Thanks both - that's useful info. So did the Nait 2 come in a CD only version which ditched the phono input completely ?
Mike - yes. I was trying to avoid attenuated cables and found my Nait 1 works very well driven from the output of my Sony ZX2 or with my Devialet in DAC mode with it's output configured to 1v max which gives a decent range on the volume control. The new Chord Qutest with it's configurable output looks like it would make a good partner for an early Nait. I was just curious as to whether the Nait 2 addressed this as CD was become prevalent later in its lifetime, hence the question.
James, yes it did have a CD only version, CD connects into the RCA's so phono is out. I have the spec sheet & photo on a .pdf.
I too tried to avoid attenuated cables as I know how they are made, also not happy with the RCA plugin attenuators but whatever a DIN version as required for Nait-2 was not available. But I needed something so went the DIY route - as I'm always inclined to do. Resisters with acknowledged good sound quality that can fit 4 plus the wires inside a DIN are thin on the ground, so I built an inline L-Pad using Welwyn RC55y (0.250w) resistors.
I drive the Nait-2 from my Supernait 'Record/Tape' buffered output, via a wall into the dining room. Switching between NDX, NAT-05 or TV (F1 commentary during Sunday lunch, most important) With 15dB attenuation its loud at about 9 0'clock on the dial, diner party levels at 8 o'clock.
