What’s best? Power my Superline from a Hicap2 or from a 252/Supercap2? What’s the forum wisdom? Thanks.
I have used it powered from both HiCap (non DR) and 252. 252 is better, to my ears. In fact, more than happy with it.
I’ve heard that there is a further very significant improvement from Supercap DR though. That will likely be my next upgrade.
That’s good to know. Hmm, maybe i will look to mitigate some of the cost of another Supercap with the Hicap Is this even worthwhile, running the Superline off it’s own dedicated Supercap? How many of the power feeds would the Superline utilise?
All of them I think, it uses the same Burndy as a Snaxo. I tried a hicap on mine when I put a supercap on the 282, still preferred AUX2 so the hicap went back in its box. When I replaced the 282 this freed up the supercap.Without the correct Burndy for a couple of weeks I tried the supercap via a Snaic but the supply from the 552 was preferable until the Burndy arrived, that changed thing a bit. If I was doing it again I’d probably use the supercap on the superline and power the 282 from the hicap.
I think it’s a case of trying each option and make your own mind up, as I found the opposite to Dynaudio1.
I found HiCapDR better than HiCap2 which was in turn better than the Superline straight into the 252.
However I was talking to a fellow Naim user at my dealers a couple of weeks back and he said putting a Supercap on the Superline gave a massive increase in performance so if you can afford it try that option too.
