Naim ND 555 Digital Streamer
The ND 555 is Naim's reference network player, it is quite simply the best source component Naim have ever developed.
Drawing on decades of digital and analogue engineering experience, the ND 555 marries an innovative new streaming platform with classic Naim analogue technology.
It features a 40-bit SHARC processor with advanced signal processing, a suspended brass sub-chassis to isolate sound-critical circuits from vibrations and the best external power supply Naim have ever made. Whether you’re listening to Bonham’s solid groove or Coltrane’s dizzying scales, the ND 555 lets the music flow with astonishing ease and uniquely engaging musicality.
Naim NDX 2 Digital Streamer
Newly introduced in the fall of 2018 the NDX 2 embodies the current state of the art with Naim's signature world class sound and a clear and concise upgrade path, don't make the mistake of auditioning the NDX 2 with the XPS power supply upgrade - unless you are ready to buy the pair!
A host of features such as high-res UPnPTM streaming, AirPlay, Chromecast built-in, Bluetooth (aptX HD), Spotify Connect, TIDAL, Roon compatibility, vTuner internet radio and multi room streaming as well as digital and USB inputs provide all the connectivity you could wish for.
Naim's main focus in developing the NDX 2 network player, however, was its performance. Along with Naim’s bespoke streaming platform, Naim implemented an upgraded DAC and discrete analogue stages - it sounds fantastic!
NDX 2 makes a great match with Naim's SuperNait or pre/power combinations as well as many other quality hi-fi systems.
Naim ND5 XS2 Digital Streamer
The ND5 XS 2 new from Naim offers all you need and nothing you don't!
Understanding that, at the more affordable end of the range it really is all about squeezing every last ounce of performance out of the components, this time at the expense of a display which kind of makes sense when you control your streamer with an iPad or similar.
High-res UPnP™ streaming, AirPlay, Chromecast built-in, Bluetooth (apt X HD), Spotify Connect, TIDAL, Roon compatibility, internet radio and multiroom streaming – alongside digital and USB inputs for conventional connections – make this versatile player the ideal partner for any quality audio system.
Carefully selected and matched parts, an oversized toroidal transformer, along with decoupled PCB boards - the ND5 XS 2 benefits from classic Naim engineering and fastidious attention to detail to ensure that it sounds superb - a great match with any of the Naim Nait range.
Naim NAC-N 272 Streaming Preamplifier
The NAC-N 272 is a digital streamer and preamplifier combined.
Paired with a NAP 200, NAP 250 or even a NAP 300 power amplifier, the 272 is an ideal choice for those seeking the convenience of a single box streaming system with iOS and Android app control, but that crave hi-fi separates performance. It boasts an impressive array of inputs including high-resolution (up to 24bit/192kHz) UPnPTM streaming, Spotify Connect, iRadio, Bluetooth (aptX), USB, multi room and TIDAL music streaming.
Six digital and three analogue inputs cover integration with a wide range of sources from CD and games consoles to phono stages. It’s also performance up-gradable with the addition of a Naim Audio XP5 XS, XPS or 555 PS power supply.
The 272 makes a great partner for Sugden amplification too.
All this functionality does not come at the cost of performance. The 272 has been carefully designed and meticulously hand-crafted to sound great - and it does!
