I have the opportunity to offer from a friend in the form of:
NAC-112X, NAP-150X, and Flatcap 2X
I currently use NAC-62 and NAP-140 chrome bumpers and I am very satisfied with them.
But I want to try Naim Classic.
What I want to ask is, by buying the NAC-112X / NAP-150X / Flatcap 2X, can the Flatcap 2X be used to supply the power of the NAC-62 and NAC-112X as well as both? At first I wanted to buy a Hicap chrome bumper for my NAC-62 / NAP-140, but I didn’t get it yet.
How is the connection of if the NAC-62 / NAP-140 and NAC-112X / NAP-150X / Flatcap 2X systems are combined, in the sense that each is independently mounted with its own speaker pair, but Flatcap 2X can supply both NAC-62 and NAC-112X
yes, I have checked the manual, but the manual only explains the relationship between Flatcap 2x to 112x. I saw in the manual describing the 112x, 150x and flatcap 2x links in their relationship because they are in the same output period.
While the NAC-62 and NAP-140 in different output years.
If you look at the schematic image above, explaining the relationship between Flatcap 2x to 112x and Flatcap 2x to the NAP-140, how is the connection to the NAP-150x and to the NAC-62?
Connect a 5 pin snaic from the 24v flatcap socket to the preamp.
Connect a 4 pin snaic from the output socket on the flatcap to the power amp.
You use the 2 “farthest to the left” sockets on the flatcap.
There’s no other way to simplify it.
can I combine 2 preamps and 2 power amps at the same time while adhering to the 5 pin DIN to Pre amp (62,112X) and 4 pin DIN to Power Amp (140,150X) rules
of course I will turn on each system separately and will not be simultaneously, but I combine at the same time
Notwithstanding recommendations above. As I understand it, and I really do not have first hand experience of separate pre/power, power and signal have to be handled by an associated pair of connectors. You should not just use one of the pair for power only, as I think the OP is suggesting in one of the pics
The first connector (e.g. socket 1) of the associated connector pair takes power from the PSU to the connected box and also receives the connected box’s signal output. The second connector of the pair on the PSU (e.g. socket 2) then takes signal to whatever you’re wanting to take the output from the box you’re powering, to.
The 2X had two “sets” of these connectors, the first having one signal in, 3 signal outs (allowing routing of the single source on socket 1, to 3 destinations), the second set just having a single signal out (allowing routing of its source on socket 5 to a single destination)
I think the line the OP has from the NAC62 to the 2X (socket 5) will be taking signal output (hm, attenuated by the volume pot… maybe that’s the issue with using the 2X here, as it was intended for a line level output of a CD player?) to the 2X, but that output will not find its way to socket 2 or socket 3 as the diagram “hopefully” depicts.
But, I really should double caveat this!!! Maybe even triple caveat it X)
…and reading back up the thread, manual seems clear the second set of connectors only listed for source components, not powering a preamp
