NAC102 upgrade

Good evening everyone. I had a good look for this but couldn’t see that it had been addressed before. However, I am very new here so if I’ve missed an obvious answer please point me towards it.
I own a fairly old NAC102 NAP180 system. I’m perfectly happy with it (other than when I drop the remote and buttons scatter everywhere!) but wondered if a better power supply for the preamp would be worthwhile?
I’d rather not spend huge sums changing everything if this would be better vfm.
Over to you.
Thank you.

First you should get a Napsc, and then get a Hicap. That’s it really.

You need a napsc and a hicap.

I would also consider a better preamp. An 82 would be nice, even just powered from the 180, then add a Hicap later if you want to take it further.


I’ve had my 102, NAPSC, HiCap and 180 since the 90s. I’ve heard some extremely expensive Naim systems, and I still have those boxes.

Yes, definitely treat the pre to a NAPSC and HiCap, and keep all serviced as recommended.
