At last it’s here. The Power-Line has been developed by Naim after hundreds of hours of research, experimentation and listening to determine the factors affecting the quality of mains leads
Naim looked at both the cable itself and the connectors, with the result that both the 13A plug and the IEC connector have floating pins and cable clamping, while the attention to detail extends to rounded ends to the set-screws used to clamp the cable to the pins, ensuring maximum tightness without the danger of cutting the cable.
The Power-Line mains plug features a thermo set resin case carrying floating pins that align for enhanced contact area. The stripped cable ends are secured by specially profiled clamp screws and the cable is both decoupled and clamped by an ingenious die-cast component that includes measures to suppress case eddy currents.
The Power-Line cable itself is custom manufactured with 4mm² cross section copper conductors, individual dielectric insulation chosen for its sound enhancing electrical properties, and a final rubber outer that provides both high levels of inherent mechanical damping, and the correct stiffness to aid dressing on installation.
Completing the Power-Line is an IEC inlet plug that continues many of the decoupling and electrical continuity themes of the mains plug. It features floating contacts, combined decoupling and clamping, double wiper contacts and case eddy current suppression.
The Power-Line brings gains in all areas of system performance with its influence increasing as it is used on each component in a system but our advice would be to start from back to front. It represents a striking and significant upgrade for all Naim hi-fi systems and pound for pound offers the best upgrade investment a Naim owner could make.
