Here is a press release:
Naim Launches FlatCap 2x
FlatCap 2x replaces FlatCap 2 power supply
After five years of improving the performance of Naim amplifiers and CD players the FlatCap 2 has been replaced by the improved FlatCap 2x. There is no increase in price. The improvements to sound quality are subtle but significant: dynamics are more even across the audio band, bass lines are more easily differentiated and the system noise floor is reduced. The Naim FlatCap is an ultra low noise external power supply delivering twice 24 Volts DC to Naim Preamplifiers, Phono Preamplifiers and CD Players. It is the only Naim power supply that can simultaneously power two products. Physical changes are; a Fraim friendly stiffer thicker chassis, a new redesigned transformer with a higher VA rating, lower impedance and higher peak current capability. Heatsinks are also significantly larger. Performance improvements over the FlatCap 2 are even more obvious when powering a pre-amplifier and CD player from the FlatCap 2x at the same time. The FlatCap 2x will be available from February 2005.The importance of power supplies has been close to the heart of Naim philosophy for over twenty years. Although certain Naim power amplifiers provide a very adequate power supply to the partnering pre-amplifier, the use of a separate Naim ultra-low noise power supply brings substantially improved musicality to the whole system. Simply being separate from the amplifiers ensures correct earthing and hum-free operation, whilst the large toroidal transformer and generous high quality smoothing capacitors provide exceptional dynamic stability. Each of the power outputs utilise specially selected regulators for optimum performance. The FlatCap 2x can be used to power all of the Naim phono stages, active crossovers and pre-amplifiers except the NAC 552 and NAC 252. The anti-vibration, resonance-controlling feet compliment the elegant new anti-magnetic chassis to protect the sensitive internal components from resonance and microphonic vibration.
