I note from the manual from my SN3 the following statement “however, a wide range of speaker cable types can
be used without risk of damage to the amplifier.”
" “ 1.2 Loudspeaker Cables
Loudspeaker cables are vitally important. They should
each be at least 3.5 metres long and of equal length. The
recommended maximum is normally 20 metres although
longer cables may be viable with some Naim amplifiers.
Some Naim amplifiers are designed only to work with Naim
loudspeaker cable and using alternatives may degrade the
performance or even damage the amplifier. Other Naim
amplifiers can be used with any high quality loudspeaker
cable although we recommend that Naim loudspeaker cable
is used. Naim loudspeaker cable is directional and should
be oriented so that the printed arrow points towards the
speakers. The Naim loudspeaker connectors supplied are
designed to comply with European safety legislation and
must be used.
Contact your local retailer or distributor for further advice
on loudspeaker cables and connector”.
I asked my local dealer as it tells me to above and his reply was:-
“As a dealer I can’t advise that you go against the manufacturer recommendations”
Which is as clear as mud on the matter!!!
Are there any type of loudspeaker cables that should definitely not be used with the SN3?
