Naim NAC 552 DR (Pre-owned)

Ex-Demo / Pre-Owned

RRP - £20,098 / Our Price - SOLD
 

This is a pre-owned NAC552 preamplifier which includes the NAC552 DR PS power supply and included NARCOM 4 plastic remote, connecting burndy and 5-pin snaic cables and the regular Naim power cable (Does not have metal remote or Powerline). This item was traded in by one of our good customers and is in excellent condition with no marks and has the original packaging. This has the latest 'DR' version of the power supply. 

The preamplifier and power supply were originally manufactured in 2007 but the power supply was since upgraded to DR and serviced by Naim in September 2016. We have paperwork for this. 

The NAC 552 is second only to the Statement NAC S1: its distinctive two-box configuration marks it out from the competition just as surely as its unfettered musicality reflects Naim's core values. It's one of the best preamplifiers they've ever produced, and by extension, among the best in the world.

Like every component in the 500 Series range, the NAC 552 has been developed without compromise or constraint. Its two-box design, which houses the power supply components in a separate enclosure to better control electromagnetic interference, is classically Naim Audio. By contrast, the power supply itself employs radically new thinking, including a new split-rail configuration that almost entirely eliminates power supply noise in the signal earth.

The sound critical electronics of the NAC 552 are mounted on a brass sub-chassis which is fully suspended on coil springs at a frequency below the threshold of human hearing. This method of suspension maximises isolation, hence minimising the effect of vibration on the highly sensitive electronic components. Carefully selected precision rotary potentiometers with precious metal wipers are used to preserve music integrity and ensure long-term stability.

Six inputs on the NAC 552 can be selected directly from either the front panel or the remote control. In addition to the usual DIN inputs, preferred for their superior earthing and impedance matching, the NAC 552 owner can configure two of the inputs for use with the more common RCA phono type connectors, enabling the use of alternative components with pre-owned interconnects.
