Description

Its design was honed over six years of collaborative work with suppliers of specialist parts and each product takes days of dedicated assembly by Naim’s most skilled technicians in Salisbury. It’s this eye for detail, alongside its remarkable power, that allows the NAP 500 to bring your music into breath-taking focus.

The flagship Statement amplification system was ten years in the making. The research and development project drew on all of Naim Audio’s knowledge and expertise, yielding several breakthroughs in technology. Now for 2015 Naim have introduced two new technologies from the Statement project to their core range of power amplifiers.

The NAP 500 now features the new NA009 transistors first introduced in Statement. In development for over a year, this key component was created in partnership with a specialist semi-conductor manufacturer to achieve the best possible sound quality. The 500 also includes the high power Naim DR (Discrete Regulator) technology used in Statement to provide the smooth, stable power supply we know is critical for the audio electronics to make music come to life.

These two new technologies, combined with other small improvements to layout and componentry, mean the NAP 500 DR can produce even more of the fundamental musical pace, rhythm and timing that made the originals so popular with music lovers.

The NAP 500 DR comes with the 500 PS power supply.
