New Naim Audio ready for audition!

We have several new Naim Audio pieces in that are on our floor and ready for audition. A new streamer (ND5 XS), a new preamplifier (NAC-N XS), and one of Naim’s more affordable separate amplifiers (NAP 200) to compliment these pieces. First up, the new Naim ND5 XS, this is the ‘junior’ model to the well reviewed NDX. While in a slimmer case, this is hardly a ‘stripped down version,’ it can do almost all that it’s big brother does, all with the same sonic prowess. It can be used at the core of your home audio network in both a wired or streaming scenario. It handles all lossy files and high resolution files up to 24/192, as well as being able to stream internet radio stations. You can connect your CD player, USB sticks, and computer, and it can integrate easily with the Naim DAC or any connected Naim CD player, Preamplifier or an optional FM tuner radio module. And with both the ND5 XS and NAC-N 172 XS, you can control them 3 ways, with either the front panel, the remote, or with an iPod Touch, iPhone, or iPad. Read the reviews here and here. Next up, the Naim NAC-N 172 XS preamplifier, that takes a great conventional Naim preamplifier and adds streaming/networking, perfectly marrying traditional audio values with the future of HiFi. It can stream your basic lossy formats, as well as high resolution audio files up to 24/192 for FLAC. It has all of the connections you would need, and at this price you can’t beat the performance or options that it allows you. You can read a review on the NAC-N 172 XS  here. Lastly, we have a Naim NAP 200 amplifier ready for audition. Even at 70 watts per channel (into 8ohms), this little baby can really sing! Great pace, flow and dynamics, providing a very honest presentation of your music, and an amp that plays well with all of the Naim Audio pieces. You can read a review on the NAP 200 here and here.
