Anybody got the powerline on 300dr and is it worth going for.?
Yes, yes. Without a doubt.
Can you borrow one from a dealer to demo?
Was an improvement on both 272 and 250DR. Imagine 300 would benefit in same way!
Not sure but I could asked.
I borrowed a dealer’s one to try on my Nova - very worthwhile so bought it and a few more.
The Powerline is a good addition to any component. Source first. Preamp. Power. Do them all. The benefit is readily perceptible. The benefit is cumulative throughout your system.
Just do it.
Powerlines are beneficial on all my newer Naim components. My olive supercap was not effected however.
Same benefits with PL on other brands?
It sound good with Uniti Nova?
One hopefully arrives this afternoon for audition on my Nova
I found it a very worthwhile upgrade sonically, and others have made similar comments.
Bear in mind I currently use the Nova, which is destined to be standalone at some point, as a streaming source into NAC 282/active SBL setup. I can’t remember at this stage if I used/tested a Powerline in isolation originally with the Nova alone, or used it with Nova/olive NAP 250 or even with the active setup - even if the last extreme example then it significantly improved analogue out sound quality.
I have PowerLines on my 300PS DR, XPS DR and SCDR. I just bought a second SCDR, but plan to use a AVOptions TibiaPlus12 power cord for it. Maybe I will shift it around among the four PSUs to see if I notice a difference. I don’t know that I will buy a fourth PL. Maybe if one comes up secondhand at a good price.
Since we are talking about the Naim Powerline, I’m wondering how much benefit I can gain by using one for my nDAC? I currently have one already on my XPS-DR.
Hopefully I’ll beat you to it! lol
I’m not in a rush. I’ve already spent way more money than I intended to. The SCDR was an unplanned purchase but an opportunity came up for a good one with the cables I need.
Ditto, no rush for me as well. I have a TibiaPlus as well but I’ve been curious lately to see if a Powerline would make a difference on the nDAC without breaking the bank. I’m still amazed at the XPS DR!
Yep. Certainly worth trying.
Plugged it in about twenty minutes ago, and very worthwhile
Interesting isn’t it! Is your Nova a second ‘standalone’ system?
