The XP5 XS evolved to partner the ND5 XS network player. Its slimline XS Series enclosure, solidly constructed from aluminium extrusions and a brushed and anodised front panel, makes it a fine visual match for its partner. However, as with Naim’s other power supplies, it can also be used to upgrade other components in the Naim Audio range. Its low-capacitance ceramic heat sinks, large smoothing capacitors and 250VA transformer give it the performance to match its looks.
- 250VA transformer with tantalum output capacitors, low capacitance ceramic heat sinks and large smoothing capacitors
- Supplied with Burndy interconnect
- Brushed, black-anodised aluminum chassis
Technology & Craft
The XP5 XS features the “slimline” XS style enclosure constructed from aluminium extrusions and high pressure die-castings with a fine brushed anodised front panel finish. Internally the XP5 XS incorporates a massive 250VA transformer, tantalum output capacitors, low capacitance ceramic heat sinks and large smoothing capacitors. As with all Naim Audio external power supplies, component and PCB layout is configured specifically to maximise supply stability and absolutely minimise electronic noise. The XP5 XS is hand wired and fitted with sockets selected and engineered to help minimise microphony.
