TeddyXPS – Replaces Naim XPS
$1,150 – $1,550
The TeddyXPS is a power supply which was designed to improve the performance of Naim CDX, CDX2, CDS2, CDS3, HDX, ND5XS, NDX, NDX-2, NDS, NAC272, and Naim nDAC. It is compatible with the original Naim XPS/XPS2 power supplies and uses superior, fully-discrete circuitry to provide a better performance.
The TeddyXPS in bundled with a high quality TXPS Burndy cable, as optional extra.
The TeddyXPS is a power supply which was designed to improve the performance of Naim CD players such as the CDX, CDX2, CDS2, CDS3, the Naim HDX, the Naim ND5XS/NDX/NDX-2/NDS, the NAC272, the Naim DAC, etc. It is compatible with the original Naim XPS/XPS2 power supplies but uses superior circuitry to provide even better performance.
The Naim CDX/2 CD player, the NDX/2/HDX, and the Naim DAC incorporate a built-in economical power supply, but were designed to be upgradable with an external power supply, the XPS, which significantly improves their performance. The Naim XPS uses the same circuitry as the internal power supply, and the main reason for the improvement achived by the Naim XPS is related to the fact that the internal power supply has only three power rails while the external has six. In addition to providing six power rails, the TeddyXPS uses a superior regulation circuitry, the SuperTeddyReg.
The power supply is one of the most important and critical factors in sound quality. As described above, a significant improvement can be achieved, even by simply splitting the power supply to independent power rails. This effect can also be demonstrated by adding a second HiCaps with the NAC82/282. The original XPS uses a basic regulation circuit, the same circuit used in all Naim power supply, which is based on a monolithic linear regulator the LM317 (or the LM337 for the negative rails). More improvement can be achieved by using an ultra low noise power supply such as the SuperTeddyReg. This regulator which was originally designed for the TeddyCap and demonstrated great success was later adapted to be used for the TeddyXPS.

The TeddyXPS can be used with the Naim NAC272, NDX/2, HDX, nDAC, NDS, and ND5XS.
The TeddyXPS cannot be used with ND5XS2, as it is not upgradeable.
We can offer a custom version of TeddyXPS that is compatible with ND555, please contact us for details.
The TeddyXPS is equipped with a very high quality Burndy replacement cable. This cable is made of three independently screened cables, each of them is made of PTFE/Silver plated wires. One cable carries the power for the analogue circuits, one for the DAC circuits, and one for the motor and control circuits. Having each cable independently screened gives better separation between them. This cable is included with the TeddyXPS as optional extra.
Better soundstage, more detail, extended and more open sound (cymbals last longer), extended and firmer bass, human voices sound more natural, and an overall smoother, and less aggressive and fatiguing sound.
- Better sound quality
- Smaller size
- No transformer hum
- Does not require maintenance or recapping
