[FS] Naim Nac 82 for sale, Pots 8 and vgc

    My Olive Naim Nac 82 is for sale as I am upgrading to a Nac 252. The unit is in excellent condition both electronically and cosmetically. All lights work although the tape switch is a little dimmer than the rest. The serial number is 1615xx which makes it a 2000 year model. The previous owner, a long-standing member of this forum, assured me that it is a Pots 8 model and has had a recent service although I cannot confirm as I have not looked inside the case.

    Complete with NAPSC and original remote control. It can be powered from a Nap 180, 1x Hi Cap, 2x Hi Caps or a Supercap. I bought this to try with my Hicap DR and Nap 250DR to check if this sounded better than my Supernait 2/250DR. It sounds much better with improved bass and instrument separation so I am selling the Nac 82 and my Supernait2 and intend to buy a Nac 252 and Supercap to pair with my 250DR.

    I am asking £750 and collection is preferred from my home near Kidderminster to prevent damage in transit and to allow the buyer to inspect and listen to the Nac 82. I prefer payment by bank transfer but will also accept cash. I do not have the original box and am unwilling to post but I may be able to deliver or meet within the West Midlands

    I am interested in the 82. Can you advise how we can have a private conversation. I'm quite new to this forum.

    While I prefer a buyer to collect I’m also happy to post to U.K. at buyers cost if it helps

    Did you find who’d done the service ?

    The seller said he didn’t know but assured me it sounded fine. It certainly sounds good with my Hicap and Nap 250dr. I recently tried downsizing to a Naim Supernait 2 and even tried adding the Hicap and 250dr to the SN2. However, the 82/Hicap/250dr is still much better so this makes me think the 82 is superior to the preamp in the SN2. When the time come a service by Class A, who are Naim approved, would cost £250. I am very happy to demonstrate to potential buyers

    Just home from holiday so back to selling this fine unit. Sounds really good with Hicap DR and 250DR but am moving to 252 partly for visual compatibility. £750 plus UK postage if required.

    This strikes me as a very good deal. It had been 20 years since I'd owned an 82, and the Pots 8 one I bought here (for more than this asking price, and used with HiCap DR and a 250DR) is excellent.

    Tim - thanks for your comments and yes I am impressed with the 82 when coupled with a Hicap DR and 250 DR and to my ears significantly better than a fairly new Supernait 2 which, for experimental purposes, was also connected to a Hicap DR and 250 DR
