I have just found the following in the XS2 owner's manual:
"The link plug should be removed only in the following circumstances:
• A power supply upgrade is to be used.
• An alternative preamplifier is to be used with the Nait XS 2 power amplifier.
• An alternative power amplifier is to be used with the Nait XS 2 preamplifier.
Note: When an external preamplifier is connected to the Nait XS 2 power-amp in socket, a fault will initially be indicated by the Nait XS 2 mute button flashing. To clear the fault, press and hold the flashing mute button. This will un-mute the amplifier and turn off the display and volume indicator."
Iconoclast, you will also need a SNAIC4 if you are interested in using your XS2 as a halfway house, on the way to, say, a 202/ 200.
Have you tried it?
As I've already written, I've done it with my NAIT XS and a different Naim pre, and have no reason to doubt Naim's words on the XS2.
But I have just seen Iconoclast's response to Seakayaker, so there doesn't seem much point saying more. I mean, how many times can one say the same thing?. Oh wait a minute, this is the Naim forum :-)
