As a new Naim dealer in summer 2013, we first encountered Naim NAC A5 speaker cable quite recently.

It is highly regarded by Naim audiophiles and recommended for use with Naim Audio systems, as it provides the perfect combination of electrical resistance, capacitance and inductance to get the most musically satisfying result from Naim products, be it a Nait 5Si, Naim Uniti Nova or even the mighty NAP 250 power amp.
We recently had a customer present this faulty Alchemist Forseti integrated amp for repair – I’d guess this dates from the 1990’s and has been well looked after. It’s a bit of a bruiser as you can see from the extensive heatsinking!

Unfortunately it developed a DC fault on the loudspeaker outputs and destroyed the customers speakers, so it’s now in the naughty corner awaiting surgery.

We just had to have a look inside this recently part exchanged Quad 909 power amplifier – a powerful beast, superbly constructed from the finest materials.
