    This listing is for my Naim HiCap olive series power supply. Case and fascia are clean and this has been used as the pre-amp power supply in a 72/HC/140 set.

    Will be well packed (in non-original packaging) and also includes a UK power lead.

    £375 + postage (or collection in NW London)

    Unfortunately not. Thanks for asking though, in case anyone else was wondering the same.

    Hi...How 'noisey' is your Hicap? Does the transformer hum like crazy or is quiet chap?

    Original box?

    Don't let St Patrick touch your Naim gear...He will drive out the SNAIC like he did in Ireland.

    Yeah, it's got some hum to it. I can hear it in this (small) room and am very sensitive to it.
    I got a second one recently and it turns out to be a touch better but very similar indeed.
    So... would say this is the typical level of hum everyone talks about.

    All this said, I actually sold it this afternoon. Some chance I end up selling the other one eventually too. Will post if so.

    Well done on selling...it was at a very good price...Why you thinking of selling the other?

    Has a bit of hum too. Trying to see if I can live with it. I do like the sound of the music with it in.

    TeddyCap or Sonic Bliss are quiet...pays your money and take your choice....CB Hicap are quieter...not silent but quieter.

    Mine barely hums at all after I tightened the bolts holding the transformer in place.

    Brian...is your olive or CB ?....So just remove outer case and tighten bolts? I read and I am no expert that transformer hum is due to DC in AC supply...so what about dedicated electricity spur plus an earth spike in the garden linked to the socket supplying the units with a big transformer...250 or Hicap??

    Is HiCap hum a thing? Mine is quiet as a mouse, in fact all of my olive gear is. I can't hear any buzzes or hums, even when no music is playing.

    Maybe you have a 'clean' electric supply?
