Naim Digital Streaming

World Class sound. Naim Audio, based in Salisbury, England, have been producing the world's finest CD players, amplifiers, loudspeakers, network players and all-in-one systems since 1973.

From the sublime ND555 to the compact all in one Uniti Atom, Naim digital streamers will handle anything you throw at them, playing anything you listen to at home; from albums on your hard drive to music in the cloud.

Why Naim?

Every Naim product is conceived, designed and engineered entirely in service of the sound, revealing a pure experience of music that is as close as possible to its original live source.

Naim believe that the exploration of sound is an adventure that rewards you with a clarity and connection that becomes more powerful the deeper you travel within it. Which is why, every element within each Naim component is crafted to create a silence around the sound, reducing any interference between you and the intention of the artist.

Naim achieve this through tireless attention to four fundamentals in their engineering:

Space

Naim design and build to give each of the critical components their own environment, omitting outside or ‘toxic’ interference, which means no compromise on the purity of sound.

Circuitry

Naim expertise in cuircuit board layout minimises any interplay between the internal levels, so that you can simultaneously enjoy both the quiet and the loud, as originally intended.

Purposeful materiality

Naim only use materials that excel in performance, not just appearance.

Technology

Naim constantly strive for new and innovative ways to achieve their goals, integrating sophisticated electronic design and software development, with mechanical engineering and acoustics to deliver a truly advanced sonic experience.

By managing the relationship between these four pillars of engineering, Naim's listeners can hear every single note in equal measure and transcend from audio sound to musical performance. Naim call this unique and emotive transmission the ‘Voice of Naim’; it’s their signature, their calling card.

This ‘voice’ has been carefully engineered across the product portfolio and crafted to take you the listener deeper through this journey into music, from the excellent entry-level Mu-so wireless range, through to the ultimate listening investment in Naim's ‘Marque’ separates - Classic, 500 and Statement, their flagship amplification system.

Let the voice of Naim take you inside the music… Go Deeper.
