Third Times the Charm
Meet the all new Supernait 3 and Nait XS3 from Naim Audio
In the six years since the last NAIT integrated amplifiers were released, Naim Audio’s research and development team have worked on a range of amplifier improvements.
SUPERNAIT 3 has received significant performance upgrades, including a built-in phono stage, making it a perfect partner for turntables, as well as for streamers, CD players, or any other music source people want to enjoy with the signature Naim sound. SUPERNAIT 3 includes a Class A preamp output stage which doubles as a headphone amplifier and ceramic heatsink technology that minimises capacitive coupling between the chassis and output transistors for optimum sound quality. Its inputs are each individually decoupled and hand-wired to minimise noise and interference while internal switching employs ultra-low-noise, constant current sources which are derived directly from the electronic design of the flagship NAC 552 preamplifier.
The NAIT XS 3 has received significant performance upgrades, including a built-in phono stage, making it a perfect partner for turntables, as well as for streamers, CD players, or any other music source people want to enjoy with the signature Naim sound.The NAIT XS 3 offers much of the performance of our reference quality SUPERNAIT 3 in a simpler, slimmer package combining a 70W power amplifier with five analogue inputs plus a phono stage. Its high performance preamplifier stage is as transparent as you would expect from a Naim Audio amplifier, and it also shares the single-ended class-A headphone output of its larger sibling. With Naim’s typical obsessive attention to detail – all in service of achieving the most authentic musical performance – the NAIT XS 3 also benefits from the following features:
• Alps Blue Velvet volume control
• Reed relay input selection
• Ceramic insulators for the
• Galvanically isolated
