Tweeter hiss

Posted by: jsaudio on 30 December 2018

Is it normal hear a hiss from the tweeters and to a lesser extent midrange driver when there is nothing playing but everything is on including the amp. Naturally it is gone when the amp is off ?

Yes, perfectly normal with Naim amps.

Sounds normal to me.  Plenty about this on the forum if you do a search. If no music is playing I can start to hear a gentle hiss if I get within about 5 feet of the speakers but it's hardly noticeable from my usual listening position. That's with NACA5 and Naim SL2s.  Different speaker cabling and speakers with a tipped-up top end or very high sensitivity can exacerbate any sense of a hiss when no music is playing.

Thanks for the replies. Wanted to be sure. Sorry for not doing a search first.
