You mean there's more to HiFi than a LP12?

SUPERNAIT 3

Post by Mr Onion » Tue Jul 09, 2019 10:56 am

Just had an email from NAIM about the new NAIT's, and they look a bit tasty, especially the SUPERNAIT 3
In the six years since the last NAIT integrated amplifiers were released, our research and development team have worked on a range of amplifier improvements. The result is upgraded power amplifier sections for SUPERNAIT 3, delivering greater pace and intimacy to their musical delivery – whether it's driving a pair of loudspeakers or your favourite pair of headphones.

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.

It also 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 SUPERNAIT 3 can be upgraded with our external power supplies, power amplifiers and even cabling upgrades to get the best from all sources.

Looks like a great integrated amp, yours for £3500

Well spotted James.
So its no longer a rumour it's on my radar for sure when my integrated passes on.
Delighted to see it comes with a MM Phono input but the OCD in me would be upset because using a Urika when listening to Vinyl the button won't say Phono. :cry:

Sometimes I wonder why I need four boxes (and four shelves) to amplify the signal. It would be interesting, if a bit scary, to run a comparison with this new one box Nait.
