In the past, Din sockets were found on almost all audio equipment. These days, Din sockets have been largely superseded by RCA/phono connectors, with the notable exception of Naim Audio equipment. Naim Audio produce some truly wonderful hi-fi components and persist in using Din sockets both as inputs and outputs. All Naim components are supplied with Din terminated cables and many Naim retailers and Naim owners feel that these produce the best sound quality. In the case of a complete Naim system there can be a good argument for this. However, connect another manufacturer's CD player to a Naim amplifier and the equation changes. Chord are able to offer selected cables from their range with Din terminations and in many cases these are more than worth listening to.
The other brand of components for which there is still a steady demand for Din connected cables is Quad. The extraordinary reliability of their equipment means there is still a healthy demand for 5 pin connected Din cables. Older Quad equipment is fitted with 5 pin Din sockets as inputs on their preamps.
This is the cable to consider when connecting a high performance CD player to a Naim system. Anthem 2 is an extremely transparent and revealing cable and its construction enables us to produce a high performance RCA to Din and Din to Din cable.
Naim CD players are supplied with the company's own Din to Din terminated cable and there are good arguments for its use. However, many Naim users find the extra detail and dynamic information that the Anthem 2 is capable of carrying makes it a very worthwhile investment. Many of our dealers have an Anthem 2 Din to Din available for audition and even in the context of a full Naim system, it is worth listening to.
