Naim Nait XS3 Amplifier

The research and developement team at Naim have over the last 6 years been working tirelessly on a range of improvements for their integrated amplifiers. The result is that now they have updated the power amplifier sections so they deliver greater pace and intimacy to your music regardless of speakers.

Nait XS3 also has a built in phono stage built around classic Naim designs with audiophile grade componentry further grouped and matched by Naim experts to deliver optimum accuracy. This circuit topolgy consists of three discrete stages, each optimised for the job at hand allowing truly excellent noise perfomance, overload headroom and extended RIAA equalisation beyond the audio band.

Naim have paid great attention to detail on the design of this new slimline integrated amplifier to achieve the most authentic musical performance possible at this level. The following features all work together to help deliver the best sound quality;

Class A Headphone Amplifer
ALPS Blue Velvet volume control
Reed relay input selection
Ceramic insulators for the power transistors
Galvanically Isolated microprocessor control section
Microphonic-isolating PCB mounts

The Naim Nait XS3 amplifier makes a simple and elegant music playing solution when partnered with one of the Naim streamers like the ND5 XS2 for example. Musical performance is highly satisfying with a wide range of music sources to hand including vinyl if you desire plus a much lower box count than a full on Classic system.
