I'm having the same problem. The US does not see the 412+, but my laptop and other computers in the house do, i.e. I can copy files, see the shared folders, etc. Are there any special settings required by the US to see the 412+? I've created new shared folders and have music server running. I've even created a shared folder called Naim Music Store, but nothing worked. I don't think the 412+ sees the US because I don't see it in the UPnP device list. I assume I should see it there. I'm on a...

You need to create a shared folder in the 412 - and make sure it has no access restrictions, meaning "guest" shall have read/write priviliges - and no password. You need to create one shared folder for the Music Store - the name can be anything. My share folder is named NaimAudio in the DS412+. My DS412+ has the network name "DiskStation", so in the US you create a "Music Store" by typing the address "\\DiskStation\NaimAudio" in the web-interface. Make sure to keep the user name field clean,...

Hi, I'm using an Ars Sonum Filarmonia SE tube integrated, Merlin VSM-MMM speakers, Palmer turntable, Superline, Hicap DR and the UnitiServe. For a DAC I'm using a Weiss DAC202. I haven't really been able to listen to it much yet. The analog setup sounds wonderful and that gets most of my listening time. I'm still thinking about an NDS. I might get an NCSE integrated to replace the Ars Sonum, but not sure yet. I had one in the system for awhile and it sounded absolutely beautiful. I had never...

Re: Backup of HDX, complete

Bart ·
I am not fully familiar with the 2-drive HDX. BUT, have you updated the software to version 1.7? If so, it certainly is possible to backup to a folder on a nas on your network. The reference manual tells you how to set up a backup folder. No, I am pretty sure that it's NOT possible to backup to a directly connected external hard drive.

Chrissu - I gave up at 192.168.1.70. Glad I did as it turns out the address is 192.168.1.248! Had a quick try putting that IP into my iMac browser (Safari) but didn't come up with anything - will spend more time on it tonight. one thing that does occur to me, the Naim SetIP Tool doesn't provide a facility to enter a specific IP to make the initial connection, it simply scans looking for a server and allows you to change the address once connected. Not sure this is taking me anywhere.

Hi, If the UnitiServe has been set to a fixed IP address for a NaimNet setup then it will need reconfiguring using the NaimNet / NetStreams software which only runs on a Windows PC ... randomly poking around looking for it will probably not result in anything other than frustration. It's a great shame that the dealer sending out this unit didn't reset it to DHCP before it was sent out. If you have access to a Windows PC then I can reset the unit to DHCP remotely using the NaimNet /...

Thanks for the contribution Phil, appreciate it. It would require co-ordination of me having my office laptop at home at a time you are able to log in to my network.

I've brought my office laptop home and downloaded the Naim IP Tool on it and have directly plugged the ethernet cable from the US into the laptop. It can't see it. Tried re-booting the US but still nothing. If the IP has been set or if it is on a 'local; setting to ignore the internet to just play cd's, do I try another means of connection - e.g. usb? How do I make a US 'discoverable'? Otherwise I'm just taking this loan US back to the dealer.

I think you need to leave the US on your network then try to find it with the laptop. Workgroups? I thought that was a Windows thing.

Thanks Chrissu Workgroups does = Windows, but then Naim appear to like Windows rather than Apple - WAV is the native file format not AIFF and the desk top client / IP tool said to give the best range of tools is for Windows - probably half the problem.

Chrissu, OK plug your laptop and uS into your router switch.. Let the laptop gets its IP address from your router (DHCP). Ensure when the US is plugged into your router switch port, the LED is lights on the router switch port to the US. now run the Naim tool. It should use a low level device discovery protocol that doesn't need IP addresses to work. Hopefully once the tool is finds your US you can resolve. Set to DHCP. Really bad idea not using DHCP on clients if that's the course. Simon

Btw I skimmed the US manual, and didn't see the IP set tool mentioned.. So not sure it's compatible, others will confirm.. might need a factory reset, as DHCP is the default mode of operation.

Thanks for the replies Simon. I now have both the US and Windows laptop connected by ethernet cables directly into the Apple AirPort Extreme. On my iPhone I'm running Net Analyzer - an app that Phil from Naim recommended on another thread. The app identifies the laptop but not the US. I've tried re-booting the US but to no avail. TBH I'm not sure what name the US would show - I have a couple of Unknown's but one has Hewlett Packard against it and the other Apple so I'm guessing its not...

I would call your dealer to see what they have done to your borrowed US. I am not sure the Net Analyzer will work - really that is only a consumer tool to show device responsiveness and the responsiveness of certain application services once correctly setup. So - assuming no fault anywhere - you need to get the US into working as DHCP - not being that familiar with the US and reading the manual - that should be default operation or requires a device reset. Apparently if the device doesn't...

Is your Airport Extreme also your DHCP server? Mine isn't, it's connected to an ISP provided box which does that. If so, try connecting the Unitiserve to your ISP modem/router. You might be able to see it there, and set an IP address in its settings menu if necessary.

Latest update is the branch dealer who supplied the US to my local branch have confirmed they set a fixed IP address as the US had previously been used in a NaimNet configuration and then didn't reset it to DHCP. So now I know the problem I need to get at it somehow. I've tried connecting both directly to my Sky Hub as Chrissu suggested but still can't see it as the IP range the Sky Hub is looking at appears to be the same as my Apple AirPort Extreme - i.e. 192,168.0.xxx rather than...

Re: Connecting a Unitiserve-SSD to an Apple network

Do you know which device is acting as DHCP server for your network. My understanding is that it's best to let your Sky router do that rather than the AE. If you now know the Unitiserve IP address, type that into a browser (Mac or PC) and you should see the DTC. In Settings > System Status you'll be able to see all the device's network settings (DHCP status, MAC address, etc.) If you look in UPnP settings, there is a 'reset to defaults' option, but I'm fairly sure this will not affect the...

Re: Connecting a Unitiserve-SSD to an Apple network

Not QUITE right. The uServe runs a version of Windows, and the workgroup name that the uServe wants is naim, not the standard default of home. Whether you're accessing the uServe from a Mac, or a PC, you need to take account of this. The uServe is perfectly happy connecting to Macs as well as PC's. But it won't be happy with either until the workgroup name is set to naim, as far as I understand (and experienced when I first set mine up ~ 4 years ago).

Hungry halibut - That sounds like the Network Analyser app which I have, but as someone else has said these apps only tell you what devices are actually connected and therein lies the problem - it's not connected. Chrissu - I don't know the full IP address I'm waiting for the branch to text me but a search on 192.168.1 suggested thats a range generally used by Linksys routers - I guess I could try increasing he last digit by 1 each time...192.168.1.1, 192.168.1.2

Re: Is this normal on Supernait 2?

Stoik ·
If I recall correctly, the crosstalk on inputs is due to a serial connection for the ground tap on all inputs on all integrateds and slimline preamp (higher end preamps have parallel circuits). So only the signal tap is switched, and only a fainth leakage well bellow human hearing treshold could go through during normal operation (and this means not putting the volume knob at zero attenuation). The humming comes from the capacitive filtering that is almost directly supplying power to the...

Humming (lauder than usaual) on empty inputs is actually normal. Just for fun switch every source off and leave SN2 on - you may hear a loud humming. Once you switch your Naim CD on it will be gone. By the way - why two CD players?

Re: Is this normal on Supernait 2?

Hungryhalibut ·
You really should not be getting the humming. I suspect that it's an earth loop and that if you disconnect the Marantz and just leave the CD5si connected it will go away. If it is an earth loop, you need to sort it out. If you are playing a cd into the cd input and then switch to (say) the aux input and turn the volume right up, you will hear the cd very faintly. This, as others have said, is crosstalk, and it's perfectly normal. Listening at 3 o'clock, on the other hand, is not normal. I'm...

From my experience all NAIMs work better if a power supply: Has a dedicated earth Is a separate, dedicated audio circuit There are various thoughts on using RFI / surge protecrion strips for powering NAIM. It does degrade the sound quality a bit, but may be an inevitable choice for reducing mains hums. A second advantage is a surge protection - it's better to 'kill' a power strip than yoru beloved NAIM

The Focal Aria 936 speakers are rated up to 300 watts so well matched for a SN, unless of course the amp was clipping when the volume was at 75% , which is what I suspect was happening.

So to sum up: 1) Volume was at Thor's Hammer levels; 2) This isn't recommended, as 3) Crosstalk, hum, clipping, and tinnitus can result; 4) Hopefully, this system is sited in an aircraft hangar or the Doge's Palace; and 5) Note to self: when buying a s/h amp, remember to ask the seller if they crank the volume to 75%

The volume dial on my SN2 once got to between 1 and 2 o'clock, but only because the volume button on my universal remote got stuck. Once I had charged across the room and taken manual control of the situation, I expected to turn around and discover the next challenge would be removing the Mission 752 drive units now firmly embedded in the sofa. Actually, they didn't seem to care. They were 91Db sensitivity if I remember rightly, and I can confirm that things were getting pretty loud there...

Indeed - I thought I can handle loud music, after more than 20 years of playing in a band, standing next to a drummer every week. But 75% of a SuperNait2 ??? The acoustic pressure must have been enormous. Mine never goes above 10-11 o'clock. Usual playing volume is around 9.

By 75% do you mean above 12 o'clock on the dial? You shouldn't exceed this on a Naim amp on a line input. What speakers are you running? Must be monstrously inefficient or you are incredibly hard of hearing.

That would have been loud! A slight hum is not uncommon at high volumes. Particularly if there are nearby radio transmitters. I would avoid turning it up that loud in future. Also, upping your source may improve things as a cd5si is a bit below the recommended option on a SN2. Try a CDX2 or NDX streamer instead.

I have had my SN2 as high as 3 o'clock but only once or twice and not for long - driving Focal 926s it was damned damned loud but I didn't have any buzzing at all.
