what amp and power supply are you using? were you upgrading the 282 from a lesser naim pre? i have a nac 82 and am considering a 282 or 52.

It appears that I am almost 11 years late with this post. The NAC 282 is regarded as the best bang for the buck in the Naim range of preamplifiers which is said to sound rather close to the top-of-the-range 552 (although there is now a new Statement range available). After more than a decade, 16 years to be exact, the Classic range of preamps does not have any major revision apart from the power amps which now have the DR added. The preamplifiers (NAC202, NAC282, NAC252 and NAC552) are still the same models on offer 16 years ago, perhaps with some minor revisions internally. The kit is as good as it was 16 years ago and there is nothing that can be improved upon, after all these years.
