2013 marks the 40th year since Naim was officially incorporated in 1973. To help celebrate this landmark event Naim have reinvigorated and relaunched what is perhaps their most iconic range of products - the NAIT integrated amplifiers.
The new Nait 5si, Nait XS 2, and SuperNait 2 benefit from technological breakthroughs gained from thousands of hours of development time to offer significantly increased sound quality over their predecessors.
Now here and sounding very good indeed. The SuperNait 2 in particular is a big step forward from the previous version.

Let's aim for succinct: We are a small quality audio and home cinema dealership with a surprisingly large reputation. Based near Ipswich (Suffolk, UK). Slightly old-fashioned values, been going quite a while. People generally seem to come back. Although it might be for the comedic value. More.
Much as I know we should not encourage such things, with price inflation very much evident, bringing forward purchases with interest - free finance could actually make economic sense. More

Funny how the 'critical mass' thing seems to work. We've been aware of a high regard for Chord Sarum cables for a while now but our acquired phobia for high end cables has held us back. This one, we kept being told, is different. The voices enthusing were from respected individuals and it got to the point that we could ignore it no longer.
We have had a listening session and I am sorry to report that it is actually very, very good. For Naim owners, the DIN interconnect is a particular joy, representing (to our ears at least) a dramatic step up from the (much cheaper) Naim Hi-Line.
A week ago we had the dem. This week we have the the arrival of cables that need 200+ hours of run-in. Strangely, they seem pretty impressive straight from the box. Changing the jumper leads on the Kudos Titans from NAC-A5 to Sarum has had a profound effect. When using NAC-A5 to the Titans, the standard Chord Signature seems 'wrong'. Now the boot is on the other foot, so to speak. During last weeks dem the speaker cables struck us as requiring an element of acclimatisation. This week it is so much more straightforward. The mains one seem to work rather well too.
Oh dear, oh dear . . .
The new PMC fact 12 was one of the brightest stars at our recent hi-fi show. Have I mentioned that we had a show. . . ? :)
Anyway, our demo ones have now arrived. A little late, but welcome.
Good too. . . very good. More
