I never had any issue when using the NDX.

Try writing to Naim. They are very helpful and they response pretty quickly.

I had not used NDX for a few years so I can't really help. I know a few NDX users from this forum, maybe they can comment soon.

Ex ndx user here. Forget about wifi and connect direct lan cable. The wifi is pretty hopeless.

Maybe get a cheap UTP ethernet cable. It's unshielded. It comes free most of the time or will cost less than $2-3. This should be a good bet.

You can proper certified Tyco or telegartner cat6a shielded SFTP cables for less than $10 new. No need to resort to exotics.

Yeah I'll most probably not go for exotics. I'm more of a music lover than an audiophile, lucky me! ;D

Question for Naim users here, any recommendations for power cords and interconnects for a Naim Nait XS?

I understand that the power cord that came with the Naim is the recommended one, but when I bought it, it didn't come with the power cord. Any suitable alternative?

For interconnect, should I use a DIN-to-RCA or RCA-to-RCA?

My first Naim, and seems everything is so different.  :)

(1) Just use their cheapest standard Naim power cord. It should come "free" btw.

(2) DIN-to-RCA. Should be even better if you can use purely DIN-to-DIN interconnects.

Thanks for the replies.
The Naim is 2nd hand, and the seller didn't provide the power cords. So unfortunately I have to find alternatives.

Noted on the DIN, will look for that. I saw recommendations on the AR Green Link, is that still recommended?
