Does anyone know if the 4 pin out from the pre amplifier is locking or non locking

It is a conventional Naim locking DIN socket.

Are you assuming this or have you had a Unitilite.
I dont know the difference myself and wonder why some cable makers differentiate

You can see it’s a locking din socket. However that doesn’t stop you from using a non locking din plug. In fact for non power din connections it’s best to leave the collar unlocked.

I have a Unitilite, not in use but still here. It’s as Robert says.

Thank you for your help

Never knew that - what’s the reasoning? You learn something new here every day.

Naim have only used locking DIN sockets for quite a long time now, although their more expensive cables (HiLine, Super Lumina) have non-locking plugs by design.
Some cable manufacturers still offer the old latching plug as an option for people with vintage Naim or other gear.

Decoupling. The internal boards are sometimes loose by design (supernait, stageline for example), so don’t lock the interconnects as this makes a rigid connection. Keep it loose. Except where power is involved ie hicap / snaic connections.
