Naim Audio has a special place in British audio, thanks to it's founder and inspirational leader Julian Vereker, a hugely talented mechanical and electronic engineer with a passion for, amongst many things, music. Founded in 1973, Naim has always had a firm philosophy of music first, measurements second - each Naim product is extensively auditioned as part of the product development process to make sure that it delivers clear, emotional music making ability.

Naim products are designed to bring the closest facsimile of a live music event into your home listening environment, to give you maximum pleasure from your music collection. Many of the Naim products are evolutions of previous designs, incorporating sometimes quite small changes to the mechanical or electronic design - however, these incremental changes make a large overall improvement in the music performance of each product.

The Naim DC1 digital audio cable has been with Naim's digital audio components in mind, such as the Naim DAC, to act as a faithful carrier of the digital audio bit-stream from coaxial digital output socket to the matching DAC or Uniti product.

Available in 1.2m length, the DC1 transmits all of the high frequency harmonics of the digital SPDIF signal to ensure that there is little or no 'rounding' of the audio square waves passing along the cable - this is very important to preserve the original fidelity and accuracy of the digital signal. The 75 ohm impedance of this cable ensures reflections along the transmission line do not distort the original signal, and 100% of the signal is passed from the digital signal source (CD player, streaming device etc) to the digital to analogue converter, giving the ultimate in high end sound quality.

The DC-1 is factory terminated with any combination of BNC and RCA plugs.
