Friends, the stageline S in which Hicap socket should it be connected? Thank you very much.
The 5 way socket.
So I seem to understand that I can’t connect the stageline on the same HiCap to which the Nac 72 is connected na I have to buy another HiCap!!
Correct. A HiCap powers one item - only.
One Hicap to power a 72, a 2nd Hicap to power a Stageline.
Its all in the appropriate Naim manuals.
And if instead I want to insert in the system a pre phono of another brand how do I connect it?
Assuming the Phono Pre is powered, then to any line level input on the 72. So, not the Phono input.
Thank you so much IanRobert
Bye at soon
Here is an idea for you…
There is one situation, where it is possible to use an external phono stage, via a NAC72 phono input…
If you replace the internal phono card with NA326 straight through cards or alternatively just link wires, it becomes a regular “line level” input.

This allows you to continue to use the front panel “phono” switch position, to use a record player source into that input, with an external phono amp.
Hope that helps
Which is pretty much what I do with my Stageline/HiCap - 82/Supercap.
526 “straight-through” cards in the 82.
Stageline to HiCap Socket 4 via a standard SNAIC5.
HiCap Socket 3 to 82’s Phono BNCs via DIN4-BNC cable.
I already have this solution, I want to have a pre phono with separate power instead, and I prefer it to valves for a matter of spatiality.
