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?

This might have been asked before but I can't find a definitive answer.  Other than the agent, are there any recommendations for someone who can recap a CB series ?

At the risk of losing my Naim dealership... go listen to the Lumin D2.

Seems a waste of using a good streamer to play MP3

Don't think so. The front-panel USB port is for USB Flash with structured content, not streams. RTM

Sounds like the whole idea of high fidelity escapes some people.

Not all music made of high fidelity. There is a thing called musical.
