Naim sponsors New Zealand Symphony Orchestra
Naim's New Zealand Distributor Chris Murphy and his N. A. Distributors team are excited to support the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra as a Concerto Partner in 2014/2015.
The New Zealand Symphony Orchestra is this country's national full size, fulltime professional orchestra. One of the world's oldest national symphony orchestras, they've been delighting audiences with memorable concerts and recordings since 1946. Go to their website...
Since the company’s foundation, Naim Audio has relentlessly pursued the same, single, outwardly simple aim: to recreate the performance a musician has recorded accurately and with all of the information wholly intact. That means that not only must the musical notes be faithfully preserved but so must the emotion and passion that inspired the performance. Go to the Naim Audio website...
The N. A. Distributors team shares Naim's dedication to ensuring that a music-playing system faithfully reproduces the musician's emotion, passion and intent. We also actively pursue opportunities to attend live performances, and feel privileged that this world-class Symphony Orchestra performs regularly in our city.

Why is music streaming the way forward for hi-fi?
We all know that computing and networking now play a major role in many of our home music system set-ups. However, when it comes to playing music back in an impressive and enjoyable way that recreates the passion and excitement of the original recording, most computer sound cards and speakers fall way short of even the minimum levels of true hi-fi audio quality.
Naim's portfolio includes a range of streaming music players that can be connected to hi-fi components over the home network either via hardwire Ethernet or wirelessly, giving extreme convenience and ease of use. To complete the set-up, Naim's n-Stream and n-Serve apps allow you to browse your music and control your Naim devices using an iPad, iPhone or iPod Touch.
Next-generation sound systems
Naim's state-of-the-art and award-winning streaming music players are on show at your local Naim specialist store demonstrating exactly how Naim is transforming the way music is played in the home.
Naim's range of network players includes the new reference NDS network player, which uses the latest in high-resolution network audio technology and the NDX network player, Naim's first ever stand-alone streaming source. The entry-level ND5 XS completes the rage. All three deliver genuine audiophile performance whether streaming music stored around the home, playing audio files stored on iPod, iPhone or USB memory sticks, or any of the 15,000 + available internet radio stations. The HDX is the ultimate digital all-rounder which can rip, store, catalogue and play your music in superb quality. The unit is controlled via the front-panel touchscreen display, remote control, PC or Mac interfaces or the n-Serve app.
For the total convenience of streaming music throughout the home, Naim's range of all-in-ones delivers on all counts. Whether it's the reference SuperUniti all-in-one player, UnitiServe which, like the HDX allows you to rip, store and share your music collection; NaimUniti2 or compact UnitiQute2 all-in-one streaming music players which can be placed around the home to form a high-end multi-room system, Naim has the solution to all music requirements.

DAC-V1 and NAP100 power amplifier
Designed for the music-lover who uses a computer as their main source of music, the DAC-V1 allows you to play back your audio files in stunning Naim sound quality. The DAC-V1 is also a remote controlled digital preamplifier with five S/PDIF digital inputs, a volume control and a very high quality headphone facility; Naim’s research indicates an increasing number of computer audio listeners are spending a significant amount of time listening through headphones.
The matching NAP 100 power amplifier delivers 50 watts per channel into 8 ohms – enough to fill all but the largest of rooms with sound – and together with the DAC-V1 makes a compact and stylish system.
