The New Classics


Naim has revitalised and reintroduced its core range of separate power amplifiers with Statement transistors and DR (Discrete Regulator) technology.

Last year Naim launched its most ambitious product yet. Statement, Naim’s flagship amplification system, was over ten years in the making. Designed and crafted without compromise, it offers the pinnacle of Naim musical performance.

Now Naim brings two core Statement technologies to bear on their range of power amplifiers, improving substantially their ability to convey the fundamental qualities of music, creating a deeper and more intense listening experience. The new ‘DR’ versions of the NAP 200, NAP 250, NAP 300 and NAP 500 are available for demonstration at selected local Naim specialist retailers.

Upgrades will be available for existing owners of the NAP 250, NAP 300 power amplifiers from early 2016 (timing for the NAP 500 TBA.) Please note that only new style product with 'tryptych' casework will be upgradeable; older 'Olive Series' style amplifiers will not be compatible.

During the development of the Statement flagship amplification system, Naim's  engineers realised that they would need to design a whole new range of high-performance cables for it to reach its true potential.

With this in mind they began a development project to design interconnects and speaker cable that would meet Statement standards of performance. Through a deep understanding of material science and after thousands of hours testing in the listening room, the Super Lumina range was born.
