A very good question, a2! I was using all blacks. Here it is again with silvers between Linto and Exotik:

Currently the only thing I have that's Nait compatible is a sketchy looking thing that came with it:
I agree this probably tilts the playing field in Linn's favor. Furthermore I discovered last night that the retaining bolt for the Nait's transformer is completely loose and the transformer is flopping around. I think it's time to sort the cables and torques before any conclusions are made.
Interesting! That convinces me it's worth a punt. Trouble is it's apparently not available in the U.S. so I'll have to do some searching.Charlie1 wrote: ↑2019-04-19 08:22I have not tried purpose built RCA-to-Phono leads - I think Chord make them. I use a Urika and don't have a jig so it's difficult for me to access the Urika and swap cables around. I also thought that source first might rule and therefor Silvers+adaptor would be better than a less tuneful purpose built cable.
Somewhat related, the Nait 3 has both Din and RCA connectors so I was able to compare my Silver ICs straight into the amp vs Silvers+Adaptor into the amp. The RCA inputs sounded clearer but there was something I liked about the Din input despite having to use an adaptor. I did clips for a couple of members and one also felt that the RCA input was worst. I suppose this just shows that the adaptor isn't the end of the world and not degrading the signal too much.
