Naim Nait 2 possible issue?

I am hearing a low level hum through my speakers with my Nait 2 switched on. I can only hear it with my ear up close to the woofer, not from a distance.

Is it normal to be hearing this with this amp.

Connected to a cd3.5 via the grey din.

Thanks.

My first check would be if to check that the signal leads are not touching or nearby power leads.

Everything is separated off.

Its not normal. Is the noise still there when you disconnect the cd?

Yes.

I also have a Nait 1 here & a Nait 3. The Nait 1 is exactly the same hum but with the 3 there is no hum.

I will say this though, having just connected all 3, hum or no hum, the 2 is on a completely different level. The 1 is great, the 3 is not so great, the 2 is mind blowing, by comparison.

It sounds quite normal - my Nait 1 (serviced by Naim in 2018) has a very low level buzz with an ear very close to the speaker bass unit. The Nait 3 has a bit more room available to keep the very sensitive bits further away from the mains transformer.

This is what iā€™m hearing, nothing intrusive & seems to have zero effect on SQ.
