Why run power through the SNAIC 4 to 4 pin DIN from preamp to power amp?
Posted by: JimDog on 28 December 2018
Why does Naim run power from the power amp to a preamp through the same cable as the audio signal? Doesn't that pollute the audio signal with interference?
When power is needed for the preamp wouldn't it be better to run it through a separate cable?
And when power is not needed for the preamp - e.g. between my 272 and 150X - is it possible to switch off the power running through that SNAIC - or does this happen automatically?
If not, then why doesn't Naim (or someone else) make a version of this cable without power running through it?
