This phono stage was purchased new in November 2008 and is still in flawless condition (completely unmarked and unscratched and rated 8/10 only for the sake of conservativeness) and full working order.
The SuperLine is Naim's reference phono stage,replacing their Prefix stage in 2008 and offering an elite level of vinyl replay comparable with that available from a handful of legendary stages such as the Art Audio Vinyl One. Fans of the Naim sound will find this unit a fantastic upgrade to their vinyl playing systems.
It must be powered externally from either a Naim integrated amplifier or preamplifier or (ideally) by one of their stand alone power supplies (HiCap or SuperCap). I used it in one of the former configurations and found that it offered an exemplary level of performance (at least equal to the Art Audio Vinyl One, based on an A-B comparison I once carried out at home). Buyers can choose to use this unit initially in partnership with a Naim preamp or integrated amp (using the included SNAIC interconnect cable) and upgrade later to a standalone power supply once finances allow.
A variety of resistance and capacitance loading options is available in the form of loading plugs that can be easily swapped by the user to tailor the sound to suit personal preferences. In addition to the seven plugs supplied by Naim as standard, this unit will come with a 453 ohm plug (manufactured by Naim USA) felt by many on the Naim forum to be the ideal partner for Dynavector cartridges. A variety of high performance "Z plugs" is also available from Naim dealers and offer additional performance.
Users can choose to use either BNC connectors (preferred by Naim) or the more standard RCA connectors.
