NAIM NAIT EVOLVED
2013 marks the 40th year since Naim was officially incorporated in 1973. To help celebrate this landmark event we've reinvigorated and relaunched what is perhaps our most iconic range of products - the NAIT integrated amplifiers. The new NAIT 5si, NAIT XS 2, and SUPERNAIT 2 benefit from technological breakthroughs gained from thousands of hours of development time to offer significantly increased sound quality over their predecessors.
Since the original NAIT of 1983 the range has come to encapsulate the Naim philosophy like no other product. It's a philosophy that values simplicity and focus, emphasising musical performance above all other concerns. It says that hi-fi exists only to heighten the thrill and emotion of listening to music. Today, the new and improved NAIT 5si, NAIT XS 2 and SUPERNAIT 2 are the evolution of these core principles.
NAIT 5si is the ideal introduction to the Naim sound. It features an improved power supply, delivers 60 Watts per channel (into 8ohms) and features a new 1/4" (6.35mm front panel headphone output. Improved components throughout and a revised electronic design result in significantly enhanced performance. Despite its entry-level status the NAIT 5si packs a heavyweight punch when it comes to sound quality.
NAIT XS 2 features a 70 Watts per channel (into 8ohms) power amplifier. Like the NAIT 5si it features upgraded components throughout, a revised electronic design and a new 1/4" (6.35mm) front panel headphone output. It has a full Naim preamplifier section which doubles as a Class-A headphone amplifier.
SUPERNAIT 2 also features an improved power supply, revised electronic design, upgraded components and a new 1/4" (6.35mm) front panel headphone output. At 80W per channel it remains powerful enough to drive even the most demanding loudspeakers. Its full Naim preamplifier section doubles as a Class-A headphone amplifier and is further improved with the introduction of Naim DR (Discrete Regulator) technology. Its input sockets are now all individually decoupled and hand-wired to maximise fidelity and take integrated amplifier performance to new heights.
