I am new to this forum, maybe a Naim Nait 2 owner could help me with this problem.
My speakers recently made a very loud pop when I switched on the power outlet, which my amp is connected to. Weird thing was that my amp was Off. The pop was many times louder than the usual pops that occur after powering up the amp. I switched the amp on afterwards, and everything seemed to sound normal though. The amp and wall socket was turned off for 4 days prior to this event.
I have -20db attenuators connected, the volume knob was left at the 8’oclock position. The pop was way louder to what I normally hear at that knob position. See my gear list below. I know I shouldn’t use surge protectors but it was definitely frightening to hear loud sounds through a amp that wasn’t even turned on . Furthermore, all electrolytic and tantalum caps were replaced and serviced by Naim recently. Anybody have any idea about this?
