Naim Mods

Recommended Posts

Firefox added the Elna Cerafine caps and the TKD volume pot (S$50 for the pot - ouch). You'll also notice the Cardas Rodium plated RCAs ;-) so now Barradio can swap interconnects to his heart's content (watch the wallet Barradio). I also have a pic of the happy tooper but I think Barradio wouldn't want it posted.

 

We had some Solen fast caps as well but in this application the Solens actually slowed the Naim down and sounded muffled. Goes to show that different designs react differently to the same componet change. Like we didn't know that huh?

 

Enjoy the pictures.

Hey those part are not mine u know. Ask Barradio.

 

Leng, for the life of me I don't know what milky sounding means. I have read the so called explanation and still am without a clue as to what when on when the Naim was described as milky sounding. Anyway add a dash a Kaluha and things will improve I'm sure. lol.gif

Mat, the original cable came with the naim is DIN male not the BNC's female sockets.

 

The amp is still in the bruning stage and the first listening impression after the mod no more "milky" sound. laugh.gif

 

Will post after 100hrs burn-in. tongue.gif

Actually I would prefer mine with a dash of Bailey and a scope of ice cream.

 

Sorry about the OT.

N@Z,

 

What credibility would I or firefox have in a review? I rather have the owners post reviews as 1) They had the greatest amt of exposure to the equipment before any modification. 2) Will have the greatest amt of exposure to the quipment after the mods.

 

Needless to say my own mods will have a short write-up. I'm currently waiting for parts to op-amp roll the Rotel. As you can tell, it's already filled with Black Gates innocent.gif right lengcm?

Yah Yah... got your hingt! I know the 1.1 has no black gates...... alrite....

 

Seems like the modding is getting personal...

 

Anyway, hope to listen to Barradio new Naim one day... Wonder if it is milky sounding, with a dash or bailey or Kaluha biggrin.gif

Whoa, hold on... I didn't say review, just impressions. After all, the mods carried out would have been pointless if it didn't yield any results other than just wanting to change the components for the sake of change. Having said that I'd appreciate any comments from Barradio should he decide to post any.
