Naim nait 5i headphone amp connection


Active Member
All, I can find a good few guides via Google but none that quite seem to answer the question in a non-mind bending way !

If my naim's tape out is rca, not din, am I correct in thinking I can connect a headphone amp using normal rca cables from tape out on the naim to source in on the headphone amp ? I'm not going to be using a naim headphone amp.

Or do I need the din to rca cable and find another way ?

Please keep it simple :)


RCA is all that is needed from the 'out' connections, you don't have to complete the circuit so just the one pair of leads is needed. Will be a fixed gain so that the headphone amp's volume control will be used. You will have to manually mute your speakers when you want to run the headphone amp.
