. If I unplug the cap all 3 still come on. So do I need to run the 110 plug to to the cap, or can I use it just with the amp 110 plugged in. Thanks, Fc. Russell.
I’m not quite sure what you mean when you say “If I unplug the cap all 3 still come on. So do I need to run the 110 plug to to the cap, or can I use it just with the amp 110 plugged in” .
You should have the NAC122X connected to the Flatcap2x via SNAIC5 and the 150x connected to the Flatcap2x via SNAIC4. Both the Flatcap2x and NAP150x should have mains power.
It sounds like you may have the NAP150x connected instead directly to the NAC122x?
The 122 has din going to the 150. The fc has a din going to the 122. The 122 has no power source,it gets it from the amp and or fc
OK that’s incorrectly connected up and you should change it ASAP as it may well cause damage connected as it is right now. You should connect as per the manuals and as per my post above; SNAIC5 between NAC122x and Flatcap2x (banded end nearest the pre-amp) and then SNAIC4 between Flatcap2x and NAP150x (banded end nearest the Flatcap). The NAP150x should NOT be directly connected to the pre-amp when you are fully powering the pre-amp with a power supply.
I have the cap plugged in and I have the 150 plugged into the wall. So when I unplug the cap from the wall and I switch on the amp all 3 still power up. So do I need to keep the cap plugged into the wall also
You need to connect just as I have told you above and as shown in the manuals.
That’s better. Now cap and preamp powers up and I have to power the amp up separate…thanks a bunch. Fcrussell
