NEW: Naim NAC-N 272 streaming preamplifier
The 272 is a high-performance Naim preamplifier with extensive music streaming facilities. It combines the two worlds of digital and analogue audio engineering to create a versatile product with exceptional sound performance.
The 272 is a high-quality Naim preamplifier. Its fundamental electronic design is inspired by the NAC 552 preamplifier and its volume control is derived from the flagship Statement NAC S1 preamplifier. The preamp uses quality, hand-matched components and great care has been taken to protect the sensitive analogue parts from the power supply and digital circuitry.
Alongside this performance the 272 boasts an impressive array of inputs. This includes high-resolution (up to 24bit/192kHz) UPnP streaming, Spotify Connect, iRadio, Bluetooth (aptX), USB, multiroom and an optional DAB/FM module. Six digital and three analogue inputs cover integration with a wide range of sources from CD and games consoles to phonostages. It’s also performance upgradable with the addition of a Naim XP5 XS, XPS or 555 PS power supply and is the first Naim product to offer DSD64 compatibility.

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.
