Over the past forty years Naim have perfected the art of designing and building the world’s best amplifiers. And they continue to innovate. Their new range is bursting with musicality at every level.
The NAP 100 is a classic expression of traditional Naim power amplifier engineering. While its dimensions are conveniently compact – just a mere 20cm wide – its performance is seriously dynamic and expansive.
The NAP 100 is perfect for a number of applications, adding a dose of Naim musicality to a wide variety of systems. Paired with our DAC-V1digital-to-analogue converter, it becomes the power behind a high-end system to unleash the music from your PC or Mac. Add a UnitiServe to the equation and you create a full hi-fi system that divorces your listening experience from the desktop and allows you complete control from ourn-Serve iOS app.
First designed by Naim founder Julian Vereker in 1971, the NAP 200 has Naim musicality written into its DNA. As their first production amplifier, no single product encapsulates their philosophy better. Its design is simple and uncompromising, with a single-minded focus on one thing: creating an enduring musical connection with the listener.
More recently the NAP 200 has benefitted from the years of research that went into the NAP 500amplifier. Many of the developments from the 500 Series project have helped to revitalise its electronic design and componentry bringing significant and hard-earned gains to performance. Beneath this new technology however, it retains the values which helped to make it an icon: simplicity, focus and sheer musicality.
New for 2015
The NAP 200 has been revitalised and reintroduced for 2015 with the addition of a Naim DR (Discrete Regulator) module to power its partnered Naim preamplifier. This comes alongside small improvements to some internal componentry and layout that combine to lift its musical performance even further than the original.
As the debut product in their reference 500 Seriesrange, the NAP 500 is a monumental expression of Naim amplifier technology. Its design was honed over six years of collaborative work with suppliers of specialist parts and each product takes days of dedicated assembly by our most skilled technicians in Salisbury. It’s this eye for detail, alongside its remarkable power, that allows the NAP 500 to bring your music into breath-taking focus.
New for 2015 – Statement technology
Their flagship Statement amplification system was ten years in the making. The research and development project drew on all of their knowledge and expertise, yielding several breakthroughs in technology. Now for 2015 they have introduced two new technologies from the Statement project to our core range of power amplifiers.
The NAP 500 now features the new NA009 transistors first introduced in Statement. In development for over a year, this key component was created in partnership with a specialist semi-conductor manufacturer to achieve the best possible sound quality. The 500 also includes the high power Naim DR (Discrete Regulator) technology used in Statement to provide the smooth, stable power supply they know is critical for the audio electronics to make music come to life.
These two new technologies, combined with other small improvements to layout and componentry, mean the NAP 500 DR can produce even more of the fundamental musical pace, rhythm and timing that made the originals so popular with music lovers.
It’s been almost 30 years since they designed our first integrated amplifier: time enough to define and refine the technical ingredients essential to high-end performance. Their reference quality SUPERNAIT 2 represents the pinnacle of this accumulated knowledge. It is both the most sophisticated integrated amplifier that they ever created and a classic Naim product, shot through with the soul of the original, iconic NAIT.
SUPERNAIT 2 combines an 80W power amplifier with six individually decoupled input sockets and borrows advanced technology from Naim’s flagship preamplifier, the NAC 552. In employing the latest Naim DR (Discrete Regulator) circuits in its power supply, it sits right at the forefront of Naim amplifier technology.
