Lyric started supplying aim equipment in 1980, so we know a bit about the heritage, the products, and how much they mean to their proud owners. The Naim build quality has always been amazing and that construction is an essential part of it's performance, underpinning the ethos of the company.
The Naim range now starts with the Musos, all-in-one box streamer/amplifier/speaker solutions starting with a Muso QB at £ 799 and then the latest Muso G2 at £ 1299
Real hifi starts with either the Si/XS ranges or the clever all-in-one Unitis, Atom, Star or Nova.
The Si combination of CD and amplifier, even though Naim's starting separates, still has the solidity of construction that Naim are famous for.
The XS streamer and XS3 amplifier take the performance to a higher level, and it;s an easy and obvious comparison.
In the Naim range it simply sounds better as the prices go up!
Both Si and XS are slim and elegant with no frills, just great sound.
They have great options if you're building a separates system
The Uniti range combine a streamer and amplifier in one box, it can be your entire system.
The Uniti Star option also includes a cd player
This is the super cute Uniti Atom, excellent streamer, digital in and outs, 40Watts, £ 2499
There is then a Star at 70 watts with a built-in cd player at £ 3999 and the range-topping Nova at 80 watt per channel and no cd player at £ 4799
The Star and Nova look the same but the Nova sounds much better
The Classic range, mainstay of the line-up, has received major improvements coinciding with Naim's 50th birthday celebrations.
While the SuperNait3 amplifier and the NDX2 streamer are retained we have 3 new products to be excited about.
NSC222 is a streamer and amplifier in a new elegant case. Matching this is a NPX power supply and a brand new version of teh NAP 250 power amplifier. These are on demonstration in-store and will be mainstays of the Naim range for years to come.
The network streamer in the Classic range is the NDX2 at £ 5999, controllable by Naim's excellent app.
There are two other immense levels above this, the 500 series amplifier and then the Statement
So that's what a £ 200,000 amplifier looks like !
