Naim NSC 222, NAP 250, NPX 300 & NVC 331
Naim Audio launched in 1973 with a simple aim - to experience music replayed in its truest and purest possible form. That meant pushing the boundaries of what is viable, applying an obsessive attention to detail in the pursuit of musical authenticity. Half a century on, its end goal still starts with the music that moves us; an unwavering line from the first Naim products to the creation of the New Classic range: the NSC 222 streaming pre-amplifier; an allnew iteration of the iconic NAP 250 power amplifier; the NPX 300 power supply upgrade. Each boasts more features - including balanced connections - without sacrificing sound quality. Designed and engineered by specialists in England, the New Classic range is handcrafted with care and built to last. Sophisticated yet simple to use, these timeless products aim to bring you years of listening pleasure. There are also a range of ways to integrate these new products with existing Naim models.
"From designing in our best-ever performance at this level, to added features and flexibility to eco-friendly elements - New Classic products use less than 0.5W in standby - we've combined our 50 years of experience with the very latest technology to redefine home hi-fi." - said Steve Sells, Head of Engineering (Hardware) at Naim Audio.
Start your Naim New Classic musical journey with the NSC 222: a multi-talented streaming pre-amplifier that lets you keep things simple without compromising on musical quality. Enjoy exceptional performance from Spotify, TIDAL, Qobuz and more, a world of internet radio, or connect a turntable to hear more from your vinyl collection. The NSC 222 features our latest headphone technology as featured in the multi-award-winning Uniti Atom Headphone Edition, for a sublime solo-listening experience. Everything you're enjoying listening to is beautifully displayed on the NSC 222's gorgeous full-colour screen. Control it easily via the Focal & Naim App, the smart Zigbee remote-control handset (no line of sight required) or via the unit itself: the illuminated volume control is a joy to use.
To drive the speakers - and music - of your choice to new heights, simply pair the NSC 222 with its perfect partner: the NAP 250 power amplifier. In continuous production since 1975, the NAP 250 has gained iconic status. Featuring trickle-down technology from Naim's flagship Statement amplifier, the new sixth-generation model delivers more power, even better performance, and greater system-matching flexibility. Take your musical experience to the next level with the NPX 300 power supply: an instant upgrade for the NSC 222 streaming pre-amplifier. It disables the internal power supply - immediately reducing the noise floor further still - and provides superior, cleaner power.
Finally, vinyl lovers can upgrade their experience with the NVC 331 phono stage, which provides a sonic boost to the record player of your choice. Fully compatible with moving magnet and tailorable to any moving coil cartridge, it easily connects to and elevates the NSC 222's vinyl performance. Naim's New Classic range is designed and engineered in England, crafted with care and built to last. Each device in the new Naim 200 series is available for £5699/€6999/$8999.
