Two 24V power outputs

Naim Hicap DR , so where is the second output ?

On the back?
This guide explains how it can be used

It’s not the initial wiring I have a problem with, it just states that it has two 24V outputs and I can only see one

Socket 4 has 2x24v outputs, which you would use eg with a 282,

No worries , that’s cleared that up. I just assumed that there would be two power outputs to power two components that’s all. Thank you for your help


Cheers rob, it gets confusing lol


The Hicap is a dual rail supply so outputs 2 x 24V DC via the DIN5 socket. However, it can only power one item at any one time.

Is there any difference when connecting to power amp (250DR in my case) between 1,2,3 sockets?

On a current Hicap, no, they are all stereo in/outs. Only thing is that it’s probably good practice to minimise signal path lengths, so usually best to connect to the nearest in/out socket to the DIN5.

On early Hicaps (up to '93), Socket 3 had a single rail 24V DC output on it, so best avoid that one when connecting to take signal to a power amp.

an Hicap CB:

  • Socket 3: 1x24V
  • Socket 4: 2x24V

I didn’t pay attention to that, my NAXO was powered by Socket4, and the other socket 3 was plugged to my 52. Based on your remark I used now the socket2 to the 52 instead of socket3.
