Nigel, I and a couple of friends (J.N. and Dark Bear) have found it beneficial to place the NAP500 one single level up from the base level rather than having it sitting on the base level. Is this something you have tried at all?
Hi Michael, the honest answer is no I haven't tried lifting the 500 head unit. Can I ask what you have below your 500? Is it a spare tier or do you have a black box there?
It is something I could consider, the question is going to be the cable dressing issue, the boxes are where they are now to get the best cable dressing.
I have my Linn Radikal under my 500 on the base level, I believe John has his 555PS under his. (John correct me if I am wrong).
So we have from top to bottom, left: CD555, 555PS-DR, NDX, 555PS-DR, centre: 552, 500-DR, Radikal, right: LP12, empty, 500PS, 552PS-DR with a Super Lumina full loom into my NBLs.
Interesting Michael, you have the spare tier below the LP12 and not the CD555, also how do you find the cable dressing with the 555 PSU directly under the head units, can you get a decent hang on the Burndies?
Nigel, at present both my 555PS supplies are connected to my CD555 and the burndies hang fine neither touching the floor. If and when I replace the NDX, which is at present self powered, with the ND555 I shall most likely go back to running the CD555 of one supply and use the other to power the ND555. If the ND555 proves to be substantially better running of two supplies, I have that option.
