Naim say that the Naim DAC marks a technical milestone comparable to their first CD player, the CDS. ‘The CDS demonstrated that CD replay and lifelike music reproduction were not mutually exclusive. Now, the Naim DAC demonstrates that the jitter and noise that bedevil traditional external digital to analogue converters can be overcome and a new route to the real enjoyment of music opened’.
It provides eight S/PDIF inputs, two USB inputs, and is capable of handling audio data sampled at up to 768kHz and with up to 32bit resolution. It not only brings all the digital inputs together into the analogue domain, but does so with a level of performance that can provide unrivalled musical fulfilment.
If you can, come and listen as we agree that the Naim DAC is a musical revelation. Music, whether its source be an iPod, a CD or a high-resolution data file, is presented with more definition, more insight, more warmth, and simply more of those hard-to-define clues of rhythm, melody and emotion that distinguish the real thing from pale imitation. What Naim have managed to do with this product is make digital sources more accessible and in true Naim style, more musical.
It’s versatile thanks to S/PDIF inputs that can accommodate either optical or coaxial formats and USB inputs that can accommodate memory sticks, Apple iPod and iPhone models.
The CDX2 and CD5 XS CD players are now supplied with S/PDIF outputs that can benefit significantly from use with the DAC. Also, with the addition of a DAC, existing preamplifiers can be included in digital audio systems.
As well as providing a significant performance upgrade for the CDX2 and CD5 XS CD players, and HDX Hard Disk player, the Naim DAC can also be upgraded by the addition of an XPS or 555 PS external power supply marking it as the highest performing digital product Naim currently make.
It can also be controlled by a Naim preamplifier remote control, integrating analogue and digital inputs across the two units making it an extension of the preamplifier. And when a USB stick, iPod or iPhone is docked, the DAC front panel input buttons transform to operate as playback controls.
Now you know all about it the only thing left to do is come and experience for yourself how this product can add a new dimension of digital convenience and musical fulfilment to your lifestyle. Please contact Paul or Mike to arrange your personal audition. - more info …
