"I have been running Kit's boards in my 72 for just under two weeks now - wow what a transformation! Really brought my System to life; in fact I didn't think such an upgrade was possible! Definitely the best money I've spent on Hifi so far by a long shot.."(31 January 2015).

"...boards are home now and I can only say, where have they been all my life? They are just jaw-dropping.... "(October 2015)

Not merely an upgrade, the RSL Plug-Ins will totally transform your preamp by replacing all the active circuitry to bring you the most dynamic and engaging sound you have ever heard from your system.  Experience the thrill of re-discovering your music collection!

A breeze to install - they literally just "plug in" in a few moments. 

**The latest version of our output boards, Z250V (shown above), has 3 selectable gain settings to allow you to best match your system's efficiency. See more in the description of the Z250V.**

What's so special about RSL plug-ins? By using many surface mount components we are able to put better circuitry on each board, such as regulated power supplies and film capacitors, while at the same time retaining fully discrete transistor amplification.  Our plug-ins have evolved through dozens of iterations - every component has been carefully selected to enhance the sound quality to you, the listener.  The result is that only our  Plug-In sets can give your system all these benefits in a single stroke:

·         More musical than the original -  your RSL 12/32/32.5/72 preamp will outperform even a NAC52/Supercap, based on comparative listening tests.

·         Transparency, air, and dimensionality - hear every instrument in it's own space.

·         Amazing dynamics, detail, and bass clarity.

·         Voice, piano, horns - you can feel their presence right in your listening room.

·         MC & MM Phono plug-ins and even remote volume control (!) are also available.  Add them now or later.

·         Built to last a lifetime.

And, importantly, all our plug-ins include a 30-day, “no quibble” money-back guarantee and a one-year warranty on manufacturing defects. (Click here for warranty details). This is your best, no-risk way to achieve an up-to-date, superb sounding system!

The NAC 12, 32, 32.5 & 72 preamps are fully transformable, thanks to Naim's modular design. Our RSL Plug-Ins in effect give you an entirely new preamp with superb sonics that will dramatically enhance your listening enjoyment! (note: our Custom Set also fits the NAC 12S)

All prices include plug-ins for both channels.

We offer two different sets of plug-ins to start your transformation and several input options so you can tailor your own system:

·         the Custom Set - the foundational set to transform your preamp. All inputs go through these plug-ins, so they are most important. This set retains use of the front panel volume control.

·         the Custom Set with Remote, which, in addition to the fundamental change, brings remote volume control capability to these classic Naim preamps. (Note: inputs are still selected manually).

Each set consists of 4, easy-to-install plug-ins - Click here to find the installation video for your preamp and see how easy it is.

If you're not sure if you want remote control now, remember you can easily upgrade from manual to remote volume control in the future simply by replacing one plug-in board.

Depending on the set you want, be sure to order the inputs you need: Jumpers, CD/DAC High Level, or Phono plug-ins, either Moving Coil (MC) and Moving Magnet (MM).

You can even just replace your Line Out Amps with our spectacular Z250V plug-ins. See all the options below. If you don't see what you need, just send us an email and ask for it!
